Lovely, Lovely Love

10 Feb

Welp.  I’m officially one of those people.  The kind that decorates for whatever holiday or season is next on the list.  Throughout the month of January, our house was filled with motivational quotes about new beginnings and cheers all around.  I was actually super excited to decorate for Valentines Day.  And, thanks to Target, our whole house is covered with love for less than $15.

Okay, okay, I know it’s still nine thousand degrees in southern California but that doesn’t mean it can’t feel like a New Hampshire November or some shit inside my house.  Since I am at home right now it’s basically up to me to decorate our abode.  Oh also raise our child but you know.  Katherine and I spent waaaaaaay too much time at Hobby Lobby last week but the end result is pretty damn good I think.  I went more fall/harvest feel as opposed to traditional Halloween feel.  I’m pretty sure black glitter lanterns and skulls and stuffed ravens would not mesh well with a happy-go-lucky first grader.  Or maybe it would but I don’t wanna be the one to find out.  So here’s what we ended up with:

I also found fall art printables online and had them printed at CVS.  Then I dropped them in these frames from Michaels and placed them all around the house for tidbits of fall all around.

Our bedroom dresser.  Glitter pumpkins from Hobby Lobby.  Candles.

So there you have it.  Nothing over the top, but I think it works.  I wanted there to just be little sprinkles of fall throughout the house.  A bit more in the living room since that’s where we spend most of our downtime.  It looks like harvest.  Harvest with the AC blasting.  What can you do.
