Love .... Weirs Fall Harvest

We are lucky enough to live close to Weirs Furniture and I was in the store a couple of days ago and just had to share pretty, Fall entry.

I plan on using a few of these ideas at home.  Such a warm and welcome feel.

Casual, Fall weekend wear

I just got the Lands End Canvas catalog and found a lot of great, casual looks for fall and very reasonably priced.  Don't you love the look of layering and scarves?

All of the pieces can be found online at Lands End Canvas, or by shopping their catalog.

Late bloomer

I am so surprised at all the blooms I'm still getting on my mandevilla.  I posted in June about this same plant and you can see now how crazy it got!  Lots of growth and fun to look at.

The pinks have faded some, but according to this article I might be able to save it this winter.  I'll let you know.  Still nice and sunny here!

DIY, paper lanterns

I came across a new blog and just had to share one of the projects that Aunt Peaches designed!

Made from a plain white paper lantern and muffin cups, this chic lamp was made.  You must go here to get more step by step instructions and let me know if it works out for you.

The lantern on the cover of this book was the inspiration for her project.  Impressive!!
