Fall Season Comforts

Filling pots with fall flowers
Collecting fire wood
A welcoming pumpkin at the front door
Switching to warm fuzzy blankets

Along with the changing of the season there's the changing of your home decor. It's easy to change up for the season by adding a few key items to your space. Heavier pillows such as wool, flannel, velvet or mongolian lamb give a warm seasonal appeal to any sofa. Cozy up with thick faux-fur throws or just use stacks of vintage wool plaid blankets as an accent or color. Pots of fall flowers, a harvest pumpkin, fallen leaves or pampas grass can welcome you at the front door. The final product will leave you wanting to cozy up by the fire with a cup of your favorite tea.

Let's Talk About Baggage

Vintage And Function

There's nothing like vintage baggage thats boosts personal style, and at the same time is totally 

Lately, I'm all about function and purpose. If it doesn't have one of these qualities...it goes out the door! 

I'm a fond lover of vintage bags.

I own everything from vintage tool bags to tote my daily necessities to and from my remodel project,

 to a postal bag re-cycled into a flea-market bag for toting my goodies.

so I guess that means...

I come with baggage....good baggage!!

Enjoy your day!

Welcome Gift Of Peonies...

 Hope all of you had a lovely weekend. We did! 

These lovely peonies arrived in the hands of our family guests invited for a lunchtime BBQ this past weekend. 

A thoughtful gift, a special gift, 

since they are one of my all time favorite flowers. They remind me of my Midwestern roots, where they 

lined porches, foundations and entries of our family homes. Picking a huge bouquet of these plentiful beauties was routine in springtime.

Now, living here in Southern California, I'm thrilled with a few stems in a very short lived season!

The smell is sweet, the memories are sweeter. I'm taking time to "smell the roses (peonies)" today.

Have a lovely week....
