My favorite time of year....
last week I began my
fall decor transition
with all that I have going on
it is seeming to take longer than I expected.....

I styled
my kitchen tray
this simple style project
made me so

I wanted to feel 
like I finished
I only used what I had on hand
no adding anything to my 
to do list or to buy list

and I couldn't be happier with the results!

wooden utensils
made by Jeff's Grandfather......

a master craftsman .....
theses have a permanent home 
on my tray
besides their beauty
they remind me 
of family heritage
and what we need to leave behind....

to highlight my 
handmade bowls...
tomatoes from my garden...

I brought in some lantana
from the front planter...

I kid you not....
I was so excited by this simple styling....

I was excited to get up  this morning and see it....

I believe there is a lot to be said for 

styling our lives
with what we have

when we have it

Wishing you love and joy
as you style your life

thanks so for stopping by
