It's Fall, You All!!!

I can't believe it! We made it!! I actually can sleep with the windows open and the a/c OFF!!!! Yipeeeee!!! So how do I know it's Fall?? Here's my list:

~ There is a special golden color to the sun that makes the sky seem bluer and everything seem clearer.

~My 'coonie is shedding his summer coat and there are clumps of maine coon fur hanging off him and all over the floor. (coonies shed in clumps of hair)

~ There's a delicious smell in the air of cinnamon, spices, and earth.

~ The early mornings are cool and crisp and clear -- lovely!

~ I have energy to tweak and redecorate.

~I can go to Aunt Daisy'shttp://auntdaisys.com/ Harvest Celebration next week!!!!! If you live anywhere near Emmaus, PA -- don't miss this! Gee, I've been looking forward to this all summer long!

Speaking of tweaking, I did do some major stuff this past weekend. I was glued to the Ted Kennedy funeral all day Saturday, so while I was watching TV, I gt int a major blue paint fit. I also moved my sofa, which changes the living room around (more pics to follow after I vacuum up the hair clumps). So, here's what I did....

Remember my red paint chair (the one I said I would never paint? I lied.) Redid it to a blue, moved it from the bedroom to a corner of the living room.

I love how the old red paint peeps through the blue, don't you?

I'm not sure why I am losing my passion for black, but I even redid my make-do hutch. And -- I moved the book-keep to the top of it and converted it to a bowl holder. Here's the bottom shelves...

moved my sofa and made an sofa table.... with nice fresh yellow daisies in a jar.

SOOOOO, I have lots more to share, but I need to get to a meeting in the city, so I must be off. More tweaks soon!!

Enjoy early Autumn!


  1. Oh, my goodness I love that blue chair and the red peeking out...great job on that Terry! Your makedo cupboard is neat too and looks neat with the bowls on top!

  2. Thanks for the update on Daisy's next week. I haven't been there in quite awhile, but have been shopping there since they were at their old location many years ago. Great Primitives! As I just got done hanging my autumn wreath on the front door, I'm looking forward to it! Becky

  3. I am so jealous you get to Aunt Daisy's you lucky girl!!

    And I am loving these temps too and the autumn glow. Woohoo!

  4. Terry,
    Love your makeovers!! Everything looks great! Aunt Daisy's sure looks like a great place to go to. Have fun!! Our local shop doesn't do her fall gathering until the middle of Sept. and I'll be in Tenn. that weekend.
