Fall Colors quickly our colors change!  Yesterday, I took some beautiful photos of the autumn changes in my area.

I hope you enjoy-----

The first photo is taken from my back blessed am I??

This is a close-up view of a coleus in my parents' yard.....

This is another photo from my back deck....

This burning bush is also in my parents' yard.

This is taken at Beaverdam Lake in Asheville, NC...I am so lucky to live only 15 minutes from this gorgeous area!  *sigh*

One of the local farms just seconds away from my home.

I hope this inspires you to see the world through your camera lens.....and to truly appreciate the beauty God blesses us with, daily.

Finished Pool Signs

I have finally finished the signs for our outdoor/pool building! The construction will begin {yay} in February or March. Here is one I made just for 'us'......
We will have a 1/2 bath at the left end of the building. The plumbing and septic lines are already installed and ready for us to begin......So, here is a sign for the bathroom door.
This sign contains a portion of my absolute favorite inspires me and makes me *oh-so-happy*!!!
In honor of my girlie-friends, I made a Mermaid sign.....we're all welcome here!!! I love this....
And----inspired by Las Vegas, I created this next sign.......and we promise, it's our truth!!!
This final sign was created as a gift for my brother and his wife.....the 'year' is not as clear in this photo, but it's "1985"......they live in Florida and also have a pool. Thought this was the perfect anniversary present for them to hang near their pool!!
I sure enjoyed creating these signs!! I hope they've inspired you to do some creating of your own!!!! There are many ways to use these signs and many creative *sayings* or favorite quotes!!

Autumn in the Air

Are you feeling the cooler (or colder) nights? In our area, we are still in the mid '70's during the day....but much cooler at night!
Our leaves are just beginning to shed the greens of summer. They are starting to become tinged with reds and golds. By the end of the month, they will be in their full fall glory!
Do you change your home's decor to match the season? My kitchen is already awash with greens, golds, oranges and not much changes in there. The biggest things I change are my entryway and the outdoor decorations.
My hall table changes many times over the year.
I decorate it for spring, summer, fall, Christmas and then the longer {seeming} months of winter.
Are there spots in your home that change with weather or seasons?
What are those areas? Are you one [like my over-ambitious friends] that change out bed linens, bathroom towels and kitchen linens or accessories?
If so, kudos to you!!! My door wreaths, outside *signage* and hall table are the only things that I have the gumption to change out!!
Happy Fall, y'all!!!!
