Late Fall In East Texas

Hi, Friends, 
How are you? 
We just spent a couple of days in East Texas. 
It was wonderful to show our property to our eldest and spend time with him. 
We had a magical walk in the woods as a storm rolled in. 
As it poured, I did a little un-decorating of the orange fall stuff and redecorated for late autumn. 

It was all quite cozy. 

Our Friendly Village dishes are kept in East Texas. 
Black and green linens from the Hearth and Hand line decorate the table. 

I bought it the first year that Joanna Gains' line was at Target. 
I also got a spool of the plaid ribbon. I've kicked myself that I didn't get more of it. 

One day we hope to have a family Thanksgiving out here. A vintage ceramic turkey planter is waiting for that day. 

The buffalo check fabric came from Joanns. I stitched it up into pillows. 
I need to get some more. It adds such a darling cabin touch. 

If you have followed, you know how much I love vintage needlepoint. It's so perfect for fall and winter. 

Plaid has emerged from a summer slumber. 

Bill and Chris ran some errands. They brought me a few Christmas trinkets from the hardware store. 
It's almost that time of year. 

The garden is overgrown. A freeze was expected but it didn't transpire. I've left everything for the pollinators although the beds look very scraggly.  

We have some dead trees to deal with in the woods. 
I have come to realize that reality will be ongoing in the coming years. 
The pines are struggling out here. 

Texas A&M has put out a lot of helpful information. 

We have a little color. I won't be out for a few weeks so I hope I don't miss the peak season. 

Please have a look at the video. I'm trying to create what I like to watch. YouTube seemed to like it and push it but my last video was a dud so now I'll learn all about the correct times to upload.
 That is why I resisted making videos because it seemed exhausting to learn about optimization and algorithms all over again. 
Putting this post was fun and so was making the video. That's what it should be about. 

That's all for now. 
Have a great day. 


  1. Time for plaid, YAY! Love the dark green and black Buffalo Check, and all the wonderful needlepoint pillows. I'm like you and removed most of the orange accents for late Fall. Your woods look so pretty and a wonderful place for a hike. Happy November.
