It Is Fall and I Love It!

I see the beauties of Fall
all around. .
I can even see Fall in
the color of the blue sky
I see it in the trees
The flowers
I fields of pumpkins
And all that is being harvested
I feel it in the air and I hear it!
Ya, I hear it.
At Football games!
My favorite sport of all
Bring it on
FootballAnd I love it!
It is my favorite time of year
I even see Fall in my home decor. . . .
I like to decorate for the Fall season
This is just a sampling of the things I have sitting
in little vignettes.

My door will WELCOME you as you
enter my
Fall colored home

Mmmmm! I love this time of year
I wish it could stay this way
But, I have to admit I do like the changing of
The Seasons

I love my Great-Aunt Colleen
My Mother is her niece!
They were the same age!
She and my Mom were very close
They were best friends.
It was hard for my Aunt Colleen
to lose my Mom.
She and I have been very close.
I guess I just kind of filled in for my Mom.
She is a very creative woman.
And has taught me a lot.
I'm glad I carry some of the same creative genes that she does.
(funny how families are like that)
I am thankful Pickering is part of my heritage!
