I thought I'd take today to share my very little bit of Fall decor I have finally put up, now that we are already in November and I should start thinking about Christmas. But I don't put up Christmas decorations until December so I still have a few weeks to enjoy it. Actually my branches could stay up in December and work with the winter decor. They already have little red berries on them so hopefully they won't dry up on me. I just broke it off the tree we have in our backyard. (It's shared with our neighbors and their side had more berries but I thought stealing their branches might put a rift in the relationship, so I resisted.....maybe when they're not home) I also just picked some leaves when Ovi, Audrey and I were taking a walk. If I get a chance I think I will pick some more. The picture looks like it's missing something. Wouldn't a huge mound of leaves around the vase look prettier? Hmmm.....

Welcome to the launch, or re-launch rather, of my blog. Above you will see a picture of the reason why I have been so behind in posting anything- my beautiful baby girl, Audrey. Isn't she adorable? Look at those cheeks....and eyes. She has my husband's eyes......Wait, where was I? Oh yes, my Grand Reopening! I decided it would be better for me to begin anew with my pursuit of keeping a blog and try to incorporate all of the things I love. Where my previous blog centered on fashion, this one will incorporate all things creative and lovely.
The chill in the air has gotten me thinking about the upcoming holidays and how I can decorate my little home and what gifts I can give this Christmas. I have been reading many diy/decorating blogs and am filled with fun ideas that I would like to share with you.
The first thing I'd like to try is a garland for the Christmas tree. I recently read a post on decor8blog.com about a new line at West Elm by David Stark filled with decorations that all look very handmade and I thought, “I can make that”. So that is exactly what I shall do. I'll let you know how the progression goes.
Stayed tuned for posts about Audrey and her birth. She was born on September 6th. Yep, I was in labor on Labor Day. Isn't God funny?
