Before we moved to this house, my kitchen china cupboard, had always been just that... a china cupboard. It held china, and some colored crystal and a few antique floral teapots. It never changed, no matter what the Season or Holiday. I had lots of other places to "play" and decorate, so this one I left alone...

I hope you're having a wonderful Fall Day.
The treetops are changing to various hues of red, orange, and yellows.
It's warm, but you can feel the Fall changes.
I've been adding Autumn to my Kitchen China Cabinet...
The mismatched plates, cups, saucers, and tureens each become a work of art
...when Bittersweet and Leaves nestle around them.
Both the bovine and the birds...
are celebrating the wild garden within the walls of glass.

Hi Everyone and welcome to
Share Your Style
on this beautiful first Day of Fall!
This last week I met Holly from McCall Manor, What a great blog for you to check out! She has a wonderful post on Spray Painting Fabric Upholstered Chairs. What makes these chairs super special is this great monogram on the back...plus she's one funny gal!

Well, you know it's officially Fall when Google has gone Squirrely for pumpkins and gourds. This has been the best way to start my day and the Fall Season. Enjoy your Google Art announcement for Autumn!
Speaking of Pumpkins and Gourds, my farm stand finally opened,
so I came home with a few to get me started.
I already know I'll be back this weekend!

When I shared the Blogger Fall Home Tour put together by Brenda last week, one room didn't make the cut... that was the Kitchen Sitting Area. I had a few things left to get done. So, I have a few of those things done, but it's still not finished. I'm sure I'll have that done by the time to decorate for Christmas.

I have a confession to make...
I love to lounge in bed.
Especially on a weekend morning with a cup of coffee and my computer.
But even though I'm a bed-o-phile, I'm not a "sheet snob".
Actually, I usually don't give sheets much thought.
Clean, color coordinated, no cat hair...
OK, make that limited amount of cat hair.

First of all I want to thank all of you who came by on the Blogger Fall Tour that Brenda from Cozy Little House worked on so hard. Thankyou for all the wonderful comments. You know how to make a girl's day! Brenda brought together 28 "oldies" and "newbies" for the tour and you'll find tons of wonderful Fall Inspiration. If you didn't catch the line up, I'll have it here at the end of this post. You don't want to miss it!

Hello, all you wonderfully Stylin' Friends...
Welcome to Share Your Style!
I'm really enjoying seeing everyone take on Fall Decorating. Julie from Renaissance Mermaid has created a fun and cozy display on her Front Porch using green, black, and neutrals. I love her pillows and wicker, dressed for Fall. Hope you'll run by to visit once you've linked up your posts!

I thought I'd share a few pics with you today of the Bloggers Fall Tour that will happening starting Tuesday and going until Friday of this week. I'm just giving you a little "Taste of Fall". I hope you'll take the Tour with all 28 of us, who will be sharing projects, DIY, recipes, decor and more.

If I'm not careful, September will be over, and I'll be behind in sharing a few of my "First Fall" vignettes and decorating. I like to spread Fall out as long as I can, so I have lots of different layers and stages. Can you believe how fast this month is going by? I'd been putting off decorating the coffee table, because I wanted to do something "different", and I just hadn't figured out what that was going to be...

Hi Everyone, so glad you're here to
Share Your Style!
Oh, how I love a well styled cupboard! Often the prettiest are those that are simple and functional for day-to-day use. Joanne from A Pocketful of Blue shares some pics of the little things around her home, with some lovely vignettes in soft shades of blue. I love this wonderfully sweet and simple staging of a cake pedestal and some vintage cups and saucers.

Does that title sound like I've lost my marbles?
Like a crazy cat lady that spends all her time bird watching with her felines?
don't answer that...
Hope you all are having a great Labor Day Weekend. We stuck close to home except for a fun trip on Saturday to a new winery in the area. I'll show you a few pics and share a link with you soon. They also have a sheep farm, so that was the real draw for me. We've had a heat wave this last week, and it's supposed to break in the next few days. We had such a wonderful taste of cooler weather earlier. Hopefully, that will bring us back to the 70's. gosh, I'm more than ready.

We spent this last weekend on a trip to Eastern Missouri, Hawn State Park, and then visited the soon to be State Park of St. Genevieve, Missouri, which is one of the oldest settlements west of the Mississippi. It was a wonderful trip, very remote in the middle of 5000 acres of pristine woodland and river. Many of the leaves there are already starting to change. I was near giddy at seeing the golden leaves flutter to the ground along the river's edge.

I've always loved decorating for Fall with Naturals, and Sarah from Hyacinths for the Soul has shared her lovely dough bowl filled to the brim with these wonderful Osage Orange Hedge-Apples. Don't you love this great green color? Perfect for bringing in the colors of Autumn.
