As the beginning of October approaches (and temperatures start to drop), I’m REALLY looking forward to fall – specifically – nights by the fire! A few weeks ago my family was kind enough to help me stock up on firewood, so I should be all set there (for a short while at least).
The high for today is supposed to be 78 and the low is 50, so I’m really hoping I get to cozy up by the fire for the first time tonight!
In diligent preparation, I replaced my cheerful, summer decor (an old croquet set) with my fireplace tools. I love the look of both -they’re unique, colorful, fun, seasonal… and in this case – useful. After Halloween, I’ll replace the pumpkin with an amazing pair of vintage ice skates that mom and I got at an estate sale in Michigan (one of my favorite finds).
Cheers to fall, ya’ll!
Sidenote: Last year I learned my lesson about putting pumpkins too close to the flame. It was melting pumpkin mess (oops)! This one should be perfectly safe though (whew).
