The best coffee on Martha's Vineyard or anywhere for that matter, per Matt Muenster? https://www.facebook.com/MattJMuenster/photos/a.1...

If only we could each get an in-person tour of Urban Oasis 2014 -- just to make sure of our favorite room choices!

Yes, Fall is definitely here. The temps have dropped into the 90's around my hometown, and so while there's no frost on the pumpkins and the palm fronds will hold their color year-round as they wave in the gentle breeze, somewhere the tree leaves are surely beginning their seasonal transition from a canvas of deep greens to a vibrant multi-colored forest woven with threads of yellows, gold, burnt orange, rust browns and rich reds.

Thankfully, I will be leaf-peeping in New England and Canada soon, joining the droves of tourists and locals alike to wonder at the miracles of nature and the joy of the seasons.

The only question left to answer: should I go for the pumpkin pie with whipped cream, or opt for á la mode? http://blog.hgtv.com/design/2014/09/29/mood-board-monday-hello-fall/

Poor Matt! His note last night on Facebook? He's "stuck in a hotel on Martha's Vineyard without the DIY channel!"

I can understand -- to some degree -- but he is, after all, on Martha's Vineyard, AND he gets to wander freely through every nook and cranny of the Dream Home today, so it's hard to feel too sorry for him!

I'll be scanning the horizon and combing the landscapes for any sign of fall foliage, twoTERRIERs. I'm sure the further north I get the richer will be the colors.

In the meantime, so much to do before our Dream Home gets fully dressed up and ready for company!

I just had to check the UO Sweepstakes winner drawing date. Thank goodness it's not until around Oct 21, with the winner being notified in early November. I was afraid I'd come back from my cruise and find an "I'm sorry we missed you" note from HGTV on my front door! That would have put an immediate damper on my vacation memories.

It's hard to imagine an allergy to cotton, alicesoneysmom, since I'm always careful to avoid synthetic fabrics when I can, so going in the opposite direction would be quite a challenge.

I'm sure the vet has given you suggestions for Soney and you'll do lots of online research as well, but I'd think most importantly, his sleeping area would need to be made of or covered with 100% synthetic material or sheeting/blankets such as microfiber polyester.

Terri and I hope you're able to tame Soney's cotton allergy little by little, a step at a time, until it's fully resolved and he can spend his time happy, healthy and playful.

twoTERRIERs comment about the joys of Martha's Vineyard all year-round (along with Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons') inspired me to seek out island photos that beautifully evoke each change in the weather:
