Fall At Cobblestone...

It's been rainy and cool here so it's really starting to look and feel like fall around Kentucky.  One more week or so and I believe the leaves will be "showing off" with all their beautiful colors on display - simply one of my favorite things in nature. 
 
One of these days I will make it back to the Maine/New Hampshire area where I saw the most breathtaking fall color EVER several years back - absolutely stunning.
 
Honestly, I didn't do as much fall decorating this year as I usually do.  I simply used what I already had and didn't spend an entire paycheck on pumpkins, mums, gourds, Indian corn, fodder shocks - you get the idea ;-)  See, for 13 years I grew my own - and I just decorated every nook and cranny - but now that I have to pay for all those pretties - needless to say - I don't go quite as crazy.
 
Enjoy the look around!


 
Keeping it simple in the kitchen...


Love my lil' autumn barn print - fifty cents - gotta love that... 

 
Mantle in the dining area...

 
Basket full of dried gourds and antlers...

 
Sorry about the glare - I reeeeally do need a photography class ;-)

 
The entry chalkboard - nothing fancy...

 
In the sunroom...


 
I'm ready to turn on the fireplace...

 
Let's go outside...
 
...loving my "warty goblin" pumpkin...

 
I'm still hanging on to my ferns - they are still so pretty...

 
A few mums scattered around. This is one of my favorite varieties - it is called yellow "Bethany".  A late compact bloomer - she's just now getting started!


Simple window boxes...

 
My ornamental cabbage is outgrowing my lil' pumpkins - that is o.k. - they will be great through winter!

 
By the fountain...

 
Y'all just pretend you don't see my flower bed that needs some serious TLC right now - like some weeding and pruning and mulching and the list goes on an on - but doesn't it always.
 


All lists aside - we have to stop and truly
Enjoy this beautiful time of year!
 
Happy Fall Friends!

Always LOVE visiting your farm Cathy. You may not have spent a paycheck on decorations this year but it doesn't show. Your home looks amazing.

What a beautiful tribute to Fall. You have more than enough "stuff" to make it feel truly like Fall there. I hear you about growing your own and then having to buy them. I cut way back, too. lol


My ornamental cabbages took off like crazy this year, too. The best I have ever had.

Hope you have a wonderful week- xo Diana

Your Fall decorating is all so pretty! Love the giant metal(?) pumpkin outside! I think your chalkboard looks great! I am the worst at chalk board art!

Everything looks great!
I adore your window boxes, and the ornamental cabbages.

On your last post, I just saw "Fixer Upper" for the first time this last weekend, and love it!
The gal on that show and I could definitely be BFF's! Love her style.

Have a great day, and enjoy this wonderful time of year :)
