It is in the air...
I will say that my local haunts are not doing anything to discourage this excitement. After three miles and seeing some wonderful friends at the gym I headed to the Farmers Market on a mission (took the day off from work). The "Macho" ferns in our front urns finally gave in to the offensive Alabama heat. While looking for replacements I found these mums. They will be that beautiful burnt auburn color. Just remember when buying your mums that they only bloom once & honestly if I didn't have empty urns I wouldn't have bought these so close to full bloom. I know that with this heat I will have to replace them soon anyway so I went for it!
Then I went to my favorite place, The Fresh Market & was greeted by pumpkins!!! Beautiful, gorgeous pumpkins - I came home with two and everything I need to make my chili. I will share that recipe later in the weekend. Chili, pumpkins & mums = Hello Fall!
I also came home with these. One thing you have to know is that I am fascinated by china - I come by it honestly (I had a strange obsession with Limoge plates as a child). This is definitely the most affordable of my favorites - Fiesta! I adore it - it screams funky and out of the ordinary. It says "I don't stay inside the lines or even want to fit into the appropriate box". Color is good!!! See Jennifer - I told you I was up to something. In my defense there was a sale, buy 4 and get the 5th free. And the Fiesta I already had needed company. Ok now I am off to redo my cabinets to make room for my new friends. Happy Friday!!!
