Picture This............



How was your first day of Autumn?  Mine was wonderful,the weather fit it just right too. It has been a wonderful Lord's day all the way around. I finely got a few things done on Saturday and took a few pictures. A bit of Autumn decorating, some other color and vintage look I have added too.  I hope all of you have a blessed week.....I hope this Autumn like weather hangs around for a bit....,but here in East Texas...one just never knows  :)  Blessings, Shelley


This shelf I had painted black at one time, it was over the sink.. now, I have painted it this pretty aqua color, and moved it here.


The desk top............with some of my Amish things...I even found a small German testament at the charity shop here in my little town. That's it you see beside the FAITH sign.






My front door........a basket full of Autumn posies.


Green lantern hanging in the kitchen.


And some very cherry kitchen towels hanging on the stove  :) Just a few items I picked up on the clearance shelf at the Dollar Store!



Its a start...for a more vintage cottage look...I am pleased so far  :)   ,but I am about as bad as our Texas weather...if you don't like what you see today...just hang around...Its bound to change  ;)

Love your shelf and the towels! I didn't see those at *my* dollar store!

My first day of autumn was spent feeling sick and I still feel bad. I'm supposed to have a endoscopy tomorrow so now I'm a bit stressed as to cancelling or not...

Love all your pretty touches...the new shelf color is wonderful and that green and white truck is such a fun piece. I bet you fill that with all kinds of fun things depending on the season.

I like your color combinations...unexpected and perfect for early fall! Also ike the way you have placed objects together and how they relate to each other.

Hope your fall weather sticks around, too. It has been lovely here though we still keep getting humidity. Right now it is 45 degrees at seven in the morning.
