Good morning! As I have been shopping around lately and I am seeing more and more copper showing up in home decor. Copper is not a metallic that I would normally use in my home. I tend to like the look of copper when it has some age and patina on it. The orange color of copper does work well with the colors of fall and can easily be added to your fall decor. I have curated a collection of copper elements that would look great in any home despite the season while adding another metallic to the mix.
Happy Wednesday! It has been a rainy, wet, and cold day here in North Carolina. This is the kind of weather that makes me want to put my PJ's on as soon as I get home and I just might do that. Today is our second post in our Why I Love IT Wednesday series. This week I have seen more and more fall tours with a few of them that featured outdoor decor. After seeing all the pumpkins, mums and wreaths, I was inspired to feature URNS. Aren't they a great!!! Here are a few reasons why I love them.
Charles and I visited the Farmer's Market yesterday after church. We had lunch at the Farmer's Market restaurant. OH. MY. WORD. It was delicious. This was our first time eating there and we will definitely go back again. We wandered around look at all the fresh veggies, pumpkins and mums. It was beautiful to see all of the colors of fall.
Every day I take the long way to and from home. I have done this for some time. There is a shorter route but it is one that I just don’t like to travel. I don’t have a specific reason other than I don’t really like the view even though it is a shorter distance.
Happy Wednesday! I have been wanting to switch a few things up on our blog for a while. I have more changes that are coming soon. I am starting a new series to take the place of my Friday Favs. When I was thinking about the Friday Favs, I realized that I wasn't sharing why my choices inspired me. With that, Why I Love It Wednesday was born. Each Wednesday, I will highlight something that inspires me and I will share the reasons why I love it. This will provide you more insight on my design perspective and offer some inspiration to you as well. This weeks Why I Love It highlight is at home coffee bars. Let's get started.
Hello Friends!!! I have missed you. The last few weeks have been a little hectic around the Bullock household. We have had appliances to break down, the AC unit stopped working, a water leak and a much needed weekend vacation that we just returned home from. Hopefully, I will be back on a normal blogging routine soon. We have had a lot of not so fun things going on here at home but we understand that this is a season we are going through and it will eventually pass.
When decorating our home for fall, I am not the traditional orange, brown and yellow type of girl. I have always steered toward the more non-traditional colors for fall. The first year we lived in our home I chose to work with a purple, cream and green color scheme and I loved it. So when I came across the Harvest Time pattern of Johnson Brothers Ironstone plates at Goodwill, I knew the plates were a great starting point for this years fall decor.
As fall is quickly approaching, everyone is looking forward to a change in the seasons and cooler weather. I have started to see the fall decor being pulled out from the attic and closets and being placed on mantles and dining tables. I started thinking about fall decor for our home. I haven't decorated in the last 2 years because I just didn't have the time. I was looking for some inspiration and found it at Goodwill in the form of a plate.
It is hard to believe that summer is almost over. I look back over the last few months and wonder where did it go. I absolutely love summer mainly because I love the beach. Fortunately, Charles and I had several opportunities to go to the beach this year unlike the last few years. We have had a good but busy summer. Although summer is coming to an end, I am excited for fall. The cooler weather and the leaves changing color makes for a beautiful backdrop to God's creations.
Last weekend Charles and I traveled to Virginia to visit with my family. After years of visiting my mom and dad who live just outside of Roanoke, we decided to take a trip to Black Dog Salvage. This has been on our to do list for a while but it never seemed to fit into our schedule. However, going to visit Black Dog Salvage was on our agenda for this trip and we were sticking to it.
