That’s right!  I am declaring  the season officially autumn, because it is
my favorite season.  Though I live in
South Texas (Sun City), I am every bit an autumn lady!
I prefer the scents of pumpkin
bread and apple pie to chicken on the grill and cold fruits.
I prefer shorter days with dark
evenings and Spice candles glowing.
I prefer the deep hues of autumn
golds, browns, and reds to pastels blues and pinks.
I prefer the chilly mornings with
coffee on the patio to the toasty picnics on long summer days.
I just am an autumn girl!
That’s why I decorate my house for
autumn on September 1.  Yes, I know
America is at the beach.  I know the past
week has bragged of daily temps from 100 -105. 
I know that snow cone sales are soaring. But, I also know, that I will have only two
and one half months of my favorite home décor. I realize that others may scoff,
but these decorations bring me such joy…I want to relish them every minute
until Thanksgiving. Then my Christmas decorations will adorn my home as we
prepare for a family wedding in December.
I found this CYNTHIA ROWLEY scarf
in MARSHALLS this summer and fell in love with the colorful autumn
display of my favorite colors!  I will get a lot of wear out of
this scarf.  At the same time, I also
purchased the brown knit jacket at Marshalls. 
Both were between $14 to $19 each. 
Our Marshalls has brimmed of Cynthia Rowley pieces in the last year and I
rarely see something I do not like by this designer.
Yes, that is Madeleine’s tail sticking into the picture!
Bracelet and Skirt from Lane Bryant last Fall Season!
I apologize that my blogging has
been sporadic in the last couple of weeks. 
They have been difficult ones between work and home.  We suffered an unexpected death in our
extended family, and we must travel to a funeral.  So, I will not post again until later in the
week.  But, hopefully then, I will return
on my regular schedule.   Also, I
neglected to follow through on my latest GIVEAWAY with CHLOE AND ISABEL JEWELRY.  The winner of the fabulous
necklace is JANE GREENMAN!! 
Congratulations, Jane! Thank you for reading my blog and entering the contest!  I hope you
send a picture modeling your necklace when it arrives!
