My blooming chrysanthemums.♥♥♥♥

Yes,  autumn has finally reached the San Joaquin Valley and I’m so ready for it.

We’ve had over 50 days this summer of 100+ degree weather.

Time for summer’s departure!


Our grandsons took down all our fall decorations from the attic, so I quickly decorated, filling the house with fall colors.

My bay window is festive.


The table runner I started  a few weeks ago is done and was placed on the dining room table.


I even have my own pumpkin patch by the wood stove.



Hubby has also gotten ready for the winter, buying some pellets for our wood stove.

The older grandkids helped us stack them.  Love those kids!



I’m thinking we’re all set now, for a while anyway.

Now I’m craving pumpkin pie! ♥♥♥♥

 I just wanted to share some pictures and hope you have a peaceful day!

Welcome my friends

Yesterday our hearts were sad.  We lost a nephew and he was laid to rest.  I always saw him with a smile and he’ll be missed, but his spirit is with us always.

Today I thought I’d post a few pictures of a vignette, that I’m trying to get just right, but I can’t seem to get the right combination of fall items that I have for my little bay window.

This is hard, I’ll have to keep trying!

Transparent window clings are my favorite things to put on my windows.  The light comes right through them and the colors look so pretty.

Have a great weekend!

Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
