Happy Fall Yall!

Happy 4th Day of Fall! Bet ya never heard that one before! ;) Whew, its hard to believe its been a week since I last posted.

What a week it's been... it was homecoming week at the flower shop and we both have suffered with a virus. Thank goodness both are past us now. I hardly ever miss work for sickness - usually once every two or three years and I missed a day during the week that no one is allowed to take off!

Finally this week, we are both feeling much, much better and can finally take notice that fall arrived on Friday!

I changed my picture frame wreath to suit the season. When I dug out my fall decor a few weeks back, I found the wooden pumpkin welcome sign and decided it would look great on my picture frame door wreath.
 I cut off the cross and welcome sign and wove the wire on the pumpkin stem through the chicken wire on the frame. It took a  whole 2 minutes and I never took the wreath off the door! I like it much better...I wish we could decorate with pumpkins all year. I love the oranges, yellows, reds, and browns of fall.
With the fall season upon us, the days are getting noticeably shorter and our chores must start earlier to avoid being caught by dark and feeding animals with a flashlight.

Fall means county fairs are approaching in the coming weeks and its about time to dust off my Yam Pie Recipe in order to defend my Champion Pie Title at our fair! I won the pie contest last year and I need to defend my title this year. Can you say p-r-e-s-s-u-r-e? I'm sure my family and friends won't mind me making a few test pies for them to taste test!

I'm seeing all the fall antique/junk sales and blog post about Warrenton, Round Top and other big markets and its making me sad I'm not there. I MUST make plans for next year.

Fall means cooler temperatures and hopefully some much needed rain. We did get little over an inch of rain last week and our pasture has a little bit of a green glow across it. The animals are sure happy to see some grass growing again. I have had a few new blooms on my flowers and hope to share some pics sometime this week.

Fall means the new season of tv shows. I haven't been watching much television lately, but was ready for the premiere of Castle. I usually watch Dancing with the Stars, but haven't got excited about it this season. We are waiting to see how the new Tim Allen show is going to be. Farmall Man misses the days of Tool Time and he is ready to see Tim on TV again. We only get ABC, NBC, and Fox at our house as we don't have cable at home. The Junk Gypsies are getting a show on HGTV this fall, and I sure hope I can get them through iTunes on our iPad!  So what are your favorite fall shows?

After the summer we have had, I hope this fall is much happier.

So what is your favorite part about fall? Anything you are looking foward to doing this season?


  1. Love your wreath conversion for fall!
