A touch of Fall And Summer's to do List~Complete?

I love fall. And I am very ready for it this year. September is not really fall in the deep South. It still gets pretty hot during the day. But I love to have the colors of fall around me so I started decorating already. I made two new wreaths. I had seen the Burlap Ribbon on another girl's blog (didn't get the name so I can't give her credit here). But hers turned out so pretty. I found it at Hobby Lobby.

I also put some touches on the mantle. I always change it with the seasons

and a few touches on a bookshelf and on the bar

Blogger wanted to load the pictures out of order for some reason today. But you get the general idea. Happy Fall Ya'll!

Summer to do List
We had quite a list of to do's on our summer list here they are, completed. The first thing before we hauled any bricks or lumber for other projects was rebuild the trailer. Rotten wood was removed with the help of the kid around the corner and I helped hubbie put new boards on the trailer. One job done!
The next job was getting the fountain up and running. Doesn't sound like much but hubbie wanted to paint it, then the bed had to be built,on a hill, electrical outlet installed, (under the little box on the left) then the fountain got up and running. I did get some plants put in around it and will put in more next spring. It looks really good.
Fence built to to form a parking area on the other side and hopefully grass will begin to grow on this side.

fixed up a sitting area in the backyard. Hubbie will build some kind of screen for the bomb.
In this area by the back door, we ripped out the ugly hedges and got it prettied up
Screen built to hide timers and hoses.
Destruction of back porch has begun. It still has a way to go~this is a WIP (work in progress).

New bench for front of the house so we can sit and enjoy the fountain.

So we got lots of stuff marked of the list but for some reason the list is no shorter!
