Time to Decorate for Fall

Needed to go to the store for work the other day, and couldn't resist picking up a few things for my dining room tablescape.

Leaf placemats & jacquart napkins are from Walmart.

The chargers are from Walmart, too.

The cake stand and pumpkin are from Hobby Lobby.

The plates are from Pier 1 several years ago.

I have more pictures, but they won't seem to rotate for me, so I'll try to add them later.

Enjoy your day!

Back from New England

Got back on Sept. 12 from a week long trip to visit with my mom.  Didn't do much other than visit.  Took a day trip to Nantasket beach in Hull, MA.  What a driving nightmare that was!  Went out for dinner a couple of times and spent time with other family members and some of my mom's neighbors

Not the most becoming picture of my mom!  We went to Jake and Joe's with my cousin, Barbara.

Sara enjoyed her stay at the Red Woof! Inn.

My dad used to work near this viaduct that carries a train track overhead.  We saw a crane through the opening.

I always feel so bad when I go back to visit about the family headstone.  Nobody left to take care of it.  My mom isn't physically able to and it's located in a cemetery that is just beautiful.  The people of this town really take care of their deceased.  So I got some flowers to put by ours.  Am thinking of hiring a gardener just to care for it when I can't get back there.  The container has things in it that should last through the winter and maybe come back next spring.

That's it for now.  Enjoy your day!
