Change of Season

'To everything there is a season,
 and a time for every
purpose under heaven."  
Ecclesiastes 3:1

You can always feel the seasons begin to change, the crisp
mornings, maple trees turn red, poplars to yellow, leaves 
blowing in the wind, fall jackets, gray skies, maybe fog and
then rain here in the northwest.

A visit to the pumpkin farm, making caramel apples with my
grandchildren and their friends, baking and painting cookies
and all the other fun traditions that the new season brings.

I try to decorate my house a little bit for each season.....
 The fall colors blend together so beautifully.

This ornate retro 50's vase, and the gold partridge,
surrounded by glass grape vines...

Crystal boboche's for candle stands give
a touch of elegance

This pretty little pitcher

They all fit onto this lovely antiqued shelf above my buffet...
And below,

is this cute little turkey basket, I don't even remember
where I got it, but the children really like it.

Oh, and don't forget the tiny, soft amber lights
on my buffet....gotta have those!!!


  1. I love the shelf. It has a lot of character.
