While I’m still making the most of summer, I’m definitely dreaming of fall over here. Anyone else? I’ve been thinking of little changes I can begin to make around the house in the coming weeks to transition our home for the season ahead. This time of year always has me itching for projects, change, and an updated look- even in small ways… whether it be our home, my wardrobe, or just getting really organized, the change of season feels exciting & new. Again, I think it tracks back to the back to school mentality that is engrained within us. Regardless, I’ve been enjoying scrolling and saving some fun finds for fall. Recently, I’ve been on an Etsy kick, so I figured you may want to take a peek at the things I’ve liked lately. I’m keeping this post short and sweet! It’s quick, but good one… click through to see some beautiful and inspiring handmade & vintage items.
From vintage cookware and serveware to light fixtures, textiles, and handmade decor- there was a lot of goodness floating around Etsy last week! The above plates have such a lovely fan shape- I almost snagged those for myself. They’re vintage from Denmark.

I’d love to hear your favorites! I’m always partial to the vintage or antiques, but I discovered some amazing new handmade items- like the designer textiles, candles, and artwork.
One of the most simple changes I make season-to-season is swapping my pillows and throws. I have a closet filled with textiles that I rotate based on the time of year. It helps keep things interesting and seasonally appropriate (in terms of fabric weight and warmth). Simplistic neutral pillows are always easy for pairing year round and make a great base for layering.
Be sure to check back for Friday’s blog post… as promised, we’re chatting Cremone bolts! I hope everyone is having a great week so far.
