I'm a tad bit embarrassed that I'm just getting my fall decor up now - so "late" in October. Seems reasonable enough, but when I think about how I had everything up at the end of August last year, I feel really far behind. Fall is my favorite time to decorate and I like to keep it around as long as possible since the rich warm colors work so well in our home so I'm surprised I waited so long. But if it's one thing I've learned over the years when it comes to home decor, if you force it, you'll never be happy with it.
This year I needed inspiration to get moving with my fall decor. I wasn't about to just pull out my totes of fall decor from last year and put everything in the same exact place. There is no fun or creativity in that. I just had to be patient and wait for something to come along to get me moving.
