Most of you know how much I love shopping at flea markets. In fact, I try to take you along with me as often as I can. Last week I was at @vintagejunktionla looking for holiday vintage items. Many of you not only followed me along while shopping, but you also voted on which items I should buy! Thanks so much for your input.
As we got closer to the photo shoot day I enlisted the help of my closest girlfriend and started making a list for my pre-visit to the farmer’s market and the flower mart. Fresh flowers and greens (as in eucalyptus) are really important and since we are only 15 minutes away from the flower mart in downtown Los Angeles, I try to visit as often as I can. The pumpkins, food and fresh fruit that we needed for the photo shoot were purchased at the farmer’s market.
I have been planning a fall photo shoot for some time now and now that I have experience, it’s so much easier. Actually, I am kidding. I have completed only one photo shoot in my life and it was really hard … but wonderful. So with ALL of that experience, I am trying it again for fall.

I have a thing for white windows. In fact, I have been buying them for quite some time. The only problem is, I haven’t been good about finding a way to use them in my house.
Once I put on the new slipcovers and hung the new chandeliers, it was time for some accessories. So first, I needed a new rug.
Most of you aware that I am pretty new to the home décor decorating thing. The summer blog tour I participated in June was the first time I had ever decorated my home for a “season” other than Christmas! Decorating for the summer tour was so much fun and I absolutely loved it. So I guess you could say I have gotten the seasonal decorating bug.
Last week I took some photos of my living room with my new slipcovers. I was so excited about my slipcovers that I forgot to notice how awful my bookcases looked. They were cluttered, not in the right color palette and well, just outdated. (Remember this is the room that we use to use about three times a year …)
