However, no matter what I do every year in September I can't help but notice signs of autumn approaching. I never can find that pause button that keeps the sun shining longer or the freeze button that keeps the leaves green and hanging onto their branches.
I look around and see...
the hosta that is very tired,
I love the cooler temperatures, the colors of fall happen to be my very favorite colors, and the mere thought of the holidays approaching fills me with a bunch of warm fuzzies. Take note, I did not say I love the shorter days....because I am not "there" yet and don't know if I will ever get "there"!! But I am choosing to focus on what I do love and not dwell on the not so favorite parts.
In order to help adjust my attitude I decided to warm up the home with some fall decorations. Isn't that always a help?
ones that can't rot.
Since I love little tin containers, I can't help but smile at this.
The summer sunflowers are taking a rest.
And I found this cute little pitcher on clearance. How could I resist adding yet another rooster into our house?
It also helps that the weather has been gorgeous on most days and has allowed me to open all the windows...which happens to be in my
top 10 list of all time favorite things to do
in my house
to make it all fresh and clean feeling!
