Fall Is Now Boarding On Here I Come Ready or Not Airlines...And a Project Update

The clouds continue to weep on this last day of summer.  Looking out my backdoor this morning, I noticed how quickly the leaves are changing on this Sweet Gum tree.

One of my Crepe Myrtles is also looking a little less green.

Can you see the leaves on the ground already.  My husband is going to have fun this Fall, keeping all the leaves cleaned is definetly a full time job for him every year.

Fall has boarded the plane and arrival time is 12:00am....hold on to your hats.

I did not have as much time to paint this weekend as I had hoped....the call of the Grandbabes is too much for this ole girl to resist.  I did get my black basecoat on all 3 suitcases and some of my next coat on 2.

The large one is definetly in need of a couple more coats....the hard thing about painting is that the paint has to dry...and when you want to get on with it, how aggravating is that?  Maybe I will be able to get super busy and complete these after work tonight so that I can show you how they turn out....As long as the Grandbabes don't call out to Jammi, we might get something going here. 

All the best,

Pin It!

Hi Anita...

My friend, it IS beginning to look alot like Autumn at your place! You know, I love those pretty crepe myrtles with all the they would be pretty in some Autumn bouquets!!!

Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve with those suitcases, my friend! Sure hope you get some time to finish your project...but I certainly understand about fulfilling the "Grandma's calling"'s first and foremost! Hehe! Got to enjoy those babies while we can!!!

Just wanted to thank you for coming by and taking a peek at my autumn living room...sure did enjoy your sweet note, my friend!!!

Warmest wishes and Happy Fall!

Oh the look of the leaves turning is so pretty. We don't see much of that here in the desert. I can't wait to see how your suitcases turn out. They look like so much fun. Thanks for the tips on all the wonderful giveaways. I will definitely go enter. Hugs, Marty
