Welcoming Fall's Beauty

Hello Everyone!
It's officially fall. Isn't it wonderful?
It has been beautiful weather here in North Carolina.
I hope you are enjoying the lovely new season as well.
My computer has been having issues the last few months
and I finally decided to order a new one. It should arrive
this week. If you don't hear from me then you know why.
Here's what I ordered. I'm excited to get it!
I plan to post later this week with a tablescape displaying
my new fall dishes from Cracker Barrel. Stay tuned!
In the meantime enjoy the beauty of fall with a few photos.

The fall pumpkins are colorful.
I would love to stand on this bridge and make a wish.
A scenic drive leads to home.
This is peaceful perfection.
Ah, so pretty...:)
Happy Fall Ya'll!

I wish I could say I was enjoying the new season. Sadly, I cannot. It's still in the 90's & seems as though it's the middle of summer!! The pictures you posted are gorgeous!!

Erin @ EKat's Kitchen said...

Amazing fall colors and gorgeous photos, Melissa!!! Fall hasn't hit here just yet, but I can't wait to take my camera up into the mountains and check out the colors up there - though it surely can't compare to what you're seeing there.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Ooooo Melissa that new computer sounds very cool with a touch screen! I hope they gave you a discount for blogging about it!:)

Love the fall photos! They reminded me alot of the Fall colors where my Mom lives.

Can't wait to see your new Cracker Barrel dishes!
My Mom loves that place too! She took me to lunch there when I went to visit her! Wish we had one here!

Hugs, Sherri:)

I recently got new computers. It's trying for me to get them set and running but after the fact, I'm happy with them.
Looking forward to seeing your Fall dishes.

Richella said...

What beautiful photos, Melissa! I especially like the bridge.

Isn't it wonderful for the weather to have FINALLY turned a little cooler here? I am so grateful. Now I've got to get the rest of my fall decorating done. If only you could come spend a day with me. You could help me get my house all nice and clean like yours, and then we could play with pumpkins and leaves and all kinds of fun things!
