Morning sunlight

Good morning friends!! Hope you all enjoyed a fantastic Fall weekend as we did! We had an overnighter with our granddaughters and enjoyed them so much, but alas, I did not get any pictures, we just spent time together enjoying the great weather. Watched old episodes of "Get Smart" with them......too funny. I can remember when we watched this show in the 70s. It's corny, but clean if you know what I mean. We had a wiener roast Saturday evening complete with S'mores. Just simple fun time together. Then church on Sunday with everyone. Got to hear our son sing at church which is such a blessing to a mother.

I am loving the early morning sunlight coming in all the windows and decided to take a few shots. Pictures never convey the beauty of sunshine do they? We have a new kitchen table and chairs that we are really enjoying these days. I was about ready to paint my oak pressback chairs after I had already painted the bottom of our table, but was really wanting a counter height table with stools that were actually comfortable enough that you could linger in them a while if you wanted to. This set is perfect and there is even a place to put your feet so they don't go to sleep! It is square, but the little sides flip up and form a more than 60" inch circle, enough to seat 8 people! It was just what I wanted in every way. We will use the other set in the basement when we get it all finished.

A few Fall decorations, I did not go all out this year, kept it kind of simple, but I like it.

I just love how the mantel looks in the morning. I just added faux pepper berries and orange calla lillies to my usual greenery and added a wicker tray and a brown willow plate.

Hope you are all looking forward to an incredible week. Enjoy your Monday, friends.
