Happy Autumn!

Wonderful header!

Your comment about smashing plates today made me giggle. Of course you'd be smashing plates!

Foggy and overcast with rain expected here today and, though I'm going to be working in my dining room, I hope not to smash any plates.

Have fun!

see you there! said...

Love the quote. Isn't it fun to see the pumpkins arriving? One of my favorite times of the year.

Happy autumn! What a great quote. :) It's as though the weather here knows it's fall now; it's rainy and chilly enough for a sweater. Love it.

Penny, I forgot to mention I'm having a giveaway on my Pink Home blog, if you want to stop by and enter. :)

What a wonderful quote, by my favorite author. Lovely photo too. I went pumpkin hunting yesterday and found a beautiful one at one of my local farms. They had engraved the word WELCOME into the pumpkin. I asked the price, and he said $30.00. Ugg, it had been $15.00 on Saturday. I left pumkinless, and went to another farm and bought a beautiful pumkin, a Cinderella pumpkin and fresh vegetables for my soup for dinner. I got a stylist and I am going to engrave my own WELCOME. I'll post the results soon.

Happy weekend, Karen

Those fall colors are starting to dot the landscape. The turns are starting to turn a little and I see people adding mums each day. Pumpkin stands are every where and I am happy it is fall, but sad, as summer is gone and winter is near. Thanks for sharing. Richard from My Old Historic House.

Penny it has been some time since I visited and wish you a Happy Autumn! Oh my how enchanting the evening at the Biltmore Estates was! The menu divine and the ambiance...to die for!

I see another old wagon there.. :) This morning I looked out my window to see my son in law returning some plants to me that have been taken mistakenly when he picked up my daughters. (I was careing for them for awhile and poor son in law didn't know what was mine and what was daughter's. Long story! :) Anyway..the old wagon returned to daughter this morning.
My daughter is a homemaker to the max and loves her things but thought there would be no room in her new home for all she had acquired so reluctantly let her wagon go. I told her if she ever wanted it back she could have it..and she assured me she wouldn't...
But..my heart told me it hurt her to let it go.
So when they decided to call off the move..at least for now..the wagon went home.
And I am glad.
I feel good that you share my love of old wagons..or even new for that matter.
This wagon was special..but I think most are.
Hugs to you, Penny!

Thoughts of sitting upon a pumpkin make me smile. Just like thinking of you makes me smile.♥

Good morning Penny, Did you get rain last night? Here in Raleigh the heavens opened up. We are having a grand time. I'm calling Mary this morning in hopes that we can get together.
Have a wonderful day,
XO, Jeanne
