It's Monday

I hope everybody had an excellent weekend.  The weather here in Birmingham cooled off and the humidity disappeared.  It felt like Fall which is so rare this time of year in the deep South.  We had a great break and spent some time with friends at their lake house.  The cool weather and rustic feel of their house has so put me in the mood for Fall.  If you are already tired of fall images you may want to avert your eyes.  Here are a few of my favorites that are floating around on the Internet.   

Love this faux bois throw.  The faux wood pattern is such a current look.  I'm seeing it on pillows, fabrics, wallpaper, even an acrylic side table.

Doesn't this make you want to grab an overnight bag and make yourself comfortable for the weekend?  

I like this entire outfit, but that bag is screaming my name.   

I have to plan an evening when it's a bit cool to sit outside with a cozy throw like this.

Just good on every. single. level.

Can you hear how quiet it is in the image.  Totally unwind here.

I can imagine the lake just beyond the trees.  This room appears to have a panoramic view.  

I'm thinking if we all think "cool weather" thoughts maybe it will stay awhile.  I would love a week at the current temp.  How about you? M.


  1. I love todays post title because your feelings towards today could go either way. Are we happy for or dreading Monday. Right now I could go either way too but I hope it turns out to be a good one!! Love the images and yes I could pack a bag and spend a few nights at that home. Maybe if this Monday goes the wrong way I just might try that idea! Here's hoping yours is great! - Tonya

  2. I am so ready for cooler weather... Your post reminded me of winter. Bring it on!

  3. I want to go on a cozy weekend retreat RIGHT NOW after reading this! :) My favorites are the first image and the last image of the bedroom. Where is that metal bed from?

  4. I haven't seen any of these images and I'm in LOVE and need to see more. Are the Atlanta homes photos all from the same spread? Fall is my favorite time of year too - sleeping with the windows open, having a glass of wine outside in the cool breeze, love it all. Have a great day!


Thank you for thoughts on my post! M.
