Autumnal Inspiration

Autumn  is arriving in our home  even if    slowly.... I love the colors of fall!

The dining room  perhaps  is most  festively arrayed in  the  blazing colors of autumn!

 Nevertheless,   there are  hints of autumn  in other  places, too!

I have to   say,   that     with the   arrival of our granddaughter,   as well as,  caring for my parents,  things of   hearth and home   have   not  been   the  center of living....   but  my inspiration is  to   create   spaces,  as  able, that  reflect  my  deep appreciation  to God  for the beauty  all  around us...I remember   a couple of years ago  when  we    drove up in the mountains and I found this  wonderful country store where I bought my blue pumpkin,  and   enjoyed it on our  table...

Or  this  wonderful   trip  up the  parkway in fall...

  1. Your decorations look lovely. Sometimes life is filled with responsibilities and it is hard to find anytime to do some of the things we would like to do, but this too shall pass.
