Happy Fall 2020

Happy Fall Everyone!

I think we're going to have normal Fall weather  here in the Carolinas this year (crossing fingers).

The heat and humidity turned off a few weeks ago and now we're enjoying warm sunshine with cool breezes.

Cooler weather makes for gorgeous Fall colors. I'm hoping to see the trees at our mountain cottage turning  vibrant oranges, reds and yellows. This photo was taken a few months after we bought our cozy cottage in early Fall of 2013. 

Every year since then, I have been chasing this photo, but the colors have never rivaled the ones in this pic. One year kids were wearing short sleeves on Halloween. Another year we had very little rain. Heat and lack of rain aren't the ingredients needed for spectacular Fall colors.

The copious amounts of rain we've had in 2020 and the weather cooling off on time at the end of August, should produce fabulous Fall colors. 


Then, of course, we have to be at our mountain house when peak color hits. 

You can see more beautiful photos from that Fall HERE.


Some Fall porches have been my favorite. The one shown below was one of those, but as I recall, I was sweating as I was decorating it for Fall. You can read about it HERE

My favorite Fall porch at our previous house was this one filled with mums lining the steps. You can find more photos of this porch HERE.

The Screened Porch at the house we live in is the perfect place to spread a little Fall. This space is a great place to sit and relax or eat a dinner when the weather is nice. You can seen more of our Fall Screened Porch HERE

A simple Fall craft with supplies you might already have around the house is a good way to decorate without having to spend any money, especially if money is tight this year.  You can see that post HERE.

Setting a pretty Fall table is also a festive way to refresh the house for the Autumn season. Gather things you already have around the house, and if you have kids, let them decorate the table every day. You can find more pics of this tablescape HERE.

Last, but not least, if you have a fireplace mantel, break out your Fall decor and celebrate the season! You can see more of this mantel HERE.

I hope 2020 has beautiful Fall colors and weather in store for all of we definitely would appreciate it with all that is going on around the world and in our country right now. 

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. I love your porch. Pinned. The color brick on your house with a black front door is my favorite traditional house. thanks

    1. Thanks! The brick house with the black door was our previous house. I loved the whole house being brick. We lived there 16 years and it required no maintenance, except powerwashing the front steps once or twice.
