Fall Productivity

Fall is my favorite time of year. The welcome change in weather, wearing sweaters and scarfs and the colors of the changing leaves. And of course baking pumpkin everything, decorating and Halloween fun. I feel like October always kind of sneaks up on me and I never take the time do to the things I want and really celebrate and savor the season. But this year I am going to be more productive and really enjoy fall. It has been so hot this summer, and humid the past week. I can't wait until the air is crisp and the pumpkins show up at the farmer's market. I have a lot of fall related sketches maybe more of them will get done soon.

This is an idea of have had for about 6 months. This is my first version......I like parts of it but overall not what I wanted.



 I started playing with the idea again a month or so ago and I really like this version much better.







Balloons in love
Hair style inspired by Kate

Oh to be a balloon without a care in the world...... floating in the sky....

I made banana bread for the first time in forever today ( its the Babycakes recipe) so fluffy and delicious!

 everything's better with chocolate

I finally found some Orla Kiely soap at target......pear scent.......look how cute it looks with my coordinating dish towels that I refuse to use because they are so pretty lol. The towels are also a Target collab from a couple years ago.....she did other cute housewares too
I love her prints

Also my succulent garden is growing, I got them repotted and watered now they are so happy :)

 


What are your plans for Fall?

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
