It is said the early bird catches the worm, and in the case of blogging, retail, and seasonal decorating, it proves to be so. I began working on this best fall decorating colors blog post several weeks ago in anticipation of the visual loveliness soon to be revealed.
Being a natural born multitasker, I decided to throw a bit of WordPress dashboard housekeeping into the mix and perform a self-migration from Linux hosting to cPanel.
What was I thinking?
By the Sunday night of the Labor Day weekend things went South. By Monday afternoon I had lost my site, my religion, and my patience.
My determination to DIY this particular project was to show myself I can do this.
Note to self: You can not.
After two weeks, Dave the Builder convinced me to enlist the services of the guides at GoDaddy.
That was Tuesday, September 3.
This morning, thirteen days later, Places In The Home was still down.
Patience and politeness goes a long way in the pursuit of a positive result. Alex, the super kind and knowledgeable GoDaddy guide, consulted a supervisor, and within one hour we’re back.
I want to thank each of you for your patience with this process. For those of you who subscribe to Places In The Home, the testing testing 1,2,3 emails delivered to your inbox should be all done.
Thanks again for your understanding and for not unfollowing me.

Patience also plays a pivotal role in the game of designing, building, remodeling, and decorating.
And waiting for fall to get here.
Fall or autumn.
What say you?
A fall vs. autumn FYI:
The term fall originated in English around the beginning of the 16th century.
Autumn gained its English prominence in the 18th century.

Originally short for fall of the leaf or fall of the year, fall is the preferred term in the United States to best describe the season between summer and winter.
The term autumn was originally derived from the Old French word for autumn, automne, in the 15th or 16th century.
Autumn found favor in British English, however, fall has become prevalent in British publications.

Warm tones pair well with refined neutral shades (a color powerhouse in and of itself).
Feathering the nest in color, pattern, and layers of texture associated with fall finery creates stunning statements.
