Happy Fall Y'all!

Hello Friends!

Have you noticed? The past few days, during my commute home in the afternoon, I've noticed the leaves on the trees are starting to change color. I love this time of year. The landscape changes from day-to-day. Around the house, the color scheme has changed hour-to-hour.

It's so much fun decorating for fall. In the coming weeks, changing a few items will transform the fall decor into Halloween and then Thanksgiving. There's so much to do and too little time in the day.

Here are some of the changes I've made this week.

I went from a very muted calm mantle... a splash of fall splendor.

Have you met my maid?

She doesn't do windows...
It's hard to find good help these days.

I made my first attempt at a cloche for Marty's
Cloche Party this weekend.

A wreath (garland for Kath) adorns the front door.

My friend Lanila , from Fort Wayne,
made me this. Isn't it pretty?

A new centerpiece for the dining room table,

a planter for the kitchen table, and

sunflowers for the potbelly Stove.

Mumkins have been ordered and will arrive the first of the month. I'll let you know when the outside is ready for unveiling.
Have a fabulous autumn season! La

I am liking to the following parties:
Transformation Thursday at Shabby Chic Cottage,
Show & Tell at Blue Cricket Design,
Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch,
Centerpiece Wednesday at Style Sisters,
It's a Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life,
Falling Up at Cottage and Vine.
