And You Thought I Was Finished -- Ha! Ha!

Hey everyone!  Hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend.  I'm a "3-day weekend widow" this weekend.  The Man is taking a class from 9 am to 10 pm all 3 days, so I am left up to my own devices or would that be "vices?"  Heehee!  Other than spending way too much time blogging, I have been doing other things as well, like "tweaking."  In my own defense, I have also cleaned the house, gotten caught up on laundry, and cleaned up our patio.  I truly can't clean house without changing a few things and hopefully, for the better.  Please indulge me while I share.

Most of my tweaking occurred here in the "heart of our home," where else?
I love this view of my kitchen.



I just threw this little centerpiece together in about 5 minutes simply using what I already had.

Used my cake stand, spread out some raffia, wrapped a jarred candle with some burlap ribbon tied  with twine, plunked down my funky little rooster, added an old paper mache letter "S," a natural sphere & a pumpkin sitting on a candle holder.  I scattered a few leaves & some acorns just to finish it off.  

It's sitting right in the middle of the island.

It looks cute from all sides!

I've been looking for something to hold my frequently (yes, like every meal) 
used seasonings, oil & butter.

I dug this piece of milk glass out of my china cabinet & decided it was perfect.  It belonged to my 
Great Grandmother.

It's a cake pedestal.  I just love the sweet little base.

This is our new toy appliance, and boy, does it work well.



Did a bit of tweaking here, too.


                           
Oh, looky, it's my handsome son in the new cookbook!  Shameful, I know!  I'm working on a little
"somethin' somethin'" about the cookbook but more on that later, I hope!

I love this little tealite holder that I've had for years.  Got it at Big Lots!






I added a little something to my kitchen window.



I simply reworked one of my Spring wreaths.  You can see it HERE.



I just tucked in a few faux leaves & a cluster of acorns.


Yep, still love this view!

Wanted to add just a teensy bit of Halloween.

Mr. Halloween Bear doesn't really look "Spooky," does he?  I made him several years ago.

I love the reflection of my living room in this mirror.

Okay, so I truly believe this is my final "Fall-related" post!  Really, truly!  I do hope you've enjoyed my
slight obsession with all-things Fall.  I've certainly enjoyed sharing our home during this wonderful time
of year.  I'm excited about Christmas, but I will be sad to put my Fall decor away.  I do plan to continue to enjoy the fruits of my labor for a few more weeks.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you will come again soon.
