Weekend View

Happy weekend.

Labor Day weekend is a long weekend that signals that summer is winding down a bit 
and crisp and colorful autumn is starting to make an appearance. 
It is also one of those weekends that might involve a lot of relaxing
no matter where you go or what you do.

This week, the weekend view is all about 
pumpkins, twiggy trees, and my latest rose gold crush.


It is a busy few days over here involving a little of this and that, pumpkins and a big blue lake for a bit. And for the weekend view- it starts with pumpkins.

Yes, indeed. While out wandering this weekend-  found a farm that had a few pumpkins ready to go... and brought some of them home. On top of that- look at how gorgeous this property is as a setting? It was really so beautiful and inspiring. 

Rose Gold LOVE

The prettiest rose gold flatware arrived the other day... and I can pretty much tell you it was instant love as I unwrapped it. You will be getting a closer look at this coming your way very soon- but with so many questions about it on Instagram already- you can find it HERE on sale this weekend.  {affiliate}

Hammock Time

Though it is September and starting to chill down a bit, that lazy hammock time is calling me. I am working on a few stylings involving September hammocks that will be coming your way- like  simple ideas for creating a relaxing 'escape' right in your own backyard.

You can read more about this hammock HERE

Twinkle Twinkle

In between all the pumpkins and autumn appearing around the house, I am working on shooting the most darling little twiggy Christmas trees. 

I shared a sneak peek on Thursday-and had so many questions on where to get them- and they are marked down to half price this weekend for all you early shoppers. Find them HERE

I am talking table lamps and finding your perfect style.

Coming your way:

A few peeks at my autumn kitchen & recipe you won't want to miss
an autumn home tour with HomeGoods and a group of amazing bloggers
and an autumn tour out in the cottage as well
I have been working on video again- so you will be seeing that very soon
along with the month in review
a diy fireplace makeover 
much more


Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!

  2. Great looking photos, Love the little twiggy tree's. The silverware is to die for :) and mantel light is sweet.
    Happy Sunday to you!
