Signs of Fall, Fun and Projects

 September is moving right along

and the last days of summer are coming to an end.

I'm a summer lover and it never seems to last long enough!!

Signs of the next season are showing up in our yard.

Yesterday this kid surprised me with this...

Who knew that you could put your hands
 in the bubble solution,
blow through your fingers....
and get big bubbles with just your hands??

I didn't!
He came up with it all by himself.

He also is loving this bike ramp they concocted....

Go Noah!

Then Nana says in her head...

On a rainy day I asked my hubby to hang pictures.

I've been buying frames and finally was ready.
truth be told,
I changed my mind on a few things during the hanging process
so it really wasn't ready  after all.

The next day the needed frames were purchased
and only 1 is waiting to be hung.
I'll take a pic to show you after it's complete.

Each item under the shelves is something I saved from our kids.
I just love it!!

I took something down here and added a cross stitch
 my mother did when she was young.

It just felt better there than where I had planned.

The large piece of artwork was recently purchased 
at a friend's yard sale.
I love it here in our bedroom!
Nothing has been hung on the walls other than a mirror 
so it's high time to do some pretty.

I want to paint the nightstands and get new lamps too.

It's been a quiet Sunday for me.
Hope your day has been just as you hoped it would be.

I pray you  are staying well
I pray for the end of Covid!

It's getting harder to stay positive.
Yet I'm so thankful for the faith I have in an all-knowing God
who cares far more for me (all of us!)
than any human possibly could. 

God bless you ♥

Doris, I like that you are wanting to do some decorating. I have kind of just been in a rut. I want to do a few more things too. I honestly need to sort and toss. But I don't want to to not think happy thoughts and plan decor. So I am trying to get motivated by reading everyone's blogs. I really love your headboard a lot. Oh yes, kids can scare us . Blessings, xoxo, Susie

The flowers and trees in your yard are so pretty. That Noah is such a creative little fellow! Love his bubbles and the bike ramp. Your pictures and the shelf are decorated so beautifully. The cross stitch by your Mother is a real treasure. Wishing you a blessed week. xo

I hope to get to your neck of the woods this week for our wedding anniversary. It is still up in the air -- according if I think I can drive it. Usually it's a 90 minute drive. I'm glad to see things are still green although it's supposed to be a bit chilly! I am loving all your decorating. I am still purging the house. I love your bedroom. So cool how you made a headboard out of shutters.

Beautiful changes around your home. I am praying for the end of Covid also. Noah is doing some tricks, I bet you gasped at that jump:) Enjoy your day dear Doris, we will get through these troubling times... I am praying! HUGS!

I love your pictures and the way you are decorating. Fall will be here before we blink twice so we best be ready. Noah is having a ball and that is what children are supposed to do. Good for him. Praying your new week is a good one.

Finally catching up here! Wow, you always were the artistic one in the family! Your decorating style is fantastic.

Noah cracks me up, especially going over that ramp!

Running a bit late with blog reading this week, but unlike yourself I am very happy that fall weather is arriving. Summer is not my favorite, but I do enjoy it for the bright colors and sunny days. Fall is my favorite season and winter not as much, but tolerable as spring will be coming afterwards! Nice that you had Dale hang the frames which will make you smile very time you look at them as the ones we have hung do in our home. Noah certainly was creative with that bubble blowing...never knew you could do that.
