Autumn Blessings.....

Dearest Readers,

What a glorious Autumn (almost) day here on Honey Hill Farm!  I have delighted in this day, its gentle rhythms soothing my soul.  A little laundry, time in the garden gathering the harvest, some sewing on my winter curtains ( I'll post that later) and, of course, time spent here with you dear friends.....

Earlier, I put up a few Autumn decorations...I am not nearly finished as I will be adding cornstalks and pumpkins from my garden as soon as they are ready.  But I just couldn't help take a look around, won't you?

This adorable flag is one of my favorites! 

It is easy to add a bit of Autumn almost anywhere...

Even a favorite chair sports a touch of Autumn!

I saw the idea for the "bunting" while watching easy and inexpensively you can celebrate.  This is 4 yards of fabric, just sewing!  You can wash it at the end of the season and pack it away for next year.


Instead of putting my porch cushions away for the season, I cover them with vinyl tablecloths.   The cushions stay dry and I can change them for each season or holiday.  I found the cute "harvest" tablecloth for $4.00 at the discount store. Besides, we have so many beautiful sunny days here in Colorado, you might find yourself sitting out on the porch in the middle of January, just soaking up a glorious afternoon!

I hope you are having a blessed day and enjoying all the beauty that this season has to offer!

Yours ever so kindredly,


P.S. Thank you for all the kind comments about my youngest heading off to college.  You are all so dear, you bless me with your friendship.

Your home is beautiful--as always. Autumn is my favorite time of year. Wish we could visit on your lovely porch with some warm cider. :-)

I love decorating for fall!! I cover my cushions with a tablecloth too. Very cheap and you can change with the seasons, GREAT! I am motivated to get my fall out now. You did a great job.
