Get Out the Rake

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments about step one of our kitchen/breakfast room/dining room makeover. One of my favorite parts about blogging is how kind and supportive (not to mention inspirational!) all of you are. You guys rock.

So, I actually got home from work while it was still daylight yesterday and I noticed a little something in the front of our house... those beautiful fall leaves that have graced our treetops over the last few weeks are starting to pile up on the ground. Ladies and gents- I think it's time to get out the rake blower and do a little fall lawn maintenance!

Here's my view of the yard yesterday.

I am loving how our house looks in all of its autumn glory. And while it means a lot of leaves, I am certainly grateful for all of our beautiful hardwood trees.

Can you believe it's already time to pull out the old rake?! Have any of you rolled around in the leaf piles yet?


  1. Your house looks beautiful in the fall with all those leaves! Love your red door!!

  2. How beautiful!! What gorgeous trees you have!!Unfortunately, we don't get much of those gorgeous colors in Houston.

  3. So pretty. I love your red door. The whole house is so cute. We definitely get very few of those leaves in California :(

  4. Your front yard looks so pretty and very very Fall-ish. Love it!

    I'm dreading when the leaves in our backyard oak tree's start to fall in all their glory... because 3 of them [very large] hover right over our in-ground pool [and we don't have a cover yet :( ]

  5. I love how the red door and red leaves on the tree pop off the white and gold colors. It's so beautiful! Fall is such a great season.

  6. Just found your blog via Courtney, following, looking forward to what you do next! :)

  7. Came over from Courtney's (A Thoughtful Place). You have a beautiful home. I am now a new follower!!
