Too hot for fall

With back-to-school well under way and Labor Day bringing an official close to summer we look to fall. Oh, how we want to dress in our wooly clothes and tailgate by the fire. Unfortunately, the temperatures are still at the 90+ degree mark here in Dallas. So what to do?

How about taking a note from the leaves on the trees? Change gradually. We can turn in our light bright colors for fall's darker colors of browns, purples, and golds while still keeping the fabrics lightweight. In addition, change the scents in the air. Go from the spring florals to richer, spicier scents of cinnamon, cloves and oranges. Plus, don’t forget the visual changes at the house. A few pictures and pillow switched out will tempt you to light the fire at night. (But, maybe wait just a little longer on lighting the fire?)

Spring Awakening: In the Pink

It's no secret I love pink. Just take a peek at my logo and many of the things in my shop, Jenni20 Designs.

And though spring means cute baby animals, tender shoots of plants pushing out of the dirt, trees blossoming in riotous colors before leafing out in green, green, and more green, spring is also a great time to bring back pink. After all, pink and green are great partners, no?

Even if pink isn't your thing (although I can't believe it!), I'm sure you know and adore someone who loves to live life in the pink. Perhaps you can share some of these blushing beauties with them.
