Autumn home continued. . .

Here's a few more snapshots of Autumn around our home.

The first thing I display every Fall is this darling pumpkin made by my niece when she was in high school. Makes me smile and feel at home.

I think deep orange tones compliment blue so amazingly, like Autumn leaves against the blue, blue sky.  
Like my comfy throw against the blue couch. Many a nap is taken snuggled under it!

More fun pumpkin treasures. I look for natural toned or deep orange colors instead of Halloween oranges.

Love this cute little box that I use for napkins.

I used to collect tea cups and saucers, not so much anymore. But I've kept some seasonal ones to enjoy on display.

This flower handled set is a favorite.

Old, old Royal Albert Maple Leaf cream and sugar.

My niece and I both like to have seasonal books in a basket. (How do you like my "hardwood" floors, heheh!)

There are a few flowers left in the cutting garden for the table.

I did make the table runner (machine quilted by Anne Jones). 

And I am taking notes on which dahlias were excellent cut flowers and which I'd like to replace.  Deep purple (like the wedding flowers - gorgeous!) and a rich orange bloom.

Maybe next year I'll even grow pumpkins!


  1. You are amazing! You are a natural artist! You are to be commended for being such a beautiful "keeper at home." I admire you and wish I had 1/4 of your creativity. I love your house and your spirit and wish I lived closer to you!!! Love YOU more than all the above!

  2. Cynthia, you and your family need to move here - you make me feel so talented and loved! We would be fast friends for sure. Thanks you so much! I love you, too (what an awesome wedding weekend we had, oh my)!

  3. I need more pumpkins in my life!

    Thanks for "stopping by" this morning. Sorry if my bread was a diet buster:)

  4. Heather, thank you for stopping by, too! Go get some pumpkins and I'll make the bread :)
