It stuns me how women in the USA ring the seasonal changes in their decor! Here in the Land of Oz we don't do this to the same extent. Your decorations are wonderful. I particularly like the basket of gourds.

Blessings and bliss

Dear Betty..... ‘And a Happy Fall to You too’

What a lovely ‘Show & Tell’ you’ve given us this week. It’s been a delight to see your decorations, you are so creative and have a good eye for putting colours together. I’ve always enjoyed the way you folk in US decorate for the season. Such a pity that here in UK we don’t, except for Christmas that is. Maybe I should start the trend!

Like others have commented before, I adore your squash swag. Now tell me, for how long do you keep these decorations on show?

As always, I loved another glimpse into your kitchen and its nice to see the mail box where my letters are delivered. Have a good day. Its a glorious morning here. I’m off to my keep fit class shortly and then the garden will probably call me this afternoon. Blessings Dear Friend - Marion

Yhanks for your kind comments. There will be much much more story as I can get it down. After all there is nearly 70 years worth!!

nannykim said...

It is all beautiful--mums are so cheerful and I have found that they often turn color. We have had some for a year and they are in their 3rd blooming and they keep changing their color--very weird!!

Morning Glory said...

Those are all so pretty and festive. The colors of autumn really are rich!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Thank you for your comment on my Mayo photos. Sounds like you've had a lot of family heartaches.

We're hoping this is my husband's last week of radiation. Thanks for your well wishes.

Barbara said...

Glad you like the travelogue, there will be many more.
I have been having another look at your display - the vitamins make it more authentic!
Got me rememebring that back in 1994 I was given a packet of seeds in the US for ornamental gourds. They grew so well in my garden but I was not really sure what to do with them when harvested so I just put them in a large bowl on the sideboard. Seeing yours I see they could make a wonderful swag.

Kathy B said...

Can you come decorate my house? Please

Sharon said...

What beautiful fall decorations! I really, really love the gourd wreath.....did you make it? If so, can you tell me how? Are they fresh or fake? So pretty....I might have to copy your idea! :0)

Blessings to you! Sharon
