I love the fall. Feeling it in the air makes me happy in a way I don’t even know how to put into words. This crispness in the air today has made my entire week. It’s calming and soothing and just good soul food. I fell asleep last night with all of the windows and doors open, listening to the wind rustle through the trees. And I stayed awake for a few extra minutes listening and knowing fall was on the way for real now.
This morning I got up to a cloudy, breezy, almost chilly day – it was fantastic. We headed out to our favorite market and I let myself venture further into the territory I shouldn’t go anywhere near – the flea market side.
I spent a good 15 minutes staring and loving all of these salt and pepper shakers and trying to decide on just one pair for our table. At the end, I walked away and decided to think about what I *really* want for the next time we go and I’ll whittle down the options a bit more. Outside, there were tables and tables full of treasures, but this was the building that sucked me in. Salt and pepper shakers, character glasses, tons of books, more cookie jars than I could ever imagine, walls and walls full of board games galore and vintage toys and kids things. My favorite: old school Holly Hobbie sheets for Mia! They were a hit – they’ve already been washed and she’s napping on them as I type.
