It's beginning to look like fall has arrived.....
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I have been very busy. Transforming the house for the fall months is always a happy time here....you can never have to many fall decorations out, especially in Florida. We create the atmosphere, probably because we don't get the seasonal feel with the cooler temperatures. The witches, pumpkin guys and ghouls started to arrive this week..Scarecrows too. Becca, Sarah, Pa and I went to the pumpkin patch to get our first pumpkin for the season...well, actually, I picked out the biggest one I could find. I don't know what it weighs, but it's about 18 inches tall and the stem is 11 inches. It's a beauty and will make a great jack-o-lantern for our Halloween bon fire Halloween weekend. Becca and Sarah came home with ones they could carry....pie pumpkins.....but I remember Sarah saying, it's heavy gramma! She's 2
The guys that usually are present on the porch to greet guests haven't shown up yet, but I'm sure they will before it's over. As soon as I get my Fall Reversible Quilt back from Moda and quilt market, I'll hang it in the stairwell. I hope you make one too! And, if you do, please send me a picture!
It's such a wonderful time of year...............HAPPY FALL YA'LL
