Are you preparing for fall too?

 I spent a few hours last week out in the yard trying to clean up a bit of the overgrowth that is taking over my gardens! The rose bushes are taller than I am!
 The hydrangeas are all in bloom and gorgeous!
 I have several plants blooming that I don't have any idea what they are! Ha!
 I  think the young buck I was telling you about decided to eat all the bird and squirrel food. He left quite a mess behind!
 Again, I am not sure what this is, but it is such a pretty little flower. They are popping out all over the yard. Do you know what this could possibly be?
 The lavender is blooming... one of my favorites =)
 More of the pretty pink flower.

 This one I think is geranium.
 Not sure what this is... if you happen to know, please leave a comment letting me know, I would so appreciate it!
 The hubby and I made a quick stop at the goodwill, I found this table for $3.99!
 It is going to get some Annie Sloan chalk paint and become a bench for the laundry room! I bought some padding and cute stripe fabric while at Joann this morning.
 The hubby finally took down the ugly awning in the kitchen! WOW! Huge difference, I love it! (But I knew I would ;)) Need to figure out how to change out the ugly big white track lighting. Probably need to add a curtain or shade now too, I am thinking black and white check or maybe a black and creme toile?
 I decorated a bit for fall today, I couldn't help it! I totally enjoy fall! Hot tea in the evening, a warm fire, a good book... oranges, reds, yellows... pumpkins, apples, ghosts and goblins! What's not to enjoy?!?
 Gotta have the fall m&ms for the hubs.
 New dish towels from Kohls.
 Fall mantle number one... I will make a few changes a little closer to Halloween and Thanksgiving.
 Used some sunflowers and feathers this year.
 I wasn't quite ready to give up the beach yet though!

 A few orange, red and yellow leaves for color... just a little. (Did you notice my picture of Liam? Isn't he the cutest? Special thanks to my friend Lisa for the frame).
 I am testing these knobs I found at Joann this morning $5.00 a PAIR! I thought they would be cute in the kitchen... I do love them, but not sure I want them ALL the time in there. May have to get a couple more I only bought two and could really use 4 more.
Joann also had these cute blue bird ones, I bought 2 of them , I thought they would be cute on a dresser. I may put then on the top two drawers in the beach guest room.
I didn't accomplish as much as I had hoped this weekend, but it was relaxing and spent with my fabulous hubby, so that is all I want! Hope you had a lovely relaxing weekend too!
