feeling like fall

2011 10 10_0545
An old pallet with a wreath, propped into a rusty wagon and filled with garden castoffs (plus a few fake pumpkins) make the front entry say fall.  This is a use what you have kind of thing, the wreath I threw together last year, the pallets were leftovers from another project, and the wagon has been sitting around here forever.  It took five minutes to throw it all together.  I call that lovely.

I like how it turned out.
I also like that the weather is wet and blustery, with breaks in the clouds every now and then.

I like that I found a recipe for a homemade pumpkin spice latte and coconut whipped cream, all dairy free for those of us who are dairy challenged.  It’s good, real good.

I love this time of year.  I love pumpkin products and I love soup and baking, and all those things marry wonderfully in October.  And in the midst of a day that didn’t really go like I had intended I’m finding a moment to be grateful, it’s the day I’ve been given and that makes it a gift.  I’m choosing to be content with that, with a quiet day at home and some pumpkin bread in the oven. 


  1. I love the way your arrangement turned out. I'm glad you were able to soak in the goodness of the day despite it not going as planned.

  2. Great job decorating, thank you for the dairy-free delicious link, and for confirming the contentedness craze God's teaching me lately. We are rich.


I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
