Falling for Fall

Mmmm ...

Just back from a trip to Washington.
No, no, no ....
not THAT Washington!

That trip is NEXT week, silly!

But THIS Washington ...

While I was away,
fall happened ...
on both coasts.

It reminded me
how much I like fall 
and it's bits and pieces.

Here are a few
just for you.
Leaves from Sandy and Joe at
They are not in the Northwest ....
but a great blog to visit.

These luscious lovelies are from
She had a great time at Art Camp while I was gone.
This one is from Florence's blog
(And it sounds like I missed a 
GREAT primitive sale while I was gone!!)

And don't you love this one from Noteworthy Musings?
And this one too?
Carole had some great getaways.

It's nice to take a few minutes
to catch up with
what people have been doing ...

our time together.
So many more to drop by and see ...

and comments to reply to.


But first a quick look
at MY own bit of fall 
in my dining room
Preserved leaves from Safeway
artificial blooms (on sale) at Michael's
salvaged curly willow in
an old ironstone pitcher ...

And look closer ...
my own
from sweet Martha at

Time to get back to work! ....

Hugs and hopes for a fabulous fall!

ps .... found the PERFECT shoes to go with the pumpkin magic wand but they didn't fit .....


  1. When you hit the STATE of Washington next week. Are you going to be in the Seattle area - there is an awesome shop there called Maxines ...I walked in last year and just squealed. Totally worth popping into.

  6. Darn I wish the ruby shoes would have fit, you must of had a great time in Washington DC, and yes our fall is here. The primitive sale was nice and of course I found some treasures and got to visit with some great ladies. This Saturday is the Vintage Treasures Sale, they have two sales a year and have some great deals. Worthy Goods will be there. Maybe I will see you there. Florence

  7. Loving your wand! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment ~ it is always so nice to have new visitors. I found the quote on line and it was not tagged with an author which is why I could not credit it. Have a fabulous Friday!

  8. Hello and welcome home... funny because when I was in CO I got a good dose of winter! Really not my favorite.
    And while I was gone I got the nicest package, thank you so much! Everything was just beautiful, I guess I won something but I forgot about it so it was such a wonderful homecoming. Thank you, thank you

  9. Beautiful pics.,

    love the fall colors.
