I had waited so patiently ( impatiently) for the sweet summer days to arrive and all I can think about are the autumn months. I love the cool, crisp mornings tinted with the deep glow of afternoon sun as late summer wanes. The berry farms’ fields have been transformed, as the pumpkin vines grow and flower with the promise of pies and bright orange jack-o-lanterns that will add a spooky touch to the neighbors porch steps.
As I went over this week’s favorites, I thought about the last days of grilling, as well as indoor and outdoor entertaining and decor. I do hope you will click on the links provided and browse around these sites for additional inspirational ideas.
