The Splendor of Fall

Hi Friends, Hope you all had a lovely weekend as we did. The weather is just getting more and more glorious here and I have to remind myself that the days will go fast and soon it will be too cold to go out and enjoy the beauty of the Creator. I try to pause now and then and have a cup of coffee on the front porch just to drink it all in. Sharing pics of my entry. It is pretty small, so I have quite a bit crammed in a tiny space, but enjoy it. This is a wreath I put together a couple of years ago. It did not sell at my annual Open House, so it became MINE. I love it hanging on our old window that looks into the family room.

I just love geraniums! I know.... a very ordinary flower, but to me a geranium just says "welcome" on the porch. These were especially beautiful this summer and somehow I managed to keep them going even through our long terrible hot spell in August! They will soon succumb as we have already had a few frosty mornings.

The view from my rocking chair on the porch and one of my favorites. In the next couple of weeks, the color will really start coming on the trees.
For most of our married life, we have not had the blessing of many trees, so it is soooooo wonderful to have a few to gaze upon!!

We worked more on the basement this weekend. We are nearing completion of a bedroom and a bathroom. It is soooooo much work and has to be fitted in around our other jobs, but we are making progress little by little. Hope to show you some pics soon. I am using an old buffet for a vanity cabinet and have decided to paint it white, DH gave me his blessing..... what a guy!! Now we have to decide on a countertop that will not break the bank.

Some of my very favorite old post cards and scripture cards. I change them out as the year goes along for the various holidays and such. Got a few new ones on a recent antiguing day.
I am so grateful for all the blessings God has given me and our family. Lately, I have been more and more mindful that I just need to be more grateful. I think the world could use more of this, don't you?
Singing His Praises,


  1. Hi Linda! Oh, your entryway looks so pretty and the wreath you've made is gorgeous! I know that remodeling is a lot of work and can't wait to see your basement!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Really like that wreath. Your entry is very pretty and warm. Sounds like you have been busy.
    Your geraniums are pretty. The extreme heat and dry this Summer was really hard on my pots of blooming plants this year.
    Have a great week.
