Fall on the Front Porch

Yesterday I dressed up my porch for Fall and I felt a little silly.

My neighbors must have thought I had gone crazy too.

You see,  Nate (the hurricane) pushed up some very humid air up from the Gulf and interrupted our warm, wonderful weather with cool nights that we had been enjoying for several weeks.
I mean, who in their right mind would put a throw blanket with a bunch of pillows in the middle of 80 degree weather with 80-90% humidity?
I was sweating as I set out everything out.

Ah, but I persisted.
And even though I felt silly fluffy pillows and setting the throw just so,  I continued to taking photos as cars drove past my house.
I didn't even turn around and wave as many in our neighborhood do... I just pretended I didn't hear or see them.

Oh, don't tell me you don't do the same thing when you're outside or at the grocery store when you didn't put your make up on. I can't be the only one.

Anyway, it's going to get cool here sooner or later and my porch will be ready for the cool evenings of Fall.

Fall Tablescape In The Breakfast Room

The weather is still warm here and I'm loving it. 
Reminds me of Fall in Southern California.
Short sleeves for warm days and a light jacket for the cool nights.
The weather is just right...

Sweet Memories And Fall In The Family Room

Hello Friends!

Is the weather still hot where you are?

The summer heat is still hanging around here, but the humidity is lower and nights are cooler - which makes for nice evenings out on the screened porch. The sounds of cicadas have given way to chirping crickets and that tells us that things are about to change and cooler temps are on the way. 
It will soon be time to break out soft cable knit sweaters and colorful scarves and warm cozy blankets out of big woven baskets.
Which brings me to decorating for Fall in the Family Room.
