A Little Bit of Fall

Hello, Dear Ones!
My laundry is all washed and put away
and I've milked resting as long as I can.
I have done nothing for Fall at my house so thought I would share with you some Fall I saw on my trip.

 Isn't this so Fall?
We saw this darling pun'kin patch in a parking lot no less. :)

 Lots of pun'kins but there were ghosts flying around among them.
Now don't be scared.

 Pun'kins, mums and ghosts!
It's October y'all! :)

 I thought this was a lovely little spot.

 Oh, and the scarecrows! 
There's a cute one.

I think there may have been a scarecrow convention going on or something! :)

 Now this was an absolutely darling bakery.
I had to snap the front for you.

 I know this is a bit blurry but I was snapping through the glass.
Look at the darling Fallen cakes!

Isn't this a great hutch ~ so large!!
Someone did a great job dressing it up too.
I must tell you, Mr. Precious got an eclair and I got a brownie that were so delicious.

I loved all of these darling little gourds all carved for Fall and Halloween.
Did I buy one for moi? No, no Nannette, I didn't and I'm regretting it. : (

Out in the Pennsylvania countryside, I spied this gorgeous red barn.
I just love red barns.

Lots of pretty flowers still making a glorious showing.

Then I snapped this darling little cow.
I'm not very farmified, but I believe this is a baby cow, a calf.
One thing I must tell you, she was very magical, because she was singing to me.
Can't you tell? :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Forever Autumn

The summer sun is fading
As the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now you're not here

I watch the birds fly South
Across the autumn sky
And one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them
Now you're not here

Like the sun through the trees
You came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

Through autumns golden gown
We used to kick our way

You always loved this time of year
Those fallen leaves lay undisturbed now

'Cause you're not here
'Cause you're not here
'Cause you're not here

Like the sun through the trees
You came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

A gentle rain pours softly on my weary eyes
As if to hide a lonely tear
My life will be forever autumn

'Cause you're not here
'Cause you're not here
'Cause you're not here
~ sung by The Moody Blues


  1. Oh my, the bakery and the painted gourds are definately my favorite of all the photos.

    thanks for taking us on your pumpkin tour via so many pretty pictures.

  2. Really like that red barn too! and the joy you had from that singing calf...yes, even this far...I could almost hear the song too :)

  3. What a neat bakery! Where's the line to get in!! It won't be long before you have your decorations up...but rest while you have a good excuse! ;-D


  4. Hi Sheila!
    Great post. I loved the fall tour and that hutch was to die for. I don't have my decorations up yet either and I have book club at my house next Monday. Better get crackin.
    Enjoy your week.

  5. What pretty Fall pics Sheila. We do not even have leaves changing here yet. I am patiently waiting.

  6. The cow looks like the cow from the Happy Cow, California dairy commercials!

    Glad you had such a good time away, fall is a wonderful time to see the sights.
    I am off on vacation today myself!

  7. Glorious pictures, what an awesome trip! I know you'll find time, now that the laundry is done, to decorate with your own fallen beauty. Hugs ~ Mary

  8. Oh what beautiful pics! I LOVE anything fall.

  9. Great Fall inspiration! I especially like the autumn decorated baked goods! So glad you are home safe and sound! :)

  10. Oh I just love all of these great Fall pics you shared. I have one of those Halloween gourds that light up. I forgot that I had it. I should get it out soon I guess. I haven't really done much at my house either. The mood hasn't hit me this year yet. I know you are still getting settled after being away, so you have a valid excuse! Ha!

  11. Shelia,
    All beautiful shots. I love seeing all the pumpkins and corn.

  12. I have whiskey barrel planter like in your photo. I could set pumpkins and a mum pot in them. Great ideas there. Thanks, Shelia.

  13. Shelia, your pictures are gorgeous. I would love to take a trip to Pennsylvania this time of year.

  14. Beautiful photos Shelia! I love all the pumpkin and scarecrow displays. Fun stuff. Have a great week! Thanks for visiting me and your sweet comment. Hugs, Pamela

  15. Shelia, I am inviting myself to go along on your next vacation because looking at these pictures I think we would have a fabulous time!! The cakes and goodies in the shop window look very pretty. I also like the round garden with the lion among the beautiful mums. I know you and Mr. Precious had a wonderful trip so don't forget me next time.-----------------

  16. What wonderful fall photos! It has been raining here the last couple of days. I am looking forward to getting out later this week and seeing some fall fun.

  17. Oh Shelia, I just love that adorable cow! She does look like she is singing! I love Pennsylvania. Beautiful photos. xo

  18. Shelia,
    I love all the photos you took, I am so in the fall mood right now....ready to go to a country farm, or pumpkin patch. What a fun trip. The bakery looks amazing. Thanks for sharing! XO ~Liz

  19. Looks like you had a blast, Shelia! I'm so glad. I can't wait for M. M to retire. Maybe the four of us can go on a cruise or something. It's a few more years yet, but I am looking forward to it.



  20. Shelia,
    Welcome home, dear friend!!! Oh I adore all the Fall photos you took along your trip! The "singing calf" made me think of The Happy Cow commercials of a few years back! Too cute! I agree...the calf was singing a song just for Shelia of Note Songs!!!

  21. What beautiful 'fallen' photos! I love those gourd jack-0-lanterns!
    hugs, Linda

  22. Such pretty pictures! I feel as though you've taken me along with you on your vacation! :D

  23. Hi Shelia,
    Thanks for sharing all of these wonderful photos. I love the pumpkin patch and that sweet bakery.
    The red barn and the sweet calf makes me want to head out to the pastures!

    Happy Fall.


  24. Dear Shelia, the bakery is darling. Always love a good pumpkin shot like these. xo, olive

  25. What a great post, Shelia! These pictures are fall at its best! The bakery is just wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing.

  26. Hi Sheila

    Where were you in PA? Looks wonderful!


  27. Hi Shelia, You did a great job of getting some awesome Fall pics for us. I adored the calf so much. You see I was a farm girl when I was a child and we lived on a dairy farm. Lots of calves to love. Farm life was so much fun. Fall was my favorite time of the year. Halloween was a trip to town where the stores outdid themselves to make it all so special. Fun memories. I loved the bakery and the lovely displays. Especially the hutch. Beautiful.
    I'm glad you are rested up.
    Love, Jeanne

  28. Great pictures Sheila! I love the picture of you and your Granddaughter in the next post too--so cute!


  29. I love red barns, too! Great photos from your trip, Sheila. Thanks os much for sharing with us! Everything was decorated so cute in Pennsylvania. :D I am finishing my Halloween decorating today!!!

  30. Sheila these are some great pictures. I especially love the pumpkin patch and corn. Now, if I could have heard that cow singing to you... ;)

  31. Love your Fall pics, Shelia! I also checked out your post on your daughter and Carter. They're both ADORABLE !! I know you look forward to your trip to Galveston at Christmas.

  32. Autumn is my favorite time of year, so I enjoyed seeing all the decorations you saw on your trip. The mums are so colorful! And that cow! How cute! Of course, I do have a thing for cows. :0)

  33. Beautiful photos Shelia. Isn't it an amazing sight to see hundreds of mum plants and pumpkins? I am always so in awe and then buy my few and they never quite look the same. Lovely outing.


  34. What a lovely trip with you looking at fall displays! Susan gave me the itch and you've given me great ideas! Thanks Shelia!

  35. Oh Shelia! There is always tomorrow for Fall Decor. :) Right? I just barely got mine done Saturday. I just had a little baby freak-out when I looked at the calender and realized that if I didn't get on the stick... I was going to miss the whole season! UGH!

    These are such cute pictures. I love that little bakery! So sweet.

    Hope you have a great week! :)


  36. YOU--you aren't finished decorating for fall? Well, now, the world is off its axis!

  37. Shelia,
    I just love your pumpkin patch post. I just recently went to a pumpkin farm. Aren't they wonderful? Your bright orange pumpkins made my day, and that pumpkin scarecrow is so sweet. I hope you are enjoying the Fall days. Oh, I have a thing for red barns too.

  38. Oh what amazing sights you've seen! That bakery is just the cutest! We've arrived in the mountains of NC and there's some color popping up here and there....and it sure feels cold! heehee! But we'll enjoy it here for a little while and I'll take my camera everywhere I go! lol I'm sure enjoying your Fall photos! Sweet hugs!

  39. That picture of the bakery looks like the cutest one I've ever seen!! Love this post!


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
