Autumn Leaves…

Yes I know….it’s still August….but I so want Autumn leaves rustling under my feet and the aroma of hickory burning in the fireplace, a colorful autumn wreath hanging on the front door, a pot of Beef Stew simmering on the stove with smashed potatoes and applesauce sitting patiently on the sideboard and Pumpkin pie lathered in freshly made whip cream with a hint of vanilla and Brandy…..Oh, I just realized it’s 83 degrees outside and I am headed down to the lake to cool off….well, its only a matter of time so we might as well start gearing up for Autumn even though summer is in full swing here on the mountain!  The Divine Ms. B stopped by this morning and looked at me as if I were, well, pushing the calendar a bit too hard! As I opened the front door she just pointed and I said “Yup, a Fall Wreath is hanging on its hook!” She shook her head and sighed…..

…….So, where do you start your decorating?

………….For me,  the Front porch is always my starting point – let’s get “Creatively Motivated!”

I so love this whimsical trio of stands! This would be a great project for the kids to get started on….

And at the end of the day, I think I’ll take a bowl of my stew, a piece of that delicious pumpkin pie, a cup of hot  Maple Tea and sit at the table…  waiting for Autumn to slowly come up the mountain…

Happy “Pre-Fall!”

  1. Beautiful❤️fall is my favorite. Love love fall.

  2. I’m suddenly feeling ready for fall! 🙂 So pretty!

  3. I’m in Florida where we don’t get fall, and I’ve already started to decorate, lol. I have a faux fireplace with my mercury glass pumpkins and lanterns with fall flowers all over the mantel :D. If i keep the air conditioning cool enough and pull the curtains, I can pretend I’m in New England in autumn. Aaaah, a girl can dream.
