Fall Inspiration 🍂

Hello Fall

In the autumn/wintertime, I fall in love.

With what? You may ask. Is it the crisp fall leaves? Pumpkin spice? The rich fall colors you stubbornly wear year-round?

No.

I fall in love with Pinterest. Pinterest is the social media equivalent to that ex who’s all bad for you, a waste of time, but every now and then, they show you attention or give you an amazingly thoughtful gift, so you think maybe they do care, maybe we can make this work, and you’re never free from their spell.

DIY Valentine’s Décor (Mason Jar Vase)

Valentines Mason Jar

The week approaching any national holiday is when I suddenly get the urge to decorate. I knew a lady once who decorated for every holiday, event, and season, and I fear it made a big impression on me.

I see a lot of cluttered up boxes marked “FALL STUFF (I think. .)” in my near future.

And I really just had the urge to paint something. This DIY was so much fun.

DIY Earring Display

I’m really into vintage fashion. I love the treasure hunt of thrifting, finding the one-of-a-kind gems in it that regular shopping doesn’t provide. And I love that I won’t catch anyone else wearing my outfit when I go out and about.

I’ve been really infatuated with the idea of an earring display, or just something to hang my earrings on. I was shopping around when I found a window screen wedged between the shelf and the wall. A tall employee helped me get it out, but I couldn’t shell $1.65 for an old window screen. I left it. But with the possibility in mind.

At another thrift store, the woman had used little picture frames and white bug mesh to hang her earrings, and boom. I was going to go home and do the same – with my own twist.

What you’ll need. . .
