Tuesday Tidbits #144 It Has Begun!

🍁 Fall Touches 🍁

It’s happening… I am adding a few fall touches around the LakeHouse. Although… the Air Conditioning has kicked back on. Welcome to our little Country Cottage!

Our Little Country Kitchen Cottage. Sweet Man came home with the runner… perfect for Fall!

Our LakeHouse is my Childhood Home… so there are many memories around this table. My Mom showed me how to make homemade noodles at this table. When my boys were little… my Mom made root beer floats and had them sit right here at that table. Oh, and when I came home from school… many times Mom’s homemade bread was sitting on this table. She had a dish of butter and we would have a slice together, still warm from the oven! Well, maybe we had more then one slice!

The Rooster Dishes are from my sister.

Of course Mums were purchased and added outside. But do you see the wood neatly stacked? Sweet Man split the wood and I stacked! We are ready for many backyard fires and more s’mores! (Don’t you worry… there’s more wood neatly stacked around the corner!)

How about you …are you adding any Fall touches to your home?

Fall touches can pretty much pop up out of no where with me.

Fall Fun added to indoor plantings.

And sometimes our decor pretty much matches traditional fall colors.

🍁 Fall Feels? 🍁

The trees are slowly showing their colors at the lake.
Fall Clematis!
Wild Aster
Soybean Fields are turning golden!

Fall Feels For Sure! How about in your neck of the woods?

Fall Favorites

All we need now are Fall Favorites… such as apple cider, apple pie, pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin muffins, acorn squash, and how about pumpkin martinis?

Easy to make since Pumpkin Martini Mix comes in a bottle now. Just add whipped cream!

A Fall Appetizer

Here is something for you to share at your next gathering of friends.

  1. Nancy, your autumn has definitely begun. I love seeing the golden soybean fields, your stacked wood, and the lovely table with so many memories attached.

    Sitting by an outdoor fire with s’mores is a wonderful way to start the season. Your photos are beautiful, as always. Happy Autumn sweet friend 🍂🧡🥰

  2. Well you have initiated some melancholic thoughts in my brain this morning. I recall sitting around that table with our sweet domesticated mom…She was truly one of the first home economists ever. Everything looks so « fallish « and beautiful. But I don’t expect anything less from you my sweet sister. XOXO miss you terribly.

  3. Thanks for bringing a little fall into my morning. I love all your fall decorations. Too early for fall here. The mornings are cooler and the temperatures are dropping slightly. Everything is still green here.

  4. I don’t think I knew this was your childhood home. That makes it all the more special and I love the fall touches you added. I put up a few during my last visit. We will close in early October this year as we have a wedding later in the month when we would usually be there. Rick will go later to take care of the water and all. Somehow, I don’t trust him to take down my pumpkins and put the other things back, so I’ll probably tuck them away when I leave and if I DO get back, just enjoy the color all around us! Your home is just lovely — so warm and welcoming. I love it.

  5. Lovely as usual, Nancy. Things are heating up down here, so much so, I’ve already started watering my plants twice a week. I’ll be tending them every second day soon. Happy Autumn to you and your Sweet Man. I guess you’ll be back in Arizona soon?

  6. Your touches of Fall look wonderful Nancy! It’s still hot here too so I’m holding off on major pumpkin buying for a few weeks, and you’ve got me wanting some colorful mums. I love pumpkin martinis, yum, and your apple sunflower dip is so cute and sounds amazing! Enjoy~

  7. Lovely fall accents. It’s almost cool enough to return to the west. We finally are cooling off and experiencing early fall at 8800 ft. Love chilling down after months of 100+.

  8. What a fun fall post! You are so creative and your Sweet Man is so thoughtful. My favorite part of your post today is your memories. The table is only a “thing,” but it certainly brings back so many wonderful times and emotions for you. Thanks for sharing them.

    1. What lovely words you left me… thank you! So many wonderful memories! And many happened right here in the kitchen.

      Thank you for the love!

    2. I’m so glad you enjoyed the wonderful memories that are still with us here at the house. And better yet we are making more memories!
      Thank you always for your lovely words.
      Have a wonderful week ahead.

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
