One Leaf At A Time

Waking up to a cool morning, fall is in the air.
The leaves are falling and changing colors.
I just have to work one more week, then it is 2 weeks of blissful vacation.

Maybe I will get my fall decorating done then?
But for now, just a few things at a time.
When Mr. brought a box home from is Mom's as she was downsizing,
I did not pay much attention to this at first?
a white leaf dish

flipped it over and Mr did good again, more French pieces, just like our glasses he brought home!
My MIL has such great taste.

Add a touch of fall and............

add some acorns and I am ready for Fall

Mr. also brought another box of linens home from his shop,
a person who has antiques rented space but hasn't paid his rent in 8 months so........
I get little treats brought home now and then.

Have a Great Weekend!

(sorry I live in St Louis!)

Evening Ann, I love the acorns in the dish....and the dish!! I'm thinking of naming the cottage, one of the names in the running is Acorn sweet! Maybe it's a sign~~~Have a wonderful 2 weeks time off, I'm sure you are counting the days! Blessings~~~Roxie

Hi Ann,
How lucky you are to get little gifts here and there. The leaf is a cute one, I like the acorns in it. I'll be looking for more of your Fall decorating in a couple of weeks.
Happy Sunday!

What a lovely leaf dish. Are the acorns real? We don't see acorns here. Very pretty. It does not take much to make a room look a little festive. Yes, the Mr. did well. Have a good week, Ann.

Sweet dush with the acorns. We went camping this week and the acorns were falling from the trees pelting, our camper So loud they woke us up couple times. I was too stupid to bring any home. Oh well. :) Can't wait to see your linens!

What a treasure! Your leaf dish looks so pretty with the acorns. Geez, I've not even done any decorating yet for fall. Pretty soon it will be time to get the Christmas decorations out!!
