Fall is in the Air!

Fall is my favorite time of year!

Dogwoods are showing the first blush of autumn color after a long, hot summer and FALL is in the air this week~ with lower humidity and night-time temperatures in the 50’s!

There will be plenty more hot weather for us in September and even October, but I’m primed for fall!

With the hint of fall in the air, I am ready for ALL things FALL~  fires, hoodies, blankets, picnics, and tailgates!

The promise of cooler temperatures has whet my appetite for apples, pumpkins & harvests~ so I pulled a few tablescapes from the archives.

    I couldn’t comment on the JEEP tailgating post so came back here. That was awesome! I LOVE THAT JEEP! Love the blue color but how YOU did it was amazing. I hope your (upset) hubby realizes what a LUCKY guy he is to have you! Loved every bit of that post. XO

    Oh my goodness gracious!!! I just found your beautiful blog and can’t stop looking! I’m going through your back posts and relishing in your gorgeous projects, photos and arrangements.

    I also live on the water, so I relate to the nautical. beach type decor.

    I’ll be a regular visitor with you for certain!

    Mary, what a feast for my fall/pumpkin loving eyes. Olive

    Each and every one is a classic, Mary! I think my favorite was the one with the picnic in the back of the pickup….just perfect!!! If I had a truck, I’m sure I’d be driving to remote areas to just hang out and picnic from the back like that! Kinda hard to do it with a sedan! :-) It’s hot again here today. We hit the mid-90s yesterday and may do likewise today. Cooler temps moving in for the weekend, though. Hooray!!!

    Beautiful! I always love your pictures! The fall lake view is dreamy. Wish I were there.

  24. September 13, 2012 at 9:41 am

    I’ve just copy/pasted your url to my blog roll to follow there. Always love visiting you at the lake. I so so need a lake house. How do you like Lake Norman? I’ve checked out the Hickory area in search of the perfect lake town. We have a getaway in the Smoky Mountains and I think I need to switch to lake living. Love it and so will my crew (husband and doggies). Stop by sometime.
    Cheers! Rita @May Days

  30. September 13, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    I am being dragged kicking and screaming into fall. As much as I love the colors, the season is so fleeting and our Midwest winters are way too long. I will admit to loving early fall, however, and your lovely photos exemplify everything positive about the season!

  31. September 13, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Mary, what a treat to revisit some of your fall tablescapes. Your photography always astounds me.

  32. September 13, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Wow! Gorgeous! Fabulous!

  33. September 14, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    All gorgeous posts! Your centerpieces are a work of art…

  34. September 14, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    Fabulous inspiration! Thanks for a recap of some of your always-memorable posts!

  35. September 14, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Hello, you often have such beautiful quilts as tableclothes. I would be afraid someone would spill. Are you brave or are these just pretend meals etc. Whatever the answer is I am loving them just the same. I look forward to your next tablescape. Lisa

  42. September 16, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Hi Mary, I bookmarked this post so I can go back and explore every single table. I know I haven’t seen them all yet, and am looking forward to a nice long read! Today we are getting the mums and apples. I have not been in a fall mood, but I think these pictures are helping me! Linda

    Your applesauce pear cake looks spectacular, Mary! Thank you for commenting on my warm pimento cheese dip. We were in Asheville on August 18th-23rd. I picked up the cookbook at the Tupelo Honey Cafe and put it back, too. However, once I got home, I regretted it and ordered it from Amazon. I’m going to be sharing more recipes from it.

  50. September 16, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Wow awesome tablescape!


  51. September 16, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    You make picnicking an art!!! I especially love the jeep since I drive one!! Mine has never looked that cute though!!!!

  52. September 17, 2012 at 3:22 am
