Ah, Autumn….you finally arrived.  Despite the lack of color in the leaves this year, assuming due to the continuous rain here in PA…..I managed to brighten the exterior and interior of our home with some bright colors thru simply placed Autumn Vignettes, from J & L Shafer Farms!

On the exterior…..Jerry and I tried our hands at cement pouring jack-o-lanterns!  If your curious on how we created these…..all you need to do is look thru Pinterest or my friends on FaceBook ~ so many different options to create!  I will be happy to share too…just message me!

and to the back yard, under the pergola too.  

So excited about the addition to our garage (left side of photo) ~ it is a simple shed but will be covered in red cottage shingles, a green metal roof and a vintage ol’ door….eventually.

…and to the interior a few Autumn Vignettes using vintage parts and pieces are placed.

While snapping photos…I thought the above would be a nice color pencil project so I ‘sketched’ the image in editor to create a line drawing.  I typically draw from hand….but thought this would be useful as a designer….pretty neat huh?

typically I do not show the ‘whole picture’…..and thought it was about time to share a view or two of our ‘living space’.  This room serves as a den, reck-room, tv-media space, and living room……hoping to work on a fire-place insert and new braided carpeting this year….good things in time.
