I feel fall coming on…

some autumn yard and garden clean-up and possibly a Sunday d.i.y. project.  Today was the first day here in the Philly area that I had to wear a jacket and it was the perfect cool and breezy morning for a cappuccino and pumpkin scone on the way to work…a wonderful friday treat.

We are renting out our ‘old’ house until it sells (the renters move in next weekend) so we’ll spend some time tomorrow morning getting the yard and garden all tidy for their arrival.  I will be sad to say goodbye to my summery tomato plants, but I think their time has officially ended.

Fall is a great time for some deep-cleaning around the house and for seasonal projects.  I like this fall chore checklist by Organized Home.  Honestly, I NEVER get through an entire list like that.  I would have to take a week off of work!  But it’s a good reminder of some of the important items to take care of.  Here’s another good checklist by This Old House.  And before winter officially arrives, why not try out this home energy saving checklist by Lowe’s.

Remember this chair?  Well instead of the Joel Dewberry fabric I was considering, I decided to go with Amy Butler’s Lotus fabric in Yellow Full Moon from purl soho.  And it arrived today!  Once I get it covered, we can stop calling it the ‘bird poo’ chair.  (they are actually paint drips, not poo)
