Technically, it’s not officially fall but today’s weather feels like autumn to me. It was only 58-degrees on my drive to work with a light rain falling on the farm fields. Next week it’s back up to the 80s for an Indian summer.
Last weekend we took our Labor Day trip to the Knoxville area of Tennessee and I’ve got pictures to share next week after I do a little photo editing. It’s a beautiful area and if you live in the volunteer state, I’m completely jealous of you!
My daughter hopes to move to Nashville in four years, and then closer to the Smoky Mountains when her daughter is out of school. That got me to thinking about retiring in Tennessee so our trip was meant to scope out the area. I do want to check out the Chattanooga area, too – hopefully next spring. And I don’t plan to retire for a while so I’ve got time to plan and dream.
I’m excited about sharing my Friday Finds this week. I discovered some cool stuff that I think you’ll enjoy.
This Week’s Friday Finds …
Lately I’ve been obsessed with the color green so you can imagine my excitement when I found an article at Scout and Nimble about the best green paint colors.
Emily Henderson shared a post about the 7 key elements of craftsman style. I find this decor to be so warm and inviting and lucky is the person who lives in a craftsman home.
It’s not too late to putter about in the garden, and right now might be the perfect time to add a greenhouse, like this DIY custom greenhouse from Arrow and Twine.
I know y’all know it’s pumpkin flavor season so I don’t want to disappoint. Try my Pumpkin Fettuccine Alfredo recipe for a tasty twist on pasta. It has a subtle pumpkin flavor and trust me – the calories are worth it!
Lastly, I spied this cool interior decorating flip book that has lots of inspirational photos for decorating smaller spaces.
