Hey my friends!
I hope you are enjoying some cooler fall weather where ever you are!
Of course, here in Louisiana, fall will last for about two weeks and won’t even arrive until late November… okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a wee bit.
I’m always so amazed this time of year to see those of you who are already experiencing cooler temps, going to apple orchards, and wearing your sweatshirts and jeans :)
Which leads me to this post. I saw fresh pears, apples and hydrangeas at the grocery store today. And I was inspired to set a little fall table.
Lately, I just haven’t had the desire to do any blogging. You ever felt this way?
I just could not get motivated to do photos, edit, write…
And maybe it’s true I’ve been a tad overwhelmed with the transition from summer into home school. And our oldest, well, she is a freshman now, attending high school. And she loves it.
Juggling it all, well, it does not come easy for me.
Oh, I’ve been popping in on your blogs, to get inspired. And, I really have missed all your sweet comments and conversations. So, now I think I’m back in the swing of things! Ready to create, stage, sew, and post all about it :)
For this fall table scape, I used an old piece of weathered wood over a grain sack to place my centerpiece. Then I put the flowers in the ball jars.
I placed the pears in my antique German molds to hold them steady. How cute would they look holding a place card?
And to adorn the napkin, placed a hydrangea leaf in the center, tied with twine.
Fruits add a subtle splash of color for the changing season. Love how God created such gorgeous colors in nature.
Now, I’d like to dedicate this post to honor a special group of people… who have been heavy on my heart the past several weeks-
ANYONE DEALING WITH CANCER
I lost my mom to ovarian cancer before I started my blog. I think about her so much as I do this without her. She would have been my biggest cheerleader.
Now, I’ve watched as many of you openly express dealing with a loved one with cancer. It is just not easy.
But having all of you helps. All the prayers and support are so needed and appreciated. Let’s reach out. Let’s pray for each other.
Anne of Fiona and Twig- she needs us
Amy of All Things Home- she needs us
and I’m sure so many more of you are affected by cancer in some way.
I wish I would have had all of you when I was going through it with my mom.
At least I have you now :) I’m thankful for that :)
Thanks for hosting, ladies!
