It was so cool when I opened the front door this morning! That is truly the first sign of fall in our area. It may get up to 90 degrees today~but at least we started out with a little bit of cool air! In the summer, it is sometimes up in the 80s by 7 o'clock.
Above is of one of my very favorite Charles Wysocki pictures. It goes over my Hoosier cabinet every fall and stays until time to decorate for Christmas. I would, of course, love to have an original print, but I think the puzzle pieces add a lot of character to the picture.
My dh made the pine frame for me several years ago. I painted it red to go with the dining room colors. I try to keep a little bit of red in every room. I think that it is a very 'happy' color and adds a little bit of 'spark' to decorating. Red and gold are usually my main fall decorating colors, as pumpkin--a color I do love--does not go well with the rest of my things--so I just use it in small bits. Usually with real pumpkins. I like to buy several of the smaller ones to put around the house.
My husband is off for a few days, so we will be getting some things done around here, as well as using some of the time to visit with our younger daughter at college.
Have a great weekend.
