Fall Fun With Instagram

It has been


here for the last week!!

The colors are at their peak here and they are gorgeous!
I can't remember when they have been so vibrant like this. I love living in the woods this time of year.
It is supposed to get cooler towards the end of the week and windy as well so I am sure that the leaves will start falling quickly, in which I am not as happy living in the woods. :)

We got out some this weekend in between a soccer game, volleyball tourny and work so I played around with the fall colors and the Instagram app on my iphone.

I really heart this app!!!!

I haven't done a whole lot as far as the bonus room but I did manage to do a few rows with the graining tool and it is looking ok. The biggest problem is the plywood is rough so I don't get a smooth finish like the sample board I had but it will work.

I am taking a bit of a computer break this week to enjoy the rest of the great weather and get some things done outside and just enjoy my favorite season.
I hope you all have a great week and I will see you soon!!!

fall is my favorite season, i can't believe you are already peaking... we don't until late nov, i love to watch the whole country turn as it moves out west.

your pics and music capture the feeling i so love in the afternoon autumn golden light.

Gorgeous photos. I live in a climate where it is either dry or wet season - Oh how I miss fall! I wish I could run down that road and kick up all the leaves :) Enjoy your week.

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

Gorgeous Michigan photos!!! Your line about the leaves after they fall was funny - I remember as a kid the leave raking days. My neighbors down the street lived on a pennisula - you wouldn't believe the amount of leaves! Have a great week!

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

What great photos. I will I had some of those gorgeous leaves! That apps looks like so much fun. Might be a good thing I don't have one. I would get addicted to it really quick.

Yanet @ 3 Sun Kissed Boys said...

What gorgeous colors, Michelle! I have the same app but not the beautiful fall oranges to go with it.

Green Willow Pond said...

Lovely pictures Michelle! I am loving this weather. I've been outside as much as possible working in my garden and flower beds, getting everything ready for winter.

I'm sitting here tonight with the window open beside me, can you believe it? I prayed for a nice Indian summer, because I felt like summer just passed me by, so I'm taking advantage of every day this week!

Enjoy the rest of this week. {{{hugs}}}

Desire Empire said...

Love your shots of autumn. The blury edges look fantastic and looking at them with the background music is lovely.

Have a great break

I cannot believe this is where you live. Those look like scenes out of a movie!!! So pretty...

Jenni said...

Michelle, those pictures are amazing! I especially heart the one of the bench! You live in such a gorgeous area! :) I have never heard of Instagram before, but I love the dreamy effect you created with it in your photos! :)

I know your floor is going to turn out so cool, by the way! I was so amazed by how realistic the graining tool made the wood look!

I hope you have a great week, as you enjoy a little time off!

Oh my gosh Michelle...your photos are just beautiful! They are the definition of Autumn! said...

Incredible Michelle. I love that app too, it's soooo easy to use, and the pictures turn out amazing.

Your fall pictures look just as beautiful as I would imagine they could. I love this time of year too, just beautiful. The next few weeks, are my absolute favorite, not too hot, not too cold, cool breezes, leaves changing colors, windows open, misty rain outside, oh man, I could do on and on.

My favorite picture was the bench, it is just so pretty!!

Glad you are well my friend. Wish I could stop by more often to say HI,,,, but I'm always happy when I do. :)

Hugs, Bella said...

Oh and I love your new header :)
