Today, I want to slow down, take a deep breath, and just reminisce on everything that has happened in the last month. When I think of the best things about the month of August, my mind goes in 100 different directions!
August was an absolute whirlwind for Deb and I! Seriously, I don’t know where the month went. In August, we went full Fall mode. We added all the pumpkins and all the cozy sweaters, but we were also working so hard to knock out the remainder of our outdoor projects before the colder months get here!
If you were along with us for the ride, I hope you enjoy reflecting back on everything we have accomplished in a month’s time!
We FINALLY finished our garden and its grand entrance! This project had us at wits-end for a while, but it’s finally done. It was not so lovingly called The Project that Never Ends. These posts and the pergola top were a struggle, beginning to end, but it turned out so much better than we could have imagined, especially once we added the old lantern light that we picked up at a garage sale. Read about the conclusion of this project here.
We finally have a firepit again! Last night, the moon and stars were shining so bright, the air was cool and crisp, and it was the perfect night for a campfire. So, guess what we did? We sat around the fire with family, a few drinks, yummy snacks, and cozy blankets… around our new fire-pit area! It was absolutely perfect, and we already love having this area completed. Read all about this project here.
I went hard on the Fall decor this year. I just love decorating for this season; The colors are so warm and inviting. I seriously bought so many pumpkins! One of the projects that I enjoyed the most was decorating this fireplace mantel. It was my first time decorating this mantel for Fall, and I did something totally different than what I have done with other mantels in the past. Not having a tv over this mantel, like the others, meant I had to find a large decor item to define and add height to the mantel. I love how this turned out. See how I brought this area to life here. You can also see all the artificial pumpkins I used, here.
These are the items that all of you loved from our LTK page in August. We posted some really great items, and I love to see what things you all are drawn to most. Did you pick up any of these top items?
You can get the full scoop on these amazing sweatshirts here. They are my personal favorites also!
Check out all of our best-sellers from the month of August here. Most of these are items that I picked up myself. I found so many new favorites this month.
This was our top-selling item on Amazon, and it’s another one of my new favorites that I will be using for years to come.
Our top Tik Tok video for the month was of us on the hunt for goodies at the 127 Garage Sales! It had over 68-thousand views!!
Our second-best Tik Tok video was this five-second snippet of the stained-glass window over our stairs with over 44-thousand views. This is an oldie, but if you would like to see how we hang our stained-glass windows you can check it out here.
I hope you joined us all along the way this month, because despite all the hard work, we had so much fun and we got some really big things done!! I hope we can pull this success into the month of September and bring you more fun and inspiration.
