we have fall like types here already as most of our trees have turned some weather but,enjoying it all as i'm decorating for fall here and qvc will be having valerie's autumn show on soon can't wait for that i love her items.
All this talk about fall. LOL It has got me pumped and so I have decided to take this extended weekend to start putting up my fall decorations. I usually wait til the end of September but I'm ready for a change now. Yesterday I picked up some fall scented candles from a new store that opened up in the shopping center behind my job. It's called DEALS but it looks like a Dollar Tree, except everthing's not a dollar. Four came in a pack for $3 so I bought two packs. They smell wonderful (apple heart, crisp autumn, pumpkin patch and New England maple. I can't wait to burn them.
The temps here have been in the mid to upper 80's but without all the humidity which makes it bareable. I hope we get to actually experience fall too. The grand prix is in downtown Baltimore this weekend. The weather should be nice for the races.
There's starting to be a chill in the air here - I am wearing a cardigan today and need it!! The weather forecaster this morning (for UK, the Irish ones weren't awake yet!!) said that they'd announced the wettest summer in 100 years this week, and that last night was the coldest August night EVER!! And mentioning people having to "scrape their cars" (for frost) this morning!! It is only 55 today, and I was looking longingly at thermals in the store yesterday, but we so rarely have SUCH low temps to really need loads of them that I can't justify getting anymore at the moment.
I think though, that I will be moving the plan to order coal and logs for the fire from early October back to the next 2 weeks while DH is away!
It's been chilly here as i've washed the winter things and have them in the closet actually have been wearing sweaters and fleece jackets had to close down the windows a few times.Fall seems to be here as everything is changing and some of our leaves are falling this has been crazy as most here say it will be an early winter so i'm already getting set for it as well as stocking my pantry.:snowman2:
Whereabouts are you angelpugs? It's been chilly in the early morning and evening for a few days now in UK. I started putting out some of my autumn decorations yesterday - still got some to do as the month progresses. Haven't heard anything about an early winter but it's certainly an early autumn.
This thread just completely de-railed me! That Pinterest just sucks me in! I have to ration it (usually only at night). Such great boards, ladies! I have to go get me some burlap to make some of those frames!
I wish I had a Pinterest account but I don't want to attach it to my Facebook account so I just lurk. Sigh. Looking at your boards though is making me change my mind!
What a wonderful thread. It really got me in the mood for Fall! It's still in the 70s here in the Northwest. No rain in sight. Very odd for us. Pumpkin lattes are coming though and I just pulled a recipe yesterday for Eggnog French Toast!
