Happy Sunday dear readers, I hope its a good one for you?

I am working today- an odd shift with a 6 hour break in-between, so here I am :)

This weekend has been glorious and the perfect preview to fall. The air is changing and its oh so refreshing! We ran some errands yesterday and this is what I wore...

 she wore: Forever 21 sweater; Old Navy denim; DIY boots

I updated these boots myself after I saw these cute booties! All you need is glitter glue and a brush- make sure your boots are clean and dry, apply coats of glitter while following the seam lines until it has the coverage you desire. I did 4 coats and then touch ups to get a solid glitter look.

 Super simple and much less expensive.

Hope your weekend was everything you hoped it to be!

The key to organizing odds and ends around the house is coming up with containment solutions. We all collect little bits of random things, small objects, keys, cosmetics and creating small spaces specifically for these items will give you a more harmonious home.
Trays, canisters, and mason jars make excellent hold-alls. I love the kitchen accessories at Anthropologie- their porcelain berry baskets make great spots for hairgoods, bracelets, and rings. The chalkboard trend is super fun for those who love labeling- a caddy for remotes and loose cables such as phone chargers and USB cables keeps your coffee and end tables clear. I love using clear glass jars to store my nail polishes, easy to see and doesn't take up precious counter and drawer space on my vanity! Trays are a great way to keep like items together- by our front door I made this small display for our collection of sunnies, I hang our more frequently used glasses on the tree sculpture and let the others rest in the tray. Create pretty displays on cake stands, in bell jars, and in bowls with seasonal items (like the gourds above) to add interest to book shelves and tables.
Make a pretty tray for your odds and ends! I re-styled this wooden tray to go better with our bedroom decor. What you need: wooden tray, new or old (you can get them for a few bucks at the craft store), paint, metallic paper, and glue. Simply paint your tray and cut your paper to line the tray to size- securely glue into place. Thanks to the magic of fast drying acrylic paint this project can be completed in about a half hour!

Happy organizing!

Frankenstein's monster and wife from Bath and Body Works// Glitter Skull from Flower Factory// Ron Swanson and Royal Tenenbaums illustration by Nan Lawson // Denim shirts- my go-to staple this season.

I have been nesting for fall this weekend- the inspiration to do this probably wouldn't have been so overwhelming if the temperatures hadn't dropped and we are in full swing for pumpkin spice latte season. We had the most glorious thunderstorm roll through Friday night and when we woke up Saturday morning the air was cool and crisp, leaves had fallen from the trees and it just felt like fall.

One of the most magical times of year.

Happy Sunday ...

A new month means a new to-do list. I didn't make an over all list for the last few summer months but there are things I want to squeeze in before fall. New crafts to try, projects to finally complete, outdoor activities that require warm temps (mini golf and outdoor concerts!) ... I just love new beginnings and a new list to make.
