It's "Falling"!

My granddaughter was excited to make this Fall craft
 for Mommy and Daddy!

Getting started cleaning up the back porch...
Nothing like inviting company for a cookout to get you  motivated! This chick brooder was one of the first things to go!(They'll have to find somewhere else to grow up, because this is slated to become my "beach-themed people room", lol!) I'll plan to share pictures as things progress. We are still re-doing my daughter's room. 

Here are updated pictures of the back screenporch--
minus the chick brooder and gardening paraphernalia! Still
a way to go, but certainly a step in the right direction. This is as far as I got before company came over the other night!

This antique sink and cabinet came with the house when we bought it. I plan to restore it. It would be great to get it functioning
again out there, but I'm not sure how feasible that is.
The greenhouse window is in the dining room, and is rather odd. I cover it with drapery, and store books and things in it.
It is an older home that has been added onto over the years, and the rooms have had different assignments.
A "goodie bag" and other surprises for my daughter from our travel agent and good friend, Jan Sleeper, of 3D Travel
 in celebration of our daughter's first trip to Disney World!...Authentic sequined Minnie ears
were inside the bag  " ) Needless to say, she's SO excited!

(Tell her Beauty for Living sent you ; )
With the hint of Fall in the air, I get a hankerin' for all kinds of fresh-baked goodies!
HAD to make these cinnamon/caramel-frosted biscuits the other morning--YUM!

My husband and son felled some trees in the front recently.
They worked in some terrible heat, but we're all looking
forward to the revitalization that cooler Fall weather brings!
Here's hoping that you and yours have a safe and enjoyable Fall season...Please do share some of the Fall traditions and seasonal  activities that you/your family enjoy---I know there are some from Germany, France, India,  and even Alaska stopping by to visit, among others. I'd love to hear from you all!...
Until then...look for the beauty that is around you, and share it with others " )
