Wasn’t it just summer with birds singing and morning coffee outside on the back steps?

I was looking back at fall pictures I took (before I got my fancy shamancy camera) and pulled out some favorites taken with my plain old camera.

Looking across the street.

You can see it doesn’t matter what kind of camera you have, you can get a great photo when the light is right.

 In this case when I stepped out the front door and looked up the street, the light was just perfect.


Here’s a few more photos from when I was thinking about starting this blog…..

I’ve had this antique table runner for years.

I think it’s a natural fit on an old window in our old house.

Vintage teacups make the sweetest little vases.

Set on top of a grandma doily.

Simply lovely.

One of my favorite things about the cooler and longer evenings is having candles glowing.

This is where it doesn’t take much to make the home a bit nicer.

One Halloween I gathered all the old things around the house that were black and came up with this.

It looks like something at the Adams Family house.

And now we’re off to the season of pumpkins, hot cider and trick or treats.

Enjoy it and have fun!
