Early Fall Glimpses of Home & Hello Lovely Decor Finds!

Early Fall Glimpses of Home & Hello Lovely Decor Finds offers a peek outside and inside of our European country home this week. Just a few fall touches and new things I have added and want to share. You’ll also discover a few smart or pretty things on my radar this very moment. (Apparently Santa’s helpers are getting their ducks in a row in October since shipping delays are certain.)

Early Fall Glimpses of Home & Hello Lovely Decor Finds!

Autumn Light in the Kitchen and Hall

There’s nothing like the dappled light that enters the kitchen in early autumn when the leaves are beginning to let go and everything is turning gold.

A white kitchen can feel rather cold at night when the windows go black, but during the day, all sorts of different qualities emerge.

Dappled autumn light in my kitchen and hall with Ilse Jacobsen boots - Hello Lovely Studio.

This old cart is still working overtime in our cozy kitchen, and we don’t know how we got along without it.

Serene white kitchen in early fall with hydrangea - Hello Lovely Studio.

Sort of like our grandbaby rescue, Eve. Here she is “on my lap.” (Why yes, I did patch my Levi 501s with a high end designer damask fabric…thank you for noticing how glamorous my life is lounging on a 60″ LoveSac.

My sweet grand-doggie Eve - Hello Lovely Studio.

This grand-kitty was nearby with his brilliant blonde self.

He is also a rescue who belongs to our son, and I call him Pony Boy. It just suits him.

He’s the most loving kitten ever and just turned one.

Back to the Kitchen

I like the reflective quality of the glass since what you see beyond the French door is our backyard with dim Northern exposure.

I also brought back this Couristan Provincia Odette area rug with its gorgeous muted colors. If you love the color of natural linen, you’ll approve of this one.

I’m crushing on this elegant, understated blue one as well:

When Flawless Skin is NOT in Your Genes

Here’s what I’m wearing this very moment and raving about since it is made for mature skin and is the easiest to apply and wear! If you are tired of liquid foundation, applying messy concealer, and spending too much time blending…this is for you. I can’t see much without my glasses so the bonus is I don’t have to!!! Just swirl the brush around in the baked foundation and swirl all over your face. Then swirl on bronzer on forehead, and cheeks. Also, don’t worry about which shade you choose – they are designed to be forgiving.

Even though the palettes look like a gorgeous disco, you won’t.

Ghost chairs pull up to an Ikea dining table - Hello Lovely Studio.
Hello Lovely Studio

For example, Louis ghost chairs. I think you either love ’em or hate ’em, and I’m not mad at them at all. While I own a pair for extra seating (indoors or out), I could probably use a few more. I love how lightweight and stackable they are for storage. They’re also a breeze to wipe off and take up no visual space!

Frenchy Louis Chairs

A set of 2 chairs with free shipping when you have PRIME is a lot more expensive than two years ago, but shipping delays and stock issues are going strong.

My Favorite Frenchy Find from 2019

Milagro Heart Box…Milagro means miracle in Spanish, these religious folk charms can be hung on Christmas trees, placed on a tabletop in a charming vignette, or on altars, Santos dolls and statues.

The heart opens to reveal a space to place a prayer, a wish, notes of gratitude or thanks. Additionally, this sacred heart has a hook on the back for hanging on a wall. Also called an ex-voto, it can be used as a Christmas ornament, holiday decor or a christening gift.

I have a small collection and love mine!

Milagro heart box - the perfect French country decor item or gift. Tuck a little prayer or message inside. #frenchcountry #homedecor #oldworldstyle #frenchgifts #milagro #religiousdecor #vintagestyle

Amazon Favorites for the Kitchen

Here’s the Vitamix I use and love in my kitchen, and it’s such a dream after years of fighting with disposable blenders that required 30 minutes to make a smoothie (at least that is what it felt like!). I’ll never be without one again, and I have never been a machine or gadget girl (I like things quiet at home so a quick burst and it’s done)!

Soul Keeping Amazon Finds

If you have not yet treated yourself to this wonderful title–oh my, you will thank me since it is full of wisdom from a Texan who has done her work!

Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by [Brown, Brené]
Daring Greatly by Brene Brown, Amazon…certainly soul food indeed.

This is a MUST WATCH from Brene!

Acquainted with Parker Palmer? I have read most of his stuff, and he has so much wisdom for us. This is his new book On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity & Getting Old.

A Favorite Book to Give

I have shared my MUST READ favorite book when you are in the throes of despair before, but in case you missed it…here it is:

The Little Tern by Brooke Newman, Illustrations by Lisa Mann Dirkes
The Little Tern by Brooke Newman, Illustrations by Lisa Mann Dirkes

This book is often out of stock. I know this because I have bought so many copies for others. So I buy second-hand copies all the time – who cares if the corners are bent? BTW. The very sweetest antidote for despair I have learned? Doing something kind for someone else. Period.

Inspirational quote about giving: Give like the sun and the whole world grows tall. #hellolovelystudio #inspirationalquotes #personalgrowth #encouragement #generosity

No time to volunteer or serve? Cards, emails, calls, and gifts are possibilities too. Amazon is my go-to source for finding the perfect something since they have it all.

One Size Fits Em All

I have gifted these so many times!!!

Yeti Rambler Travel mug
