Some Changes in the Entry

Happy Fall Y'all! 

We're all very confused here in Michigan because September might be our warmest month all summer.  It's been gorgeous!  But the temperatures are getting cooler at night and I've seen a few trees starting to turn.

I've had this baker's rack on the deck all summer with my herb garden on it.  Here in the corner of our entry I've always had an antique phonograph.
When I went to find a picture, I realized I've never showed you guys this corner of the room. Fortunately I had a picture I had never edited because the phonograph isn't there anymore!

I've never felt good about having it here.  Too much traffic goes through this room and it was sitting right by an often-open patio door.

So I decided to put the baker's rack here and fill it with garden decor and my herb garden.
It's a perfect spot for my topiary.  The little sunflower picture was painted by our youngest son and is perfect for Fall.  I'm just in love with sunflowers lately!

It's also a great place to display some more Fall decor.  I love the 'garden look.'  And this is giving me that feel.
I am much more comfortable with this being here now and I don't have to fill my family room window with plants.
I keep changing the Fall decor all around the house.  To be honest, I've never decorated for Fall much until a couple of years ago.  Orange just didn't go well with the reds and yellows that I had on the main floor.
So I've had a lot of fun adding to my collection of stuff this year and deciding what I like.  I'll be back soon!

love and blessings~
