Almost Finished!

Could you believe Summer is almost finished?
September is just around the corner, and Fall projects and decorations are frantically swirling in my mind, preventing me from restful sleep!
Autumn is my absolute favorite of the Seasons, with its gorgeous color palette, bountiful Nature, pumpkins and gourds, scarecrows, cobs and that 'homecoming' feeling often associated with it...

I played with these end-of-summer hues and natural elements...

... isn't the blue-green of fading hydrangeas so matching mother-of-pearl iridescence?

Hope your summer days are shaping up nicely, and you are enjoying summer activities as soon as this lasts...

As for me, I'm already in a deep Fall mood! Pumpkin pie, anyone?


  1. Yes of course I would love to taste a piece of your pumkin pie.
    I love your summer playing.

  13. Hello Monica,
    thanks for your comment on my blog. I've visited yours too. I love your lay-out,the beautiful pictures, the vintage cards,the bears. Your dog is beautiful and looks so nice, she's a real model on those pictures.
    I'm sorry to read that your garden was destroyed, we had the same situation in Belgium, but the damage in our garden was not so bad.
    Your autumn-decoration is wonderful, I love the colours of hydrangeas.

    Best regards,

  14. Hi Monica, your pictures are lovely. Autumn is my favorite season also and I am just chomping at the bit to start decorating for it.

    If you find a rooster in the next couple of weeks, please join us. Would love to have you.

    Barb :-)
