Woo's At The Door....3 Step Fall Wreath

There's no telling who you will find greeting you at the door around Duke Manor , it could be one of 5 barn cats, 5 fish, 3 dogs, 3 kids, 1 pony, 1 donkey, 2 crickets, 1 chicken or..... an owl.

Monday Musings

It's fall break this week and the family is beyond excited. We are finally getting to do something that I had to postpone last winter when we were snowed in, then again cancel in the Spring because Lily broke her foot, and again cancel over the summer because dad had a business trip. The kids still don't think it's gonna happen....but it is, even though....there is rain in the forecast. I am handy, I will build a boat if I have to!

Fall Tour....Indoors


Just as the autumn leaves will soon be flying around every where outside, there's a little bit of fallacious going on once you come inside these doors.

My Entry Way...and New Gallery Wall


Well, after approximately 237 nail holes ( I officially stopped counting after 100 so it could be more then that), 12 bogo frames from Michael's and a botanical book that I got here .....I have a botanical gallery wall in the front entry that I have been wanting to create for some time now.

Oh.... How the years will fly with Capri Suns


Ahhh, It seems like just yesterday I was sending them off to nursery school for the first day of school......



and in a blink of an eye and what seemed to be a second... out the door to 1st grade... and with smiles on their faces.

Fall Tour ...Outdoors

I am not sure who created the saying 'Silence is Golden' but I will abide by that mantra today and take you through what Fall looks like outdoors, around our property all still, quite and beautiful..... because isn't that what nature offers us. 
Ahh...Fall. 
If you are new to Top This Top That, Welcome and know that I am not a big fan of that golden rule. Are you?
