Home for the Holidays Class

I know, I know, it's only September. But you know what comes after September? Three amazing months of holiday madness. I know I'm not the only one thinking about it, because Hobby Lobby has had their Christmas stuff out for months, and Halloween FINALLY hit our Target this week. It is a testament to how uncomfortable my shoes were the last time I went, because I went directly to the aisle I needed and didn't go the long way to The Back Corner of All Things Good, aka the seasonal section.  I did, however, hit up Home Goods last week and pick up a few fall items. I decided to stick to "plaid, apple and leaves fall" for the rest of this month before breaking out the pumpkins and ghosts for October. So again, I'd like major points for not buying any pumpkins yet. I'm trying to rack up all the points I can now, because I know the next few months are going to be a hot mess of festivity. I think it's because I didn't actually go back to school this year, for the first time ever, that I've been able to resist going full fall during these last few weeks of 90+ degree weather.
In our dining room, I used some corks and a scarf my dear friend Renee knitted for me last winter to add some texture to this beautiful plaid tablecloth I found at Home Goods. I always buy smaller tablecloths and layer them with a table runner since a) our table is massive and b) I love seeing the beautiful wood. I want to marry this plaid, and there were at least three others I wanted to take home with me, but Tommy already thinks I'm crazy.
So anyway, once October hits, or we get our first day under 80, expect the crazy to be out in full force.  I've pinned so many fall ideas that I'm sort of paralyzed trying to decide where to begin, but I did sign up for this awesome Home for the Holidays class that looks AMAZING. I saw it on Edie's blog, and that woman has the most insane talent for blending eclectic and classy (maybe its because she's from Texas?) in crazy interesting ways. I can't wait to see what projects are presented, and either finally pick something to start or, more likely, short-circuit my brain with inspiration overload. The videos are accessible for a year, so maybe I'll just save some for next fall...you know, when I have a toddler and all that extra time and energy that comes along with that stage. 
Oh man, I just realized I haven't even thought about our Christmas cards yet. I gave up the Cricut competition last year and settled for something printed from Shutterfly, but I kiiiiinda want to jump back in the race this year.  Do you hear that, Cora and Marisa? I'm coming for you. Or not. Either way.
