Come on in Through my Back Door where the coffee is on and fall is trying to creep inside! Well lets just say it has made an appearance. I still need some bittersweet and some mums, but that will come. Things have been hopping around here, so get your coffee and lets visit a while. Do you want to?
Last night Andrew came and spent the night. We were up bright and early this morning. He had breakfast,which consisted of 2 peanut butter sandwiches and ice tea.(His parents can do the healthy stuff, here it is what ever he wants) This is what we were doing before 8:30.
After that came this of course.
We played, watched cartoons, and had a picnic outside. All of this before 12:00! What fun I had. He is the light of my life, as he thinks I am a cool great grandma. You will have to ignore the mop bucket and the step stool. The stool was out for him to stand on, while he stirred the cookie dough. Now on to that other visitor. Fall decorations. While we were at the gathering lots of fall decorations were shown and sort of got me in the mood to decorate. So I did put a little fall out. I will give you a peek. (That is probably all you want as I have been told I am rushing the season)
I am trying to keep it simple.
This stove board makes me think of prim friends. Angela gave me the candle and Sue gave me the dish towel.
I love the little pin keep Marla gave me. I won't make you look at any more decorating for fall, But I do want to share some of the books that come out for fall here, Through My Back Door. I am an avid reader and love to decorate with books. (I have pushed books on all my grandchildren.) I like to display certain books during the various seasons. Here are some of the fall favorites.
Susan Branch books make me want to snuggle in with a cup of something hot,(usually coffee) have soft music and candle light. They make me want to enjoy home and bring out my nesting instincts. They are just warm fuzzies.
I also like the GooseBerry Creek books too.Lots of easy recipes.
Of course, next to Gladys Tabor, this is my favorite. Tasha Tudor. Her illustrations are so pure. I love everything she has written. Pumpkin Moonshine, has to be out until after Halloween.
This, of course is not seasonal but don't you love the fall colors? You will always find seasonal books when you come Through My Back Door, where life is good.
ps: I just have to once again say thank you for reading my ramblings and sharing my coffee. It is wonderful to read your comments and know you have been here.
