Ushering in a Change of Seasons

a little sneak peak of things to come

Long time no blogging, I know.  It's good to have my computer back even if it's for the weekend.  I've been a little busy bee.  Between trying to set up my house and shopping for a dress for my dd to be in a wedding life has been hectic.  I've been on here and there checking out all of your blogs when I can though.  Fall has arrived in IN and my new big house gets a little chilly.  My husband is trying to get that figured out as soon as he can.  Meanwhile, I learned an important lesson make sure your seasonal totes get moved with your stuff when you are experiencing a change of season.  I love the warm and cozy feeling of my old hooded sweaters.  I got those back this weekend too. 

We went to a beautiful wedding that I may share pictures with you later.  It was a dear friend of ours when we lived in MO, his daugher.  She's like a daughter to us too.  She asked my daughter to be a flower girl.  I found her a ivory colored dress and she looked so go grown-up.  The colors were an aqua or turquoise shade of blue with chocolate brown.  It may sound different but it was beautiful. 

Anyway, I had to leave with you a few pictures and a question.  What should I put on these enormous windows any ideas?? These ceilings are 9ft. tall, and the windows are about 71/2 ft.  My husband is standing to give you a reference. 

Have a blessed Sunday, enjoy your family and fall activities!



  1. Hi Carey, now I can't wait for pictures - the dress for your daughter sounds nice and I love the Aqua and Brown's very popular this season.
    Wow, huge window...wish I had an answer. I'm a simple kind of gal when it comes to window treatments. No draperies for me....just the lightest nothing curtains if any. So sorry I'm no help.

  2. I guess it depends on how much privacy you want in that area, I love Tabbaco Cloth Curtains..Tobacco cloth is a lightweight,
    thin loosely woven fabric with cotton
    in plain weave similar to cheesecloth.
    Used as shade covering for tobacco plants,
    crinoline, tea bags, bandages
    and curtains etc...
    Tobacco cloth is a very old fabric
    with a lot of whimsy.
    Try hanging cloth on jute instead of a rod.
    A great primitive look!

  3. I can't wait to see the wedding photos, it does sound beautiful.
    I really don't know what to tell you about the windows, sorry.
    God bless

  4. Hi Carey! Glad your settling in. Those windows are fabulous, and let in a lot of natural light it appears. Nice fireplace too!
