Craving Fall

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

The last couple of weeks I have really been doing nothing but dream of Fall time. It is my favorite time of the year and I can't stop thinking about how cozy it makes me feel. I've had the past two days off work and I've spent way too many hours tracking down every Fall idea on Pinterest.. I've been stalking too many poor strangers out there all for their Fall Pinterest boards! : )

Oh Fall... it really does make me feel so dreamy, cozy and romantic. All the smells! That's one of my favorites! Seriously, I was making oatmeal the other day and when the smell of brown sugar hit my nostrils I couldn't stop imagining myself dancing around outside with all the falling leaves! .. ok, a little exaggeration, but that almost sums up my feelings inside that are impatiently waiting to burst out once Fall hits! .. I told Hubby last night that I should start Fall early since it doesn't last long enough here! Before I know it, winter will be here drowning me in snow! .. sad face.  

So to celebrate my early feelings of Fall time I thought I would share my latest and favorite Pinterest finds with you! Enjoy!!

I am dying for my own house and yard right now! I'd love to be able to decorate my front porch up all cute for Fall like this adorable porch right here. Pumpkins, baskets, and flowers in front of the door.. we're only allowed door mats at our apartment.. But atleast I can put up a wreathe!

Oh baby, would a cozy living room like this during Fall time be perfect! I just want to curl up on that couch by the fire and squish myself comfy in those pillows! First I'll go put on a big comfy sweater and make some hot chocolate!

What a beautiful walk this would be! Crunching leaves along the way, throwing them up in the air like a crazy giddy girl! Not sure where this place is, but I'm dying to spend a Fall vacation there! Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous!

Thanksgiving dinner outside in a country-fied place with hay bales and pumpkins all over the yard?? YES PLEASE!! 
Isn't it adorable?!

Old fashioned cheese graters on a platter setting on the coffee table for some Fall decor. I like it!

Oooh, I love the flickering mason jars lining up the stairway. 
How much more romantic can Fall be???

Painting words on pumpkins! What a sweet idea! I don't have a fire place mantle, but this could work on my balcony, or OOOOOH, even up in the space above my kitchen cupboards! 
{seriously, that thought JUST came to me! SWEETNESS!}

I love me those Fall smells (so much that I repeat myself a gazillion times!) 
Simmer orange peels and cinnamon and your home will smell AMAZING!

Oh yes, a Fall picnic! What could be better?! 
And I love this little picnic tote. It's super perfect!

Okay, I've been non stop talking about how much fun it would be to have a little party/potluck at our apartment to welcome the Fall! I like this pumpkin serving dish idea! That's so FALLtastic!

See this pretty apple pie? I'm totally doing this! It's already on my mental Fall to-do list. 
.. I've never made an apple pie before either. Can't wait!

Oh my goodness, these are so sweet. Hollowed out apples baked with cinnamon and sugar, filled with ice cream and topped with caramel sauce! AAH! So adorable! What a cute idea!

Love the use of a big'ole pumpkin used to display some goodies. 
I'm thinking cake pops.. oh ya!  .. for my Fall party!

And this says it all..

I really need to write down a Fall bucket list ... 

Now are you craving it too??
