fashion : summer fade

Hi y'all! What a busy week it's been! But I feel so accomplished! We finally finished painting BB's room (I think). I need to remove the tape and make sure that everything is up to par. Today Joey's parents are coming in and I'm looking forward to that! Joey and his dad are going to replace the water heater at our old house, and replace the dishwasher here at the new house. We're hoping to get our old house ready to rent starting in September. We decided renting it is better than paying a full mortgage payment every month for a house we don't live in. Exciting stuff!

And yesterday was the last day of two-a-days football practice. I know, my husband's a preacher. But he's also a football (and sports) fanatic and here in our small town, he gets to help coach the football team. To say he's excited would be an understatement. Balancing these new practice times with our regular life as been challenging, but we survived the hard part. Now we're to the fun part of regular afternoon practices and Friday night football games will be coming up soon. HOORAY!

There's also been this LOVELY cold front here that's been wonderful. We're talking the highs only get up to the mid 90s. Halleluyer!

Which might have inspired this

And now for some lovely fashion : 

Inspired by the slow fade of summer, into the golden days of autumn. 

I'm so excited about autumn. 

While I love all seasons very much, autumn has a special place in my heart. 

Just two more weeks until the first weekend in September, which is the weekend I put out my fall decor! I'm so excited! And this year, I think I'm going to put out some new decor of gorgeous white pumpkins. I'm in love with the elegance of them!

Check out these beauties made by my friend Lindsay : 

Available here : PA Country Crafts for only $15!!

Yeah, I'm going to have to order those soon! 

Are you putting up any new decor this year? 


  1. The inspirational photo and the collage of finds is just stunning!! Glad you are having a "cold front" lol....

  2. Autumn is a nice season. But our summer was so short! Could count the really sunny days... So, I hope, at least it will last until end of the month...
