The Friday Five: Fallify – It’s a Thing!

Hello my dearests!

Wondering about fallify?  It’s a thing, believe me!

Fallify: The act of decorating your house, or any other area, in a fall theme. Fallifying usually occurs during the months of September or October, and usually involves lots of pumpkins and/or cornucopias. (Thanks Urban Dictionary!!)  Also, blogger extraordinaire Lauren used it in a few of her posts already (this one first, I think), so it’s definitely a real word.

Ok so this week we’re talking Fall decor.  You’ll recall just last night, I mentioned I’m not much for Fall decorating myself, but I pulled some things out, dusted them off and set up my own understated little corner of the house in full Fall fashion!  Now let’s see what other people make happen with all of the Fall goodness we have readily available to us this month!

Here are this week’s picks:

Fall-Decor-Two-Purple-CouchesHave you met Emily of Two Purple Couches?  If you said no to that, you’re missing out.  Big time.  She’s this totally cool chic who loves handmade things and ummm… hello… have you met her adorable felted acorns?  Insane.  So cute!  She has a tour of her whole home all decked out for Fall, so you should go and see it!

ChooseYourOwnAdventure-650Be warned: you’re about to fall more in love with Lauren.  This is the most fun house tour I have ever been on!!!  You get to pick your own room(s) and tour the house a different way depending on the choices you make.  I, of course, did it twice so I could see the entire thing.  It was awesome!  Go play at The Thinking Closet!

spiderweb_succulent_3_616Yeah, it’s not a secret I can’t keep succulents alive – tidbit of information I should have known before I killed all of mine: they need direct sunlight.  Lots of it!  I don’t get direct sunlight for more than 2 hours in my house because all of our windows are North and South-facing.  So succulents die at my hands.  But hey, if you have light (or if you wouldn’t intend on re-planting these later), you should totally try this project out!  I think it looks pretty darn clever!  Found via Apartment Therapy, but the creator is Kelly Smith Trimble and you can see her work on The DIY Network blog.

live-a-more-colorful-lifeCompletely.  Obsessed.  I love how daring and bold this pumpkin is.  K, wow, there’s a sentence I NEVER thought I would use!  Seriously, go back and read that.  It’s about a PUMPKIN.  A totally awesome and colourful pumpkin by Sibylle of Funky Time.  LOVE.

 

I’ll be back tomorrow.  Yep… I’ve written 11 in a row without a single day missed.  Can I make it to 31???

Let’s find out together!

  1. Oh my goodness such fabulous fall picks Thalita!! Awesome acorns… I love Lauren’s fall tour… and succulents in a pumpkin! How cute!!

  2. Ok I was supposed to paint pumpkins today. Apparently that went well considering I made school treats instead. Love that pumpkin!

  3. Yay! Fall-ify is most DEFINITELY a word (or so I have declared) and the fact that you’re using it, too, makes it all the more official. Done. I’m calling Merriam-Webster now so they know to add it to their next addition. :-)

    Girrrrrl, thanks a heap for the double shout-outs in this post (Whaaaat?! #honored). And I was swooning over those darling felt acorns of Emily’s earlier in the week; so delighted to see them showcased here. And that pumpkin is bold in the best way! Can’t wait to see how she did it.

    Yes, I so believe you can do 31 straight days of posts – - but if you don’t, you’re still a rockstar in my eyes. 11 posts in a row deserves a standing ovation! So, Thalita, right here right now in Starbucks, I’m standing up for you. (Stare all you want, people. Thalita deserves the recognition!)

    • YESSSSSSS!!! I hope you get credit for coming up with it! haha

      I know. I have had a few comments on the acorns already… they really ARE awesome! The pumpkin is so good, it makes me wish I was allowed to buy a plastic one at the dollar store to try this out on. But no can do. 2014, maybe.

      Oh and thank you thank you thank you! haha I love the imagery there… I definitely laughed at that one :)

  4. Awww, Thalita!! You’re the sweetest! I am so honored to have made the Friday 5! <3 you!

  5. And I’m already in awe of how many consecutive days you’ve posted! Getting three out a week is a struggle for me! Go Girl Go!

    • haha thank you! I do usually struggle with 2-3 a week, but I guess that’s also why I only put myself through this once a year. It’s a major challenge!
