~ The Fall Patio Table ~

Decorating the outside for fall is just as fun as doing the inside. Putting a vignette together for the table outside the shop is always a challenge due to the high winds we have occasionally along with Mother Nature and her changing mood swings.
 Last year I used a lantern for the centerpiece, this year

~ The Baker's Rack Goes Fall ~

It's another glorious fall day in our neck of the woods, far too pretty to be inside. Unfortunately household duties and paperwork are keeping me bound to the desk. Are you out enjoying the beautiful day doing something fun? I would love to hear what you've been up to.
I purchased the baker's rack quite a while back,

Happy Fall Everyone!

It's the first day of fall according to the Equinox. This is the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator- that imaginary line in the sky above the Earth's equator- you know the one that runs from the north to the south.  For many of us it's another excuse to put our heavy fall decorating shoes and get busy, put out that fall decor and enjoy cool crisp breezes, the feel and sound of crunching leaves under our feet as we take long afternoon walks, the scent of a fall candle burning and curling up with a good book. 
Last week my girlfriend surprised me with an early Christmas gift.

Hi there, hard to believe it's already Thursday, this week has flown by. With the beautiful weather we've had the last week or so I find it harder and harder to stay inside. I've started the fall prep work of getting the yard ready for winter, have a very long way to go. Taking lots of breaks and enjoying Mother Nature and all her glory is a lot more fun. These are a few of the shots of the Sedum in the planter box outside the shop area. Thankfully the hot summer temperatures didn't take away from it's fall beauty we enjoy each year.

These pictures were taken a week ago, the soft green and pink colors were so pretty.
The plants were full of bees and butterflies, are they getting ready for winter?
I took these pictures yesterday, notice the deep pink color? It is incredible.
I would love to bottle the bright color up to store for the long winter months ahead, instead I'll be able to enjoy the pictures and the memory of sitting on the patio on a beautiful fall day.

~ The Added Feel of Country ~

Happy Saturday everyone, we're having another beautiful Fall morning our way. A perfect morning for sitting on the patio enjoying a hot cup of coffee and watching the birds frolic back and forth. I hope you've been able to get out and enjoy the beauty.
Last week while I was gathering things to add to the fall decor I randomly placed them on the kitchen table. I soon discovered

Crisp temperatures in the morning,
the smell of fresh cut grass, puts
me in the mood for finishing
up the fall decorating.

~ The Dining Room Hutch

It's a glorious Fall day in our
part of the country. I hope
you're enjoying the same
where you are. 
Last week I decided it was
time to do a bit of tweaking to the
dining room hutch. You know my 
tweaking means moving things
around from here to there. 
Not that there was anything wrong
with the way it was, I was just

~ And So It Begins ~

Hi everyone, I hope you're enjoying the last official weekend of Summer. It's a gorgeous weekend here, I should be outside working, I "might" throw that in later if I get a few more things done inside, I started trimming bushes the other day before all the beautiful rain, that project needs to be finished. There's always a list of "things to do" around here, do you keep lists? 
I made a quick trip to the grocery store this a.m.
