Getting my Fall-On

Starting to decorate for Fall always begins in the sunroom.
My quilts and wreath are changed out first,
then pillows and flowers and tweaking the baker's rack.

Last week on a cool day I made the transition,
which is something I always look forward to
for the change of seasons.

Tuesday it was 99, a record breaker for our town,
but a cool front is coming in to drop us down to the 60's,
so I'm hoping the cooler weather will give me that push
to get things decorated.

Have to have my splashes of orange!

A few weeks ago I finally got around to making
 my feed and grain sack pillows
that had been on the to-do list for quite awhile.

Isn't this one a cutie, with the little chicks?

And this one was an old laundry bag from who knows HOW long ago.
(get a load of that phone number!)

So, this is just the start.
I found my first mums today!!
YAY!! It can't be Fall until the mums have arrived.

The girls are happy that the weather is turning cooler
since they love to lounge in the sunroom.

I'm updating this post for 

Thanks so much for coming by,
