Why I Look Forward To Fall

Come on in and sit down. Would you like a glass of sweet tea or a cup of coffee? You can have either. If you are thinking my title is a little off, don't blame me. It is all Marie's fault, or Old Lady Morgan, as she is commonly known by. She is having a giveaway on her blog,primitives by olde lady morgan.
You need to go over there and see what she has asked us to do if we want to enter it. So, here I am.
One of the things I look forward to in the fall, is coming home to this.
  I love mums and fall colors. It makes me smile when I drive up the drive and see this.
Another thing I look forward to is cool morning and evenings. When you can be so cozy in your home, sitting by this.
I look forward to hot apple cider, making homemade apple butter, making pumpkin squares, football, basketball, oh my the list goes on. Of course I love the changing colors. Just so beautiful it makes my heart  pound. When the leaves fall this is what I see.
I guess fall is my favorite season and I am thankful OLM gave me this opportunity to think about it. I know we don't want to rush our lives, but don't you get excited just thinking about what is to come. It is no secret I like gourds. I also look forward to doing this.
And I also like setting my table with my pewter. I use it year round, but it just seems so fall and Christmas to me. What about you? Do you use yours year round?
Well I hope you enjoyed coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS:Hop on over there and see her giveaway. You will return.
PSS:  God has answered prayer again. Miss Amazing Amelia, has gone home. Thank you for all of your prayers and I can't thank you enough.
PSSS: Some of our fellow bloggers are still going through some tough times. Lots of them, so would you just take a minute and lift them up in prayer?


  1. So happy for Amelia and her whole family. Betty, you are making me realize that I may not be completely crazy wishing a 'bit' of my life away. I love Fall so much!

    Beautiful pictures....enjoy the last of Summer and I will do the same!


  2. Fall is my second favorite right after spring when first daffy's appear of course that happens here in February early March when everyone else is knee deep in snow. But I do love the cooler fall evenings and all the Halloween, Thanksgiving decorations and looking forward to Christmas. Here it is the almost the end of July and I just cannot wait for this summer to be over, too many continous days of over 100 degrees, but a fork in me "I'm done".

  3. Fall is lovely through your back door Betty! Great news for Amelia. Warm Blessings! Amy

  4. Betty,

    I love the colors of all but I love summer best. I like capris and flip flops and the warm sun. Fall also lets me know winter is on the way. I do not like winter at all! I did love your pewter table setting!


  5. Fall is my favorite time of the year too.

    So happy Amelia went home. Praise the Lord.


  6. Betty: Yes, I love fall, too but we have had such a hot summer here in CA. that I haven't even uncovered the table and chairws yet! (It is on the west side of the house!) Love how your blog looks and am so happy that Amelia is well enough to go home! What progress! {{HUGS}} Joy

  7. Thanks for inviting us all in for a refreshing beverage! I love fall too, my very favorite! Some fall things are starting to sneak into the shop and we are working like crazy on our Harvest At The Mill show for September (wish you were going to be here - especially for our blog gathering). But, before fall gets here, enjoy the rest of your summer, Dawn

  8. Fall is my favorite time of the year too...and we going towards spring too :)
    So happy Amelia went home...big hugs
    Love cucki x

  9. I love Fall too! Your home is always decorated so beautiful for Fall. Excited to get things done so I can decorate for Fall here at our new House. GO AMELIA! I am so excited that she is getting to start her new life and grow, grow, grow! Not only in size but in her love for the Lord! I just know God has big things for her! Keep us updated on her wonderful new life! Hope you are feeling better! Have a great week.! Blessings!

  15. I'm loving this post :) especially the table setting in the last picture. I share your love of mums, fall colors, and especially fall foods. A close second to all of those would have to be looking for great Haunted Houses in the PA area to check out with my family in October.
