By now I usually have changed things around to reflect fall, but somehow time has passed and summer slipcovers are still in place.  We will be leaving this house soon, so I see no reason to struggle with putting fall slips on.  Call me lazy, but leaving the sofa and chairs as is will make the spring return easier.

  1. Linda, your touches of fall are perfect. I know you hate to leave your paradise, but the seasons change so quickly as I am older it seems. Before you know it spring will be here and you get to return.
