Touches of Fall

'Tis the season for cozy nights, warm blankets, and hot apple cider. I love for our home to reflect the changing seasons, and to make it a warm and inviting place. This means adding little touches of fall, or whatever season we find ourselves in, throughout our house. We've been homeowners for exactly one year now, and because last fall we were just moving in (and getting ready for Henry's arrival), decorating for autumn fell to the wayside. This year we've been able to take time and we've enjoyed getting into Halloween, and it's neat to start collecting items I'll want to display year after year.

As for today, we're off to Target to finish up a little "Welcome Home" basket for a new baby in our family of friends. Her name is Zelia Jane and she's just over a week old. It's a cold one today, so I'm really excited that both Henry and I are wearing thick sweaters. Have a happy Wednesday, everyone!

  6. Love your wreath! I love following you and my other favorite bloggers on twitter + instagram and getting little sneak peaks at what to come :)

    I cannot stand candy corn- I'm sure it's one more of those treats that I think is gross that my boyfriend just loves, but that candle display is reason enough to buy a bag at the store later!

  9. that wreath is so pretty!

    How do you pronounce Zelia?

    Zel-ia rhymes with gelia? or Zah-lia, or Zelia rhymes with Seal-ia?

    Either way, I like that name. so unique.

  22. Lovely. It's so strange to see all these blogs getting ready for autumn and all this cozy weather, when over here things have just started heating up! (I'm in Australia)Funnily enough, even though i hate the cold, your blog makes me want to snuggle up with some hot chocolate.
