Here in Southern California, we are still having warm days, but there are changes in the air. The days are getting shorter. The mornings and evenings are cooling off nicely, and we can have our windows open again to enjoy some nice breezes. I look so forward to this time of year. When my Fall things are all put out in the house and yards, it is like being wrapped up in a warm blanket to me. Come on in.
I don't put too many things out for Halloween. I don't like the spooky stuff. So mostly it is just Fall things that will stay out until after Thanksgiving.
Walking into the living room.
Oh shoot, I should have shut that door to the laundry room so you couldn't see that I haven't finished my project in there. I still need to have the walls repaired before I can paint it, but the wallpaper is finally off!
A few years ago I pulled out the useless little table that was against this wall below. I found this buffet on Craig's List and it fits the space perfectly, and provides additional storage as well.
My fall quilts have come out. That one of the stacked pumpkins below is a wall hanging I did a few years ago. It is just resting up against a large floor pillow on the hearth.
The patio right off the family room is dressed for fall too.
Then, beyond the pool and backyard is another concrete pad where we spend a lot of our time. Come on, it's out here.
After I worked in the yard this morning, I sat in my chair underneath one of my favorite trees in the grove. It is an avocado tree, with a full canopy of leaves that hangs down around it on all sides. It is the perfect resting spot.
I am eager for the coming week to pass because my friends Holly and Tammy are coming to town on Saturday to attend Blog Sugar with my daughter Gennifer and I. We are so excited to have them here!
So, what has been going on in your world?
Since this is a fall post, I am back this morning to add these pictures of a fall throw I found at Walmart yesterday. They had them in all of the fall colors. I couldn't decide, they were all so pretty. They had a purple one with fall leaves that was gorgeous, and I may have to go back for it. They are only 7 dollars, and they will be gone in no time. So go get one quick. I may go back today for the purple one too. They are from their Better Homes & Gardens line, and lightweight, and so soft!! I washed mine right away to keep from fuzzing, and it held up nicely to the washer and dryer.
