On my early morning drive to work last week I noticed the
trees were beginning to show signs of fall.
The autumn light and cooler days feel wonderful!
Even though there are clouds in this photo we still haven't had a drop of rain
in a record number of days now.
I know it is coming though, so in the meantime I have been enjoying the sunny, 70 degree
This is a little side deck on our house where I like to do some crocheting or reading.
That window is the window to my little art room, so I like to think of this area outside as
an extension of my space, especially on nice days like this.
Here is a pair of fingerless gloves I crocheted using my favorite NFL team's
accent color. Can you guess who that might be? LOL
So, this is my room, the other side of that window.
I did a little bit of organizing and nesting in here the last couple of days.
It was almost like I wanted to get it ready and cozy for the rainy winter season.
I also wanted to show you how I'm using vintage
crochet and tatting pieces
and an old crocheted top (I used to wear in my skinny, younger days)
to decorate my window and lamp.
I love the way the light looked...especially with the pink in the sky that evening.
Also, a neat reflection of my green neon cactus on the other side of the room.
This is the window on the other side of the room.
I remembered I had big piece of lace ( I was thinking it was a
table cloth) that I bought at the second hand store for $2.99 to
use in different sewing and collage projects.
When I got it out I realized it was a curtain panel...perfect!
Well, except for the big piece I cut out of it for another project a while back. LOL!
But, as you can see, with the way I am using it, it really isn't noticeable, and
you can't beat the price!
I also kind of like the contrast of the vintage lacy look with the neon cactus.
The weather forecast says we're in for another week of clear, sunny days.
Long time residents here keep telling us this is NOT the usual weather for this time of year.
In fact, some of our new friends tell us we must have brought this dry weather
with us when we moved from Las Vegas. :-)
Hope you are enjoying the feeling and sights of autumn where you are.
