As much as I hate the fact that it's so close..................I can't keep pretending it's not happening - Fall will be here before I know it. ( Y.U.C.K. ) and I only say that because I really really dread the season after it.
I switched the dining area ( there won't be so many meals eaten out here in the near future sadly ) with the
seating area.................because although this looked nice on the deck - we can't actually sit on the furniture because leaves and twigs and branches and acorns keep landing on our heads whenever we try. This area is a little protected ( which is why the table goes here in the summer )
And though I still don't want Fall to arrive - I DO like how warm and cozy this area looks.
We sat out there last night - the first time we actually sat for a week !
And as it gets a little chillier at night - I'll bring out a throw for myself because I'm going to enjoy this for as long as it's physically possible................you may even catch me out there when snow starts falling lol.
I added as many candles as I could to give the illusion of warmth and I'm thinking of purchasing a
Chiminea so that we can actually HAVE warmth as well.................
I bought the outdoor carpet at Home Depot in June or July - for 39.00 and it just may come into the dining room for the winter months ( if we ever get the dining room finished of course )
These hold up remarkably well - the last one I had lasted 4 years - 2 of them where I kept it outside all winter long out of laziness )
AND it's reversible - with the other side having the pattern in the reverse colors
I never do much Fall decorating on the inside - perhaps a mantel or two..............some fall floral arrangements - a few throws here and there - but nothing more than that - so this is it folks - this is probably the only post you're going to see on Fall decor from this blog
That blank canvas on the back wall above the sofa ?
I have a plan for it - other than that I'm done !
I'll just sit here all cozy like - staring at the pool - and wishing summer lasted a month or two longer
And if you're still jumping in and out of yours...................
Have a heart - I really don't want to know ♥
Hoping you all have a wonderful summery weekend :)
