Fall is Finally Here!

First  ... let me thank you for the comments on the bench and cedar chest we painted in an earlier post this week.  It took me forever to decide to paint the pieces and I am so glad I did!  Life is too short to not be surrounded by things you really like.  So why not get out the paint!   We had our master bedroom furniture painted in the same color a couple of years ago.  I will share it with you in an upcoming post.  I am trying to find "before" pics! 

I am so glad Fall is here!  It's my favorite season with the cooler days, less humidity and the changing  colors of leaves on the trees. 
Decorating the house with the oranges, reds and golds of the season makes it more welcoming and cozy. 
This is what I am planning to do this weekend ... buy pumpkins!
If only I had a red truck like this to fill with pumpkins!  I adore this little red truck I bought several years ago at Hobby Lobby.  It's just the little things in life that can bring a smile to my face :)  I put a Christmas tree in it for Christmas and I thought why not get it out and put pumpkins in it for Fall.
And my sweet little girl with her denim dress.  Isn't she the cutest with her sunflower and harvest basket full.  Love the sunflower!
Jennifer is coming home tomorrow and we really are buying pumpkins to decorate the front porch and who knows what else we might get into!   I love having her home if even just for a few hours. 
If only we had an old red truck to jump into and fill with pumpkins!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Donna your little red truck is so cute. Maybe I should try and find one. It is so funny one of my friends and I where just talking about how neat it would be to have an old truck. I know how you feel it does feel good when our kids come home for a visit.
