This morning we woke up to a brilliant blue sky and clean cool air with a hint of autumn crispness to it! Fall!
[Even the purty little cardinal boy checking in on our bird feeder seemed extra special excited this morning]
There are people who claim that there are just two seasons in Florida: hot and not so hot but really, up here in the northern corner (or South Georgia, as I have heard somebody call it) we have actually 4 season just like regular non-tropical folks. Granted, it may be warm enough to fire up the grill in December but we do get frost and sometimes even flurries during winter. Summers are scorching hot with thick humid air and hazy skies and fall and spring are simply brilliant with sunny days and cool nights.
See, I have my heart - kind of - set on a Roman shade made by yours truly from this killer fabric

It's graphic, it's clean and best of all it brings the color schemes of kitchen (yellow/white), dining room (aqua/white) and living room (grey/white) together.
That's a really difficult color combination when it comes to fabrics. Nothing else seems to really catch my eye, you know? This one here's kind of fun

and this one's not too shabby if a bit more subdued
