C'Mon "Autumn Like" Weather...

It has been hot, hot, and hot here. I've been asking Mother Nature... okay begging Mother Nature, to please, please, please show us a bit of compassion and send some cooler temps. Finally, we may be seeing some relief. Today's high is only forecasted to be in the low 90s and even lower temps by the end of the week! So exciting to me! Yahoo, wahoo and major and I mean MAJOR "Happy Dancing" going on over here.
I keep trying to "psych" myself out by surrounding myself with anything "Autumish"(as if that could help bring in the cooler temps). Well, it might....right? Just go with me on this :0) Humor me. I'm desperate here!

We are getting the cool down here too. Yay! Makes it feel more like it is autumn. Looks like the LA area is cooling down just in time for our visit there next week. Actually this week. We leave on Friday!

Ohh, it is so cool here, the weather report even predicted some snow flurries...and we have leaves downed all around the yards, streets, everywhere!
Hope you get real autumn weather soon.

Hey! Your fall decor is so cute and I hope the temps cool off soon for you too! We are 57 today, but were mid 30's first thing this morning. YEs, really.... in the Northwest Florida Panhandle. Some people think Florida just stays the perfect temps, but we get a real winter in North Florida. It's a slow start usually end of Oct. but we know what cold is down here in the deep south. LOL! It's supposed to be freezing temps tonight too. Hope you have a great day!

I feel your pain! Really, I do! Living in the south can get depressing in the heat of the summer. But we have been blessed to have some really cool temps lately and frost for the past two days. It was actually just below freezing here.
So I wish you cool temps too. Hang in there. It's coming!

Your decorations are very nice. I just heard our weather report. There is a chance of flurries tonight. Right now it is 46 degrees. I'd be happy to send you some of the cool weather. :)

take care,

Hi there again. I see you are doing the upside down wine glass thing for the pumpkins. Works great doesn't it. I do that too now that I found out about it. My granddaughter is dressed as a pirate. If you scroll down my blog some you will see pics of that, plus on my DIL's blog there are more. Happy Halloween!

I do hope you get your cooler weather....we have been pretty cool here in Oklahoma. Today was a bit warmer than it has been but I still wore my sweatshirt...LOVE it!! CUTE, cute decorations!

I came back to answer you about Twilight. I am 47 and I absolutely LOVED it!!! I am now on the next book in the series called New Moon and it is GREAT too!!

Hi Rechelle, boy, we have cold weather here lately. It even snowed on Tues.

It is unseasonal here but we sure do look pretty here now. The mountains are glowing with color.

Even if it is hot your house looks festive with your autumn decor. Very pretty and cute.

Loving your fall decor! Clever putting little pumpkins on the upside-down crystal glasses!!! Happy Hallowwen!

I would paint the cabinet after priming it. That way if you ever decide to strip it, it can be done much easier.

Love all your decor, especially the pumpkins.
