Well...September is only a few days away.....My favorite month. Ok...it's my birthday month and I have such wonderful memories of going back to school in September AND where I grew up in the San Francsco Bay Area, September was often our warmest and nicest weather. So there you go. I love September...I love fall...I love Halloween...Thanksgiving and sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie...all of it!
I'm realizing today that I've been kinda chatty this month. I have done more posts this month than any month since I started this blog. I guess I had a lot to say. Imagine how much I will have to say in the winter months when I'm not in the garden a lot of the time...OH BOY!
Well...I guess I'm just kind of wishing I would pick up a few more followers to my blog...a few more comments....that would be wonderful. So...if you're out there and on the fence about follwing me...take the plumge! I'd love to have you here. I have found this blogging experience to be very therapeutic...kind of like scrapbooking. We take the time to affirm the positive things in our life. YES, there are a lot of positive things. I mean, I have my share of ups and downs, BELIEVE ME...but I prefer to spend more time focusing on the good and positive. So here I am...living what I preach...the glass is half full...ALWAYS.
Enough of all that stuff....I decided it was time to bring some fall into my china cabinet ...what do you think? I was feeling the browns and off-whites. I'm thinking I should fill the bins on top with walnuts in the shell. I don't like walnuts too much, but think the color and texture of those cute shells would look good. Where can I find those? Diane...aren't there walnut orchards there in the central valley?
I was feeling a little "branchy" here... Picked up these branches at my favorite little decor store here in Walla Walla --Real Deals? Have you heard of them? Incredible values on fun home decor stuff....total "look for less" stuff. I also got the garden sign, little clock, calendar block and canisters there...incredible values. You gotta come to Walla Walla and visit Real Deals...really! Diane..I know you will be here soon for shopping again and I can't wait! Mom...I'm hoping you will just show up here at the cottage in September (maybe for my birthday?) and we can go to Real Deals together...whatdayathink? : )
Let fall begin....let the leaves start turning....let's wear sweatshirts and coats...I think I'm ready.
