As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Hello, Autumn!

I am an autumn girl in my heart of hearts. And yet, although I have been thinking autumn for weeks, September began without so much as the scent of a pumpkin candle around here! I s-l-o-w-l-y added an autumn touch here and there, we went to the farm stand for some seasonal bounty, and now (finally!) autumn is here in my world!  Ahhhhhh...


Feel free to take a peek around my nooks and crannies...

Yes, it's my favorite time of year...full of candlelight, rich color, spicy scents, and cooler air.
(Spicy crumb cake with raisins only adds to the pleasure...and makes the house smell sooooo  good!)

What's your favorite thing about autumn?

Linking up with Melissa's Fall Nesting Link Party @ The Inspired Room


  1. Today is a very nearly perfect autumn day so I have been scouting for bittersweet. I found some, but most of it is too green stll.

    Your home looks so perfectly autumn. Something about prim lends itself beautifully to autumn decor. Had to snag something for my autumn folder on Pinterest.

  2. Enjoyed your nooks and crannies. They are simple and simply beautiful!

  3. Absolutely beautiful autumn decorations, and this is my favorite season too, for the same reasons as you do.Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi Cheryl, I found your blog through Creekside your home and fall touches...looks really inviting and comfy...happy fall!

  8. Vee said it best, prim and autumn go hand in hand! I love all your touches. Looks wonderful. And the crumb cake. yum! xo

  9. ah, a kindred spirit. Fall is my favorite time of the year. Your home looks very warm and cozy with all the fall touches. I baked a bit today, but that crumb cake is making me want to bake one right now!

  10. oh, yes, Autumn is my favorite time of year! You have a beautiful and welcoming style of decorating. I love the way you create simple vignettes that pack a punch.
