Do you all change the color palette of your home for the seasons? Recently, I was tasked with making a style guide for my business…and I realized that both professionally and personally… I swap color palettes entirely when it comes to the change over to fall… smoky plums, mustards and forest greens with garnet red and steely blue…and of course, my forever love, rusty/pumpkin orange… My heart just can’t help it. They are as much a part of me as their summer/spring counterparts…farmhouse green, soft blush pink, worn red, cornflower blue and cream rule those sunshine-y months.
Once, when trying to describe my personal style preferences, I said to someone that I land somewhere between Dolly Parton and Stevie Nicks… Traditional farmhouse country charm meets witchy wondrous smoke and moonlight. In my heart, I am equal parts both…and they are each two my favorite muses.
And here we are at the time of Lammas… The traditional first day of harvest time… A time when one foot is firmly in summer, and the other has crossed over into the dream that is autumn to come. And I’m perfectly at home in my color-loving heart… swimming happily as the Mother Nature rejoices in both of my color palettes. The best of both worlds.
What a wonderful blessing it was to get to chat with my teacher and friend, Bonnie Christine.

My word for this year will be “abundance,” and I’ve decorated a little art print with peonies which symbolize healing, prosperity, and a little bit of bashfulness (which I need to try and overcome to be seen). Little sprigs of rosemary are for remembrance…especially of where I was this time last year when this journey in surface pattern design began. Lots of growing is in store for me this year. Cheers to 2019!
Not much to say….just enjoying the sights of the season and wishing I had a farm. 🙂
The color and the spectacle of fall is here! We just went to our first two festivals of the season today. And right on time for the season, the blistering heat that we felt just last week fell away to brisk air and chilly temps. Here’s a bit of fall color for you… with the promise of more to come. Happy Autumn to all!
We are setting out on the last adventure of a very very busy summer. My family and I are headed back to Prince Edward Island, Canada. My husband’s family is from the island…and it is one of the prettiest places on earth. It’s the land of red clay sand and beautiful forests….and the place that Anne of Green Gables called home. Here’s a peek at a spectacular sunset on the island for your evening enjoyment. <3 May you and yours being enjoying a few last lovely adventures together as this summer winds to a close. <3
Much love, Jackie
Here’s a little gem to lighter your heart on a Monday. Enjoy and sending you love, laughter, and comfort to get you through the week!
I want to communicate what inspires me and my design through pictures and photos….here’s one of my favorites. It reminds me of my Pop and his farm.
Hi there!! Starting at the beginning with my very first post! Welcome and enjoy!
