Welcome Fall




Fall is a time to bring out those warm toned accessories. My favorite china is Orchard Gold by Aynsley. Unfortunately, it is pricey, so my collection is limited. Dahlias are still blooming plentifully, so I cut armloads for bouquets. Soon we will be putting out some tiny pumpkins and gourds. Now where have I hidden my Dept 56 autumn fruit stand??? 
To join the "Welcome Fall" party go to Rhondi's blog

Hi Millie
The colors in your photos are beautiful. I love that Aynsley china too. My mother had a couple of cups and saucers in that pattern. Thanks for joining the party.

Hi Millie! What a beautiful arrangement you created. I love dahlias and never grew them until 2 yrs. ago. I really appreciate your nice words about my arrangements, especially coming from you. I spent a good bit of time looking through your photos earlier today. Beautiful pictures. I was hoping to find a few more Christmas arrangements that you have done. Is there a section where I might find those? I could always use new inspiration !
