More Fall Decorating to Share

Yesterday was a slow paced day. I spent the morning working in the shed to start some of the displays but I was kinda waiting for a delivery before I did too much. I knew it was to come but I never know when it will arrive. After a few hours, the rain started pouring and it made it impossible to move between the buildings.
So I decided to work inside my home just cleaning and sweeping and putting things away. I finished the laundry and dishes and I even did a little organizing too.
I have not started to put any fall in my home (well, very little) I just wanted to clean and organize first. I have a few craft projects that I would like to finish. I decided to work in my craft room but honestly, it was so terrible because my hubby had replaced our air conditioner and he had left the old one sit in the middle of the room...for the last month. :(  So yesterday I decided I would try to move it with a hand truck and girl power. Now this is one of the those old heavy, large air conditioners. We have lived here since 2000 and this is the first time we have replaced it so massive would describe it pretty well. With a little determination and a lot of will power I moved that heavy, ugly thing. I took it around to the back of his shed because I didn't want it in view for our customers at the next sale. I was kinda proud of myself and that inspired me to work for about 2 hours in that room. I found another craft that I will need to finish and that inspired as well.
When hubby got home we worked on a cherry hutch that I have been working on for a friend. It is just beautiful and I will post pictures of it once we put all the doors and back pieces together. We were putting chicken wire on the doors yesterday and we are hoping to have it delivered this weekend. I need the space to begin working on the furniture for our Christmas open house which will be in November.
I hope you are enjoying a few pictures from the shop  and I hope to have much more to share in a few days. Enjoy your day, I am heading to meet my Sister today for some much needed fun. Blessings to each of you.

oh my goodness you are so lucky you didn't strain your back lifting that air conditioner...but good for you! We gals can do most anything if we stick to it long enough.
You have such a knack for decorating and putting just the right things together, no wonder your shop is a success.
I can't think of Fall yet - we're still waiting for some honest to goodness Summer here. Hot one day, very cold the next.
Blessings
