I've started adding fall touches throughout our home, and I thought it would be fun to show you all a little corner of our "nest" every few days. I started here in the dining-slash-learning room; the other day I had Bill put up a garland of russet silk leaves, twining them around a string of little grapevine ball lights.
I also spent a good chunk of the afternoon neatening this corner - "my corner" - which was postively chock full of hot spots (that's FlyLady speak for clutter, lol). There was a lot to go through - the in-box, the file crate, the tote bag, my pocketbook, the bill basket - even the pen cup was overflowing!
Golly, how things had piled up. (But that's a post for another time ...)
Here's a closer look at those lights:
I turn them on by 4:00 because I love how they look as the sun goes down ...
But, really, they look best at night:
Kind of cozy, don't you think? :)
It's kind of ironic that as I type up this post (parked as I am right beneath those very lights), the evening is golden, gusty and warm. It reached 90 degrees today, and we had to crank on the AC again.
That's all right - it may still be summer out there, but it sure feels like fall in my heart. :)
