~Simple Fall Decor~

Happy Wednesday all!
I'm so thankful for another gorgeous sunny and warm day.  It's 65 deg F and headed for 70 something!  You can't ask for much better weather at the end of September than that.

Our youngest daughter will arrive tomorrow, we are excited about her visit.  We are going to take her to visit the Black Hills in South Dakota.  My husband is in bad need of a vacation and so we will be gone for a few days, not many.  If I disappear again, you will know why.

I have decorated my favorite little spaces in the kitchen for Fall, so orange and red are now in evidence.



 I took a lot of "stuff" out of my kitchen, I can only take clutter for so long, then it has to go.  God made us all so different, didn't he.  Some love lots of beautiful decor everywhere, some love just a minimal amount.  I'm somewhere in between, I think. 
 

While I was gone earlier this month, my husband bought me a new toy, a MacBook Air! 



I am having fun getting used to it and I prepared this post on it today.  It also has a nice photo program where I did this.
It has so many wonderful features, I will get acquainted with them all eventually.

Have a lovely day my friends!

~Wishing You Much Love In Your Heart...Sweet Peace In Your Soul...And  Joy In Your Life...
Always~

Yay for your new Mac! I want one! I'm with you on the clutter thing. I seem to pile it up for a while and then look around and think, it's gotta go.
You are just the traveling queen! Have fun and enjoy your trip!

I know what you mean about too much stuff around. I am wanting less too. Hey, congrats on the mac! I think you will love it especially for the photos. Don't forget to let that battery run down, i.e. don't keep it plugged in all the time (Like I used to do). Guess it's better for the battery if you actually use the battery!!! Have a great time with your daughter.

Oh Cindy! I love everything. It just looks so natural, which is what I like. I can't stand clutter and I've got a LOT! Enjoy your daughters visit and your hubby taking some time, that's what it's all about! Enjoy!!

Julie Harward said...

That is so nice of him, I could use one of those too! And about the clutter, I just love to change things around, they look all new in another place. Have fun with your daughter! ;D

Jenifer said...

Great photos. I am in between, well, maybe closer to the minimal amounts on decor. I just cannot handle a lot of 'stuff.' Lol. How wonderful that your hubby got you a new computer! Fun!

I like your style - am always drawn to your kitchen and the little touches. I enjoy the small changes you make - and make it look so easy.

Enjoy your daughter's visit, Cindy! The Black Hills of South Dakota are beautiful. We drove around that area a couple summers ago. Needles Highway in that area is very scenic. Enjoy!

Good that you will be going on a little family break and I look forward to some photos. of your travels.
Nice for you to have a new 'toy'. Your husband is very thoughtful:) I like that last black and white picture. Looking forward to seeing some more interesting features on your posts.
Great that you have that pretty little nook in your kitchen where you can arrange your lovely displays. Autumn looks so welcoming. You will be happy to return to it.
