Happy Hostess: Outdoor Living


I think I felt a tinge of a chill in the air today! Ok, ok . . . maybe I didn’t! But it is September, and I’m preparing for our “fall” season, and nothing is better than outdoor living and entertaining during our Arizona fall.

With a blank slate and some staple furniture pieces in neutral white and black, it is time to accessorize for the season.

I am having the most difficult time deciding between the Land of Nod striped teepee, and although the all black and white scheme is taunting me I am absolutely head over heels in love with the teepees that our very own AZ gals at Dolly & Frances are creating. (Spppp. . . They’ll be at Junk In the Trunk Vintage Market! Sept. 20th, Save the Date!)

So, what is a girl to do?
