...and looks a lot like it too!!
I've been hustling away bringing all things Fall to el&em.
Changed up the front window, closed out & packed up all our
Summer goods and made an (almost) complete store shift into FALL.
Had a very fun (and challenging) pumpkin hunt.
Come to find out, pumpkins aren't all that easy to find in August.
I did manage to round up a few fake ones
and altered their tacky fauxness into "upCHICed" beauties.
Learn how to do this in our upcoming "Posh Pumpkin" workshop!!
(I did have a couple lovely REAL pumpkins delivered to my door this week.
I'd been saving this plate rack for awhile,
as I knew it would be the perfect starting point for a Fall tablescaping vignette
I'd had dancing in my head for a couple months.
And wouldn't you know it, just as I was starting my set-up, IT SOLD!
Yes, that IS the point, but sometimes I get a little sad when a vision
I've had and been collecting for,
never gets to see the light of day.
Silly, but I feel this way often.
Despite the early bird shoppers, I did manage to get a lot of treasures
put out this first round of Fall though.
So many lovely textures, colors and even Autumn scents!
Archipelago candles have been a longtime favorite.
They smell absolutely amazing and the colors are perfectly Fall!!
Aren't these colors just perfect for early Fall decor?
A beautiful way to kind of ease into the season.
Bits of azure and cobalt pop alongside Autumnal browns and orange.
I've brought in a few new refurbished vintage desks, antique globes
and lots of upcycled chalkboards just in time for back to school.
Maybe encourage happy homework with a unique updated space!?
Cool new hardware also hit the shelves this week.
Gorgeous designs and shapes.
And remember: we can order in quantity for cabinet makeovers
or large jobs and it only takes about a week to arrive!!
here's just a bit of what we have in stock...
We also had a couple fun workshops this week
It was P O U R I N G and blustery outside...
a perfect Fall like rainy day to get crafty inside with friends, glitter and gluesticks!!
We created mixed media junque journals
and DIY marquee letters too!
Well that's what I was up to this week.
Feeling very Fall-y and loving every second!!
