Making Mirror Image Wreaths for the Shed

Hi!  Well, the last few days have felt like fall again.  It has been a roller-coaster ride of temperatures around here lately.  Most days have felt more like August than October and I think that is why it has taken me so long to get my home decorated with fall decorations. However, today the weather finally felt seasonably correct and I thought it was a good day to show you how I made two mirror image wreaths to go on the doors of my shed.

Outdoor Harvest Decorations

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  It's a great time to decorate the outside of your home with organic and natural elements. Fall decorating really is the beginning of holiday decorating for me.  I especially love all the colors of fall.  The changing leaves provide a natural backdrop for beautiful outdoor "decor". Pumpkins, gourds, berries, branches, all can be used to create great scenery around your home, inside and out.  For today, I am focusing on outdoors.

Enjoying the Last Few Days of Warm Weather on the Back Deck

Hey, there!  Well, the leaves are starting to fall and I know that the time of enjoying meals and snacks on the back deck may be coming to a close.  I say this as the weather man is predicting temps close to 80 degrees today so, who knows?  However, while it is still possible I think we should enjoy these last warm moments in the sun and share a few snacks on the back deck.  It is especially nice when surrounded by beautiful fall colors.

Patchwork Pumpkin Patch Cake

Happy October!  It's finally feeling like fall here in Massachusetts.  With the change of weather I am finally moving forward into autumn~~emotionally and in every other way.  The heat is actually starting to come on in my house.  If that isn't a sure sign of fall, I don't know what is!
 Today, I am changing it up from what I usually do and sharing some baking.  To be honest, baking is not my forte and I really should leave it to professional baking bloggers but, since the cake is all done and turned out kind of cute, I thought I would share it with you anyway :).

Remembering Kiersten and Chris' Wedding

Hi, Everyone!  September is almost over!  Can you believe it?  I can't.  In celebration of September, I am remembering a special wedding from last September.  Chris and Kiersten celebrated their one-year anniversary this week on the 25th.  Since it was such a beautiful wedding with beautiful wedding flowers, I thought I would share some of the photos again with you.  I am being nostalgic!

This was the color palette for the wedding.  Weren't the colors gorgeous?!

Late Harvest to Table Tablescape

Hi, all!  It's been a busy week for me and I wasn't sure if I would be able to get a post out or not.  Here's to hoping I can get it done before the end of the day!  Oh, Happy Fall, by the way.  I can't believe it is September 22nd already!

I have had this idea of a "harvest to table tablescape" rolling around in my head for a few weeks now.  I have to admit, however, that the harvest part of it would not come from me.  The only contribution made by my garden to the tablescape would be a few sprigs of basil from my container garden.  But, I love the idea of farm-to-table and wanted to experiment with it a little bit.

Road Trip to Mackinac Island Continued

Hi, Everyone!  As promised, I am finishing up the story of my trip to Mackinac Island in Michigan. You can read the first part of the story here, if you'd like.  I finished the first part of the story with my husband and me stopping for the night in Bay City, Michigan.  We got up the next morning and headed toward Mackinac Island, the true destination of our trip.  This leg of the trip took about 2 1/2 hours.  It was a pretty ride with lots of scenery and before we knew it we were in Mackinaw City.  We would have to take a ferry from there to Mackinac Island.
