Fall, A Summers Wave Goodbye

It has been a while since I have had time to spend on blogging and I've missed it.  So, it is good to again join friends who also meet up with Carissa for Miscellany Monday.

Hubby and I spent a couple weeks up in the Midwest with our son and his family.  You saw pictures of this precious family on my last post.  We left 90 degree weather in northwest Louisiana in early September to enjoy much cooler temps in the north.  I love Fall and we were introduced to it while there.  But, what a shock to go from 37 degrees 6:30 on Sunday morning in Mishawaka, IN to 94 in Shreveport, LA at 9:30 p.m.

But, that being said, this weekend has been wonderful as Fall as arrived in full where we live.  So, I thought I would share with you some pictures of things Fall that I have seen and also the fall look I have brought to my little home.

Hubby and I visited a produce cart near our son's house and I loved the colors and arrangement of this neat "honor system" business.
 This past Monday, I introduced Hubby to the huge Whole Foods Market in Baton Rouge.  I don't think I have ever seen such an assortment of pumpkins.  Don't you love these colors?

 Although I do not usually redecorate my home for the different seasons/holidays, I do like to add a few fall touches.

A fallen leaf is nothing more
than a summer's wave good bye.

Good bye Summer!

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. Oh, my goodness, those pumpkins are gorgeous! I've been cold all day but I'm so excited to think that Fall may have actually arrived.

    Love all your fall touches. I have a few touches but nothing like I use to do. :o) Happy week!

  2. Great post !

    Love your pictures and articles!!

    A blog like this should definitely be followed so here I am :)

    Stop by mine when you have the time!!


  3. I love all the pumpkin varieties we get now. Your house looks lovely...I've started on my mantle but it needs help. It has a soaring ceiling above with a huge mirror so it's always hard for me to get the proportions right. Have a nice week!

  4. Libby, your fall decor is wonderful! I love decorating this time of year; and the cool weather this past weekend was perfect!

  5. Libby- don't you just love the idea of a honor system produce stand? Your pictures of the pumpkins and zinnias are gorgeous- I am glad you are enjoying retirement- taking time to enjoy your beautiful grandchildren. Susan at Romancing the Home
