Fall: Is it really Around the Corner?

AD-Free Blog

I'm finally coming up for air from dealing with garden produce. In the Midwest, we had HUGE rain and storms last night, but it has seemed to have pushed the horrid Temps and Humidity 
out. I actually de-summered the living room. And, actually began thinking about Fall.

These are some of my old photos from when I first began blogging.

Crab apples at the Botanic Gardens.

 Geese feeding in the local Forest preserve.

Are you ready for Pumpkin Spiced coffee from a Vintage Pot and cup on the porch?

 Old photo from N.Wisconsin sunflower field.

Natures' bounty arrangement, everything from our yard.

Our home is Fall with rich colors all year long. 

Casual table setting with vintage and new.  Garden flowers, produce and faux fruit. Can you guess which is which?

Squirrel in vintage margarita glass, everyone is nuts about Fall!

Some photos, just can't be arranged, Nature does it for you.

Everyone is fattening up for winter in the Farmhouse kitchen.

Lots of faux flowers in an old Ironstone pitcher.

She's shy...hiding in the Fall leaves.

Front porch in long shadows.

Huge acorns from the Lakewood Forest Preserve in my mom's 1950's wooden cracker server.

Pilgrimage to the Pumpkin Farm. Love the old wagons we pulled our pumpkins in.

Bounty on the Buffet. All warm tones, natural,  Antique silver and Jamestown glass candlesticks from 1986.

Almost antique brass candlestick from my Great Grandparent's wedding anniversary. Dried Hydrangeas and gourds from our garden. Indian Corn in an old glass pitcher.

Is Fall showing her lovely sheen in your neck of the woods?

  1. Wow!Great Fall vignettes,amazing pictures!I would love to see that bowl in more details...It looks Imari style and really gorgeous...Hugs!

    1. Thank you Louca===but the 'bowl' is actually an hexagon shaped base to the lamp in my window. Purchased new from a lamp shop in the mid 70's. LOL, I guess it is vintage now.

  2. Lovely photos, Sandi! And it is definitely starting to feel like fall here!

    1. Thanks, Linda. We had two days ---now it's back to steam heat....ugh!

  3. I'm not at all ready for fall but you make it look inviting! Love the orange pot and cup!

    1. Neither am I...but I have begun clearing some summer clutter. Amazing how summer toys, tools, and paraphernalia can take over a house and porch.

  4. Sandi, you do have a way with your displays. Beautiful as mother nature provides! I love that orange coffee pot!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    1. Many thanks, Jann, considering you are the source of that compliment, I'm blushing!

  5. Beautiful photos, Sandi! Thanks for sharing at Share Your Style!

  6. Hi Sandi. Thanks for your visit and your kind words. I love all your fall offerings. This is such a beautiful time of the year and I think it is a comforting time as well. Not only for the soul but for the eyes too. Hope you are having a good week..Judy

    1. Fall is my favorite---I have more Fall photos than anything, thanks for visiting!

  7. Beautiful vignettes, Sandi! Love that cute piggie eating corn!!

  8. LOL, that is my 'Christmas Pig', that has seemed to stick around. Danes have rice pudding for Christmas with one almond in it. Whoever gets the almond gets the Christmas pig--symbol of sustenance for the coming year..! It's a very old custom. Thanks for stopping by.


Thank you for any and all comments. I will be happy to answer any questions or comments in replies or email! HUGS!
