Here in the northern hemisphere the last day of summer is September 21st, which is tomorrow. I won't lie to you...I'm not a big fan of summer. Oh, I like it, but fall is my favorite. I love the colors, the cool temperatures, wearing just a sweater, apples, hot cider...you get the picture. Well, last weekend fall came early in our house.
Out with the sea shelled mirror, the antique fishing basket and the green plant. To make that mirror, I just took an old mirror, a boat load of shells and a lot of hot glue. See that basket that the plant is in...well, I want a sea grassy look, but couldn't find one, so that's an old lamp shade I turned upside down.
and now autumn has arrived!
I bought this little stitchery at a flea market for $3.00. Thought it was cute for this time of year.
Here's a little hutch that I change out for the seasons. Crisp white for summer.
To burnt oranges for fall. Still not sure about this look. I might try the plates I usually put in there. I buy plates for different seasons on sale. My husband bought me this service for 8 of this burnt orange, plus platters and a 3 pieces canister set all for less than $10.00. It was on sale at JC Penney for 90% off. He saw it all on his own and knew he had to get it. He said "it looked like me". I love him to pieces...
Here is another sign that fall and winter are coming. This little chipmunk was cuter in person.
Look at her in this pipe with a mouth full of acorns. Looks like me this weekend with all the junk I ate. (long story which I already told to the I Spy swappers in a letter, but the short story is... hubby and kids not home, I didn't cook, ate cookies, chips and dip and mac and cheese all day Saturday) Not pretty.
I visited my sister-in-law today to see her 2 new kittens. I made her a Chocolate Chip Apple Cake. I'll post the recipe in a different post tonight. I also have 2 quick smore recipes too. Ok, Kelly (sisterhood of the junk food) if you are reading this, I just baked the goodies...I was very good, I just had one piece of cake when I was visiting her. I couldn't let her eat alone...wink, wink!
Enjoy the last days of summer,
