A Little Fall

I’ve been slowly putting out my fall decorations. Next weekend, I’ll add my Halloween things. I emptied my deck planters of the summer annuals, put in pansies and mums, and changed the wreath to a fall one. I’m doing a little bit each weekend, so that I can really enjoy it.

This big yellow bowl belonged to my grandmother. She used to fill it with ice and serve drinks in it when she had bridge parties. The silver compotes also belonged to her. They came from a lady who owned a boarding house in either Vinton or Pearisburg. The candles are from a local candle place, http://www.beeswaxcandleco.com/, in downtown Lynchburg. I’ve had them for several years and they still smell so good. I save my Indian Corn from year to year. It’s a wonder that some pest hasn’t eaten it by now. I guess that’s a sign that we don’t have mice. (Thank Goodness!!)

I took this picture at the end of October last year. We drove to the Blue Ridge Parkway and then on to the Peaks of Otter in Bedford, VA. This view is of Arnold Valley on the Shenandoah Valley side of the mountain. I am so lucky to live in a place where there’s such beauty, just a few miles away.

  1. your fall decorations are perfect, S/P…and I didn’t know you could save Indian Corn from one year to the next…I should try that instead of tossing it…
