It is so much fun at the start of a new season. Replacing the quiet colors of summer with the rich jewels of fall. I draped the mantles with bittersweet, filled baskets with hydrangea blooms and lavender. Replaced bowl fillers with apples, pears, & gourds. My husband found a perfect, dried gourd, a cast-off from last year. I varnished it. It turned out the most marvelous color like aged stucco. It was such a wonderful surprise that now is part of a still-life on my back-door cupboard. I filled a great, green basket with silk sunflowers, hydrangea & bittersweet to put outside my front door. Poor Pee Wee is just "decorated out". He had to take a qucik cat-nap.
