Fall Tablescape

I love October. It's my birthday month (official date October 8), it's generally cooler in Texas, and there's just a crispness to the air and my attitude.  I will have spent this past weekend in PA visiting my Dad and family, and catching up with old friends. (Yes, I've known them since junior high and we are getting old(er) )

Last weekend I visited our local nursery and bought these pumpkins for my fall tablescape. Bright and cheery oranges and yellow pop - a treat for the eye.

So, happy October and Monday. Back to work for me.

    1. Um. I like pumpkins as a thing. Not so much as flavor. Thanks for the good wishes

  7. Happy October to you, too! Your table centerpiece pumpkins are gorgeous. Seeing them makes me feel all autumn-y, like I should be sipping spiced apple cider or something.

    I hope you had an awesome trip to PA. Welcome home. :)
