Monday greetings...





Thank you for your thoughtfulness and concern the past few days. I am feeling much better, taking better care of myself and prioritizing my life yet again. The weather here the past few days has been glorious!! Very cool mornings and bright blue skies, giving way to warm sunshine in the afternoons with some ocean breezes! Even though the Autumn season doesn't officially begin until September 23rd, I have already started adding little Fall hued vignettes throughout the house. Nothing on a grand scale, just little nuances here and there.




I started off with the family room, since that is the room we gather in. The mantle was first, with my new candle holders, clock, topiary, and Autumn florals. Adding a pair of antiqued Turtledoves, I am very pleased with the result!




Monday morning brought prayer at the church and then to the mall to exchange a a couple of T-shirts i purchased in a smaller size.....yippee!!!




Started on the home blessing this afternoon, and generally tidying up the house. Felt good to get back to my routines once again.




As I continue to add Fall touches to my home, indoors and out, I will take photos and post them for you to see. I so enjoy taking a peek into your homes and seeing all your creative touches.




We have a new addition to our family too...a new dog!! She is an adorable cocker spaniel puppy about 12 weeks, and her name is Loralie....my daughter named her as this is her dog!!




It has been a very productive and busy day, right now I'm off the get the brownies out of the oven and finish cleaning up the kitchen.




I wish you a peaceful evening with your loved ones..Blessings always.

Oh, a cocker spaniel puppy! How wonderful...I'm glad for you. My hubby was bitten by this breed when a boy and you can guess the result! I think they are the sweetest things. Someday, maybe, I'll have one or maybe not...smile. Your welcome to Autumn sounds very special and homey and I know it is. We too are having crisp mornings with wonderful sunshine, but it does show me that the windows are calling for help....to get clean. grin...so much to do. Its been a sweet visit here to your Peaceful Corner Mindy...thank you...*hugs*

I love the Fall...and that warm cozy feeling it brings. Your decor sounds wonderful and I suppose after much procrastination, I think you've given me that push to run up into the attic and take out my box of Fall decorations.
Thank you for the inspiration :)
Oh, and your puppy sounds delightful!
