Rain, Pumpkins and a Whole Lot of Beauty! (TFT Link Party)

October 21st already, friends, and we HAVE RAIN in Northern California!!  Soon all of California with the systems through this weekend! They are saying that these are, OFFICIALLY, ending our very long, large, devastating, and costly fire Season.  All I can say and do is Praise the Lord! Thank you to all of you who have prayed along with me for those tragic fires to end. Though this won't take us out of the drought, it's a darn good start in the right direction!

Can you see me? I LOVE to dance in the rain! 

Alright with that piece of good news conveyed, I can move on to welcoming you to this week's Thursday Favorite Things Party! And, I do welcome you and thank you for joining me each week.

Magical October

 Welcome friends! Happy Thursday. How are you enjoying October? "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers"-from Anne of Green Gables author, Lucy Maud Montgomery I couldn't agree more.  I'm so enjoying the crisp morning air. I hope you're all enjoying the beginnings of Autumn as well. 

Quickly, Theresa, get on with the party! Okay, here we go. Link up, enjoy, visit, inspire or get inspired! 

Just Look at Emily from Le Cultivateur's Magical Fall Evening Table Isn't it just dreamy?!

October Celebrated! (TFT Party)

 Good morning, friends, and welcome back! I can happily say that today was our first, here in Northern California, real Fall-feeling day! Thank God! It was actually chilly this morning! Yay! And, although there's only a slight chance, there's a chance just the same, for some potential light showers one morning in the forecast. Squealing with excitement. It's not just that I love the rain, (even though I really do!) but the drought conditions and fires here have been so bad that were on rationing again...which I don't mind, but what a glorious relief it could be for our poor, overworked firefighters, not to mention our farmers, many who have had to sell off livestock and change their entire lives. So, without going too much further into that, rain in the forecast! Double Yay!

A Little Whimsical Fall Fun!

Good morning friends! It's a wonderful time to celebrate a few Whimsical decorations! I had a lot of fun going through all your wonderful offerings from last week's party. So much incredible, beautiful and yummy inspiration, but I thought it was time to celebrate the whimsier side of the decorating process. Here a just a few examples of some fun decor! Thanks for sharing everyone!

The Fall Countdown Continues with These Beautiful Ideas

Good morning and welcome back. Less than two weeks, and I am counting!! As a matter of fact, I am so excited I had to get these sweet slipcovers to help me ready my house for September 22nd, AKA Fall/Autumn, AKA my favorite time of the year. If you are anywhere near my neck of the woods you'd know we just made it through several days of 100+ degree weather, so, no, it cannot come soon enough! 
Meanwhile, if you're an Amazon affiliate, these would be an awesome choice! There were four in total and I love them! 
Moving on, welcome to this week's TFT party! Thank you for joining me. I hope this finds you all safe and well and comfortable where you are. Let's look at some of the wonderful things you shared last week!

Happy September! Welcome back.  Praying for rain in California and praying for a cease in Ida's path.  I hope you all are safe and well where you are. I'm hoping September turns out to be our month, friends! The turn around time of sorts.  Meanwhile, I am always Amazed at all the beauty you all share every week! Take a look at a few that called to me from last week's party. Blessings, friends.

Summer Eats!

 Welcome friends! Can you believe how absolutely fast this month has gone?! We are already heading into August in just 8 short days! I pray that you are all safe from the fires and the extreme heat. As of this date, we are, here, in my section of Northern California, still safe from the huge fires further up north. Praising God and ever so thankful. Praying for the thousands going through them this year. That has not been the case many previous years. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thank you for sharing your beautiful links with me.
