i have the same excitement bubbling up in my soul for the onset of autumn that most people talk about around the holidays....
boots! boots! boots!
long walks outside with spencer (who enjoys summer like a cat enjoys water)
figs, apples, persimmons
and new this year: baby waldon!
did i mention boots? (these are on their way to me as we speak)
as i sit and enjoy my sunday afternoon blog-reading time, i think of how much i love decorating. i miss it. don't get me wrong, i love so many things about our cute little apartment- wood floors, tiny floor tile in the bathroom, cute wall trim and a 50's era swinging door to close off the kitchen- but i long for the time when we can move out to a little place of our own. maybe a little house in midtown or cooper-young, maybe a downtown loft (exposed brick!)... i want to paint. i miss our dark aqua wall in our condo, and i could do great things with rusty orange. i miss my acrylic ikea dining chairs and our dark espresso ikea dining room table that can hold 16 (really uncomfortably) people. sigh....
here are some photos that have me inspired and dreaming right now
photo LA times, Domino
See some inspiring ideas? I need a way to catalogue my finds....
also, I am in the mood for some new blog finds. What are your top five?
