The 2016 Fall Holiday Shelf!

Well, it’s been a while, folks! I know it’s the first day of Fall, and I’ve been pretty quiet. No worries, I’m still around – my days are simply full of poop and formula and naps and…BABIES!

The girls are doing so well! They actually just moved off the preemie charts onto the “regular baby” charts, and their pediatrician (and their mom and dad, of course) are thrilled with how well they’re progressing! We are so thankful!

But another thing I’m thankful for is FALL. If you’ve been around the blog at all, you know I LOVE FALL! It’s my favorite season, and I really talk it up. Especially in Florida. Where it’s still 90 degrees during the Fall, I HAVE to talk it up, right?!

Sooo…Happy FIRST DAY OF FALL to everyone! In honor of this blessed season, I wanted to share with you nothing less than my 2016 Fall Holiday Shelf! (Because giving birth to twin girls one-and-a-half-months early is no excuse for NOT decorating for Fall! At least around our house!) When this time of the year rolls around, it’s still #myreason for jumping into the season of decorating!

And I’m totally stoked to share this particular shelf design because the elements came from the awesome folks of At Home!

Now, if you’ve never been to an At Home store, stop right now, head over to www.athome.com and check it out! It’s like an enormous warehouse full of all things wonderful for your home, inside and out! Check out what I found for the shelf…

Don’t you LOVE the “coastal” look? (I mean, kinda paying tribute to the lovely state where I live with these Fall accents, right?)

The Summer Holiday Shelf!

According the calendar, it’s now summer! Well…it’s been summer for a while now – but I’m not as quick on the draw as I used to be, that’s for sure! All I know is, school is out, the temps are rising, and I am officially the hottest pregnant-with-twins-woman who has ever been on the face of the planet pregnant with twins. I really am. In fact, what’s the hottest planet? Is it Mars? Maybe THAT’S the face of the planet I’m on. I’m HOT, y’all. I KNOW it’s summer!

So, if it’s summer, then of course, it’s time for me to reveal my Summer Holiday Shelf! Here we go…

The more shelf designs I do, the more I think that simple is best. But I love how this one pops with the yellow, black and white!

The 2016 Spring Holiday Shelf!

Well, folks, by the calendar, it’s SPRING! 

I have a love/hate relationship with Spring, myself. I love it because everything starts going towards bright and cheerful and colorful. I hate it because I can’t stop sneezing, and normally develop some kind of sinus infection or bronchitis attack. Gotta take the good with the bad, I guess!

And one of the good things is, I can make it look like Spring INSIDE my house without sneezing a bit! Allow me to present to you…the 2016 Spring Holiday Shelf!

The centerpiece of this design is clearly the glass milk jugs in the wire basket.

I used all the red heart cards for a fun and messy little banner. I kinda like that they don’t all hang perfectly!
