~arrival of Autumn

~said the owl to the scarecrow,
"there is no doubt,
 be careful with whooooom you hang out!"
 -J. Brown
loving this time of year
cooler temps ~ the vibrant colors ~ comforts of home


Mr. Rooster rests on the bar and seen promptly
when entering the back door.
~back door guests are the best

this grouping on the kitchen cabinet
is convenient for serving from the bar
whether buffet style or dessert

~ the entry and entertainment center groupings
have been shared on a earlier post
hope you don't mind me sharing them again

~love the pencil texture I have added on this one

my mother-in-law painted the lovely card
with the sunflower and I framed it

~the picture below is just a "snip-it"
 of what I must accomplish
this next week

Linking to the following: Autumn Arrives Party

Karen, your home looks like it almost glows with the warm fall colors. The rooster vignette is very pretty. I like decorating with roosters, too. Somehow they seem to make a space look comfortable and inviting. The framed sunflower is very special and looks perfect in the vignette. Have a great weekend!---Shannon

What a beautiful home - so festive and ready for fall. And I love that rooster! Thanks for stopping by to say hello! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Karen, Love that rooster- he definitely is an inviting thing to see when entering your back door. I remember my mother having backdoor guests growing up! But I grew up in a very small town. Do people still do that, I wonder? Your fall decorating is truly lovely. :-) Sue

Beautiful photos of your beautifully decorated autumn home. Also, I'm enjoying your music so much. I've never heard of this pianist but I'm going to look him up on Amazon to see if I can get a CD of his music, it is absolutely wonderful!
