Century BOB, Decorations, Jibberish

So I realized I'm not good at blogging because I don't do it everyday. I forget about it, or don't want to do it, but then when I have the time or want to write, I end up writing a lot! So I apologize for that, but oh well, right? I'll try to keep this short, and don't worry, it's mostly pictures :)

Anyway, first on tonight's blog is a little story...
The other day I was driving to work, looked over, and saw a very strange sight. It looked something like this:


I was so caught off guard that I was a little frightened! Then it was just hilarious. Ya..a man was driving his convertible...top down and all...down Wadsworth with a Century B.O.B. in the passenger seat. I really wished I had my camera, but didn't. So I decided to make a quick 5 minute fake picture in Photoshop of what I saw. By the way, I had no clue these things were called Century BOB's. I knew I had seen them at Sports Authority so I looked online but couldn't find them. I kept doing google searches and finally found the name!

Next on the list for tonight's blog: organizational inspiration...
As I was cleaning and getting ready to decorate, I came across the tin rectangle pails I had used for centerpieces at my wedding. I decided to use them as tea bag organizers. They don't fit perfectly, but they work pretty well:



Moving on to the next topic: Fall Decor...
When I got home and started looking for fall decorations, I realized that I pretty much only had Halloween and Thanksgiving stuff. So I have been getting creative! Which is fantastically fun...I'm so glad school isn't in the way to hinder it!

My first little project was just to do a little add-on change. I already had this mirror/candle holder hanging on the wall with the white candles. So at Hobby Lobby today I bought a $1 (!) roll of seasonal ribbon and some spray adhesive ($5) and added the cute little ribbon. I don't know if I want to do all 3 candles or not...what do you think?





Moving on to the mantle: I knew I had some Party Lite candle holders that are fall-ish, so I pulled those out...





I feel like they're kind of Bohemian-ish, but they're made of red and yellow beads, so the colors are perfect.

On my walk back from Hobby Lobby (yep, I can walk there, which makes me happy), I picked some cattails, wheat stalks, and picked up some sticks. I brought those home and tied a little piece of raffia around them that I already had (so all of this was free!)...





So here's what the whole mantle looks like:


I'm thinking about putting my little cattail bundle in a used olive oil bottle I have. I tried it out and it looks pretty cool. The bottle is drying right now. What do you think?...Leave them lying on the mantle or put them in a bottle (use your imagination for how that would look).

Then I got to sit and drink my blackberry sage tea while enjoying my small decor changes. I was happy. I am happy. I have a couple more decor in the process. One involves one of those tin pails I used for the tea, and pine cones; one involves leaves; one involves twine and Styrofoam balls. I hope everyone enjoys the beginning of Autumn as much as I am! Even though the leaves haven't changed colors yet, and the temperature is still in the upper 70s/low 80s, don't forget that fall comes and goes fast, so start enjoying it now!

Obviously the mention of the need of a political Viagra in the discussion doesn't suggest that Viagra UK is not an object to be discarded and as such it is clear that blue pill is not a harmful or destructive object and on the contrary, is a hugely popular medicine.
