Last week was my virtual monthly dinner club and we hosted a chowder cook-off.

We each made a different recipe and they all sound so good!

Here is my rustic fall table I created for our chowder dinner in case you missed it.



And I made roasted corn and shrimp chowder, and you can see and print the recipe here.

And this week, I joined in with a group of Instagram friends and created a simple fall tablescape using things I already had on hand.

And lastly, I shared 11 ways to decorate with dried hydrangeas for fall.

It has been a crazy busy week getting finished up with my fall decorating, and a few projects I’m working on.

I just love the fall season! The change in the weather after a brutal hot summer in Texas is such a welcome relief.

I love the crisp mornings and enjoying coffee on my front porch, shopping for pumpkins, the smell of my favorite fall candle and anticipating the first fire in our outdoor fireplace.

I was honored to do an interview and fall home tour with Farmhouse Living a couple of weeks ago. You can see the tour by clicking the link above.

and some other amazing things I found…..

These pumpkin scones with candied pecans look amazing and I can’t wait to try them….

this screened porch decorated for fall and the cutest shiplap tree…..

and this pumpkin butter board…..

this beautiful book that my friend Leslie at My 100 Year Old Home just published….

and my new favorite shoes…..

I hope you found some inspiration at our Saturday Morning Gather today!

blessings and have a wonderful weekend,
