Get Ready for Fall Home Tours

I know it's Friday, and y'all are getting ready for the weekend, but I want
to tell you about two great Fall Home Tours coming up next week. 
Lots of great bloggers will be sharing their fabulous fall creations and
you don't want to miss any of the fun.  Bentley and I are very proud to be
a part of these tours too and we have been decorating, and taking photos
and editing and we are just bursting at the seams with excitement!

Bentley and I are now naturalized Texans and are so happy to be
a part of the Fall In Love With Texas blog tour.  It will be hosted
by our friend Katie over at Let's Add Sprinkles and it begins on
Monday, October 3rd.  Bentley and I are having our tour for this
party on Wednesday October 6th.  We'll give you a hint ~ our
theme this year is A Texas Fall Potting Shed.  Don't you know
we had fun getting ready and we are itching to show it off to you!

We are also pleased to be included in the Bloggers Seasonal
Harvest Tour hosted by Brenda over at Cozy Little House.
Twenty-five bloggers y'all know and love will be inviting 
you into their homes!

And to give y'all a hint about our theme for this party, it's all about 
decorating the front and back porches.  

Enjoy the weekend everyone!  I will be having photos from the
Round Top Antique Week next week too.

Potting Shed Tablescape

We are having some cooler weather and it sure makes me want to be
outside again.  I have been walking around the yard deciding what area
needs some loving first.  I love being outdoors and can hardly wait to start
wearing my garden clogs and getting busy once again.  I also love to 
decorate in a garden theme.  So here is an ancient and chippy wicker table
in my potting shed and it was just waiting for me to decorate it.

My dear friend Sharon sent me these adorable little cups, saucers and spoons
with a bee theme.  So sweet, I just love them to pieces!

The bee skep in the foreground is something I purchased up at 
Round Top last spring.  I am heading up there again and I am so 
excited about going.  It never gets old for me.  I will be taking lots
of photos, so I will be creating a travel log for those of you who
are not lucky enough to get there.

Bentley is King of the Cottage

I just knew it was only a matter of time before Bentley claimed the
granny square blanket for his own ;-)

My First Completed Granny Square Blanket

I am feeling really proud of myself.  I wanted to learn to make granny squares
for the longest time and I finally completed my first granny square blanket.
It's just perfect for curling up with a cup of tea and a book.

It was so much fun to make, and it's convenient also because you can
just make squares over time and save them up and stitch them together.

Of course, I won't be at all surprised if Bentley decides to claim it
for his own ;-)

My Annual Fall Cold

For as long as I can remember,  I have managed to catch a cold sometime
during the last week of September.  I don't know why.  It isn't the cold 
and or flu season, but for me it seems to be.  It's as though the calendar 
dictates my health.  The weather has not changed here.  It's still hot and
humid, but here I am feeling achy and tired and wanting to stay in bed.

I had the the tell tale signs of this cold yesterday.  It started with a 
back ache.  Nothing severe, just annoying.

Then this morning the back ache went away and the headache and 
scratchy throat started.  This is very disappointing.  There are lots of
other things I want to be doing other than being curled up with a 
quilt and a cup of tea.  

I wonder if I went down to Australia at this time of the year if I 
would still get sick?  It's spring there.  Maybe I could trick my 
internal calendar ;-)

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
