Good Morning Friends!.......Happy mid-week to you all!.....I hope you are all well & enjoying this incredible time of year!....At out house, here in California, the temperatures the last few days are a little cooler, which I love....... Sitting out on our backporch, sipping my coffee these last few mornings, it almost seems that "Autumn" has truly decided to unveil herself!....The mornings have been "misty"..... & evenings, might I say "a bit chilly"!!......& I plan on enjoying each & every minute of it!
This year, like every year when September comes around, I return to my seasonal love affair with the the color "orange"!....There is just something about this "gloriously enchanting color of Fall"!.....I am usually a person who throughout the year favors colonial blues & browns, with lots of white & a bit of black to accent it all!...but at this time of year I simply must have splashes of orange tossed throughout our home!!!
This year however, I have decided my "orange addiction" is going "au natural"!....no more "faux"!.....No more Michaels "fake pumpkins"! This year it is all about the real thing!....REAL PUMPKINS!!!...I know buying the artificial ones is practical, but I am tried of storing seasonal decorations! No wonder all our garages are overflowing? ....I am going to enjoy visiting the farm stands & picking out a few fresh pumpkins!....Then when the season is over, I will make a few pies & compost the rest!.....
Another way to add "orange" to my home, is to pull out my delightful "orange/white pinwheel quilt",.... to be thrown over a chair.... or once again used as a lovely tablecloth, creating one of the most cozy tablesettings ever!
