I know It’s been too long. Things have been nuts with the remodel, moving the oldest son back to college (junior year!) and a few other things. I love October so I thought it would be fun to share a few cool things I have been obsessing on and a few other thoughts.. WE HAD RAIN TODAY! I was so happy.
The entrance at my rental has a nice porch and a beautiful old tree. I got my pumpkins at Trader Joe’s and have a few out. I like this new doormat I got, though my kids like to think they are funny flipping it. I bought it at my favorite home store, Magpie, which is in Willow Glen. There are so few shops independently owned and so well curated like Magpie is. It’s on Lincoln Avenue in San Jose and I never miss a chance to pop in and see what they have. If you are far away you can also get the doormat here.
I brought out my skull sweater and pumpkin colored blouse. I can’t find anything like it online, but there is this pretty cinnamon colored sweater that would be beautiful for right now with so much and it’s 40% off.
It’s gorgeous everywhere around here. the trees all have breathtaking colors. I often pick up leaves that I love and bring them home to display in a wooden bowl with any full acorns I find. Wood bowls are especially nice about the house and I have to say the best ones I have found are at Home Goods, so keep your eyes peeled when you go there. It’s hit and miss, but sometimes you get lucky.
I’m going to try and copy this pretty bowl of apples they had last year at Ojai Valley Inn last fall. Isn’t it lovely with the candles? So cozy.
I am fully into the house choices now and so I have been reading a lot, looking back at my reams of torn pages and magazines I have saved for inspiration. This book, French House Chic is fun and I have really enjoyed the story of this family’s journey and how they ended up creating a home in France. Jane is a great writer and the photos are gorgeous.
