These are from a few weeks ago. The leaves fell really quick this year. Not much time to enjoy them. This is the maple in my front yard.
When I get home in the evenings my living room is already getting dark. The yellow leaves outside seemed to illuminate the window like a lantern. So pretty.
This is the dessert table from the baby shower I hosted Monday. We had two big pots of soup for dinner and then cake and cookies. I put the flower arrangements together with flowers from the grocery store and leaves and greenery from my backyard.
I moved the flowers to the hall after the shower. They look right at home on my linen dresser. The frames above showcase a favorite gift from my grandmother. She bought these "paper dolls" at a flea market. There are a whole pile of them, but I could only frame a few. They were folded inside one of those huge Uncle Sam war posters. They are actually hand cut out of catalogs! Some have been colored. Some have arms missing. They were obviously well loved. My Nanny knew that I would love them, too. Click on the pic to see them a little larger.
Hope you enjoyed my little show and tell. Love to you all. Have a great weekend.
