My Fall Kitchen

Hi All,
I am soooooo loving the chilly weather. Took a brisk walk this morning, which was a good start to the day. I am sharing my kitchen with Julia over at Hooked On Houses. This is such a great site dedicated to showing homes,  of all sorts. She is doing a post on her followers kitchens and the photos we send her. Go over and say hi to Julia and check out her great website, when you get a chance. Here are the pics I contributed...
 My kitchen.  I changed out the lower cabinets from the apple green to a milky white and added new knobs...
 Of course, I can't do a kitchen post without highlighting my Flair!
 The nook area...
 Granny's hoosier, which I have shown many times...
And the door leading to the basement, which I turned into a chalkboard.  P.S. My daughter just pointed out I let the other "P" out of Pumpkin! lol

Fall In The Backyard

Hi All,
What beautiful weather we have had. Change is coming tonight, tho! Brrrrrr.... I went out and snapped some pics of my back yard. The roses have come to life, but not for long. Also, my Aunt and Cousin came to visit. I have included a pic or two from out time together. :)

A Very Spooky Movie Star Monday!

Hi Peeps!
I wanted to do a Halloween post, so what better than to do one on "Bewitched." You all know by now how much I LOVE the shows from my childhood. Here are a few pics from the show...
 The show intro...
 Loved the first Darrin...
 What about Agnes Moorehead, as Samantha's Mom.  Wonderful!
 Boo!
 Love this one...
 And you ALL know how much I love Samantha's super cool stove, The Flair...
So much that I had to have one for myself.  I love it so...
Happy Halloween to all!!

A Home Tour

Hi All,
When time permits hubby and I have a glass of wine and some snacks with our good friends, Jim and Cindy. My hubby and Jim were classmates and Cindy and I were classmates. We go back and forth between each of our houses. We have a good time and lots of laughs. Cindy was nice enough to let me give you a little home tour of her house.  They did most of the interior finish work themselves!
 Here are the hosts and hubby in the cute farmhouse kitchen...
 The Greatroom
 The Master bedroom.  Jim built all of the furniture...
 Master bath...
 One of their son's bedroom.  He is all grown, but still has his own room to come home to :)
 Hall bath...
 Guest room...
 The loft...
Love the view into the greatroom from the loft...
Hope you enjoyed the tour!!!

Fall at the Cape house 2012

Hi All,
The weather is changing again.  It is suppose to get cooler. Fine by me :) I love cool, Fall weather. I went outside to snap some pictures, before it rains. Here is a little outdoor tour around my house.
 The fall goodies on the porch...
 Gotta beware of the spooky graveyard!
 Happy Fall Y'all!
 Ghosts and goblins...
 I love the yellow mums peeking through the fence...
 Old fence section in the ivy...
 I so love decorating my new porch...
Hope you are all having a wonderful Fall!

Fall in Indiana

Hi All,
It is really a warm, fall day in Illinois. I am prefering the snuggly, chilly kind of fall day, tho. I need not worry, it will be back soon :) I wanted to share some of the sights I see on my trips over to visit my daughter in southern Indiana. I am soooooo happy she is closer to home. We have lots of fun together...
 I will just let you enjoy the beautiful drive I take...



 We found our way to the Oliver winery...
 Loved sitting outside on the crisp fall day...
 Momma in front of the winery...
Just wanted to share what I whipped up for dinner.  Easy peasey, pumpkin soup and corn muffins. Yum!

Chalkboard!

Hi All,
I actually made something, besides florals or food! I decided to do a chalkboard in the kitchen. I think it turned out pretty good :)  I painted the door going into the basement from the kitchen...
 Blogger is giving me fits, so the pics aren't where they should be or the text, ugh!  Anyway, I went to Pinterest to get the inspiration for the writing and design.  I will love having all this space for holiday sayings!
