Life As Art

Hello friends! We are in the midst of a gorgeous October and I am so enjoying being out in nature these days.

Walks have turned my cloudy moods to contented ones, and I’m reminded that we really need to be outdoors.

Loving the goldenrod by the little lake in our subdivision.

Coming inside from the cold helps me better appreciate our home even when it’s not in the best state. Our house needs a deep clean before the Holidays.  Still, I love being home.

One of the things I like to do at the turn of every season is style our hallway bookshelf.

Fall is shining on the shelf right now and I love the vintage pieces I’ve collected as well as the great deals I’ve found online to make it happen.

Lovely design inspiration I saw this week.

Check out the incredible talent of this International designer. 

Get motivated with these basic home DIYs.

I’ve been thinking about doing this project and this post got me to take some action.
