If I bring out orange will the heat go away?

So, I crawled up in the attic to look for fall stuff.  Some fun parties coming up.
This is my attic.

Yes, I just threw the ice chest and suitcases up there, it is in at a  weird angle that I can't reach, geez.

I'm looking for anything orange....

Good insulation huh?

That's what I need the orange tub... when I think I am really organized, I color code my plastic containers by the holiday color.

This piece needs TLC, his head fell off from the heat of the attic, I should use nails not hot glue.  You think I would have learnt that lesson over the last three years.

I can use this metal beauty right away, no jack o lantern eyes, very rustic.

Fitz and Floyd cuties.

This picture is to make you want to come back to see what she is, makes me want to clean the pantry.

So one pretty area down, one orange plastic tub and the rest of the house to go.

It is just a start, I will get there.
K plate - Dillard's
Pumpkin candlesticks - Fitz and Floyd
Tray - Ross
Fleur de lis chopping board - gift
Little night light lamp - Pier One
Coffee cup - daughter brought home from college - super studying sized

 We have two daughters who are teachers and they were sad to see summer time off go away.  I do have to drive through a school zone to get to work making my commute 30 seconds longer.  So, even though this is our first year with NO tuition,  (after 7 years of three girl's in college), I do know school has started, which means..... fall and cooler temps around the corner.

If you got this far into reading this post, you might have noticed that my blog has some movie references.  The first person to locate them all, comment with the movie names will get a fall gift in the mail.  But, not if you have no-reply set for your comment reply emails.  I really don't like those and plus won't know how to contact you for your mailing address.  HINT - they are all on the home page.

Happy Fall Y'all.

  7. I hope you are right... if you bring the orange out- the heat will go away! I live in Florida and already dragged out some of the autumnal colors a month ago!

  8. I sure hope the orange helps, it's well into the 90's and humid again in Philly!
    Ok, I had to try your movie challenge, I see The Wizard of Oz and Jerry Maguire... are there more?
