♥ A Cozy Autumn Day ♥

What a cozy fall autumn morning it was yesterday and on the first day of October too!

I love Luke's reflection in the window.  He's eating his muffin for breakfast.  :)

I love having lamplight in the mornings, especially on days like this. It’s one of the first things I do in the morning….go around turning on the lamps.

We enjoyed left-over pumpkin muffins for breakfast too. Another wonderful thing for a cozy fall morning!

And to top it off, I had these wonderful fall goodies from Holly (of Holly's Hobbies and Darbee's Days) to decorate with. I was the lucky winner of her fall giveaway and these goodies arrived the end of last week. Aren’t they great?  I just love everything, especially those pumpkins!!  Thank you so much, Holly!  :)

My mama kept admiring the angel and she collects them, so I ended up giving it to her!

Yesterday was just the perfect day to do a little more fall decorating with these wonderful goodies! They added more touches of fall throughout my home……

The wax tarts were added here. 

I love those pumpkins here.

I added the wax bowl fillers from Carol in the little bowl with some of the primitive hay from Holly.

I added some of the hay from Holly in this bowl that is usually the centerpiece on the dining room table.  At this particular time the dining room table has computer equipment on it.  :)
Can you see the rusty star garland?  I added it to the leaf garland on the mantle.
I even used the grassy stuff included with the wax tarts under the pumpkin on the scales. 

In addition to that, I won yet another giveaway....Carol (of Firecracker Kid).  I entered it with the intention of passing along those candle sconces to my mom if I won because I knew she would love them. And I won! So as soon as I took this picture, I took them over to mama. :)  Thank you, Carol!  Since she added a couple extra things, I added those to my fall decor!

The little mouse from Carol landed here. And the fall bowl fillers were added to the little bowl (in one of the pictures above) along with some of the “primitive hay” from Holly.

The little mouse snuck up here on Mr. Scarecrow's lap:

Can you see him?

If it keeps up like this, it will soon be sweater and boot weather!

 Oh, and I forgot…..not sure if I’ll keep up with it every day, but Sandra is doing a 31 days of fall challenge. It’s all about posting a picture that says “fall” every day. Actually everything on my post today says fall, but I’m leaving you with one that Joy actually took yesterday. I loved it and asked her if I could share and she graciously agreed. She is really into photography.

Happy Autumn!  :)

♥ Tammy ♥

Love all your fall winnings Tammy. You did a wonderful job adding them in with your fall decorations. I too love lamps and candles. Mr. P. tells everyone he has to start 15 minutes early getting ready for bed just to turn all of them off. You are too sweet sharing your goodies with your Mom. Love Joy's fall photo. Have a blessed week.

Morning Tammy!
What a sweet daughter you are to give up your winnings to your Mom!!

I love those little pumpkins and say every year I will make some - hasn't happened yet!lol I plan on making some salt dough bowl fillers today (attempting I should say) since it is a rainy day I figured I would play.

I love the star garland on your mantel - my favorite country store has them so I've seen them close up in person - nice!!

Send Joy over here - I could definitely use her photo skills - that picture definitely says fall

Have a fun day - Jeannette

Well, it all looks so warm and cozy, as well as inviting. Holly is such a sweet person. I have had the pleasure of meeting her, Darbee, and her Mom more than once. I am so looking forward to it again. I love window shots and Lukes reflection is priceless. Thanks again for a wonderful visit.

Oh I am so very jealous. I can't wait for rain and cooler weather. We are still in this hot summer that never ends. Over 100 yesterday and today. They say it will cool some starting tomorrow. Sure hope so.
