I love the word, vignette! Sounds sort of elegant, doesn’t it? I actually looked up the meaning to make sure I knew what I was talking about. It basically means a small grouping of objects that creates a pleasing focal point.
Remember yesterday… I confessed my procrastination? Well, I didn’t have any procrastination problems. Maybe confession is really a good thing. I actually had a burst of energy yesterday and accomplished quiet a bit.
Here are a few photos from around our home. I hope it inspires you to put some “vignettes” together around your house today. Someone told me that my decorating made them tired. I hope you don’t get tired browsing around. I guess you can take a nap afterwards. -smile Thats to let you know that I’m not taking it serious. I’m actually smiling almost laughing when I think of that statement.
My favorite has finally arrived! We even have a bit of a cloudy morning with a chance of rain….maybe….or maybe it came during the night. In West Texas, any sign of clouds and a chance of rain is a blessing.
I always loved cloudy days growing up and even more so now. I have a few friends who don’t like cloudy days as it makes them sleepy and a bit depressed. Me? A cloudy day gives me energy. I want to cook, clean and create. It’s always funny to see how different we all are in our thoughts. I guess the best news in that, is knowing how we accept one another in our differences…..even the cloudy day thoughts.
Well…remember when I last wrote that I was going to do a newsletter instead of a post each day? That is on hold for now. My days go by so fast! So much I want to do and see. I’m also a procrastinator. I can put things off and dance around what really needs to be done. Sometimes I will find myself working on a project and realize I’m doing that to keep myself from doing what really needs to be done at the moment. Do I get an amen from my fellow procrastinators? I don’t like being a procrastinator. I’m still working on changing my ways. Oh, well, I’ll worry about that tomorrow! See….I told you!
Back to my main reason for writing today. I just wanted to say, “may your fall season be the best ever!”
I will post a few pictures tomorrow (see another procrastination) of my decorating that I did around the house last week. I told my Jim that I was a bit bored with my decorations and that I was going to scrap everything and go buy new as I was tired of everything. I was half teasing….I think he was glad I didn’t really mean it. But, then again, I might surprise him.
I’ll talk with you tomorrow! I’m going to take my pictures right now…unless I see something that needs to be done on my way to get my camera!
Have a fantabulous day and enjoy your weather whatever it may be for you today!
I’m almost through decorating for Fall! Tweaking on the rest of the house today. My new website is also up and ready today. Visit me at www.BeverlyDillow.com and be sure to sign up for my e-newsletter.
Pumpkins of any size and style, make me smile. Today, I ran into a little decorating boutique called Jonnie’s and found this little pumpkin. If anything has bling on it, it catches my eye and this little cutie had some bling! The best part about him was that he was 1/2 price. I paid $11.00 for this little trinket box pumpkin. 🙂
I began decorating for Fall, the day after Labor Day. I LOVE fall. In West Texas, it is still hot, dry and dusty, but that doesn’t stop me!
I know I’m not the best decorator in the world, but I have to admit, I love giving it a whirl. I love reading decorating blogs and, of course, decorating magazines. I decorate my house and then I run over to my moms and work on her house for a while. I may post pictures of her house next!
