See Ya September!

The last day of the month is always bittersweet for me. Hate to see another month in the books but looking forward to October!

The Whitlow Place

This farm is where I lived for a couple of years when I was young.  The house is in very bad shape and doesn't look as if it can last much longer.  Oh how I wish someone would restore her to her original beautiful self! Just looking at the picture I can almost see myself when I was young  running around the grounds, going fishing at the pond, flying kites, riding my bike on the enclosed back porch, and chasing my brothers pig that got loose before school one morning. Thank you God for Sweet Memories!

Hope your weekend is full of Memory Makers!

Zekes Fall Photo Shoot

 
                  Today is such a pretty day that me and Zeke decided to have a photo shoot! 
 

 This is Zeke's bed that he sleeps in inside the house. We thought it would be cute to take it outside for a little fun! (It was all his idea. I just agreed to it! :)


Hmm! Mums smell nice!



                               He thought this would make  a cute pose!


Pretending to watch a bird fly by!

                                         

Okay Mom, I'm getting a little bored with this!


Happy Thursday from Zeke the Wonderdog!

Rainy Days and Mondays

Another rainy fall day! Wish I could get in the mood to decorate for autumn. I know it will hit me soon. I've just now started to see a few pumpkins making their appearances. That should do the trick!

Our living area is always in fall colors. Not sure how that happened but I believe it began with the purchase of a rusty orange colored sofa!

    Silhouettes hang from the stairs.

Old wooden box filled with clocks. And my favorite number! *5*

I love pictures that have children in them!

 Brown transferware plate in my new truck that I got for my birthday from my best friend Angie!  

Gotta run and do a little bit of work around the house. I hope your Monday is peaceful and productive!

Front Porch Project


A peek at my latest addition to my front porch!


 
  
I decided to paint an old chest of drawers that used to be in the girl's room years ago. Thought turquoise would be a fun color to use!!


I still have to paint my vintage metal chairs and get a few more decorations! Oh, and I've gotta start decorating for Fall! The weatherman said to look for cooler temps this weekend, so that might help to set the mood!

Hope you have a Fantabulous Friday!!!

For the Love of Mondays

I love Mondays! A new beginning, a quiet house, a week of accomplishments to imagine!



Did you enjoy your weekend? After a crazy day of hard labor on Saturday (planting 12 Knock-out roses and mums and a new project that I will share later!) I had a relaxing(?) day of shopping with my oldest Casey for her New Professional Look!   A senior in college, she is close to making her appearance in the Adult Working World !




It is an overcast day here at Happy Acres and since I can't take pics of some new purchases over the weekend I thought I would share some old favorites.



 Hope you have a Marvelous Monday!

Zeke the Wonderdog

Just a quick post to introduce you to the King in the Steadman household! Zeke is a Chiweenie and is about as wide as he is tall. He loves relaxing in the sun, sleeping until noon, milkbones, and belly rubs. He is always available for kitchen floor clean-up duty (unless it is before noon).


               Uh-oh...looks like it is getting close to nap time. We will check back in on him when he has a little more energy! (It may be a while)

In the beginning...



... there was a little girl named Sandra. Her parents drug her to every antique store and flea market within a 100 mile radius of Glasgow, Ky. where she grew up. Sandra vowed and I quote, "I will NEVER have an antique in my home!"  Oh well, some odd years later and many apologies to my husband of 25 years, and  I am sure you know how the story ends....I love you John T. for not leaving when I changed my mind.







                                       
Not real sure if you can call them antiques, around here it is just known as Moms Junk! Hope y'alls day is wonderful. Here in Bama we have a nip in the air, a sweet blessing from above. Don't ya just love fall? ;)

Under Construction....

 
 

Haven't a clue what I am doing and I must confess that I even hate to write. But I do love blogs! Especially the pictures!  And with the kids slowly leaving the nest one by one I need a place just to jot down the emotions of life. Well here goes, you are most welcome to jump on the wagon and  hopefully enjoy the journey.
