Life is Full

I know I have been a bad blogger lately :( Thanks for checking up on me, Rechelle! Life has been nothing short of busy. I am also blogging over at my other blog. I tend to blog there more frequently. Nothing is really happening with the cottage. We have our reasons for waiting and holding off on the remodel but I am not going to bore you with them.

Here are a couple of things that I have been up to, besides working and being a mother and wife.

I love decorating for fall. This is my first year getting to decorate outside. So fun!

Some of our outdoor fall decorations. My wonderful husband and a friend went and got me about 10 cornstalks from the field. I put some of them in that cream container in the corner. It "completes" it! :o)

Love this iron basket that I got at a local greenhouse. Some of those pumpkins and gourds were dipped in wax and are supposed to last a really long time. We will see.

My Grandmother gave me this idea. Put votive candles in small glasses. It looks so pretty when the lights are off. I tried to get a decent picture.

I hope you are all enjoying your fall as much as us.
Til next time!

hey! Good to "see" you! The decor looks great and is that a vintage orange juicer I see on that top shelf? I love those! They remind me of Saturday mornings and my mom would make fresh squeezed juice for us.
