Leaves of Autumn
When blades of grass are turning brown
And autumn leaves come floating down,
I dance with them on lawn and street
And scuffle through them with my feet.
Then to one special spot I take
All I can gather with my rake,
Heaping them high above my head
To make a giant featherbed,
Where, when I climb on top to rest,
I sink into a cozy nest.
September has approached but the days still feel like summer... leaves fall, girls going back to school.... but with temperatures near 90 here in the south, it's hard to think of fall decorating! :-)
I did pull a few things out to get started as I enjoy making my home seasonal. This simple door decoration I picked up at our local dollar tree.
i also found these adorable squirrels in the Dollar Tree, they are salt and pepper shakers but I just love them as a decoration.
Now in the morning I watch my girls walk off to the bus stop together, chatting away... wishing for a moment time could just stand still....
Spiders are making their webs everywhere!! We have somme really big spiders here in the south, lol.
My sweet Kathleen surprised me with a tea party the other weekend. I love these moments with my girls. She did a great job decorating it, making the food and keeping it a bird based theme.
Even her dress matched the occasion. That's my girl.... giving emphasis to the details and making every moment special.
Love seeing her sweet face sitting across from me. We had a delightful time chatting and enjoying our meal.
Thank you Kathleen for putting together this absolutely delightful lunch. I loved it and even more loved the time with you. :-)
