Not So Fall

September is here...and I wish fall weather had accompanied it...but no such luck. Autumn has always been my very favorite season...the cool, crisp air, colorful leaves, apples, pumpkins, acorns...I get giddy just talking about it!  So, even though it's not so fall yet, I will pretend.  So, with that, I began to pull out my fall decorations.

The small dresser that my TV is sitting on is a new acquistion.  I love it as it is, but I'm probably going to eventually use some of my favorite paint (Blackberry Paint), sand and wax it, and shabby it up more in some of  my go-to colors.  I've added a few touches of fall, and I like the way it turned out!  

Large orange and gold blooms fill a vintage watering can that I found at the Nashville Flea Market for $10 several years ago.  I just love the look!

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Since I've just moved into my new place, I haven't had time to devote to a garden....so I have chosen an easy alternative...but one that is most useful!  
I chose to focus on a few herbs and some pepper plants this year, and I'm doing so with a "container garden".  I'm sorry to say my pepper plants (that I have always had great success with) aren't doing so well at producing.  The plants themselves are healthy and growing, but they just won't produce!  However, my herbs are really thriving, and I've enjoyed using them in some favorite dishes this summer!

Just Like Mayberry....Sort Of...

Thanks for joining me again on my trip through quaint little towns of Tennessee.
Today, I'm going to focus on a little town called Bell Buckle.
It has such qualities of a "Mayberry" type town that you think you'll see Barney Fife running across the road and into the drugstore!  LOL  And...I happen to be blessed by living just a short distance from this small, Middle Tennessee town.
You will be SURPRISED at what this little town has to offer!!!
Let's take a look!!!

Nothing Like Comfort Foods

There's nothing like  roast, potatoes, and carrots in the crockpot!  And what makes it even more special and yummy is great seasonings and fresh herbs from the garden!
