Fall Past

Hello everyone...
I decided to share some photos of Fall past...
Last year...I bought a ton of Mums, rust, burgundy, etc...and then planted them afterwards.
They come back very well every year, and just need a summer trim so they are full and bushy and not long stemmed for fall. ( I learned the hard way!)
 Inside I went for a warmer look. I usually go with more whites and creams...but I needed ORANGE!
 My inner woman would wear orange a lot...I love that color...the warmth...after all pumpkins are my favorite thing in the world...and yes they are mostly orange!
 When I sew and make quilts...yes they tend to have orange in them...

 And I may have spray painted some metal trays from the thrift store...orange...yep I may have...

I also put together this cubby shelf thing from Target...to hold my music by my piano. But I decided to line the back of it with script written fabric. Love how it turned out.



 While I had the spray paint out, I spray painted a few muffin tins....you know how you look around your kitchen and house...for things to spray paint?  Yep...I then added candles...and then added the pot pourri...it doesn't work to add the pot pourri first....I'm just sayin'.....

 More orange in the quilt...I would be embarrassed to show you all my quilts...with orange in them.


 Awww...little baby chicks are always arriving at the Post Office for us to go pick up...
Did I mention we live on a Chicken Farm? With hundreds of these little guys...and
eggs? Oh the eggs...
I should write a cookbook...with eggs as the main ingredient!
Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings,
Debbie

It is never too much orange for this girl! My favorite color, my favorite season!

I saw your autumn decor on Pinterest and wanted to come over for a visit. But the Pinterest link leads to another site. I then put your blog name in my browser. New follower! I love pumpkins, too, and I don't feel like I am fully decorated for fall unless there is lots of orange, rusts, etc. xo

At first those chicks looked like little, furry kittens!

I just love seeing all the cozy pics of your home. Thanks for posting! ♥
