Tiny Touches of Fall

I certainly haven't been on top of decorating for fall this year
Today, after the grands went home
I pulled out a few pieces for the front door area

Mostly, I just added some color
And a few small pieces

I had gotten the wreath up a couple weeks ago
I doubt I will be able to add anything else here
I  wish I had the magic touch
To make things beautiful
But I'll take what I can get this year

In the dining room
I pulled out my crazy crooked dough bowl
And added a few real white boos
As well as a few small corn cobs
Then filled the rest of the bowl with some faux pieces

You know
It's really okay by me
To just add a bit of color
A bit of the season
And be happy with that

I'm learning in this new life
Less stressing
Makes this girl Happy 

Have a Super Happy Joy Filled Weekend!!

Finally...A Touch of Fall

Life has been busy around CC's Place
So, I have not had time to put up any fall decor

Until tonight

Nothing else is done outside
But I do have my wreath up 

One small ceramic pumpkin in my bedroom

I took an old black vase and sprayed it white
Added a bit of burlap as well as a burlap sunflower

It seems to be the best I can do of late

The holiday's have Always been the happiest time of year
And even though I anticipate happiness to flood my soul
There is still something missing without Mark
I keep asking God why he had to pass on Christmas Eve ~ sigh

Maybe this weekend I'll get motivated 
And fluff my house all up for the Fall
Cheer me on :)
Blessings To All!!

LR Wall Re-Do

Hi Friends,

It's been a work in progress for several months
But it is finally finished (pretty much)

In 2003 when my husband first became ill
And I knew he would be spending more time in the LR so,
We decorated the living room with all of his favorite things
He and I were married in Bodie, CA 
His family settled Bodie in the 1800's 
They owned the Gold Mine and many of the businesses there
Mark always wanted to get married there even though it is now a State Park

The pen and inks on this wall were drawn by my brother David
He is a fabulous artist, I will always treasure these pictures
We also had many hunting, fishing and car racing items in the room

Mark has been gone to his new heavenly life for nearly 4 years now
So, I decided it was time for a face lift

Several months ago I found this sign in a little boutique that I love to frequent
I purchased it immediately and knew it was the start of a wall re-do

It took several months to find the other pieces to complete the wall
But I found just what I needed over the past two weeks
While visiting some of my favorite shops AND
Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market

I came home from work tonight
And quickly put together this flower arrangement
Not bad for 10 minutes :)
 And it only cost $11

 While at JITT I found those two fence posts which worked perfectly
above the sign with the flower arrangement in the middle

Here's the whole wall
If you remember my post about the new shop I found
I showed this photo below
And mentioned that I purchased two items shown

YEP, That would be the shutters right off the wall

They are so unique
Usually the shutter part would be horizontal
But if you notice, these are vertical and add more character

Well, there you have it
My LR wall re-do
I am pleased with the result
I have a few more things to do before I show the sofa it is above
What do you think?

Have a Happy Rest of your Week
Blessings to ALL
