Rosie’s new friend

Rosie's new friend

Rosie curled up with Great Niece Keanna, after all the Halloween Party fun.
Rosie even got a glow necklace for the party!
Can’t wait till next year!

Autumn in darker shades

Autumn in darker shades

I still will stop and gather pretty leaves while out walking around the garden.
I even tucked a few into some pages of a book to press–perhaps for a future little project.

October Garden Goodness

October garden

The garden has provided pretty Autumn touches for the dining room.
Dried papery hydrangea, a vintage crock full of red and orange rose hips, and a bowl of mini pumpkins and corn.
Against a backdrop of an old, well used cutting board my decorating is done–at least in this room!

Welcome October

Welcome October

I welcome the colors of Autumn to the garden.
This one blossom faded more quickly then the rest.
I thought the shades of brown were beautiful and rested it on a linen.
As the garden fades into Fall, welcome October.
