Looks Like Autumn, Feels Like Summer!

It is SO hot here right now and up to 90 by Friday, this is suppose to be Autumn in the Midwest, but feels like Summer, yuck! How am I suppose to be sipping hot apple cider in this weather? My tan has faded and I packed up my summer things a week ago! I refuse to put my white legs back into my little summer skirts!! Guess I need to break out the bottle.... of fake tan that is! Denial isn't working to make the heat go away. Darn it!!
The Covered Bridge Festival starts next weekend and I am hoping it cools off for that. I used to set up at it for the 12 days but now I am going for the fun of it with my mom, dad and sister. We never get to do anything just the 4 of us. It ought to be a good time! I will have to make sure I take pictures to show you!
This is just a few of the fall displays in and around the store. I will be working on my Halloween displays soon. That is always fun dragging out my vintage Halloween decorations!

Looks lovely as usual. So, if I can't save enough money to put an offer on your trailer, what about joint ownership? ;D

It's going to be hot here too this week. Close to 90 on Thursday! What the heck is that all about?? I can tell you it wasn't 90 on my wedding day - which was a good thing. We'll end up going from summer to winter this year. PA is beautiful but it can suck!

I love the decorations. And I really love that swing all cozied up. What a great idea!

I can't remember ever having such warm weather in October here in the Midwest! It's really unbelievable. Well, maybe we'll actually like the snow this year =) Blessings... Polly

Oh Michelle, Now I have to go decorate my swing for Fall. We have a swing just like that (still has the old decals on it) hanging in the old walnut tree out front. We put it up for our grand-daughter. I love it. Thank you for the inspiration!

We are just the opposite here. It had been hot as blazes and I was so envious of everyone in blog land who were setting up autumn displays and enjoying cool temps. Now finally it is cooling off here and I am in the mood for pumpkins and cider:)
Hopefully your heat wave won't last long.
Enjoy the festival and lots of pictures please:)

Love your Fall displays, the swing is adorable. Have fun with your family at the festival --- hope Mother Nature brings cooler weather your way soon.

Oh,your trailer is darling, and your kitty looks happy with it too. Enjoy, Linda
