Hello, dear friends!

Thank you so much for your lovely comments about Part 1!!  
It really warms my heart to hear from you 
and shows that many of you share a love
of the same things I do!!!!


As promised, here is Part 2!!

Dining Room!

Trencher filled with old butter stamps and butter paddles,
with a little punch needle pillow I made
from Pineberry Lane!!

Orange linen Farmer's Field Pumpkins I made
using a Sweet Meadow Farms design!
Love them on top of the old firkins!!

Love this grouping with the pantry boxes
and my favorite old blue chair!!


On to the Living Room!!

Dear Mrs. Begg stays out all year long,
another Pineberry design I made!
Love her little bag of wool
 with the smiling pumpkin
stitched to the front!!

She is joined by several friends,
along with the punch needle and pennies wool pillow,
another wonderful Pineberry Lane design,
all made by me!!

Stone fruit looks so perfect with the colors of Autumn!

 Oil Can Cat,
made by me
using a Lori Brechlin design
sitting by my black Farmer's Field Pumpkins!
Love them together!!!

Mr. CAT had to be in the middle!!!
He was a gift from my hubby a number of years ago!!

Fancey Blackett stays in my living room
all year long!
Another Pineberry Lane design
made by me!

Won't you come and rest a spell with my sweet friends?

Abby Hender is another sweet pattern
by Pineberry Lane!
She looks so nice with those 

Love all these colors together!!

I was so excited to find these two amazing candlestands
yesterday and they fit just perfectly
with this grouping!!

Two of my Sock Cat Make Do's sure look
they are up to some mischief, don't they??

Here are two more
hiding among the redware!!
I have my eye on them!!

Wonder how much trouble 
seven kitties can get into??

These two promise they are being 
perfect angels!!!
I wonder.........?


Thank you so much for taking the tour around my home!
I hope you have enjoyed the photos and been inspired!
I know I LOVE to see how others decorate
and always learn something new!

Wishing you Joy in the Season and all the Comforts of Home, my friends~

Happy Tuesday, dear friends!!

While many of you have already been experiencing the cooler temperatures of Autumn,
we in Arizona 
are still feeling some heat
and because of that
it has been hard to think about getting out my fall items!!

I grew up in Ohio and Michigan, and lived a number of years in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington,
so when it comes to this time of year, 
I have many memories of Craft Fairs, hot apple cider and donuts, Color Tours, crisp breezes, frost, pumpkin farms, and lots of layering, just to name a few!!!

What do YOU think of during this time of year?

Today I decided it was TIME and so out came all the things I love to decorate with each year!!!  
I even added some of the new items I still have for sale on my Picture Trail Selling Shoppe!
I might as well use them, rather than keep them in containers, right??
If you see something you are interested in, please be sure to visit
and see if it is still available!!!

Hope you enjoy this little tour of my home and perhaps even get some inspiration!!!


Let's start with the Kitchen/Breakfast Room!

Sweet hooked pumpkin by Lauren of Rugs and Pugs!

My Mini Velvet Pumpkin Pincushion and stuffed acorn
and one of my handmade cloth birds!

Vintage Cat lantern and cookie cutter!  Meow!!!

Little house with four cubbies for fall goodies!!

Rusty Jack with my Farmer's Field Pumpkins in Orange linen!

Sweet little house, birds, and old coverlet pieces!!


Next is the Dining Room!!

Little witch I made with her Indian Corn!

Another Farmer's Field Pumpkin I made on a vintage scale!

Sweet vignette among my old tin collection!!

Yellow ware cupboard with lots of little friends!!
Do you see them??

My old trencher filled with gourds!!

I think it is finally starting to look like Autumn,
don't you??

Thanks so much for stopping by today and visiting with me!!

I will be back in a few days with Part 2!
I hope you can join me!!!

Wishing you Special Memories, and all the Wonderful Sights, Smells and Colors of Autumn~
