Salutations! Well according to my calender it’s officially fall, but can you believe nobody told the weather guy here on the East Coast. It misty rained, rained, and almost rained the entire weekend, and they’re forecasting rain all this week too. It’s thick and muggy out there, humid enough to need AC. And you all know how I feel about that. What happened to the sun filled crispy crunchy autumn I was dreaming of? I hate to moan and groan about the weather, but I guess that’s exactly what I’m doing.
So I brought in a couple of subtle autumn decorations to get me through this soggy wet week.
I don’t tend to do a lot of gussying up for autumn. I’m usually too busy enjoying myself in the sun filled great outdoors. Fall planting is my favorite – when it feels like fall that is. I wanted to do just a little something inside. Roses in a soft peach shade and a single ghost pumpkin are just enough to let this shabby little cottage know fall is indeed approaching. It will come.I promised the kiddos a bunch of pumpkins (for the front stoop) this year and a Christmas tree that reaches the sky. I’m one hundred percent sure the little stinkers will be holding me to that. Last year I went with a tiny Christmas tree and you would have thought I was the Grinch that stole Christmas. I thought it was pretty, but not worth an entire season of complaining. Lots of pumpkins and a big ole tree it is. I also moved the chalk board to the front entry for quick notes and lists. It makes it easy to check as we’re heading out the door. I might try it in place of the mirror.
Well, I’m off to watch a field hockey game… in the rain. Come to think of it, the one I went to last Thursday was rainy too. Farmer Brown loves this weather! He sits by the window and watches his new grass grow. I guess I could blame him. Grin.
Thanks for popping over today!!
