Autumn In the Air

Scottish Highland Autumn

Autumn in the Scottish Highlands near Loch Ness. 2015.

I was migrating my blog recently, and I realized that I hadn’t posted about Scotland. It’s almost been a year, a whole year, since we were in the United Kingdom, and we became engaged. Our wedding is coming up here in less than a week and a half. I can’t believe it’s already that time.

But back to Scotland, it’s a beautiful country, especially in autumn, and I will be recapping our time there in a future post.

Whether or not the rest of the country agrees, it’s fall in the Pacific Northwest. Summer disappeared in an instant, replaced by the rain and fog and chilly days that require sweaters.

I’ve been pinning all things autumn on Pinterest. Getting crafty with stuff from Michaels, though I now have hit my limit and our apartment probably can’t store anymore seasonal decor.

There are DIY tutorials galore that I want to try out but just don’t have the space. Hopefully by next autumn we’ll be settled into a house. Hopefully.

 

Here are some of my favorite autumn items I’m come across the past few days.

Ronan Plaid Throw from Pottery Barn | 5. Chunky Knit Blanket from BroadwickFibers on Etsy | 6. DIY Autumn Potpourri Recipe

I even love these autumn nail decals on Amazon:

Maybe that’s a bit cheesy but if applied correctly could be really cute. Maybe a leaf on one nail as an accent.

But here are some of my autumn crafts & decor I’ve been working on. Every time I walk into Michaels or Hobby Lobby I want to buy all the autumn things.

I just love the cozy feeling that comes with autumn, the crisp, brisk wind in the golden light, pumpkin patches, flannel (all the flannel!). I cannot wait to move out of our apartment and into a home of our own. I want to go all out for the holidays. I absolutely love everything about this time of year.
