Giving you a peek into the past week for me and Sonata Home Design. The week in review, my favorite finds on the web, and just a little “this and that.” I always want to give you great ideas, inspiration, creative motivation, light bulb moments, and a hearty “You can do it!”

I know I am not alone in my passion for home decorating, crafting, and nesting. So, please join me each week for this creative Saturday jolt!

Happy Fall!

Every year I say that this is my favorite season.

Of course, I do the same with spring and winter on the day of the first snowfall!

My Fall Morning Guilty Pleasure

With the beautiful fall mornings we having, I find that I have fallen into a lovely new morning routine.

Let me preface by thanking Scooters Coffee for offering FREE brew coffee throughout the month of September!

To get my September mornings started, Bentley and I hop in the car and make a quick trip to Scooters to get a delicious large dark roast coffee. Yum!

Once we are home, I flip on the string cafe lights on the patio and light a citronella candle. (Morning bugs love to bite me!)

Bentley and I spend the next hour or so on the patio as I listen to the news, read my email, work on my Pinterest boards, write blog posts…and breathe in the glorious morning air!

All with Bentley by my side. Fall mornings are the BEST!

Movie Time

Believe it or not, my husband and I went to the movie theatre for the first together in several YEARS!

I think we had stopped going during the pandemic and this habit just stuck.

We loved seeing the Barbie movie and splurging on a big bucket of popcorn…both of us wearing shades of pink!

Decorating for Fall

Fall color is exploding inside the house!

I love to place something “impactful” in the front entry.

This fall arrangement with faux pomegranate stems does the trick!

I never tire of fall mums!

They bring such beautiful colors to the party!

I have learned over the years that they last a lot longer if I don’t put them in direct sun.

This gorgeous beauty loves the dappled sun she gets and she sits beside a patio bench.

By the way…as of this publish date, this Amalfi bench is 25% off!
