Fall touches around the condo!

I keep most of my Fall decorations here at our condo in the mountains.

It’s fun to enjoy some pretty things while we are here.

And most of my Fall things are the perfect color for our condo that is decorated in what we call ‘mountain colors’.

My sweet Pumpkin girl was made by my girlfriend, Pat at All is Bright…HERE ! I love her so much!

What are your favorite colors of Fall?

PS I had this post ready for the last day of the month but it sure seems frivolous when so many are suffering in our country right now. Our hearts go out to those in the path of the hurricane. We are praying for you all. God bless.

I just read one of my favorite blogs, Muddy Boot Dreams and I love what Jen wrote HERE! It’s perfect for today. Thanks Jen!

Barn Charm Photo

I’ve always wanted to take part in Barn Charm and we certainly see some neat old barns here in the mountains of North Carolina. Of course we also have winding roads and mountains and trees! Who knew it would be almost impossible to take photos of the wonderful old barns I see and love.

This one was taken while I was walking on a trail in Fletcher Park so I’m peeking through the trees and zooming all the way! lol

I’m joining Barn Charm HERE !

I love old barns, don’t you?

The Bend in the Road

We took a little drive after dinner and just as we ‘rounded the bend’ we saw this beautiful country church.

IPModThree21Oct

I wanted to put a pretty ‘country church’ quote on one of my photos but I had no idea how hard it would be to find one if you googled ‘country church’!

PMDSCN5757

One of best quotes I found didn’t apply to my photos but I like it so much that I’ll share it with you.

We’re enjoying our Autumn here in the mountains.

Do you still have some pretty Fall colors?

~Fall Harvest Days~

We went to the Agriculture Center for The 28th Fall Harvest Days “Antique Engine & Tractor Show”!

pmDSCN5923

Normally I would say this would not be my favorite craft show.

PMDSCN5907

But I can’t say that any more!

PMDSCN5908

It was awesome!

PMDSCN5936

Nice weather…

PMDSCN5931

PMDSCN5925

PMDSCN5956

It just doesn’t get any better than that!

PMDSCN5960

Have you ever been to a Tractor Parade?

PMDSCN5957

Me neither!

PMDSCN5961

I’m pretty sure it wasn’t even on my bucket list, but it sure was fun!

PMDSCN5964

Enjoy your weekend!

PMDSCN5921

Have FUN!

PMDSCN5917

PMDSCN5815

OKOK…I can take a hint!

PMDSCN5819

AAAahhhh…

‘included’…

to have to swim alone!

PMMaleDSCN5810

To be the odd man out…

or in this case the odd duck out! lol

PMDSCN5799

(Photos taken at Fletcher Park while I was supposed to be walking for exercise! But with beauty like this, I had to take photos…to say nothing of the fact that the ducks were talking. How often does THAT happen? heehee!)
