We all know those gray areas.. right after New Year but before Valentines Day (Or until April if you skip the holiday decorating) where the mantel starts to look lonely. Late Summer early Fall does that to me. Too early for pumpkins– that’ll be closer to the end of September, but it’s time to put the sea shells away ya know? Don’t get me started on how badly I want to light an apple pie candle but I. Can. Not. Make. Myself. Do. It. when some days are still 87 degrees. I just can’t. Once I see a leaf fall, it’s on. But for now, Michigan is playing with my emotions and I can’t.
So I tried to convey that with a little seasonal change in the family room. Which, I might add is still everything but comfortable, cozy and lovable thanks to me ripping up the carpet and we haven’t decided yet if we want to refinish the floors or add carpet. Don’t get me started. They’re gross and make me not want to even be in the room.
But back to the subject at hand, globes. More specifically WORLD globes are pretty awesome in my mind. I just love the colors, the blues and greens and mustard– I’ve been sprinkling it around my house lately and I’m thinking it’s slowly making its way to being my house scheme. Plus they remind me of school, which happens in September. Do you see where I’m going? Books, Maps, Wheat and some so dang cute faces and you have yourself a fun mantel.
Oh— and I dragged the dresser in here a while ago, I like it! It fits the family room better and ties in to the white mantel..faux mantel.. ahem. Not to mention the storage! My
12 year old husband can fit so many video games in there.. And with the book case being gone there’s more room for activities in the whole room. ;) I would like to add something to the other side of the dresser since it looks so sparse on that side– so lonely. But when you have a small house you’re very particular about what you bring in so the verdict is still out on what we’ll put there, a plant? Another chair? We’ll see.
Actually, I don’t think I even shared the new TV– considering I went on a blogging hiatus for what seemed like years, we got rid of our big giant box of a TV and were gifted this TV for our Anniversary/Birthdays last year and it’s been pretty freakin’ awesome to have a TV that works correctly. Plus it’s light, and not so in your face.. Before I was all “Pshhh we don’t even watch t.v who cares?” But I get it now. It’s like the movies are in real life it’s so clear!? Why didn’t y’all tell me?! Ha ha.. This post is so scattered, I’m sorry. Now that the girls are in school I’m getting a little loopy just writing my thoughts. :) We’ll get through this together *wink* Happy Friday peeps!
