so this is fall, really?

We are really going to have to use our imaginations on this one, trust me.  For what seems like the 100th day in a row we are in the triple digits.  So this is fall, really?


I feel like my fall decor is mocking me...


I don't dare force autumn onto the porch as I am sure my neighbors might have me committed.


The weatherman and his Doppler radar assures me the fall like temperatures are out there...somewhere.

Not here...but somewhere.


That's okay, I can be patient.  I mean it's not like I have a choice. So yes really, this is fall and boy, have I been waiting for you.


We are planning a quick trip to the mountains tomorrow where hopefully, we will feel a bit of a chill in the air.  What about you?  Anything special planned for this first fall weekend?

xo, Patty

  7. Hi Patty, Once our new grandson arrives, we are planning on heading to the mts to see the colors. Here in Colorado it is cooler and fall is in the air. I love your candle stand and your pitchers are beautiful as well; actually all your decorations are fantastic.
    Have fun in the mountains.
    hugs, Noreen

  10. Great Fall decor!

    It's been down-right chilly here at night.
    So much so, that I just might light a fire tonight, to take the chill off.

    Enjoy your trip, travel safely, and I hope you find that Fall weather that you're looking for :)

  11. Patty - I didn't think we'd ever get to fall either, but we have. The temps finally have lowered into the 90's and we think it's fall. LOL

  12. I love how you have done up your mantel, very sweet! You have the cutest pumpkins! We have been so lucky with temps in the 60's and today a bit of rain...finally! I have a feeling it is only temporary, we usually don't get cold in Chicago until November. I hope to get my fall decor up next week!

    XO,

  13. Bless your heart. I can hardly believe we seemed to have turned the corner here in my neck of the woods. Seems earlier than usual for us. I just hope it lasts.

  15. It has cooled off here in Ontario and YES we are feeling fall. this weekend, it's going to rain, rain, rain, so even though it is going to rain, I must go to the annual treasure hunt at Heritage Village in town. I may get wet, but I may find some treasures too ;-)

  19. Patty,
    Love your mantle decor! "Mr.Ed" and I purchased our first pumpkin for the front porch yesterday...and we, too, are preparing for our annual vacation!!! Warm today, but a crispness in our air as I watered plants this evening! Enjoy your trip to the mountains!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  20. You've got a good start on your decorating. It's still near 100 here too, and I just can't get in the fall mood. I got a few things out and bought pumpkins today. It's been hard to find pumpkins too. Enjoy your time in the mountains. We will just tough it out tomorrow in a hot sweaty gym watching volleyball and a noon soccor game. I love your little retro Halloween signs.

  21. We still have heat, but the nights have been cooling down. I do love that. It's too warm to add fall colors around the house. It just doesn't feel right and so I wait until mid October. Have fun up in the mountains. I think we're staying home this weekend and getting back to our deck project. I hope to start cutting out some fabric for another tote. I found some beautiful fabric at JoAnn's yesterday. It's already washed and dried, but not ironed....

  22. Your fall decorations look gorgeous! I hope the temperature drop a bit and feel just right soon!
    Wishing you a happy weekend, Patty!

  23. I like your fall decorations! For some reason, this year I'm having a hard time coming to terms with summer being over, so I'm not ready for anything fall related yet!

  24. It's been very cool in northern IL these past few days. Just got back from a couple of small towns in Wisconsin - my husband and I were up there for an overnight getaway. We'll be going to church in the morning, but I think I'll start decorating the porch for fall tomorrow afternoon. Need to go shopping for some pumpkins and gourds!

  25. I know how you feel. We're still experiencing temps in the mid 90s even though we had a touch of fall here and there over the last several weeks. But not enough to get excited about it being fall. I am SO ready for it to be here and, slowly but surely, I'm getting out my decorations. Maybe the fall-like weather will come if I do so, don't you think? Enjoy your time in the mountains...I'm envious ;)

  26. We got a hint of a freeze last night in Wisconsin....even furnace on to take the chill out of the house.
    I'm hoping for just a bit of Fall here....smile.
    Love your decor!

  27. Hi Patty! Your fall mantle is adorable! I love the vintage graphics! It has turned COLD here in the midwest! Nights dipping down to low 30's...brrrr! Skipped right from blazing hot to freezing....crazy!! I think after tonight we will go back to being more fall-like weather...which will be GOOD! I LOVE FALL and don't want to skip it! :) we are all going 2 the apple orchard after church today! A favorite family tradition!! :)

    XOXO Carolyn
