I am a fall girl, no doubt about it. The last few days have been damn near perfect...I made an apple pie. I got out my new camel coat that I've been waiting all summer to wear. I had oatmeal for breakfast. I sat on the porch and watched the rain fall on the honeysuckle vines and relished the thought of not having to go out each night with a hose and water the herb garden while mosquitos feasted on my legs for an hour. I didn't talk about Herbert Hoover. Ok, I will miss camping out in my garden on hot hot nights, and running down to the corner for an ice cold bottle of Mexican Coca Cola, and popsicles for breakfast...but not that much. I'd rather have it be fall, so I can pretend I live in Stars Hollow ALL THE TIME, and wear tights, and snuggle in my warm bed with my cat and my laptop and a bowl of popcorn without overheating (Don't judge. You know you want it.).
I've been doing some drastic closet editing in the name of seasonal transitioning (and a big evolutionary leap in my personal style), which I will share in my next post, but for today, in the name of easing gently back into the rhythm of blogging, I'm going to do a little (GIANT) fall image inspiration post. Here goes...
|This is in Portland. It is delicious. Go to there.|
|Pretty sure I stole this from Whatever, Gatsby.|
|this image by Chris Parker is so haunting...|
|So. Much. Sparkly.|
|I want toadstools. In my house. Now please.|
|Portland artist Betsey Walton makes places I want to be.|
|James Gurney's art for Dinotopia still takes my breath away.|
|Epic dino love by Julene Harrison|
|I love lamp.|
|Library campout! Best idea ever!|
|When I image searched "rocker mice" to try and find where this came from, I found the animated show "Biker Mice From Mars" instead, which was AWESOME. Go nostalgia!|
|Let's have a cocktail party and sit on some sheep! Then let's camp out in the library!|
|via The Sartorialist's vintage photo contest. So dead chic.|
I am terrible at remembering where I found stuff. If you know who made the pieces I didn't cite, let me know, yes? Especially the guy with wings, because I want to give him a hug.
