Happy Labor Day!

To all who labor!

My husband is working this weekend, and today, he even traded weekends, because of the fabulous overtime! We are going to Williamsburg in a few weeks and this overtime will be helpful!

I dropped my son at work today, dropped off a notebook to our pastor's wife, who I am doing Apples of Gold with, and then meet my mom at the Candle Barn. I love to go to this store every season and see how they are decorating. They use interested things to display their candles.


I found some wonderful tea towels to use as a valance in my kitchen, and to use on my coffee table, got some delightful autumn colored, cinnamon scented candles, and an wrought iron wreath holder. Ahhh, I promised myself I wouldn't decorate for autumn so soon, but I got so inspired at the Candle Barn that I am doing just a little bit for now. Besides, when Apples of Gold starts on the 12th, I will have a warm and welcoming atmosphere in keeping with the season. Also, considering how busy I have been, I won't have to be in a rush to clean and get things spruced up the few days, before we start!!!!

Have a lovely day everyone!


  1. I am so jealous...autumn is my favorite season. Living in northern FL we do experience a little bit of autumn. However, it is what you make it - and autumn is going to ours at the White house this year. :) The decorating has begun...thank you for the inspiration.
