When the weather starts to get cooler in the fall and we start dressing in layers, I like to do the same with our bedding. This year, I have several layers starting with a top sheet and then a lightweight quilt. Next is a very soft and snuggly blanket followed by my toile comforter at the foot of the bed. Now we're ready for those chilly nights. Adding the light brown tones of the pillows and blanket creates a warmer feeling too, I think. Here are a few more changes I made in the room to tie in with the bedding. I love these wood frames that are from Target. I added some prints I already had and placed them above the dressers one each side of the bed. In this corner, I placed my black wicker rocking chair with plump pillows and a basket.  We really needed more lighting in this room, so I purchased a  floor lamp for this corner as well.

Hi Everyone, Since the kids went back to school, I have been motivated to do some cleaning and organizing that I didn't get to over the summer.  Nothing exciting, but it feels good to have my house back in order.  I know you can all relate. I would like to share my one gardening success this summer before it's too late. At the end of May, I planted white geraniums in the planters on our front porch. They get lots of sunshine here and I gave them some Miracle Gro a couple times. Other than that, just lots of water and they are happy campers, growing like crazy. I snip off the blooms when they start turning brown so the plants energy can go into making more flower buds. I hope they last a while longer.  As soon as we have a frost, that will be it for this year. So I'm going to enjoy them as long as I can. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! • • • joining • • •   MY ROMANTIC HOME ~ SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY SIMPLY SWEET
