Oct 7, 2009


I am now in the process of just doing the finishing touches on my autumn decorations, yeah! At long last, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have some pictures of some of the changes. I am not really an orange person but love the colors in autumn. My entire house gets transformed. I got a good picture of my mantel. It is so hard to photograph. Did I ever tell you I collect vintage pictures of pretty sayings? Photographed one, will post others for you to see soon.

These damp days have force me to stay inside my home. So, I changed the bedding, put up autumn curtains and I am almost finished with Maya's crown. (Will show you at soon as it is done.) I am just a working machine these days. Feeling very together, which is rare for me. I am a project woman, I always have something, I am working on. Because of this, I feel like I am always behind. They are projects of my own making, too. None of them really need to be done, I don't need anything, I just have to do it. Do any of you do this? What is it? Are we driven to drive ourselves mad? I am just sick and finally realizing it? Scary!

Hope you are having a wonderful week. Please say an extra little prayer for Andrew. From reading her blog, it looks like he has had a little set back! Blessings my friends, Martha

Lovely decorations. I love the baubles in the bowls. So pretty! How nice that you change everything up for Autumn. I wish I could do that. My house is a rainbow of bright colors every day of the year. :) I love sayings and quotes. I don't think there's much of anything you don't collect. HA! I am always working on something. Sometimes I don't know what to work on, I just know I need to do something. Hope you are having a great day! Tammy

I am the same way - I always have to have a project or three going. It is hard for me to sit still - even though I think I have a lazy streak in me! Your home looks lovely - I love the print about giving roses. Oh my gosh, it is so wonderful!

Oh me , too Martha! I always seem to feel like I am meeting myself coming back, and sometimes like you, I have done it to myself!
Love your decor! Suzei. xxx

Hi Martha. I found your blog through Aries Gypsy blog. Just thought I'd stop by. I love your blog and your fall decorations. You remind me of my friend yaya over at Chronicles of yaya. Home type person and that is good. Have a great rest of the week.

It is all so lovely! You are all set there! The little ghost bucket is wonderful! I have never seen one of those! Thanks for stopping by! My computer isn't working as well as it should so my posts have been few and far between! I'm off to add one now. Have a great week!
Hugs, Lisa
