And rain...my long lost friend. Welcome back, dear friend!
So today, I invite you in to my cozy home. My haven. My cozy respite in a busy world!
I painted my front door last month and think it looks a lot more inviting. I figure the green goes with everything, and every season...just not the 4th of July! All the pumpkins, save one, are from my garden. I get a little carried away at Costco when the mums come out! After they're done, I plant them in the yard and enjoy them year after year!
My pots have done really well this year, so I'm keeping them out!
My buffet in the entry. Got the copper pumpkins at Bellewood Acres.
Love the old typewriter...thinking I need a tall, skinny lamp in the corner!
My sofa table. I got the bowl of ornaments at Grandiflora last year and the big acorns at TJ Maxx last week. I LOVE those!!!!
Nice to have a little sparkle!
A little side table...
And a picnic basket waiting for a picnic!
The fireplace didn't change much. I love the big baking pans, jugs and suitcases, so I just added a little fall to what was already there.
I made this little family years ago, and they still put a smile on my face! I got the mercury glass pumpkins at Kohls this year.
Little orange pumpkin from Folktales.
My little bench with an old truck of my hubby's, and a scarecrow that I made years ago.
I really don't do much Halloween, but I still have a fondness for this cute, little witch! Also, the sweater pumpkin I won from Homeward Found. I adore this pumpkin!! (Thanks Deb!)
On my birthday last month, my friend Lynda took me on a lunch,shopping date and I found this adorable, orange cracker tin. Perfect color and rustic-ness! Filled with autumnal books.
The buffet in the kitchen...
My dough bowl from the Farm Chicks show...
Filled with the bounty of the garden and a little vine.
The fun, little shelf near the pantry with my favorite chalkboard...Soup of the Day!
And the hutch...still need to put lights in there somehow!
Did a little on the back porch, because I had these delectable pumpkins and squash from the garden!
I had fun growing the unusual pumpkins this year! My jacks (all three) are still dark green, with little chance of turning orange. I'll be buying those I guess!!
And another beautiful mum....those oranges and yellows make me smile!
Nature is at it's very best right now and I'm enjoying every minute of it! Baking, pumpkin farms, shorter days and cooler nights. And the rain...how I've missed it! Welcome back my friend!
