September in Photos

Sept 2014 in Photos

★ The month started a bit rough.  I always seem to gravitate to Beyoncé’s music when I’m feeling sad and hurt.

★ Still loving my Rifle Paper Co. Secret Garden calendar

★ Found the perfect dupe of NARS Stormbird, Sinful Colors Smokin’ Hot

★ I found my creativity!  Spent an afternoon with a friend cutting fabric for my Lady Mary quilt out of the Downton Abbey fabrics.  Worked on three quilt tops and immersing myself in color.  Pulled out the perfect Fall piece to stitch on too.


Fall Bucket List

I’ve been remiss in reading blogs lately, but I was catching up a bit this weekend during my weekly manicure and stumbled across an idea for a post that I thought was fantastic (and timely).  I love the idea of a fall bucket list.  So here’s mine…


Get back to the Gym

Kitten-proof the Office

Take some Fall photos

Make Chili and Cornbread

Visit the State Fair

Have our Annual Photos taken

Buy new chairs and Enjoy the patio

What’s on your list?


Feeling Fallish

I’m ready for fall.  It’s just barely September, and there’s always the question of whether or not to wear white after Labor Day.  But, even though it’s still over 100 degrees out, all I can think of is fall fashion.

I’m longing for tights and wearing layers…

New fall bags…


Coats and scarves and boots…

Playing with a new color palette…

Chunky accessories…

Shoes in plum suede…


Vampy nail colors and lipsticks…



Playing with pattern…

I think it’s time to start rearranging my closet and pulling out my fall essentials!  Here’s hoping cooler weather is on the way!
