Fall Past and Present

Hello Friends!
I can’t tell you how happy I am to FINALLY have Fall weather!
One thing you can usually count on in the Carolinas is for the weather to turn blissfully cooler at the end of August.
Notice I said usually….

This year, it stayed warm and humid until well into October. I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel like breaking out

the cozy throws and Fall pillows when it’s still close to 90.
We had a couple of cooler days with low humidity and then the weather turned warm again for one last gasp.

This past week, Fall FINALLY arrived!

You just never know what kind of Fall you’re going to get here.
Several Falls ago, I took this photo of the trees at our mountain cottage just at the peak of their glorious color!

The photo below was taken at our last home- such beautiful, big trees!

One of my favorite tablescapes of all time was this one…

I just loved those mums and the pumpkin shaped gourds.

At our last house, my favorite front porch had lots of mums.

Now that the weather is finally cooler, I’ll be setting out the Fall pillows, wreath and throws.

The screened porch was also decked out for Fall last year…

The mantel this year was bedecked in Fall finery a month ago.

Had to share my new favorite sign. See my Instagram for the backstory.

And, of course, the foyer vignette has been decorated in white pumpkins.

So, for now, I’m happy that the weather has turned cool, but I’m sure in a couple of months, I’ll be longing for Spring!
