Welcoming Fall

Hi friends,

It's starting to feel a bit like fall around here with the kiddos going back to school and the leaves starting to change. I am hopeful for a warm fall that makes up for the sucky summer weather that we had.

To kick things off, we've added fall mums to the the front porch. I love the cheery look they give our place.

In other news, I've been loving all the funny comparisons to going back to school in the 70's / 80's and current times. This blog post gives a hilarious run down of the differences. I started school in the 80's but so much of this holds true! Baloney sandwiches - check, corduroy pants - check, fuzzy yarn for hair bows - check and check!

Here's a few amusing throwback items that I dug up online:
Anybody have a lunch box like this?

Recognize any of these?

Thanks for stopping by!

Bespoke Bedding

Hi friends,

Hope you are enjoying this glorious long weekend. We are taking it easy here at Casa Marshall. But thoughts of fall and cocooning have started to dance through my mind. On that note, I've rounded up some custom bedding options on Etsy. I really think this may be the answer for us - I have been struggling to find a new duvet for our master bedroom and Etsy has so many cozy options.

Thanks for stopping by!
