We're On Vacation!

It feels like an impossible dream, but we're finally going on vacation. No Etsy, no blogging, no social media, no cable tv...and hopefully, no stress!

We'll be back on Monday, August 29th. Until then, we'll be here:

Crater Lake National Park.

Vintage Fall-Themed Decor, From Kibster Vintage.

I just discovered Kibster Vintage yesterday. Their wonderful Etsy shop is packed with mid-century modern and Danish modern finds from the 50's through the 70's. And their minimalist photography technique really highlights the inherent vintage beauty of each piece.

There's so much awesomeness to discover, including these Fall-themed goodies:

Mikasa plate, $25.

Mid-century modern salt and pepper shakers, $12.

1970's Thermos, $12.

Midwinter mug set, $15.

Orange Fall Blitz.

Today's finds were featured in one of Jody's recent Etsy treasuries. I like the subtle orange touch--easier on the eyes than the typical all-out pumpkin bonanza. Mostly though, I like the fact that her treasury was titled, "Mod Pumpkin". That's just plain cute!

Perfectly Pumpkin.

For some reason, we only eat pumpkin pie around the holidays. Sure, it's probably at its freshest in the fall. And yes, I suppose its a slightly weird dessert choice in the summer. But other than social morays and seasonal restrictions, why wouldn't one want to enjoy a spicy, warm slice of pumpkin pie...every matter the occasion?

Theme Of The Week: Autumn Preview.

Fall is my favorite time of the year. Instantly, memories of jumping in to piles of raked up leaves come rushing back to me. And the taste of warm pumpkin pie tickles my taste buds.

What's not to love about a cold, Autumn day? The kind of day where a cup of hot cocoa heats up your bones, and a wool scarf keeps your neck cozy, insulated and warm.

This week is all about the comforts of Fall: accessories, decor, foods, movies and more. So bundle up, grab a seat by the fire, put some water on the boil and ready yourself for this week's chill bump-inducing "Autumn Preview"!
