AUTUMN JUST AROUND THE CORNER !


Our nights have been very cool in the past week....change is in the air and September 23 will be the first day of Autumn...




We all look forward to the changes in the colors of Autumn!  This week I found myself sitting at the table perusing my cookbooks and folders for fall recipes.  Pumpkins, squash, peppers,  all the late summer harvest items are wonderful this time of year.  I made a list of all the things I would like to cook and bake in the coming months!

Do you decorate your house for fall?  I love it! Sometimes it is just a matter of looking around for items you may have that are in "fall colors".

Lastly, I always look forward to working 1 hour less a day!  Yes, we close the store 1 hours sooner in the fall/winter and you would be amazed how much better that makes things - fixing dinner earlier is a special treat I'll never take for granted!  The links on my blog to "great food" blogs are fabulous!  Need some ideas for fall cooking - check them out!

Pretty fall inspirations, it is very fall like here in WA. But I am loving it. Clarice

I love your scarecrow! I saw at a craft show a few years back beautiful scarecrows made from vintage clothing. I sure wish I could have afforded one at the time. Seeing yours made me remember these adorable creations. Each one was made with their own unique personality and given a name to fit. Thanks for rejogging my memory.

OUR WEATHER HAS BEEN COOL AND BREEZY, I LOVE IT. I SAT ON THE PORCH TODAY IN MY ROCKING CHAIR, AND CROCHED FOR A WHILE, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE, YOU COULD HEAR THE BIRDS, AND THE BUTTERFLY BUSH HAD SO MANY BUTTERFLYS AND HUMMINGBIRDS TODAY. I SEE A FEW RED, ORANGE AND YELLOW LEAVES ON CERTAIN TREES. YES FALL IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. HAVE A NICE DAY, RIZZI

Hello Bernideen - My favorite season of the year has arrived! Your china, linens and decorations are beautiful. I started decorating, and I will have to get some photos up on my blog soon. The weather in Pittsburgh, PA has been a bit cooler, thankfully. A bunch of my best friends just left for Paris. I am a bit depressed. That is one of the top places that I absolutely have to visit in the world before I die. That's okay -- in about 3 weeks Pennsylvania will be absolutely stunning with all the colors of autumn. I'm sure the Rockies are so gorgeous in the fall. I'll look forward to more of your beautiful photos. Be Well and Happy -

Your store looks delighful Bernideen. No I do not decorate for Autumn, since the children grown even decorating for Christmas seems a chore! People do not decorate here outside of Christmas.
