What caught my eye in the past month

We had a beautiful September and October. They are my favorite months at home.  We don’t have a great spring more a slow coast out of winter into summer.  Fall on the other hand is stunning, with the colors and the warm days and cooler nights.  Usually fall is one of our best tourist seasons as people come to see the colors.

Enough of that! This is what caught my eye in the past month.

Apartment Therapy shows us a sweet shot-gun house in New Orleans.  A shot-gun house is a narrow house with two or more rooms laid out in a straight line.

I thought this wreath was lovely.  Head over to A Beautiful Mess for how to DIY this for your place.

Okay this is the only Christmas post I have or that caught my eye!  The collective gen shows us 9 DIYs for the holidays.  There are alternative trees that you have to see – especially if you have a small space. Or want to have trees everywhere!!

This is different from the shot-gun house above.  Size alone I’m sure it is at least double.  I find the room pretty and calming.  I like the shots of pink.  Head over to Sugar and Cloth to see the whole space. I’d be interesting to know which one you prefer.  This one or the shot-gun.

Suzie 81 speaks  has a good write up on how to deal with comparisonitis.  I feel the majority of us have had this at one time or another.

If you are reading this the first Monday of November I am now in day two of National Novel Writing Month.  It is not too late join.  The aim is 50,000 words in the month of November.  No looking back. No editing. Just write!

You can always start now!

  1. Yes! I am on a wreath hunt–was looking for a nice harvest wreath and instead opted for some Indian corn. But I’m not ready to jump straight into an evergreen wreath. The colors in that room are fun. Just went and bought paint to add some wall color to the final room in our house (a small bathroom) that we haven’t yet infused with our (colorful) personality. Love how color in a house can change your mood! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


      1. Right–just can’t skip over the harvest-type wreath! Final small bathroom will have a light greenish blue color on all the walls–to complement an old tile that’s straw (even a tad mustard) colored. I like to leave the old tile when possible. Would love an aqua or pink, but I know most people might not!
