A Bit Of Fall

Good morning and welcome Through My Back Door. We are having pumpkin spice coffee and there are orange cranberry muffins. I have never liked flavored coffee for breakfast, but had a pound of caffeine PS that my friend Dottie had given me last year left over. SO  one morning I found I was out of caffeine coffee and decided to open that and use it. Well, I love it of a morning. I have always just liked flavored of an afternoon and evening. Not anymore. It has just been a delight every morning. Deb and I drank it at the beach too for breakfast.
 Fall is on its way and has peaked in some places. Not here yet. The trees on the ridges around me are just turning. Hopefully after the torrent of rains yesterday they will get a move on. I have finished decorating inside and haven't done a thing outside. I am going to get on that this afternoon.  I will share a bit of fall here.
If you have been coming Through My Back Door very long you know I have trouble with two areas of decorating. My mantle and vignettes. They just cause me grief as I don't have an artist eye. Some people have the knack of putting things together, that I would never think of. Anyway here are few of my fall vignettes.
I know you have seen the mantle before but here it is again.
This little salt crock has goat smilk soap in it, in the bathroom. Linda Stinson made the little j-o-l and the acorn.
Well I am so happy you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: I did something today I have never done. Accepted a friend request from someone on FB I had no mutual friends with. However when I visited her timeline I saw she had a grandaughter fighting cancer. Her name is Olivia. As you know I have an Olivia, who is pretty special to me, and Amanda fought breast cancer. SO I immediately accepted. Will you all join me in praying for this little girl?
PSS: This was at Andrews ball game this past week.
I am so thankful to God for healing her and I want to pray for anyone who is fighting cancer.
PSSS: If you haven't liked my FB page, maybe you will visit it and like it.
