Fall Wooden Stacker by Fayes Attic
Autumn, my favorite season of the year is fast approaching. Jennifer hopes it will take a bit longer to come because she loves summer but it can't get here fast enough for me. I love the sights, the smells, the colors and of course the fashions. As I was driving home last night, I realized that the trees had a yellow hue and are already slowly changing. There is a street in our neighborhood where the trees overhang and walking or driving down it is like being in the south. It looks truly beautiful in the fall with the many variations of color in the leaves. We lost a few during Hurricane Sandy last year but there are still enough for a beautiful photo which I will take and share with you when the leaves have fully turned. Over the next few weeks, Jennifer and I look forward to sharing some of our fall finds with you. Today we start off with finds for the home.

Another thing I like about the fall are the beautiful decorations and the many opportunities to entertain such as harvest time, Halloween and Thanksgiving—just to name a few. Shopping for seasonal decorations and entertaining accessories for these special occasions can be very time consuming. One of the best online places to shop for the items on your list is Etsy. You can find almost everything you will need on the site and best of all, the items are mostly all handmade by the artisans so you know that there is wonderful attention to detail paid to the creation of each item. I peruse the site and found a few items to inspire you in your search and you can find many more here.

This was only the first week back at work after the holidays but it seemed like a really long one so I’m glad that today is Friday and I look forward to the weekend. The Oscar nominations were announced yesterday and I’m behind on seeing many of the nominated films so I think that I will check out at least one this weekend. I’m thinking of Les Misérables. What are your plans for the weekend?
How about a little antiquing?
