~Happy 1st Day of Fall and Simple & Sweet Fridays # 238~

Happy 1st day of Fall!!
We're so excited that we got rain on Tuesday too!
The garden definitely needs it.
Decorating the house with lots of foliage from the garden.
I love the light green color from the eucalyptus leaves.
The cinderella pumpkin that we grew in the garden
 looks so pretty with lights on it!
I picked baby boo pumpkins and butternut squash from the garden  to display with the Fall wreath.
I added lights to our buffet with leaves and a wheat bundle.
Putting some refreshments out for a fun weekend.
I wanted to tell you it's my birthday on Friday!!
Our kids will all be home to celebrate my 65th!!
Where did the time go?
I made this wreath with peach and creme roses from Michael's, Love the colors.
I added eucalyptus sprigs and green berries.
I love how it turned out!
I love amaranth flowers for Fall arrangements.
I bought some plants last year but they never came up.
Red apples add a wonderful glow to a wooden bowl.
I put out my velvet pumpkins I made last year.
I thought some bling on them would be a special touch.
My whimsical birds on the candelabra with dried hydrangeas & lights make up a Fall vignette.



I love how simple the photo looks with just some silver eucalyptus.
I had to buy some pumpkin cream cheese muffins at Trader Joe's.
They are very tasty!
I made Pumpkin bread.
I bought the bakeware at Home Goods.
It looks like a magical carriage!
I found this recipe on pinterest and had to try it.

They were delicious!
Here's the recipe;
Hope you like it!
I wanted to stamp and watercolor.
We are harvesting lots of different vegetables and fruits this year.
Here are a few!
Olives from our olive tree.


Eggplant
Zucchini
Tomatoes
Different Lettuce
Radicchio
Our Pomegranate Tree
We'll have lots this winter.
Broccoli
Grape Tomatoes
Of course, our pumpkins are still growing everywhere in the garden.
I wanted to show you we added a pumpkin 
in a pot in our front yard.
I just added the little pumpkins for color 
until the pumpkin grows!

What have you been working on this week?
 I just love all the creative ideas and recipes you've shared.
It's always so inspiring for the holidays!
Thank you again for always stopping by every week with your amazing ideas!!

  14. Oh Jody, you are always working on so many clever, wonderful ideas. Those green velvet pumpkins are beautiful, I love them! The lights look so pretty dangling from the pumpkin on your table, and your wreath is lovely with the peach roses. Don't ya just love Michaels? I didn't know that Trader Joes had cream cheese muffins, Yummy! I had my first cream cheese muffin the other day at Starbucks. And you have a Pomegranate tree!!! You know, I've put pomegranates in my kids' stockings at Christmas since they were little. Your garden looks wonderful with the eggplants and the zucchinis and the tomatoes. You are a busy bee lately, and it shows by all the creative things you are making.
