Cozy home

Currently: October 2022

It’s October! How do you feel about this month? Do you love it and look forward to the upcoming holidays or do you look back wistfully on summer? I’m a bit of both. There’s so much fun fall-related stuff going on, I’m excited for the coming months, but I also miss the long, warm days of summer.

Glad I Made Up My Mind

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to decorate indoors for fall or not but finally made up my mind and went for it! I’m so glad I did. The house feels cozy and it was a great creative challenge for me to decorate for the upcoming season without spending a lot of money in the process. 

I pulled out all sorts of decor–even items that aren’t traditionally decor like cake stands and banneton baskets. Once I got a feel for what I had, I made a quick run to Dollar Tree and grabbed a few floral items and a wreath frame and even collected some twigs in our yard to add to my wreath.

I also found pillow covers and a comfy throw blanket on Amazon (<– all for about $25 total!).  Lastly, I used a gift card I received for my birthday to Joann Fabric and purchased a beautiful metal leaf garland that was half off. I filmed the whole process, too, and the video is here. My favorite part is Sadie jabbering away at the beginning 😉

Here’s a few photos of how everything turned out!

In the vlog I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I shared this verse…

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

How beautiful is that scripture? Our seasons may be changing and our world may feel chaotic at the moment, but Jesus remains the same forever ❤
