It's one of those rainy weekends over here
which always inspires a good project
with a cup of tea
and a heap of creativity.
1. Rain drops falling on my head
Did you know that one of the things that I love to do when it rains
is to go out for a walk or jog?
Call me crazy but I do. I love the smell of the rain
and the sound of the raindrops falling all around.
Though I am a big time Summer girl - rain inspires me.
It also inspires projects.
Hands on type projects and writing
both of which I am working on this weekend.
If you need me, I will most likely be behind the computer
or camera lens all weekend long
#2. Vintage at HomeGoods?
Seriously. That is what I said.
Vintage. At. HomeGoods.
I am in love with these little chunky tables and that wooden crate.
I first saw them at High Point Market in the wholesale vintage shops and so many times
I have wanted to ship a couple back but... haven't done it.
I did ship some huge breadboards back once but that is another story.
Recently, I walked into HomeGoods and walked down an aisle
and found several of those table sitting there
and almost fell over
while knocking several ladies out of the way and sending my cart flying.
Jk. But that's what it felt like when I saw them
I'll share a closer look once they find their perfect spot.
#3. It's beginning to look a lot like...
a vintage crate filled with ornaments.
Another find from HomeGoods- this dusty crusty wooden crate.
Seriously when I thought I couldn't love that store anymore.
Yes, I know there are Christmas ornaments in that crate and I love it.
I do shop early for the best pieces for Christmas
but I have pumpkins around the house and will be sharing Fall for another week or so
After Halloween though... all bets are off.
4. Speaking of Autumn and HomeGoods... again...
Over on the HomeGoods blog this week,
I shared 5 of my favorite ways to embrace the Softer Side of Autumn

5. Sometimes you just need a little hot cider & blueberry muffin
Or maybe a few apples and some sunny yellow stripes.
There is a definite chill in the air
and my allergies can sure attest to all the junk blowing around
with those beautiful falling leaves.
I played outdoors a couple weeks ago and styled a very simple
table with a sunny yellow tablecloth inspired by our apple trees and Autumn.
More on that soon.
A quick note for email subscribers:
I will be transferring over all of the email subscriptions for my blog
to a different service shortly.
Here's what that means for you-
#1 you should be FINALLY receiving all the posts in your inbox (Yay!)
#2 the email might look a little different
#3 yeah, honestly, I don't know if there will be any glitches
so I am apologizing ahead of time if anything wacky happens.
It's a learning curve over here- but so many changes going on behind the scenes means
things might get a little wonky from time to time.
I appreciate your patience!
Coming your way this week~
Colorful rug and pillow inspirations
a most amazing Autumn soup for an inspired dinner party
a little more Fall
and maybe even a little Spooky if I get it all wrapped up
Happy weekend everyone.
