Adventures in Decorating: Fall 2013 beginsPosted: 2013/07/27 | Author: Lola | Filed under: Decorating | Tags: Decorating, Decorating process, Fall Decorating, Fall Home Decor, Interior design, PInterest | Leave a comment
I decided to show you the process my brain goes through when I decorate.
The air has gone to 55 at night at 75 during the day. I know more warm days are coming, but I’m ready to start prepping for Fall.
When I am planning my decor each season I start with a trip to the craft stores and some pinning time on Pinterest.
About this time every year the craft stores start putting out their Fall stuff.
This is the decorating board I am housing all my ideas on.
I also still need to clean up the basement and then properly sort and determine what I’m using this year, and what I might need to buy to supplement.
As I move through each stage of the process, I will outline for you. Maybe I make it harder than it has be be, I don’t know. But it’s how my mind works and decorating always relaxes me!
What are you plans or thoughts on all the new fall decor, burlap and other natural items appear to still be in fashion! I also found a 50 yard spool of wired burlap ribbon at Costco!
Can’t wait to use it. Happy adventures in decorating Lovies!

A few Christmases ago I bought Babu every x-man comic from inception to like 300 something. Some in bound hard cover books. Some in lots, some auction swiped from geeks. We let the kids see them and I had them pick some out to use as decor. Then I made MiniMe, The Destroyer, and Babu all artwork of their own to decorate and add color in the playroom. They are not hung yet. But I’m pleased a small project is done. I used foamy sticky squares to hold the top row in place in case the pressure from the frame oat enough. I also built from the bottom up and flipped the frame like a pancake before securing the backs.

I’ve been keeping some stuff for a friend in my basement. She graciously allowed me carte blanche access to all her craft stuff. I found these and other treasures so far. I have a few small projects in mind. And I still have to clean up the basement !! Stay tuned

Good Enough DIY Memo Wall Boards
I finally finished MiniMe’s room to good enough. I can live it until after gardening season is over in the fall. This will leave me time to be patient while I wait for the perfect queen size french bed, nightstand, and chair to match her room. Anyone got an old curvy wing back chair I can paint or try recovering? I can barter for some organizing, purging or decorating advice. I’m handy too, just saying. I will write up the tips, tricks and lessons learned later. I still need to get the Easter Decor completed, yes I’m still tinkering, and yes Babu has told me I have ” a problem”. For now here is the final result, I hoped for a Home Decorator magazine clean and tidy room, but she will be 25 before I can achieve it and she is 10 now. Please excuse the mess. 🙂 Have a great week Lovies, I had a cortisone shot in my foot Thursday and hope to be on the pavement next Saturday!
