I love introducing seasonal hints in our home a.k.a. Everest Lane House. It really is a great way to ease into a new season.
This time of year, a subtle, (and totally awesome) decor change is switching out your everyday books with what I call “The Fall Library”. Sounds pretty sophisticated, huh?
Building the Fall Library really isn’t that elaborate… You just scrounge Goodwill and garage sales through the year for books with interesting titles, book jackets, or authors appropriate for the season.
The past week has been a frenzy of activity as the kids and I get ready for our trip to Boston to visit Phil.
At Everest Lane House this week, I’m slowing changing over the home decor to reflect the fact that Autumn 2013 is upon us.
In the garden, I’m starting my fall cleanup. I’ve trimmed back all the dying foliage, and I’m covering trouble spots with newspaper and mulch for a fresh start next Spring. I’ve got all my bulb catalogs in a nice pile by the sofa and next week, my Master Gardener friends are joining me for our first annual Fantasy Bulb Order. Think of it as a twist on Fantasy Football and you get the gist.
For me, there’s nothing better than spending a Saturday morning at a nursery soaking up some Fall inspiration. It’s such a treat to grab some garden zen and inspiration in time for the weekend.
There is something not only inspirational – but also so refreshing and healing – about spending time among the beauty offered by a great nursery.
