Early Autumn Outdoors

When I think of Autumn decorating

hydrangeas in olive bucket patio Autumn

I think of things like chunky pumpkins
mixed with gathered bits from nature.
Like freshly dried green and gold hydrangeas

Weekend view~ Pumpkins & Autumn favorites

I have been gathering acorns and bits of moss 
and baskets of big pinecones 
and saving them all for Autumn stylings.


But something is missing.
Something that says falling leaves,
 brisk morning walks in fresh Fall air
 chunky sweaters and tall boots with jeans
and maybe even cups of cocoa on the patio...

Something like 
pumpkins.

Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!

I hope your week has been going well! Can you believe it already the middle of September?! I am knee deep in Christmas photography and design right now- but am trying to get some Autumn on at the same time ( yes, I feel a bit design chaotic) and will be sharing soon.
Here's what I shared this week~ 


The latest crush of mine~ Rose Gold-  I am obsessed and I'm okay with that.

Entertaining~ Whole wheat rustic pear tart

Freshly picked pears tossed with cinnamon 
and a little sprinkle of sweetness


and then baked in a crusty whole wheat pastry dough?

 Yes, please.

Crushing on~ Rose Gold

I have been having a little bit of a love affair recently.


I was minding my own business when we met randomly
in the kitchen section.
