~Autumn has Arrived~

I can hardly believe it's the last day of September already, yet Autumn has certainly arrived here this last week with cooler temps and rain.
Leaves are starting to turn color and I've gotten a few pumpkins to decorate with.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.
I generally tend to like the softer colors of pumpkins, but this Cinderella pumpkin really caught my eye.
The change in weather has finally gotten me in the mood for Fall decorating inside and out and will be sharing with you throughout the month of October.

Have a nice week!

~Cheery Sunflowers~

The sun is back today after some much needed rain showers.  It is supposed to stay dry over the weekend so I'll be outside starting the cutting back process of my garden. 

Many of my sunflowers stalks were falling over from the heavy rain, so I tried to salvage as many blooms as I could to bring inside.  Enjoy!  xoxo K. 

 I like the pop of color they bring to this area of my dining room.  

I'm finally getting in the mood for Fall and have been scouring my "Fall Inspiration" Pinterest board lately to get ideas for what I want to do this year.

I had a great day yesterday with my Mom gathering some pumpkins, mums and pansies for the pots on my porch and patio.   It's always a fun time of year to visit garden centers.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I do believe that the last of our hot weather is over for the year with cooler temps the next couple days and then rain expected in the middle of the week. I'm glad I finished cutting back all my hydrangeas blooms to bring inside to dry before the rains come.

I placed some in a French zinc pitcher and decided that's all that was needed as a centerpiece on my round table. Sometimes simple is best, don't you think?  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I hung these shutters on either side of the windows in the window seat shortly after we moved in and still love them 11 years later.  The chandelier was added a few years ago and finishes this area nicely.

I love how these ones have faded perfectly into a lovely greenish color.

I will certainly miss looking out these windows to see the sun shining over my flowers, but do look forward to enjoying dried hydrangeas in my home during the Winter months.
I also added a few to this market bag I purchased from Maria at Dreamy Whites last year.  So many ways to display hydrangeas throughout your home.

Enjoy your week!

~Savoring Summer~

I know many of you are decorating your homes for Fall and some are tired of the heat, but we've had such beautiful warm sunny days here that it is hard for me to give up Summer just yet.

Nothing better than a tall glass of lemonade to quench your thirst on a hot day.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I found this wonderful old box at a garage sale I attended this Summer and love everything about it.  The lettering and the worn wood are perfect.  It can be used for it's original purpose of storage along with being an awesome coffee table or side table anywhere in your home, porch or patio area.  It's one of those pieces that I bought to sell, but it might have to reside in my home for just a little bit, don't you think?

These little daisies are the wild ones that grow on our property and after the first round of their blooms are cut back some will produce a few more this time of year. They fit nicely in an old French bottle.

Have a wonderful week!

~Limelight Hydrangeas~

Good morning!  Summer is hanging on here with a beautiful sunny morning and temps in the 80's this week.  This time of year I hang onto these warm days because I know the colder weather and rain isn't far off.

I have three limelight hydrangea bushes and they were all loaded with blooms this year, but the heat was kind of hard on them.  I had to cut them all back, so decided to enjoy some of the  blooms inside for a while.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

One area I put them is in some crockware jugs on my primitive cupboard in the breakfast area.

My French breadboards are a nice backdrop for them.

Enjoy your week...♥
