Fall-ing Into The Season

I am so ready for Fall! Today it's been cool, breezy, and definately hot tea weather. Now the sun's out and it's warmed up a bit, but still, the leaves are falling. Summer is losing her grip. Good-bye summer heat! Hello to long sleeves, hot cocoa with marshmellows, and those lovely Autumn colors.

Now that "the boys", as I'm now calling Jack and Sam, are getting settled in and acclimated to our sedate way of life, I set about decorating the homestead. These are not all of the decorations I'll use, but it's a start.



I always start down by the gate and work my way up to the house. I guess it's because it's the curb side appeal (not that we have a curb anymore!) one gets of our place.

Then the front door.


Then the carport door. This is just the start, mind you. We're hosting a Hallowe'en costume party this year for all our close friends, and I plan to add a black spider webbing with white skulls and other "spooky" faces here. It's gonna be cool. [I hope.]


Then, I move inside.




This is as far as I've got this afternoon. Now, I'm tired. Thinking is hard for a blonde, you know. [giggle] Hubby is making sausage tortellini with homemade tomatoe sauce. That should be the perfect ending to a perfectly wonderful day. I hope everyone reading this has had a wonderful day too.

You two have such a lovely home/property. Everything looks festive and fun for Autumn. Hope "the boys" are settling in nicely. They are so cute! They remind me of Popcorn that we met at the garden center recently.

Sparky, like your decorations and am using them, virtually. There's not enough time to do what I need much less what I want -grin.
more pics of the pups, please.
