Wonderful October!

October is just flying by. 
I realized it has been a busy month when I was scrolling through the pictures on my phone.  I thought I'd share them with you.

We went with friends to Kenny Loggins at our Levitt Pavillion. 
It was a fantastic show! 
It was so much fun hearing songs we've loved for years. 
It was a great night with great friends. 

Our neighborhood got together for National Night Out. 
The weather was perfect!
I painted the tile in the powder room.

We headed out to the lake to help put the jets skies and the boat away for the winter. 
It's a sad day for me. I love the summer! 
Someone was super excited about the last boat ride of the season. 

 The weather was gorgeous. 
We had been having a crazy heat wave but it cooled down by the weekend.

I felt like I was being watched. 

It was pumpkin day at school. 
I got a pie pumpkin for the kids to see and smell and then cooked it when I got home.

I made Paula Dean's pumpkin cake. 
It is interesting to me that this cake is a golden color instead of the orange that you get from puree out of a can.

I won't be doing any Christmas decorating until after Thanksgiving, but I've picked my color scheme. 

We purged a great deal of our old Christmas stuff this summer. 
I replaced some of our old trees with a new all white tree.
I also found some white garlands. 
I shop early for Christmas decor to get the best selection.
The thrift store was getting out a few things this morning. 
I found this adorable vintage ornament in a blush color. 

I found a shabby chic tree at Hobby Lobby. 
 I've wanted a shabby chic bottle brush tree for years.
A little cottage got a makeover with pink paint and glitter. 

This little guy got a makeover too. 

That is about it for now.
Can you believe that it is almost Halloween? 
It's almost time to put the orange away and dig out some turkeys.

  1. Good morning Katie. Oh my, I just love your ideas for Christmas. I need to get to HL to see if they still have those little bottle brush trees. It looks Vintage. Now you have me wanting to start digging out Christmas decoration. Thanks for the inspiration. I really appreciate you stopping by Timeless Treasures.
