A Little More Fall

Good Monday morning and come on in Through My Back Door. Oh yes, the coffee is on and I have the mustard cups out. They look so fallish. I love the colors of fall, don't you? In reality I am a winter, but my soul is fall. Remember when we had our colors done and swore that was the only colors we would ever wear?lol Well here are my fall dishes. I love the mustard.
I enjoy them so much. They make me happy.Some other fall around here. I hope you enjoy it.
This is the German Cupboard in the reading nook area of my livingroom, as are all the pictures today.
I always think of my house as being a fall house or a Christmas house. I don't know why, but it seems to put on its happy face during these seasons.

You have seen my pumpkin pinkeep from Deb Peterson. You know how I am addicted to pinkeeps. What you may not know is that Deb is the featured designer in Mercantile Gathering magazine's Fall issue. If you haven't gotten a copy, please do. You will learn how Deb chose her business name. It is a neat story and a neat magazine.
Well, you have made my day, stopping for coffee, Through My Back Door, where life is good.
PS: It is with a heavy heart I think of all those affected by Irene. I pray for each of those affected and they soon can get back to normal. Please remember them when you pray.


  1. I always love visiting through your back door :) Its a wonderful home and you have it decorated so nice...that cupboard is a it. Blessings

  2. OOh Betty, your fall decorating looks contagious! I better get busy. That blanket chest and child's ladder back are simply awesome!!! I am thankful that we were some of the lucky ones as Irene passed by. Have a great day!

  3. Getting caught up. I have missed so much!The Gathering looks to have been the best time! Angie has talked about trying to get some people together in Ohio but I think it needs more planning.I love your little blue firkin, the settee in your fireplace, all the fall decor. Fall is my favorite season. Andrew looks to be the luckiest of grandkids---getting to bake with you! Aren't they precious? I am enjoying my morning coffee with you and I think I am voting thumbs down on the Sam's Choice. Give me Folger's.
    Loving your German cupboard. That's my heritage and I have never seen one! It is absolutely spectacular!

  4. Beautiful!
    I always enjoy seeing your photos.

  5. Thank you for sharing. You have inspired me to do a little more fall decorating. It is almost September, just a few more days. Very beautiful home. Have a blessed day. ~Sara

  6. I am also a "Winter with a Fall soul" Your decorating is looking so nice. Now that Irene has passed (Thank God no damage in my immediate area)and the weather is clear, cool and fresh, I am going to start a bit of mine as well! Thanks for the those mugs! Have a great day..

  8. Love all of the Fall touches, Betty! I think I'm getting in the mood, too! It's a beautiful, but too short season, that I love! Thanks for the coffee!

  9. Hi Betty, Love all the pumpkins, starting to look like fall in your house, my favorite the pumpkin pinkeep, yes I have an addiction for them also, take care, Vicky

  10. Beautiful Betty! Love all of it, including those dishes! I am so wanting to try the stitching soon.
    I think I am ready for my vacation! I am not ready for winter! LOL! I hope you have a great day!
    I am pooped out!

  11. Hi Betty love your fall decorating i need to start mine. I have those same cups i love that color in the fall ... smiles

  12. I usually try to wait until the 1st of September for my fall decorating - but have to confess, I've been sneaking a few things in early - just a slow transition from the Americana, then crows and sunflowers and few pumpkins....then bring on the HALLOWEEN!! ;o) Yes, my soul - and heart - belongs to fall!! Your home and decorating are, as usual, tantalizingly beautiful - you truly do have some wonderful pieces - I'm so loving that incredible blanket chest! Thanks for the coffee - tasted so good out of the wonderful mustard those pieces!! Have a wonderful week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  13. I love the mustard too! Fall is such a beautiful time of year. You just can't beat it!

  14. I love those mustard dishes too,Betty. So inviting is your home. I LOVE that cupboard. The wood is beautiful. Love all the grains showing in the wood. Love the pumpkin pinkeep. I have visited Deb's site and I think I am ordering the pattern for that one and try and learn how to do CCS. It looks easy enough for me. Love all the fall decorations. Thanks for the coffee and the visit.

  15. Betty, it is lovely. I always love seeing your antiques and prim design.

  16. Betty: Love your "Fall" look and yes, my house always feels better in the fall or Christmas. (Really my favorite time!) :-) Love the little chair and desk (?) on top of the blanket box behind your red couch...what a cute idea! It is still hot here in CA. so I haven't even thought of "fall" decorating yet but did get tons of Mum plants at Lowes; they are on sale this weekend. I finally posted; come see me: Hugs, Joy

  17. Hi Betty, SO cozy and welcoming...Isn't it funny how our homes can just make us smile? Comfort and family...I SO love to read your blog...Have a great day...
