I've had a leisurely morning. My sweet hubby slipped out of the house early this morning to take care of his livestock and took a little trip to a fast food place for bacon/egg/biscuits and gravy/biscuits and left me
snoring snoozing. So, we enjoyed our luxurious take-out breakfast before he went in and joined Terry Bradshaw and the guys to get the update on football whild I sat sipping coffee and taking virtual fall home tours. I saw the links on a couple of my favorite home styling blogs this week for the Blogger Stylin' Home Tours but I saved the tours for when I had time to take them in, do some pinning, and thoroughly enjoy.
Oh, the ideas I gathered! First off, I've decided that my recent obsession with stripes has to continue because I saw lots of black and white stripes in those tours. I love Jennifer's striped pots and noticed she also has a striped rug. Aniko showed off a striped throw. Shannon has striped pillows and books and I picked up on another thing that I am feeling a yearning for - cheetah print pillow covers. Jenna convinced me that my idea of going to the dollar store to get some pumpkins for painting, fabric covering, etc. might need to become a reality and take place sooner rather than later.
I realized that I have grown to appreciate the color green a bit more since I've married a man who has a house with a green roof and shutters and a green barn. So, Emily at Eleven Gables inspired me with the color of the door to her mud room. I also swooned over her transferware.
