October Note Card Party.....Cool Weather, Cozy Scenes

Thank you, Vee, for hosting the Note Card Party every month! My computer is giving me fits, so I'll type out the link to the delightful party, since the usual links haven't been working and I can't post the party button or the computer locks up.....

Visit Vee at http://ahavenforvee.blogspot.com for a delightful experience!

So let's get on with it!!!
 An encore presentation of the dining room mantel dressed for fall.


 The leaves have not turned much, and it's warm enough to soak up warmth on the sunporch!


 Sunflowers gifted by a friend.


A restored 18th century cottage (http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p150366) where Mister and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary.  And where there was a copy of One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp that I finally read.
With Mister coming around the side of the cottage.

Cozy, Comfy and delightful.
Perfect for this time of year!

Having a delightful day,
Carol

Late to the Party, We are Decked out for Fall

Dare I say it???!
I do.
Happy Fall, y'all!


This is what I have to deal with when decorating.  I usually do it in the afternoon, when the fellas are napping, though I didn't get away with it this time!
And here are my fall decorations.  All 3 of them.


The garland is the show stopper here.  It will stay on the mantel til January.  Further embellishments to be added as Thanksgiving transitions to the Christmas season.
The mantel was in place when we moved in.  I painted it and the trim white, and the faux fireplace opening a flat black.  Mister picked up the screen in his travels.


The li'l white pumpkin rests upon some old cookbooks in the kitchen.


And the spoon rest, well,  rests.


Look what I found at the Salvation Army shop yesterday!!!!
Mint. In. Box.
Instructions inside and all.
99 CENTS!  Terribly exciting!  It works perfectly.  It'll be out year round methinks.

So hoping this finds all of you in the midst of a great week.  All your fall decorating is beautiful!
