This cutie was definitely my most popular Fall decoration from last year! Tutorial and more pumpkin painting ideas are linked in my Stories or saved in my “Fall” Story Highlights. Hope you all had a great weekend! #gingham#paintedpumpkins#falldecorations
Yesterday at @mwashingtonmade I met @allwe.everwanted and picked up that amazing piece above the doorframe. The colors fit our home perfectly and I’ve never seen anything like it, it was meant to be 💛 // #AHinteriorstyling
In terms of baking, this weekend was a complete failure (see the mountain of failed macaron shells in my trash). BUT in terms of regular life things, it was a success! Plants have been watered, floors have been vacuumed, clutter is put away, and lots of Netflix has been binged 😌 sweet potato macarons will eventually be made... maybe.
When you want to add #subwaytile but you are no #chipandjoannagaines you get a @royalstencils in Subway Tile pattern and wait for a 🌧 weekend to do a bathroom upgrade. .
It’s done but need to finish up blog which should take 4-6 months based on current length to complete anything! But spoiler alert I’m obsessed and it’s amazing what a little paint can do to a space.
Swipe to see the progress➡️ One step closer to this room being done. When Poppy is quiet, you will find her here. I am so please with the way that the cushion cover turned out, all out of dropcloth! #capecorncottage
I don’t usually get into football super hard core but at the beginning of the season you’ll find me watching a game or two..I’m mostly there for the food!!😋 I’m making street tacos for the fam while we enjoy a little Sunday night football. 🌮🌮🌮Anyone else have football on at their house tonight? 🏈

Do you always have 5 projects at once going on? ✋ We just finished enclosing the deck and it's a mud mess, I still haven't found the right kitchen lights, the living room furniture is on order, and I just decided to do a HUGE update to the mantle before Christmas. I must be crazy! But at least I am feeling the fall weather finally make it's way here and I can almost start to see the leaves turn. .
Behind the scenes of what my weekend consisted of...decluttering which = moving things around.
After a year of being in this house, I had not felt like I found the perfect place to work.
Recently, I was in the dining room for a couple of months.
When we first moved in, I was in my bedroom. But, this space always felt right, I just didn't know how to configure it and make it all play nice...until today.
I prayed for healing in Mass this morning.🙌 I also have been going back and forth on how to create the best course experience for my students in October. So, I told God that if he wanted me to shelve the 💡 to take away my desire to do it.
I came home and ate lunch. Mind you, I had a rare Sunday ALONE! Both of my girls were in bed with the flu and the hubby and son do Mass and watch 🏈 with 🍕 on the other side of town.
Then, as I was eating, it all became clear to me. Serious step by step clear. Sometimes when He answers it is clear as a bell, but I have been waiting 2 years for an answer.
I also was energized to clean up! 🙌🙌🙌
COCOCOZY at Home: The weather is starting to change a bit here in Los Angeles. Don't get me wrong, it's still pretty warm during the day, but the mornings and evenings are just a bit cooler. Some say we don't get seasons here in SoCal, but I do appreciate the little changes in temp from month to month. All that to say the beginning of a new season may just mean a dinner al fresco is in order! What do you guys think? #socococozy#bringstylehome
Tonight’s plan... because it’s officially fall and I forgot to acknowledge the first day of the season yesterday. I’m making pumpkin bruschetta (recipe on the blog), we’re lighting the fire, and obviously cuddling dogs. The Halloween shelves are styled (see my stories) and I’m welcoming the season with open arms and giant mums!🍁🍂🎃
My backyard has kinda become a palm jungle. Which is amazing except when you’re trying to get some sun on the chaise lounges and you get tickled by a palm frond blowing in the breeze...(it’s really happened!) Clearly it’s (likely past) time to trim my palm forest and get them ready for fall...
I love decorating with my kids artwork! Something I’ve discovered is getting them little canvases from Target every once in awhile and they feel super professional and it’s so much easier and sturdier to hang! Win win! Also this little empty spot was totally calling for one of my little eyeballs 👌
Having a attitude for gratitude means no matter how big or small things are you are still thankful. So whether you're drinking your morning coffee, your evening tea, or something in between think of all the wonderful things in your life to celebrate those small seeds of gratitude in your life. You will feel more fulfilled and joyful each day!
a calm sunday afternoon, enjoying the fall weather and trying to decide if i want to decorate a lot for fall this year or just a little. i love fall so much but am feeling a little lazy this year 😂 what about you - are you decorating for fall this year?

Well... the nightstands that I chopped 4” off the bottom to fit in our bedroom are finally in place and now my Sunday mood involves never wanting to leave the bed now that there is a place to put my things... what’s your agenda today?
When you’re in mohair country, it’s imperative to shop for new colours!! I discovered some lovely wool shops in Cape Town too. This is my new little stash! ♥️ I’ve been home almost two days. My soul is still somewhere over Africa. I can’t believe I was there in the company of loved ones, seeing the Cape mountains just 3 days ago and now I’m so far away again. It was a special time and I feel blessed I was able to drop everything and go ♥️ I’ve had a relaxing day but tomorrow will be hitting the deck running. I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend 😘
Arrange pumpkins on each porch side featuring a variety of colors and patterns to get this look! It’s always looks harder until you actually do it. You can achieve this look within a day! #LeafRakersSociety 📷 @Becky Garling
Just got this little dude successfully down for a much needed nap in our hotel room 🙌🏻 and I’m sitting here in the dark so maybe I’ll work on a few blog posts i have been meaning to finish.
I’ve gotten so many requests lately about my photography and editing and I feel so flattered. It’s taken me almost 3 years to finally feel like I love the aesthetic of my feed and i’d love to help other mamas do the same.
I’m working on a few story slides touching on how I shoot, what camera or iPhone use, how edit, which presets I love, other editing apps I use in addition to how I plan my feed to keep it curated. Do you guys want a full blog post with examples and a highlight in my stories to reference? Or which would you prefer? And what specific questions do you want me to cover? Talk to me goose, I’m trying to post it tonight for y’all! 🤗 #finnwells#thewellscasa#finnsplayroom

What an amazing idea to live by. Also, if you are a creative trying to figure out your next move, I have a little advice. When you are still in the brainstorming phase, think about WHAT you want and forget about the HOW (aka the money/time/space/resources) you need to get there. When you have the fullest idea of what you want to create, everything else falls into place.
We went and picked some apples before lunch today. I took some photos of P this past spring at the same orchard and we were lucky to get to the trees before all the pickers. It’s apple season and we are loving it over here.
It’s officially fall! My first week of college (round✌🏻) was lovely, and now I have a bunch of homework to do today but I ain’t even mad about it 💁♀️
P.S. This pretty new wreath is up in the Etsy shop and I’m kinda obsessed 😍
