Well, it's not officially fall yet but you would never know it by the temperatures we have been having in these parts! It has been chilly!!!! The slow cooker has been running and homemade bread is back in the oven baking. On days like these I like to sit back and listen to a bit of this...
And when I'm not listening to a bit of that I like to start adding touches of the season to cozy up our little home. I had seen some Halloween villages in some magazines and thought it would be cute if I made my own for above the coat hooks. Just black construction paper and tape.
I have a thing for plaid! After I sewed this pillow my son helped me stuff it and he is so very proud of it!
My fondness for vintage bird prints comes from my grandma. I was able to track some down HERE for a reasonable price and then just framed them up for the mantle.
And the backyard construction is making progress! Have a look out the kitchen window.....
Life isn't always easy. I read a quote once that said that bloggers blow sunshine at one another and I had to chuckle a bit. I guess we do do that but then I really started to think about it and came to my own conclusion. I think we collectively like to find the beauty in life even when the days are dark. A good trait among us if I do say so myself!
As September sets in I can feel the change in my garden. Plants are dying back, seed pods are forming and my annuals are carrying the color in most places. Little signs that the new season is upon us.
I miss the newness of my garden but if I've learned one thing in life it's to embrace where you're at. Change is bound to come. To have bits of beauty in your life to lift the soul along the way is a pretty awesome thing. So with that, I leave you with a song about change....
Make it a great one!
