Stop sipping and start clicking!

Good morning friends...
I know I haven't been around much lately but I've been busy busy with family life all good stuff that I wouldn't want to miss for the world...so blogging is taking a back seat for now...I know you all get that!
I also have some projects that I've been working on in our master bedroom.
~~~
This morning while I was in the kitchen drinking my MUCH NEEDED morning coffee...I looked through the rooms and the sun was shining in my living room so beautifully I ran for my camera and stopped sipping and started clicking away!


I snipped a few of the plumes from my cornstalks outside for this pretty little vase on my table.

Our trees are losing most of there leaves but they still look so colorful in these shots!
See the little peek of the new cushion my friend Linda made for me.
I sent her the cushion that came with the chair along with the fabric I bought from Country Curtains...and she worked her magic!
She does such beautiful work! 
She made a few more things for me I just have to get around to taking the pictures.
*Linda if your reading this I think I might be in touch with you for some matching pillows;-) *
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you all have a
 SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN!!

Martina, I totally get it! Life sweeps us away, and that's a good thing most of the time. Enjoy the moment!
Glad you started snapping. I do that too! In fact, this morning while out on errands, I found myself stopping to snap photos of beautiful flowers and delightfully styled porches ready to celebrate fall.
Enjoy your time, dear friend…….Sarah

Martina- Family first! That really should be the mantra of every blogger. Glad you are spending those precious times with family.

LOVE the light that is shining into your living room. It looks gorgeous- warm and homey. I love the soft colors in there.

Happy Thursday to you- xo Diana

I always think the best shots of our homes are the unexpected ones like these. Have a great rest of the week.

Great snaps and I love the colors of the leaves and light. Your cushion is a winner too!

Your photos are gorgeous! You never have to apologize for going about your life. Sometimes we can let blogging get in the way of the important things in life. I enjoy your blog so much and get so much inspiration.

Your home looks great! Isn't it amazing how something as simple as sunshine can make us take a second look at the simple things that surround us everyday...Happy Halloween!

That's my motto! Family comes first! Post when you can. Happy Halloween!

We are kindred spirits. That fabric is the same one in my daughter's bedroom. Her roman shades are made of it! Love the way the light looks. Pretty!

Everything about your house is so pretty. I love your new little chair cushion. It's the perfect french country touch for your house.

I love that last shot looking into your living room and through the window! You have a beautiful view right now of the spectacular colors.
Projects always seem to take longer than planned.

Everything looks so pretty with the sun streaming in. I like the plumes you brought in from your cornstalks. That was a good idea. I kind of wish I had bought some of those this year.

Wow! That is beautiful, autumn light! Love the view out the door. It's still in the 90s here, but maybe we will get some 70s or 80s in a few days.

I know the feeling. I just put a few items out this morning. Happy Halloween!
