Small Fall, So Far

 Fall is here folks and I took a little time to make a small display.  Ya know how life gets busy and we just cant do all the things we wish we could.

 I sure have enjoyed looking around all over blogland and seeing the beautiful fall displays and pumpkin parties.
 Since my fall is small so far I wont be at any of the parties.. Just not enough to show off.

 Here in NC we have every color on display during this season.   I decided to make my basket with lots of things I love to see, so I added pumpkins , gourds, florals and seaside items too.
 Now if I only had time to stop and gather lots of goodies I see growing on the side of the road- awww- sigh.  I dont have that kind of time but I certainly do enjoy natures bounty . I know everyone thinks their state is beautiful but seriously, NC has it all and I love it.

 Its been in the mid 50's when I get up in the mornings and the air smells and feels so good. I absolutely
 adore this time of year , so I try to enjoy as much of it as I can with family and friends locally.
  We're going to the Farmers market this saturday and I know all the displays and produce will be Great. 
I'll be getting a few pumpkins to cook and freeze so I'll do a recipe post then as well as a tut on how I cook my pumpkins.. easy peasy- just the way I like it lol..
 I happen to have someone semi famous in my family and she is all about the Pumpkin:)  more on that later.

 My rooms- living family and dining are all on hold for now as I attend to other issues. Its very unlike me to be this calm and peaceful when a room isnt complete, but this time, I'm fine with it.  Life is good and when its all meant to Come Together, it will .. 
I'm joining the Make It Pretty Monday Party
 I am wishing all of ya'll a wonderful weekend.. Enjoy every moment~!


  1. Beautiful Sonny! I agree with you about NC. We were there a few weeks back, and it is just gorgeous. I was fortunate enough to do a little junking there and met some wonderful folks.
    I can't wait for that pumpkin recipe to see how it is cooked and frozen. That is something I have never done.

  2. Morning Sonny,
    Love your pretty Fall arrangement,
    has lots of beautiful elements, and that 50 degree mornings sound divine
    to this girl! Am so looking forward to that....but I am afraid it is a ways off for us yet! Oh Well.........

    Glad you are feeling peaceful about the things you can't get to.........
    one thing is for sure it never goes away, there is always something let to get to...........right???

    I am hoping to finish up my living room this morning and pack up any
    leftover Fall stuff till time to take it down again! lol

    Did I ever tell you I lived in N.C. for a few months....way back in the early years of our marriage about 39 yrs. to be exact we lived in Goldsboro from Oct. to Jan. I think it was............loved it and met
    some dear friend there, that we still stay in touch with, have only seen them once since then, but
    we just became such good friends in such a short time and they are sweethearts, and we will always remember those precious times in N.C.
    Glad you are enjoying your Fall.
    Blessings, Nellie

  3. I love the shells added into the arrangement. Makes me feel like it's Fall at the beach.

  4. Love your fall arrangement! Yes, state of NC is beautiful indeed. My Inlaws has a place in Franklin and when we go I always love to browse the little town there! The colors are beautiful! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. I love your basket, Sonny! That looks so pretty and if you have a small amount of Fall decor, I think this was the perfect thing to add. That's a good frame of mind ~ it will come together. Better to wait for something you love than rush to get something you don't.

  6. So Sonny are you related to the wife of Peter-Peter:)

  7. Your basket is so pretty! I love the berries spilling out! I have to get started, I will probably miss all the parties!

    You have a good attitude about finishing up your rooms. It should be a fun time, not stressful, although that's easier said than done! It will all get done in good time!

    Happy Weekend!


  8. I am like you. Incomplete projects makes me want to get it done NOW...but sometime it does not work that way.

  9. Sonny, it is absolutely beautiful! I need to get in gear and get all of my Fall decor out. Thank you for sharing. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House which goes live at 8am CST on Monday morning. Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  10. Soo pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I adore all of the different colors and textures of your pretty fall arrangement!


Ya'll Come Back Now, Ya Hear :-)
