The weather hasn't even turned colder and I am feeling that fall nesting urge.I made a few new signs and a basket for the front door and steps.

It was rather sad to cut down the sunflowers. Some of those stalks were pretty big! I got lots of big seed heads and have them placed around the yard at the feeders for the birds to enjoy. It seems like yesterday that I planted those seeds! A few small sunflowers are still hanging on. The hummingbirds are also hanging on! We are still filling all of the feeders as they are being visited all day long. I only count 4 at a time now but they are busy little things. I think they are filling up for their long trek south. We planted mums and since I could find no real pumpkins yet, put out some faux pumpkins.

The sink in this house was not my favorite. This is what it looked like when we first visited the house in December. (someday I will show the whole kitchen)
BEFORE - standard stainless sink

I was missing my sink that we had installed a few years back in our old house. Can you believe we saw it at Lowes for $100 off?? We did, and here it is NOW!

Our deck staining has been an ongoing project interrupted but we are determined to finish it today. I will post pictures when it is done. You can see some more changes folks are doing in and around their homes at Metamorphosis Monday! You can also see lots of before and after projects at Sanctuary Arts!

Love your fall decorating! I saw a rabbit with a festive bow, LOL. My blog greeter, Marty, approves!

I redecorated my blog yesterday and that is as far as I have gotten.

Lots of work to do in your new garden. Looks like you have made a start though. Like the sink.

Brings memories of my many visits to NC. Mostly Boone, Blowing Rock and Lake Norman.

Hi Sue, love your tall rabbit and the bow. Your front door is gorgeous, I just love a shiny black front door. Your sink is cool. never seen anything like it. I'm not a stainless fan either. Great fall decorating.

Early "Happy Fall"!!! Your porch looks so cute.
I am itching to put my fall things out, but I am in the middle of the guest room re-do, so it will have to wait a little longer.
Glad you stopped by and left a comment.
