Happy Fall Y'all

Happy First Day of Fall Y'all!

 It's been a while since I've been excited about decorating my gazebo, but last week, I was inspired to rearrange the junk and get a few new plants. 

My friend gave me a potted sunflower plant and I love it! Every year I intend to plant sunflowers, so I'm tickled to have some in my yard now. 
I fixed up an old wreath with a few fall favorites to hang on the door
And found a few potted mums when out shopping. 

A cool front came in at 2:25 this morning, that brought fall like temperatures. You may wonder how I know the exact time? Sound to sleep this morning, I woke to a loud boom. The Mr. shot up out of bed, speechless, when I ask "what was that?" I looked at my clock to see what time the airplane fell out of the sky. He thought it was an explosion and expected to see a ball of fire in the night sky or a nearby house on fire as he darted outside to check on the surroundings. Naw, it was thunder! The cold front had hit! Now, I could sleep through a tornado, but that loud thunder scared the beegeebees out of us. It was crazy weird, but funny now. Today was absolutely beautiful and really felt like fall. 

I'm ready for cooler weather, new fall clothing, boots and sweaters, maybe a few camping trips, county fairs, and the list goes on. I'm not excited about it getting dark earlier.   Y'all, please remind me I said all this in about two - three months, when I'm not so excited about being cold and ready for a pair of flip flops ;) 

Till then, happy autumn! 


  1. You always make everything look so unique and pretty. It's been a bit cool here too. I love. it.

  2. I haven't visited for awhile and I'm glad I did. Your tribute to Fall in your little paradise is beautiful!

  3. Your decor looks great! I'm ready for the cooler temps and lower humidity. And I will shed a tear or two when we have to turn the clocks back.

  4. Love the gazebo! I'm terrible with my yard...
    And I hate cold weather...almost as much as I do laundry!Hahaa


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
