Potting Shed Tablescape

We are having some cooler weather and it sure makes me want to be
outside again.  I have been walking around the yard deciding what area
needs some loving first.  I love being outdoors and can hardly wait to start
wearing my garden clogs and getting busy once again.  I also love to 
decorate in a garden theme.  So here is an ancient and chippy wicker table
in my potting shed and it was just waiting for me to decorate it.

My dear friend Sharon sent me these adorable little cups, saucers and spoons
with a bee theme.  So sweet, I just love them to pieces!

The bee skep in the foreground is something I purchased up at 
Round Top last spring.  I am heading up there again and I am so 
excited about going.  It never gets old for me.  I will be taking lots
of photos, so I will be creating a travel log for those of you who
are not lucky enough to get there.

Bentley is King of the Cottage

I just knew it was only a matter of time before Bentley claimed the
granny square blanket for his own ;-)

My First Completed Granny Square Blanket

I am feeling really proud of myself.  I wanted to learn to make granny squares
for the longest time and I finally completed my first granny square blanket.
It's just perfect for curling up with a cup of tea and a book.

It was so much fun to make, and it's convenient also because you can
just make squares over time and save them up and stitch them together.

Of course, I won't be at all surprised if Bentley decides to claim it
for his own ;-)

My Annual Fall Cold

For as long as I can remember,  I have managed to catch a cold sometime
during the last week of September.  I don't know why.  It isn't the cold 
and or flu season, but for me it seems to be.  It's as though the calendar 
dictates my health.  The weather has not changed here.  It's still hot and
humid, but here I am feeling achy and tired and wanting to stay in bed.

I had the the tell tale signs of this cold yesterday.  It started with a 
back ache.  Nothing severe, just annoying.

Then this morning the back ache went away and the headache and 
scratchy throat started.  This is very disappointing.  There are lots of
other things I want to be doing other than being curled up with a 
quilt and a cup of tea.  

I wonder if I went down to Australia at this time of the year if I 
would still get sick?  It's spring there.  Maybe I could trick my 
internal calendar ;-)

My Blast from the Past Fall Decorating Ideas

An advantage of blogging is that one can browse through seasonal
decorating ideas from the past.  I have albums full of pics from past
posts, some of which I have forgotten all about.  Since I am now in 
full fledged fall decorating mode, maybe you would like to browse 
through some of these old photos with me.

I hope this gives y'all some inspiration!  Have a wonderful first 
Fall weekend and go forth a decorate.

Big Texas Hugs,
