I have been determined to bring fall inside the house even though it is about 85 degrees outside. I do not mean to complain, but it would just be great if it were a little cooler outside.
My dining room table was bland and needed some decorating.
So I purchased a few decor items like some flowers, a vase a runner and I brought out my dollar store chargers.
As I was working on this, I had a little health issue last week. My eye was giving me problems and it turned out to be a peripheral detachment of my retina. Luckily, it was caught early so I had to have a laser procedure done. My eye is recovering, but my vision is taking a while to recover. This has been making me a bit antsy to say the least.
One of the things I love to do is crafting. I find it so therapeutic and since I had not finished my table, I decided to decorate a little chalkboard sign to welcome fall, when it finally gets here. In fact, maybe it will come faster with a sign. So I just started writing and making this fall chalkboard art.
I think I paid a dollar for this sign and I had the chalkboard markers. I just hand-lettered the words and realized just how much I like hand-lettering. Note to self - need to do more of this in the future because I find it really relaxing and gratifying.
Here is the sign close up.
So now my table looks like this:
So much better and now it is looking like fall here, on the inside of the house that is!

Thank you Ashley!
The chalkboard is so awesome! It makes everything look so fancy and fresh. I feel like our dining room is do drab that it would lighten it up.
Thanks Tamara! It really did brighten things up!
Raquel, what a gorgeous set up for autumn! You're freehand chalkboard script is AMAZING. What a great talent. I made my first chalkboard sign for my daughter's birthday party, and I absolutely had to use a template. I'm so sorry to hear about your eye. Thankfully you caught it early. I hope your recovery is going smoothly 🙂
Thank you Aida for your kind words! It is healing slowly but I am grateful for the specialist catching it. Thanks so much for stopping by!
