Kansas City got an IKEA last month and people lost their minds: camping out for days before the doors opened, parking so far away they had to take a shuttle to the store, and creating a lot of stories for local news to cover.
I wasn’t brave enough to show up in those early days, but last Friday I took a chance and I’m happy to say that no parking shuttles were necessary.
My purchases took on an accidental white theme and included a white enamel colander, which I did not need in the least but found myself putting into my cart anyway.
Another thing I couldn’t pass up were these Honeycrisp apples at the grocery store. They smell amazing. My family has been chomping down on them ever since I brought them home and Grant is taking a few back to school with him today after being home on fall break.
I also added a little fall color to the mantle in the form of a branch from our tree out front.
And I borrowed an idea from Ted Kennedy Watson. His hydrangeas didn’t bloom this year either, so he made an arrangement of the leaves, which is so simple and yet so pretty.
These stems have lasted a couple of weeks so far in just a few inches of water.
And, finally, we’re burning this candle almost every day.
How are you enjoying fall?
