Perfect Autumn Weather...




These children of mine have been outside more than in these past few days.  It's been cool and sunny...  perfect autumn weather, really.  I love that now that the weather is getting chillier, we're able to do some of the things that I like most:  throwing open windows to air everything out, dressing in knitted garments, baking and cooking, etc.  All that's missing is a fire in the grate, but it's really not cold enough for that yet.

We spent Saturday doing some creative endeavors.  We baked Alicia's Sour Cream Apple Pie, which has been just lovely the past few days and we put up our water color leaves in the playroom windows.  I think that these leaves turned out the best they ever have.  At the last minute, I remembered some leaf cookie cutters I had in the cupboard and we traced them right onto the water-colored coffee filters.  Sugar Plum and I sat outside on the porch wing cutting everything out while the boys played and then we helped to glue them onto the windows before lunch. 

I've been perusing The Vivienne Files the past few days to get a little plan together for my autumn wardrobe.  I have many of the the things that I need, but I'd like to freshen up my look a little bit.  I did order a skirt from LL Bean and I hope that it fits.  I like a lot of the clothes from mail order companies, but when I get them, they usually don't work.  I hope this one does!  I have wanted a cord skirt forever!

I love the yellow on your walls. Our first home was built in 1902..it was a lovely turn of the century home. My husband and I gutted it and remodeled the entire house. I painted my kitchen a bone white, with a sort of white on white scheme including cabinets and counter tops. Something was not right, so I painted the walls yellow! I LOVED that kitchen...that color made me so happy. I enjoyed seeing it on your walls...maybe I will be inspired and paint my kitchen yellow before winter.

I had a corduroy skirt that I loved, but sadly beware, those pinwales are a lint magnet.
