~Inspiration for a Fall Chair and Simple & Sweet Fridays #237~

You know when you see something you just have to have.
Well, Carly and I were driving down the street and saw this chair out in front of a house on the curb!!
I knew I had to have it.
So, I turned the car around and Carly helped me get it into the car.
I absolutely love it.
The detail to it and it was FREE!!!
I have always wanted to have something special in our entryway and this was the answer!!
I picked some pumpkins from our garden and displayed them in their new spot.
I had just gone to Michael's and purchased some wheat stalks.
They looked great in the French Wall Basket for the front door.
I stamped pages of a book for the new chair.
The chair fits in next to our hydrangea.
The hanging chandelier adds a classic look to the new chair.
I'm so lucky to have been at
 the right place 
at the right time!!
Stan is helping me add to the new area with some growing pumpkins.
I'll share a photo next time!
I wanted to share some photos of our lab, 
Maggie's first photo shoot.
Our daughter, Carly works at Westfield UTC Center and they asked Carly to bring in 
Maggie to play at their dog park. Of course, we said yes!!
She performed like a princess!!
Maggie is 12 1/2 years old now. We love everyday she's with us!
Kale salad with pomegranate seeds, quinoa, chicken, avocado, feta, lemon, olive oil and candied walnuts.
It was a beautiful Fall weekend in San Diego!

  8. Jody,
    You certainly were at the right place at the right time to find that wonderful chair. I am so envious of your home-grown pumpkins. I just bought some at the local nursery, but can't spend that much money to get as many as you have on your new old chair. Thanks for hosting each week.
