Decorating for Fall Season: Sofa Gets an Update

When it comes to decorating your living space for fall you do not have to go nuts, don't have to spend a lot of money. You can shop online at and watch for the sales then buy four throw pillows in a variety of shapes and colors.
I have bought several pillows on sale at zazzle and my husband loves them. So this year I am shopping at zazzle for my fall decoration and for sofa throw pillow and blanket. Know that when the season changes and the nights get cold my husband and I are real comfortable on the sofa thanks to the pillows and light weight sofa throw. On chilly nights we like a fleece blanket because the texture provides warmth and the feel is oh so cozy.
If you do plan to shop at zazzle for your fall home decoration I would recommend that you take advantage of the Zazzleblack shipping perk. You get free standard shipping for a year for $9.95. Unlimited shipping on all orders for products plus there is a 30 day free trail. Let me tell you it is worth it to get the zazzle black because shipping is expensive otherwise.

Fall Season Came Early This Year

I had a feeling that our fall season would come early this year because our August weather was 20 degrees cooler than normal. In fact there were a few nights in August that were cold. When the temperature dipped into the low 50's in August it felt more like early fall. Then came September and the weather was cooler than usual. Fall has come very early this year and with the season change there is more work to do and less time to enjoy my yard and garden.
Today I spent most of the day outdoors doing what I can to manicure the yard and gardens before this weeks cold weather forecast. I made a point to remove the fallen leaves from my irises and to cut back annual plants that have started to die.

The four O clock flowers have gone to seed and gathered the seeds for winter storage. 

 Now that the fall season is here I am thinking more about decorating my porch and updating the planters with hardy flowers like pansies and kale. I think tomorrow I will go to the pumpkin patch and see about buying a few nicely shaped pumpkin. I will also head over to Lowes garden center and buy a few potted Chrysanthemums for a lawn decorations.

My Likes: Zazzle Halloween Looks for Baby Girl

Halloween is a special time for babies especially if it is their first. Granted they are too little to go tick or treating but that does not mean that they cannot look the part. I always love it when the little ones arrive at my door in their stroller. Parents dress them in Halloween t-shirts and the girls in tutus. They are so precious. So today I am shopping for Halloween for babies because this year I have an adorable niece to buy for.

I am not someone who drives all over town for shopping, I think the malls are a waste of time and energy.  When I shop it is online and my first stop was Amazon because they have really cute outfits for babies and toddlers. I saw a few outfits for baby girls by Calvin Klein that I liked and a Steve Madden fleece hoodie but they were all baby gifts that would be perfect for Christmas. They were not what I was looking for so I headed over to

A few of my friends have adorable kids shops at zazzle and I really love the products that they create for baby girls and boys. They tell me that one crawler, bib or tee takes them several hours to create. I do appreciate the time and effort that they put into their baby clothes because they are adorable and unique.

Here are a few of my favorite Halloween tees, bodysuits and accessorizes for baby girl.  I think these Halloween looks are too cute.  Do you agree?

Season Change: Autumn Nights are Cooler

When I look out my window I can see that the leaves are falling  from the  oak trees and accumulating on the lawn. Plus the sweet autumn clematis  and chrysanthemums are in full bloom.  Nature has a way of telling us when the summer is ending.  Yes the season is changing, fall flowers are blooming and cooler temperature is in the forecast.

Chrysanthemums in bloom, they are Falls flower
Today I turned off our air-conditioner and opened up the windows.  The high was 72 degrees.  Airing out my house sure was nice however I did close the window about ten this evening because the breeze felt cold.

Presently the thermostat outdoors says it is 57 degrees and the low tonight will be 48.    That is  too cold for this time of the year and I need to get ready for a cooler than usual autumn this year. 

Tomorrow I will be busy with indoor activities.  I want to pack up my summer pastel clothing because the season has changed.  It is time to get out the darker colored tee's, jeans, cords, light flannel shirts and find suitable shoes.

Here is a transitional tee that is perfect for the autumn season.

There will still be some days that are hot so a few short sleeve tees and capri pants will be good on those days but shorts and pastel floral tops are last season and they will be packed  tomorrow in under the bed storage containers.  Then I will go up to the attic to look for the alternative down comforter for our bed because it will keep us warm when autumn nights are cool.  

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day packing up summer clothes and getting ready for the autumn season.
