Yes, Orange Is Allowed

Yes, it's true, girls- I do love my cottagey pastels but this *is* a country blog too so traditional colors like Orange *are* allowed! Here's a little seasonal corner of my home that finally got the Fall treatment! See the bucket that the baby scarecrows are in? And see the bunny in the Orange sack? Those are from sweet Lisa at Pupylov! She cleaned out her seasonal decor recently and sent me a package with a little decor from each season and some scrap booking supplies! So fun! Thanks again, Lisa!
Hopefully I can add a bit of Fall to my front porch this week, too!
I was a good girl yesterday and had a nice rest. I watched a movie in my Sweet Retreat. It was a movie that my Goth boy Caleb referred me too so I basically watched it for him but I'm glad I did. It was called August Rush. Has anyone seen it? I loved it and bawled like a baby- a happy baby. ☺
It's 64 degrees this morning! Virginia is so funny. I hear a huge wind coming up and it will probably push that warm air out and bring in some cooool weather once again. I just hope it pushes the rain away, too! DREARY!
I hope all of my blogging girls have a wonderful Wednesday and that all your dreams come true!

Hi Holly! I think all this orange looks beautiful in your sweet cottage! You have done a wonderful job decorating. I love the lantern :)

Lisa said...

WOW! All the love! Thanks guys! I so needed it today! Your fall looks great! I just knew that sweet little bunny would be at home with you! August Rush is good. I liked it too. Almost a cool twist on Oliver Twist! Glad you were good and that you have fall weather. It was 80 today but there was no humidity so it was very nice BUT 80 in October come on!
Have a happy week!
Hugs, Lisa

Hi Holly, Love your fall decor. I know it is orange but looks so inviting warm and harvest like. I paint lots of pink pumpkins but I decorate with traditional and white ones too. Love the bucket full of scarecrows. Too cute. How nice to get a package of seasonal decor from a friend.

It has been dreary and rainy all week here so far too. I don't mind though, after the hot days of summer a little cooler weather is appreciated here in Texas. And, I love to paint when it rains. So it's okay!!

I have not seen that movie. I 'll have to look for it.
Have a great night.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Lovin' your country fall corner...and how sweet of Lisa to send you some fall things...everything looks so cute! Glad you got some rest sweetie...I haven't ever seen that movie, but I'll try to find it on dvd sometime. Nite nite...it's almost my bed time! To tell you the truth girl, I shouldn't even be commenting this late...I am delirious by the time of the night. LOL! TTYL
Big Hugs,

Thanks Holly, it's been a good day! As you can tell I'm badly out of my blogging routine. Your fall decorations look great and it wouldn't be fall without some orange! Our trees are starting to turn and it is just looking gorgeous. Hope you are having a great restful night. Twyla

Watching a good "howler" movie is good once in a while. Have a great week.

Sandi said...

Pretty fall decor Holly! Yes I have seen August Rush...we bought the movie last year. Amazing and heartwrenching movie!!

LillySue said...

That tray behind it all is so pretty! I still haven't embraced fall decorating. I may just go with the few things I have out already and jump to Christmas early this year. It was about 29 degrees here this morning...I will try to send some of it your way!
P.S. Loved August Rush
