Yes, I  live in Texas.
We still have August heat and sunny skies! 
those gorgeous crisp, cool Autumn days fill my thoughts! 

I wanted to share this beautiful new pitcher
that my darling Miss Judy presented to me for my birthday!
One of her fabulous Estate Sale finds down in the Big P! 
This is going to grace our Thanksgiving table!

I have a new art print that needs framing!
I am planning on finding the perfect space
in our formal living room!
The name of this print is "Hydrangeas!"
What's your art style?

Afternoon pick- me- ups
are now composed of hot lemonade tea and gingersnaps!

Have you browsed through all your fall catalogs yet?
I love spending an hour in the afternoon
dreaming about all those lovely decor items
that I find decorating inspiration from.

We are still anxiously awaiting the return of
They are being welcomed back in Austin this weekend,
so I told Rob to be sure to put this on his grocery list!
I know Blue Bell will ALWAYS have reserved freezer space
in our home!

Here's what's on my wish list for fall.....
Hunter Boots in this gorgeous wine color....and
a new quilted jacket to match! 

I hope the darling is reading this post......

The Divine Miss M is already tempting
me with her delectable early fall dinners!

Now THIS does look like an autumn morning doesn't it?
She took this shot of the fog over the lake
while taking her morning walk on the golf course!
Lovely and peaceful......

Fall has a way of making us all feel thankful~


  1. Oh My!! that pitcher is exquisite! I'm hosting my son's Reveal Party for new bebe this weekend....that pitcher would look darling with my other table decorations.....heheh, wish we lived closer.....heheh!! Watch for pics after weekend. It's being held at our deer camp and them is ....you guessed it! Buck or Doe???
    AND OH.MY.GAWD.................BLUE BELL IS COMING BACK!!!! My hubs says to rev up the motor home cuz a road trip is in order to travel to wherever it is first located!!! and we have a huge freezer in RV so I'm sure he's serious. He is a human who eats blue bell every night of his life........and never gains a lb, low blood pressure with hardly a heartbeat. Makes me sick. I smell it as he walks by. So he has been in withdrawal since his other girlfriend (BB) went away.........!!!

    1. This made me laugh jmac.....when you've had the best, there's no other substitute! Reveal parties are quite the new celebration and such fun! I look forward to seeing the pics! Thank you for visiting today!

  2. Oh, that is a lovely pitcher! Love the sweet paintings on it. Blue Bell! I'm glad it's coming back. There is not Blue Bell up here. There are these ice creams shops here called Stewart's! Lord have mercy, I think it's even better than Blue Bell is you can imagine! :) Fall is in the air and I have to admit, I do not miss the hot and humid August and Septembers in Texas! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
