I’ve been adding fall touches here and there.

Although it’s hard in northern California where the temps are still high.

There’s been a few days where the temperature stayed in the 70s.

Perfect fall weather.
Pumpkin birdcage 4
But way too many days in the 100 degree neighborhood.

I’m ready for crisp, fall days.
Pumpkin birdcage 6
I’m ready for sweater weather with pretty scarves.

I’m ready for apple cider,  pumpkin spice lattes, and yummy soups & stews.

changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.”

    Love the bird cage! I think I saw something similar at Pottery Barn last summer. It was on clearance with a dent on a corner. I couldn’t make up my mind to get it or not. Now I wish I had! Your decor is always so cute! Let’s do lunch soon!

  2. thanks evalyn! you’re so sweet. this was actually a score at tuesday morning a few years back & i love it! i just saw a new scrapbook store opened in stockton, katie’s world. should we meet there? lmk xo- mj
