Well, Howdy-do Sugar Pie! Boy oh boy! Can you believe Fall is here? Well, actually Autumn’s first day is September 23rd, but here at Sugar Pie Farmhouse Fall is in full swing! I’ve got my favorite Fall music playing in the background ( The Little Women Soundtrack!!….You can CLICK HERE TO LISTEN ON YOUTUBE…then come back and finish reading!) and my pumpkin candles are glowing and the aroma is delicious!
I’ve been working on getting my home all gussied-up with fall wonderfulness…pumpkins and all things “farmy”, to do my photo shoot for my Fall Home Tour. AND…I’ve been working long days on my Fall video “Let’s Celebrate Fall Y’all!”. Oh my goodness, this bundle of videos is jam packed with decorating ideas, recipes for my favorite fall treats and a little “cup ‘n saucer” chat with little Ol’ me. I’m still in the editing stage but hope to get it done soon! I can’t wait to share it with you!
If you haven’t signed-up to join my “Sugar Pie Sisterhood” to receive my emails notifying you about anything new (new blog posts, give-aways or new products) then you can find the email sign-up on the right side in the “Warm Pie, Happy Home” box…just look for the lady taking pie’s out of the oven and the little pink and brown polka-dot cup O’ coffee!
Here’s a sneaky peek of some of my fall decorating!! So, you know I’m a farmgirl wanna-be right? Well, see those wee little pumpkins? They came from my own little pumpkin patch! YES-SIR-REE BOB! Can I get a YEE HAW? ;D
“The cheerful joyous season,
The Autumn time is come.
With song and shout we welcome
The Golden Harvest Home.”
Here’s a peek at my little O’ booth at Spring Creek Antique Mall and Tea Room! Lot’s of yummy fall candles, and farmhouse goodies! Yes, that is a cow head in the left hand corner! I think it’s one of those things that you love it or not-so-much!! Hee hee! He actually looks very handsome hanging on the wall with a boxwood wreath around his neck. But I love all things farmy so I love ‘em!
Here’s a closer look at Mr. Cow head…nestled in some hay (in case he gets hungry…hee hee!) in an old dresser drawer with new milk bottles and a vintage mini muffin pan. Got a good name for my cow? Share in the comments below!
Mini chalkboard signs I painted. These little unfinished sign ornaments come with the rope hangers and can be found at Michaels Craft store. I used black chalkboard paint and a white paint marker for the designs.
Here’s a little peek of the Tea Room just beyond my booth. If you EV-AH come to Branson, Missouri you must go to Spring Creek Tea Room in Ozark for lunch! Homemade yumminess! Have your cake and eat it too! Heaven on a fork I tell ya!! Just keep in mind that the tea room is closed on Sunday’s and Monday’s.
Ummmm….I kinda wanna marry that Dinner Bell Farm sign! Someday when I build my little white farmhouse I’m gonna name it Dinner Bell Farm! LOVE IT!!! (It’s new…and girl, you know I got one for myself since I love it so much I wanna marry it! And Mr. Cow head too….that’s why I need your help naming him!!)
One last peek…my corn cob flicker candles nestled in some burlap and straw tucked in a rusty old bed spring! I’ve had several of you darlin’s ask if I sell online and my answer sadly is not right now. This mama has too many pots on the fire as it is. I’m hoping some day! But I did link to some of the items that can be found on Amazon. (Affiliate links)

“During these golden day’s, we want nothing more than to be home again.”
Darlin,’ as we enter this glorious golden season and as we begin busying ourselves in preparation for the holiday’s around the corner, let us be mindful of our blessings! Let’s be intentional about giving thanks to the Lord for providing all that we need. Let’s take time to say prayers with our family especially around the supper table and bedtime. Let’s give thanks for the things that we sometimes take for granted…a roof over our head, warm bed to sleep in, food on the table, our loved ones, good health. God is good and greatly to be praised!
Come ye thankful people come,
Raise the song of harvest home!
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God our Maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied:
Come to God’s own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.
Let’s put the “sweet” back in Home Sweet Home and make coming home a happy thing for our family. When we make the effort to cozy up our home and fill it with an atmosphere that glows with the celebration of the season, it is a gift to our family and those who come to visit. It’s those extra little things we do, to create a feeling of warmth and whimsy, joy and goodness, that communicates a message to our family that says: you are loved and it is my pleasure to make you feel nurtured and cared for. It’s a message that hugs the hearts of those we love and it gives them a delicious affection for home. We must never underestimate the importance of providing a loving environment for our family, it sets the stage for happy memories that will last a lifetime. We can do this and have fun doing it!! Blessings will abound!
Well Sugar, it won’t be too long before you hear back from me! I hope all is well with you! I pray for you by name when you leave a comment and I pray for you even though you don’t leave a comment (‘cuz God knows your sweet name!). The Lord knows your needs and heartbreaks and He loves you more than you can imagine…so do I!
HAY! Be sure to say howdy and share a name for Mr. Cow head!
(He needs a name!! “Mr. Cow head” just doesn’t have a ring to it!)
I’m sending you lots of Sugar and hugs!!
Your Aunt Ruthie
