Willing Fall to Get Here...

Hello Sweet Friends

I pray you have enjoyed your first weekend of Fall
The weather has been a bit cooler here

The summer heat starts so early here in Phoenix
With 100 degree temps starting in late April/early May
Lasting well into September and October some years

I don't wish my life away
For we are all aware how quickly time passes
Yet, this year the Heat of Summer
Has really taken it's toll on me

I am willing Fall to get here
And fortunately the weather has cooled a bit
At least it has been under 100 this past weekend
And is forecast to stay in the 90's throughout the week ahead

With that I added a small amount of fall décor
To the house this weekend

Because I am putting the red away for awhile
And adding some blue
Finding some natural toned items with touches of blue
Has been fun 

The wooden pumpkin sign
Fit perfectly with my regular décor

A tablecloth with my crooked wooden bread bowl
Filled with white and natural pumpkins
Is a simple table centerpiece

The only new item is this cute Mary Engelbreit
Autumn book I recently found at an antique store

Most of the weekend was spend with this crew
My oldest son's birth sister came to town to see him
We love her as if we have always known her
She fits into our silly family so perfectly of all
Her name is Cindy
Love All my Kiddos!!!

Happy Fall Y'All

  1. Love your soft colors for fall. I am trying to get into the fall groove but we are still in summer here in Illinois too. My summer flowers are still hanging on. So I will honor them for awhile longer and wait on the fall decor. The family pic is precious. Have a great week.

  2. What a great family photo!

    Your muted fall colors are oh so lovely.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady
