When I came home from all of my running around, this is what one of my plants looked like. No, I didn't forget to water this one . . . it is just begging for another drink. I told you it is hot.
So, while I am loving all of the fall decorating going on in blogland, I know that with all that I have going on right now I should just put it out of my head. But, for some reason that is all I want to do. I don't want one more detail packed into my head. I just want to "play house". I suppose it's a nesting thing . . . I suppose I should just tell myself it is way too hot to even contemplate now and I am way too busy to even think about it. Hmmm, all the more reason I want to do it.
So, to try and reach a happy medium and also stay out of the attic where the fall decor is hidden, I went out and plucked a few hydrangeas and sprigs of beautyberry to put on my kitchen counter.
And then I dug my Susan Branch "Autumn" book out and put some apples and cranberries into this jar.
A few apples and pears went into my yellow fall bowl.
I found these hand painted rooster wine glasses at the Goodwill. Couldn't pass them up.
Replaced my watermelon candle with this one and added a fall themed "stopper". I always have a seasonal candle right above my kitchen sink. I keep it there for two reasons ~ I can enjoy the fragrance while washing dishes and cooking and if I know it's always in the same place I don't forget to blow it out at night.
