Can You Smell The Change of Season?

I know Fall is all about orange and yellow and brown but I can't let go of the pink just yet. I think it needs to follow me through the winter and keep me cheerful until Spring.

I've ordered these two prints to make into pillows for my couch.


I've finished two of three coats on this metal locker for our living room. Yes, my husband said it was okay.
This is a project I finished about four months ago but never managed to upload until now.
And I leave you with this wise saying that I made up all by myself in my head. Ha!

My clarity of thought is pretty fractured at this hour.
I'm not even phased by tornado warnings anymore.
I really need a new header on my blog.


It feels like it was only last month that I was asking what Fall felt like to you...

i'm loving all these house updates, it's giving me inspo to get moving on our house. i'm so indecisive because i want everything to be perfect and not buy anything unless i'm sure i LOVE it. and i haven't had much luck thrifting / flea marketing in san diego. it's boring and i've yet to find anything great. need to keep hunting.

love the pink! and the fabric picks! xox, dain

Everything is absolutely wonderful that I see here. It makes me very happy. And how lucky are you that you can put so much femininity into your home space!
I used to fall out of the bed all the time when I was a kid. They put a railing on the side of my bed that stuck in between my top mattress and box spring, but I still fell out off bed- on top of the railing! I used to cry until my dad would come and put me back into bed. I remember the first day I fell out of bed, didn't cry, and got back in all by myself. :)
haha wow what a trip down memory lane!

Ok your lockers are fantabulous. I just posted some on my blog a couple of days ago that I bought for my son's room. They are so fun. I still have to paint ours though. Thanks for the inspo.

I love how you said "i'm not even phased by tornado warnings anymore". I know exactly what you mean...i think I would have to say "i'm not even phased by tropical storm warnings anymore"...

love the fabric you picked for your pillows!!!

Have a great week!

OH - and TOTALLY jealous of those pink lockers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It always amazes me when I come across others in blogland who are sharing such similar thoughts as mine...it always makes me wonder if "we" are somehow being similarly and simultaneously inspired.

Anyway, the point is I cannot let go of pink myself right now and want nothing to do with fall and it's colors. I want cheery, bright and happy. I want to paint my front door a pretty cotton candy pink. I want a pink chair.
I even recently changed my etsy shop name to include my love of pink.

My husband told me that the wife of a friend of his had a blog I'd probably like. When he said, "Bling on my Sewing Machine" I freaked... I love your blog.

Evidently we all went to OBU together. My husband is Brian Bost... former roomate to your hubby.

Great site. Small world.
