Am I the only wishing fall weather would make an appearance or are there some of you feeling the cool crisp air outside and sad to see summer end?

I have been sneaking the fall decor ever so discretely in around the house hoping no one walking in
from the sweltering heat here in Southern California calls me on it.

The temps have actually dropped 10 degrees or so but we are still facing a few weeks in the 80's and 90's and I figure if I wait for the weather to cooperate it may be time to bring out the Christmas tree before the first pumpkin graces my dining room hutch.

And so the centerpiece has been transitioned from summertime to autumn with the addition of a few ceramic pumpkins from the Dollar Tree, a pumpkin scented yankee candle and some fallish flowers from Trader Joe's.  Nothing over the top but a definite move in the direction of fall.

I have been busy as a bee with my YouTube channel and am having the time of my life sharing cleaning and organizing tips, a little bit of shopping and home decor and even a bit of food prep.  I feel like I have finally found my niche and would love to have you come on over and hit the subscribe button.

And just so you know I haven't totally gone all Autumn I thought I'd show you a picture of my dining room hutch in all it's color abandon glory.  Just don't look too closely as you might see a pumpkin lurking in the background!

I've attached a couple of my latest videos for your viewing pleasure.  Grab a cup of something pumpkin spice or a glass of sweet tea, depending on what you're willing weather wise and join me.

XO, Patty


  1. I've subscribed to your YouTube channel and love it. You are good at doing it! I've binge watched all of yours now, so do more!!! I always love seeing your home.!!

    1. Thank you Kathy. I would love to hear what kind of videos you like best or would like to see me make.

  3. Patty,

    Enjoying your Fall decor and love all your videos. Since you are looking for videos ideas, I recall that you have a fabulous craft room. Perhaps a video tour?

    1. I have one in the works. I am working my purging and organizing around the house and it is on my radar very soon. I'll be sure to video for YouTube. I'm glad you're enjoying the videos.

  4. Your house looks so happy! I am one of those girls who is sad to see summer go. It's been in the 40's here at night, and cloudy and high on the mid 60's during the day. Fall weather for sure! Still, I've caved and partially embraced the season with a few fall touches. Seeing your photos makes me think I need to run out and get some fall colored reeses pieces! ;)
