Over the past couple of weeks the temperature has dropped here in the mountains of western North Carolina. We've seen it as low as 43 degrees one morning. With the cooler temps I couldn't wait to start adding Pumpkin Spice creamer to my coffee in the mornings, decorating my home with fall decorations and painting all things fall(ish). I did stop for a bit to add mats to a cow print that I had printed from an original acrylic painting I painted back in 2015. Want one of these without the mat? Click here to purchase.
What are some of your favorite things to do when the cooler weather is here? Obviously, one of my favorite things is to paint, draw or design fall-themed pieces of art. But, I really enjoy taking in the festivals and such around western NC.
Yesterday, my son and I tagged along with my husband as he attended the NC Farm Bureau meeting in Fletcher, NC. It happened to be at the WNC Agriculture Center where the NC Mountain State Fair is held. Yesterday was opening day so after the meeting the three of us headed out to explore the Fair. It was fantastic! And stays true to the heritage of all things NC.

If you haven't made the trip to the NC Mountain State Fair I highly recommend you go. The Fair runs through Sept. 17. You won't be disappointed!
It's Fall Y'All!
