Time to Start Thinking about Fall
Hard to believe, isn't it? That fall is just about upon us.
It's still super hot here but by the end of the month things will cool down greatly.
Funny how I dread the change in weather each season.
I get used to going without a coat and having on cooler clothes and next spring
I'll feel weird about giving up my coat and sweaters and tights.
Especially tights...I love them...because they keep my legs warm.
Right now I can't imagine ever wearing a pair again.
But I will.
It's time to drag out all my fall stuff and change the house up.
It's hard for me to feel like doing it when it's still so hot out.
But I know the urge will hit soon.
Gosh I wish I had a huge white urn like that to fill with pumpkins.
I just love this porch. You can almost feel the cool crisp fall air in this photo.
Have you been following Amy's journey over at
She opened her second store location in Boston over the weekend and it's a huge success!
Interior of Maison Decor - Boston
She's a retailer for Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.
Dogs are welcome in the store and they came in droves.
Dogs are very into french decor it seems.
The other day when I talked about fake Mr. Perfect Blogger Husbands....I didn't mean
Amy's husband. He truly is the perfect blogging husband.
He's up for every idea of her's and provides the support she needs to get her ideas accomplished.
Which usually means transporting furniture and stuff she buys for the store.
Amy has said she knows how lucky she is...because she's had it the other way.
I'm so happy that someone I know really does have a great husband.
She has said in the past that she is almost hesitant to mention him on the blog for
fear people will think she is overly romanticizing their relationship.
She knows she is very very fortunate.
I hope Amy didn't think I was lumping her in with faux blogger husbands when I wrote the other day.
I really think there is probably a higher percentage of supportive husbands on the blogs.
Not that many don't embellish or leave out the bad stuff...but the husbands that enjoy
renovation and vintage things are going to be the ones with wives that also share
that interest and blog about it.
But then there are others that wrote to me and said they don't mention their husbands on the blog
because they aren't supportive.
And they feel like they are struggling to be creative in spite of their spouse.
I've been there too....trying so hard to accomplish what I want to do with a partner
that is totally against everything you are trying to do.
Right now....I'm just glad that I can do what I want and there is no one to tell me different.
No one to keep happy but myself.
