hair did, hair do....

To go along with the
Fall Fashions post,
I thought I would post about the
hair dos I am obsessing over....

Just look at all these ways to wear
"messy hair"
{my favorite way to wear my hair}
{{sometimes not always on purpose}}
in a controlled way...

So, I have a hair apt on Friday
for a cut and sytle.
I am thinking I will just be getting a trim,
and growing it out again thanks to
all the above inspiration!

French trunk....

My new, old coffee table...
a French trunk
 I actually bought it to sell in the shop,
had a change of heart,
gave it to my mom,
had a change of heart,
asked for it back.
 before you decide I am a bad daughter,
let me just say that we switch stuff up all the time,
and truth be told, more goes her way than mine.
So, it's justified....right?
I  love the old labels and stickers on the side...
 ...and the label that says
Paris, France

I like the bark brown
 in the room against all the whites.
Gives a little contrast.
I know I just posted on this room,
but if it wasn't already obvious....
I change things around sometimes a lot constantly.

Hubby loves hates this part of living life in the cottage.

fall fashions....

I think Fall is my favorite
 time of year for fashions. 
I am sure it has everything nothing
to do with the fact
that Fall clothing makes it easier to
 hide what needs hiding.
Either way, it is my favorite.

So, I thought I would share what I am currently obsessing over.....

Loads and loads of layered jewelry....
Statement necklaces piled on top of statement necklaces.
Statement bracelets piled on top of statement bracelet. 
The more the merrier this season for me.
The boyfriend loafer....
Nothing can replace the knee high boot
for me, but if I have to
give the boots a day off,
this is what I am heading for.
grey cardigans....
 with absolutely
anything and everything.
I wear mine pretty much every day.
I am really loving them in every color.
I even think they are flattering in
the horizontal stripe thanks to my
handy, dandy grey cardigan.
(or any color for that matter)

mixing grey with brown....
another look I am loving right now.
My two favorite neutrals together!
Flannel shirts....
So comfy and so chic now.
Thank you!

I have a pair of black Hunters,
but I wouldn't mind having this pair either.
I'm thinking Christmas present.
Boot socks....
I wear these on a daily basis.
With dresses and boots,
jeans and boots,
 leggings and boots.
They also help with warmth when the days get colder.

Now you know what I am wearing these days.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Front of the house for Fall....

 The cottage on Covington
all dressed up for Fall...

 I used all the left overs from
 the Fall Frolic at Little LuLu's.

 pretty darn festive...

I don't usually go all out for Fall/Thanksgiving.
I'm usually too exhausted after Halloween,
but I just couldn't let it all go to waste.
 I even threw a Fall sign
on top of the paper wreath.
It's all coming down on Friday though.
I'm trading in Fall for fa-la-la!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!

A few little touches of Thanksgiving sprinkled through out the cottage....

I have three vintage turkeys sprinkled on
my buffet shelves,
and the Friendly Village dishes have
made their way out.

an old Thanksgiving greetings
post card tucked under a cloche...
and another one propped up on a platter.
I just love my tiny turkeys.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is THIS Thursday?
Where did the year go?

fall inspiration with a touch of white....

As obsessed as I am about white,
I was thrilled to find a little fall inspiration
with a touch of white....

love these simple but sweet
window boxes.
This is definately on the list for next year.

I adore white pumpkins,
even velvet pumpkins are just a little bit
prettier in white.
Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving?!
I am actually starting to get in the mood for the Christmas.
Did I just say that?

Fall on Covington....

The leaves are falling all around us
in our little cottage on Covington...
So, it made me want something that represented fall
on my dining room table.
I sent the kids out to gather some pine needles.
I thew the needles, some nuts in the shell, some pumpkins
and some gourds in a strawberry picker basket.
put my burlap table runner underneath,
and done!
a little touch of Fall on Covington...

Veteran's Day parade....

The City of Bowling Green
put on a Veteran's Day parade,
and my shoppes participated in it....

Thank you Veteran's for keeping our country free!
My hubby and father are both veterans,
and I could not appreciate what they do for us
any more than I do.
They are true heroes.
