Even though Mr. Squirrel already has a stash of acorns, I think he is finding the bigger ones to be mighty tempting. See his little paw going in for the grab.
His little white-rimmed eyes remind me of someone else around here. . .
She was quietly observing me as I worked at playing with my fall decor. At 13, she is starting to show her age and it tugs at my heartstrings. Such a loyal companion she has been to us.
I'm somewhat hesitant to do a post on my fall decor because there's not a whole lot going on and it doesn't change much from year to year. However, since I enjoy the opportunity to visit all of the beautiful homes decorated for the season in blogland, I thought I'd hop onboard and join in the fun.
This year I decided to gather up a bunch of dried hydrangea heads and place them in a bowl. I think their understated colors are a good match for my pastel sofa and I like the texture they provide.
The bookcases got a slight makeover.
Translated to mean I replaced the summery looking books and pottery with the same things in more autumnal shades.
My vignettes seem to always include vintage pottery, books, birds and candles. Most of which have come from the thrift shops.
On the kitchen table...
more dried hydrangeas and more thrift shop treasures.
How's that for budget decorating? ;D
Do you see those tall things outside the window?
Here's a closer view.
This was something planted with our summer landscaping project.
It's called Zebra Grass. All summer it grew as a pretty and interesting striped grass. It has been a pleasant surprise to see all of these tassels pop out as fall approached. Many of them are taller than I am. They gently sway in the breeze and add a lovely sense of movement to the garden.
When they begin to open they remind me of corn on the cob tassels. Once fully opened my thought was more like fall fireworks. Which reminds me it's time to celebrate fall and all of the joys this season has to offer. It also reminds me that it's time to put away the pallet flag.
