That’s right! I am declaring the season officially autumn, because it is my favorite season. Though I live in South Texas (Sun City), I am every bit an autumn lady!
I prefer the scents of pumpkin bread and apple pie to chicken on the grill and cold fruits.
I prefer shorter days with dark evenings and Spice candles glowing.
I prefer the deep hues of autumn golds, browns, and reds to pastels blues and pinks.
I prefer the chilly mornings with coffee on the patio to the toasty picnics on long summer days.
I just am an autumn girl!
That’s why I decorate my house for autumn on September 1. Yes, I know America is at the beach. I know the past week has bragged of daily temps from 100 -105. I know that snow cone sales are soaring. But, I also know, that I will have only two and one half months of my favorite home décor. I realize that others may scoff, but these decorations bring me such joy…I want to relish them every minute until Thanksgiving. Then my Christmas decorations will adorn my home as we prepare for a family wedding in December.
I found this CYNTHIA ROWLEY scarf in MARSHALLS this summer and fell in love with the colorful autumn display of my favorite colors! I will get a lot of wear out of this scarf. At the same time, I also purchased the brown knit jacket at Marshalls. Both were between $14 to $19 each. Our Marshalls has brimmed of Cynthia Rowley pieces in the last year and I rarely see something I do not like by this designer.

I apologize that my blogging has been sporadic in the last couple of weeks. They have been difficult ones between work and home. We suffered an unexpected death in our extended family, and we must travel to a funeral. So, I will not post again until later in the week. But, hopefully then, I will return on my regular schedule. Also, I neglected to follow through on my latest GIVEAWAY with CHLOE AND ISABEL JEWELRY. The winner of the fabulous necklace is JANE GREENMAN!! Congratulations, Jane! Thank you for reading my blog and entering the contest! I hope you send a picture modeling your necklace when it arrives!
REMEMBER: THURSDAY IS FASHION NIGHT OUT! Look for special sales and events in your area!
Have a wonderful Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday everyone…see you later in the week!!
