Making Autumn-in-September Memories


Holy smokes. I don't know how it's been around your house, but around here it has been busier than a swarm of bees.

Last weekend there wasn't even a spare second to sit and think much.




We had a birthday party, out-of-state guests, a visit with an elderly aunt and a class reunion breakfast, all rolled into a couple of days. Whew!

Loved setting an autumn table for breakfast.


The fall faux leaf wreath is up again, too, to welcome visitors.



While having a busy schedule does make one a little frantic, it's also wonderful for making precious memories!

DO YOU LIKE TO ENTERTAIN?

Autumn Decor


It's  definitely autumn.

I've finally, albeit reluctantly, reconciled to that fact as morning temps took a nosedive.

Of course, bowls of different kinds of candy corn are a must. 


(Thank heavens it's one candy I thoroughly dislike. If they were made out of chocolate, that would be a different story.) 

The pumpkin tablecloth was found at Big Lots for only $4.



Naturally, a new season means getting out decor to put around the house.

First came some faux  leaves for the front porch recycled chair, shown at the top of the post.   (If you missed the original post on the chair and are interested, you can read about it here.

Put some decorations on the hall table, including a cool new table runner, below, also found at Big Lots. 



Of course it goes without saying that amber glass is very reminiscent of fall.

Even the kitchen table looks festive, don't you think?

Crocodile Dioramas


 Everyone knows not to get too close to a crock!

They are rather exotic and scary-looking creatures.




You can get a good look at them, fairly close-up, by looking at the dioramas at the Museum of Nature and Science in Denver, Colorado.

The rattlesnake and the crocodile diorama is especially fascinating.



We'll never know who won!
