Septmeber fun


Can you guess what crazy thing Sally and I did last weekend?

That's right.   We went to see the movie "It".
While I was totally prepared to scream and possibly even pee my pants.
It wasn't so bad.
Thankfully, It wasn't even that scary..
The "kids" in the movie really added some comic relief.
Kinda like the Goonies meet a deranged Beetlejuice.

I am knocking out my September bucket list and it's only midway through the month. 

Go to the movies.
fall decorating
read some books

Back before Christmas we replaced our red living room furniture with this grey/blue set and as each new season comes I find myself excited to add new décor to the room.  The greyish color goes with everything... but I think it especially looks good with "Fall".

With our old red furniture, Fall and Halloween décor looked so muted against it..  Now,  the Orange color just pops. 

While still keeping things simple I added some colorful silk leaves to an old black enamel pot that I found at an estate sale.
It really doesn't take much to make me happy.. 
I think that it,  along with the ceramic pumpkin that I purchased at Michael's are the perfect vignette for the coffee table.

Of course, Stanley makes a cute cuddly Love seat vignette.

Isn't this little fox cute?

I found his rusty scale perch at the same estate sale that I got the enamel pot.  Score!

Good news.
Skelly and I have been watching the contractor install the new door all day. 

Bad news.
He's still not finished.


Have a great night everyone!!!


  1. Your Fall decor looks beautiful! I found the same thing when we changed our living room furniture...going neutral with the furniture makes it so easy to decorate without anything clashing. So many people I know saw that movie. Not me though. I'm a chicken!!

  2. Your fall decorations look very nice and you're right the color does pop out nice against the grey.
    I read the book IT years ago.

  3. Wow, your decor does let Halloweeeeen Orannnnge pop!!!!

    Sadly, I still haven't decorated. I don't know what's the matter with me, this year?!?

    Maybe it's because my husband has been refinishing our dining table, and I don't have a place to easily lay stuff out...? Yes, I will stick to that excuse!!!!

    But! Refinishing done! Now I have no excuse!!!!
