Happy First Day Of Fall Everyone !



It came upon us fast , not long ago we were sweltering , now we are feeling the chill in the air and the freshness that comes with it !  The smell of fire places and bond fires , the sights of orange, yellow and reds begin to show as the trees slowly change their leaves and they drop to the ground ,  as country front porches get all dressed up with pumpkins , corn stocks , hay bales , gourds  and  different scarecrows  !  As the inside of  our homes  get a new fresh look for fall , with baskets , candles  and the smell of your favourite pie baking in the oven ! Going for walks on a chilly eve as the sun sets after a hearty supper  to come in  to a hot cup of tea and snuggle under a blanket to read a good book or watch a movie  ,  to  spending time reading and commenting on blogs and  oohing and aweing over their lovely  fall posts and photos . This is some of what fall is to me !

   I spent the day sadly saying good bye to some summer flowers  as they are done for the season and    did some indoor and out door fall decorating yesterday as the weather was soo nice !



                                                                        Day to night !




              This oil lamp was my mum’s . I remember it as I was growing up on our hobby farm . It is very special to me !


                                          Our fall front porch ,  and Miggy to !

                                        Until next time , hope you all have great day !

Enjoy your weekend!!

Very Autumnal feeling in your house, and very beautiful displays.

I see your geraniums are still hanging in there,that's good.

I love the smell of pumpkin pies baking, life is good.

I love your front porch. I wish it felt more like Fall her in SoCal. We are still in the 90's here and will be for a few more weeks.

Elaine, you have certainly set the mood got fall with your lovely porch and home decorations. While I don't redecorate for the season, it does mean getting out candles to burn and covers for cooler nights.and, of course wrapping in a blanket and enjoying hot tad is very nice.
