Yesterday, I broke the vow I have made for myself. I left the house without my camera! I should have some great pictures of neat, historic, Mount Dora to share! I ate lunch at the beautiful, very old Mount Dora Hotel. Two good friends and I celebrated one friend's birthday. It was a nice time in a photogentic setting but, of course, I have no photo's. Maybe the next trip up there will be more productive, picture wise. Instead, I will share some more fall accents from in and around my house.
This sign welcomes visitors as they near my front door.
I love hanging chairs on walls. Maybe I should have been a Shaker. That's where they stored their chairs when they weren't in use. If I had bigger walls I would hang bigger chairs!
I also like to set stools on countertops. This one was made by a grandma way back in our family many years ago. It's probably a good thing I don't have much countertop space ~ no tellin' what might be found on them!
Beautiful colors of the cloak of fall!
Autumn enchantment is an inspiration for joy! Festive, fabulous fall!
A cute little jar of Sugar Shack's jalapeno strawberry preserves ~ just the right amount to spread over a block of cream cheese.
I visited Sams yesterday with the hope of finding gourds or something to add to the look of the season.
They didn't have much to offer so I am using this picture from a few years back. I did purchase these gourds at Sams that year for a very small price. I added some scotchbonnet peppers and totally enjoyed this big wooden bowl with its offerings.
And, ta daaaaa! I feel like Cinderella's godmother, except I turned a paperback book into a pumpkin. It does not photograph well but considering the little effort it takes I am quite pleased with the results ~ a shabby chic pumpkin.
