Hello!  We all are bustling around getting our little homes ready for autumn!  So much fun! 

I thought I would share with you a few images of my humble little home.  I woke up this morning to the sound of a soft rain outside my open window and a cooler breeze tickling around my face.  Such beautiful sounds, smells, and feeling!  I am home alone today and it feels really nice.  After a week of work on a new job, trying to learn the new computer system, their computer platform and procedures, it is nice to have the morning to myself to relax.  I immediately came down and put the coffee on and lighted candles throughout the house.  I am now enjoying the smell of pumpkin spice scents to go along with my coffee and cereal.  :)

The cottage musing quote I have picked today is very simple but it makes me think of what women like to do most and that is to make our homes cozy with our nesting....autumn nesting for this time of the year.  :)

"Love builds the strongest nest."

I am joining Tracey today; please stop over there and learn more "Weekly Words to Live By"!  :)
Also joining Tablescaper; be sure and join the other gals who are enjoying the beauty of the season!

May you enjoy a sweet day of rest and love! 

Hugs, Carolyn

I'm feeling cottage cozy just like you this morning! I enjoyed looking over your "fixins".

Dripdripdrip here at the cottage too. A perfect day for candles and pumpkins--enjoy your downtime.

And thanks for the quote inspiration! Besides being a wonderful sentiment, it just needs a great font, a page out of an old bird book and a vintage frame. For me? For a friend?
