Touch of fall~

We have been so busy with our youngest daughter's volleyball,  I have yet to really decorate for fall.  Yes, I know, it is already October! 

It's been worth every minute of our time.  She racked up 9 aces and 31 service points for her team in the 1st round of the Area Tournament, securing them a spot in the 1st round of the State Playoffs.  Not bad for a kid who stretched her rotator cuff muscle in her hitting shoulder a week ago (one she has already had surgery on) and might be fighting a stress fracture in her foot.  Senior year...not gonna let it stop her!

On top of that we have had issues with not just our oldest daughter's car, but now mine!

I did however manage to put together one fall basket.  I had clipped the last of our hydrangeas about a month ago and let them dry out.  I placed them along with a few pinecones in a pedestal basket I had (purchased from Ikea).  I love the blue green color of the hydrangeas and the bit of brown the pine cones add.



Hopefully this weekend I can get a few more things decorated.  We have a 3 day weekend.  However, I think the youngest will have practice on Monday despite no school.

Hope everyone is having a great week!  Happy Hump Day!!

Looks great! Love the combo of hydrangeas and pine cones! Very natural and perfect for fall!

That is awesome about the tournament - not so the great about the injuries! I love the hydrangeas with the pine cones - so pretty. Our hydrangeas are drying out, so I might just have to snip some and bring them inside.

P.S. I love your new header!

I'm behind in my decorating too for the same reason, volleyball and also a touch of club soccer. Can't wait to see the rest of your Fall decor. Hope Kate is on the mend quickly. It sounds like she plays quite well when she's hurt?
