Hooray for cooler temperatures! We saw the last of the 90+ degree weather last week (fingers crossed). It was a summer of record-breaking heat waves. We’re now saying hello to a cool front and getting some sweet relief.
Our belongings are still a bit unorganized, but I found this cute hooked rug just in time for a little fall decorating here at the cottage. I ordered it several years ago from a rug hooker in the northwest. It is now hanging up in the front hallway. I also found the fabric leaves and acorns made by a friend of mine, and those are now arranged in a cut glass bowl in my home office.
A week ago, we got a huge pot of yellow mums in a basket, and it is strategically located on the front porch, next to the steps. It was a bit late to shop for a fall wreath this past weekend, but we found a lovely swag to hang over the door instead. And it was so inexpensive that I couldn’t have made one for less.
Fall has finally arrived! And the stores are already stocking the shelves with Christmas decorations. Sheesh!
