~Happy 1st Day of Fall and Simple & Sweet Fridays # 238~

Happy 1st day of Fall!!
We're so excited that we got rain on Tuesday too!
The garden definitely needs it.
Decorating the house with lots of foliage from the garden.
I love the light green color from the eucalyptus leaves.
The cinderella pumpkin that we grew in the garden
 looks so pretty with lights on it!
I picked baby boo pumpkins and butternut squash from the garden  to display with the Fall wreath.
I added lights to our buffet with leaves and a wheat bundle.
Putting some refreshments out for a fun weekend.
I wanted to tell you it's my birthday on Friday!!
Our kids will all be home to celebrate my 65th!!
Where did the time go?
I made this wreath with peach and creme roses from Michael's, Love the colors.
I added eucalyptus sprigs and green berries.
I love how it turned out!
I love amaranth flowers for Fall arrangements.
I bought some plants last year but they never came up.
Red apples add a wonderful glow to a wooden bowl.
I put out my velvet pumpkins I made last year.
I thought some bling on them would be a special touch.
My whimsical birds on the candelabra with dried hydrangeas & lights make up a Fall vignette.



I love how simple the photo looks with just some silver eucalyptus.
I had to buy some pumpkin cream cheese muffins at Trader Joe's.
They are very tasty!
I made Pumpkin bread.
I bought the bakeware at Home Goods.
It looks like a magical carriage!
I found this recipe on pinterest and had to try it.

They were delicious!
Here's the recipe;
Hope you like it!
I wanted to stamp and watercolor.
We are harvesting lots of different vegetables and fruits this year.
Here are a few!
Olives from our olive tree.


Eggplant
Zucchini
Tomatoes
Different Lettuce
Radicchio
Our Pomegranate Tree
We'll have lots this winter.
Broccoli
Grape Tomatoes
Of course, our pumpkins are still growing everywhere in the garden.
I wanted to show you we added a pumpkin 
in a pot in our front yard.
I just added the little pumpkins for color 
until the pumpkin grows!

~Inspiration for a Fall Chair and Simple & Sweet Fridays #237~

You know when you see something you just have to have.
Well, Carly and I were driving down the street and saw this chair out in front of a house on the curb!!
I knew I had to have it.
So, I turned the car around and Carly helped me get it into the car.
I absolutely love it.
The detail to it and it was FREE!!!
I have always wanted to have something special in our entryway and this was the answer!!
I picked some pumpkins from our garden and displayed them in their new spot.
I had just gone to Michael's and purchased some wheat stalks.
They looked great in the French Wall Basket for the front door.
I stamped pages of a book for the new chair.
The chair fits in next to our hydrangea.
The hanging chandelier adds a classic look to the new chair.
I'm so lucky to have been at
 the right place 
at the right time!!
Stan is helping me add to the new area with some growing pumpkins.
I'll share a photo next time!
I wanted to share some photos of our lab, 
Maggie's first photo shoot.
Our daughter, Carly works at Westfield UTC Center and they asked Carly to bring in 
Maggie to play at their dog park. Of course, we said yes!!
She performed like a princess!!
Maggie is 12 1/2 years old now. We love everyday she's with us!
Kale salad with pomegranate seeds, quinoa, chicken, avocado, feta, lemon, olive oil and candied walnuts.
It was a beautiful Fall weekend in San Diego!
