Falling...

Hello again, yes, I'm still here and did not fall off the face of the earth, as many of you wondered!!!  It's been a trying 3 months for me, but am now starting to get myself back together........and it's FALL !!!  Praise God!!

You know I am not a fan of summer heat and am thankful for cool days and crisp evenings.  I was finally inspired to do some decorating......I know you've seen the same things here for a long time, but I keep re using what I have and being frugal!!  Here's some snaps of what has been done so far....


The dining room cabinet got refreshed.....and boy, I see it needs some refinishing!!  I love the Fall colors with my blues......

Little cherry hutch is the same with the added florals for the season.....


 
Even the hallway got some Fall on.....


and the kitchen window ledge welcomes Fall too........notice the beer glass, that's my home town here in NY.....my sister managed to get a glass for each of us......love it!!!!


The pine dresser is much the same except for the new runner I sewed from linen toweling bought by the yard.

And finally the dining room........you recognize the buffet??  It's the same and I love it!!

 
I just found that little stitchery piece I made while pregnant with my son.........34 years ago......wow!!!




That's it for now on the home decor!!  Am getting some table settings ready, and you'll see them soon.

My new shop on etsy has opened and that kept me very busy for awhile......come visit........www.feedyoursouljewelry.etsy.com.     All items are made by me and have beautiful stones that I have gathered all over.....the colors are amazing!!!

My website continues to grow, I've made a few changes and now have opened the Christmas Shop......it's not too early to shop!!!

Your fall touches look so pretty, Cleo! I love blue with the Fall colors, too. It really looks great!

How sweet to have found your stichery from 34 years ago. What a fun treasure!

Enjoy the cooler temps and good luck in your new shop!

Hi Cleo, I am trying to catch up with my friends. Doing a little reading before I call it a day. I love your fall colors, but it is my favorite time of the year. We use to always take drives to see the leaves turning. Good luck with your shops. Your jewelry is pretty. Take care. Hugs and prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
