Pancakes For Dinner

Our sweet kiddos stayed with us while Mommy & Daddy went to a church meeting yesterday evening.
After much discussion about what we should have for dinner, we Ethan decided we should have pancakes.  I asked if they wanted small or large pancakes.  He chose large.
Ethan ate 2 . . . 
Emma ate 3 . . .
We love spoiling our grandkids.

Words That Inspire

“Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

Fall In The Entry

Happy Friday!  
This is the last of the Autumn decor until Halloween Bling is added next week.
 The flower arrangement has changed on the entry table.
Fall leaf garland has been added to the staircase.
It wouldn't be fall unless my mother-in-law's orange quilt was hanging on the 2nd floor railing.

It's hard to believe Monday will be the first day of October.

Pumpkin Inspirations

Yesterday evening, my Hubby stopped by a produce stand not far from our house.  He was in search of a late season watermelon.  Here's the photo he messaged me.
I immediately got excited!
Then I saw this idea on Facebook this morning.  I'm inspired!

Here are a few more pumpkin inspirations on my

Glitter Pumpkins...these are so easy to do and so beautiful! I did this last fall with white pumpkins and black glitter! just spray glue on pumpkin and sprinkle with glitter! Gorgeous!

Probably way easier than carving, and you can do it with glow in the dark paints!

Autumn Touches In The Kitchen

A few fall touches have been added to the kitchen table & Hoosier cabinet. 
 I didn't go over board with the Autumn additions to this area.
 I guess I'm waiting for October to start adding Halloween bling.
BTW, three months from today is Christmas.  
90 days!  

Thanks a bunch for stopping by for a visit.

Autumn Mantel

The mantel has been updated for Autumn.
Click -----> here to see what the mantel looked like before the update.
I kept the book stack & added a leaf pitcher.
Here is another leaf pitcher with some faux pumpkins.
I love this little pitcher that I found on a junkin' trip back in the spring.
Read about that trip -----> here.
An old silver tray is the perfect backdrop for the hurricane & candle.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit!  I'd love to read your thoughts about the mantel.

Autumn In The Dining Room

Autumn has definitely arrived in our neck of the woods.  Love that feeling of chill in the air & clear blue skies.
Autumn has arrived in our dining room.  We had family dinner yesterday.  While we were eating, my 4 year old grandson, Ethan, told me that he liked my decorations.  That blew me away!
