Getting Ready for Fall

Over the long weekend Hubby and I did a lot of yard work and getting ready for some fall sowing. Here is a photo of the leaves changing on our miniature maple tree.

I did some Fall decorating around the house.

Pope John Paul II roses.
Getting my seeds ready.
This will be the first time that I will attempt to sow some brussels sprout seeds. I start them next month.
Getting my fall and winter reading ready.
A couple of my favorite decorations.
My Daughter made this beautiful paper flower wreath for me for my birthday last year. This was a kit purchased from the Paper Source store.
I have been doing some hand embroidery also. After I finished with it I decided to make another cover for the kitchen shelf.
The design came from Aunt Martha's hot iron transfers that I purchased for $1.49 at Jo-ann's.
The double lace that I used for the cover.
I love the saying. "Home is where I want to Bee!".

Hope you had a nice weekend too. Thanks for the visit and have a wonderful day.
