My Favorite Time of the Year!

I love this time of the year! It brings back fond memories of my childhood and when my children were little. This year we will enjoy being with some of our grandchildren in Bend, Oregon where it is snowing!
Now that will be fun for this California gal!

When is your favorite time of the year?

My front door wreath.

Little Samantha!

Fall is my favorite as well. I need to get my door dolled up and some pumpkins for the steps.. Just love the smell of the leaves and the cold mixed together!

Love your mantle and the adorable wreath with the wheelbarrow on it. Sooo cute. Your doggy is also very cute. When I lived in Michigan our winters were very long and Spring was my favorite season. Now that I live in the south, our summers are hot and I welcome the Fall as my favorite season.

I have determined to learn to love this time of year! And yesterday I went searching on your blog for your award winning pumpkin bread recipe! I'm going to make it today. I love summer best! I have a struggle with melancholy in the Fall! I'll let you know how the pumpkin bread turns out!

I'm so excited that I found your blog! I am very interested in joining Sister's On The Fly. My husband and I just purchased a vintage travel trailer and are busy getting it travel ready. Your camper is adorable. I look forward to following your blog.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I am with you. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year! I probably mentioned this before, but I like your way of decorating for Fall. You just have a way of knowing how to put things together and come out with beauty.

I need a wreath for my front door. I didn't think I could have one due to the storm door being so close to the wooden door. But someone mentioned just putting it on the storm door front. Duh. Felt stupid on that one. I'm loving this season. And spring is mighty special too! Your house always looks delightful, no matter what season it happens to be!
