When will Autumn Leaves begin to Fall?

"Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall"
 Autumn Leaves, lyric by Johnny Mercer

Well I hope you have missed me! There have been many reasons for my blogging break - some good (trips, vacation) and some not so good (a parent's broken hip, my broken rib), but I am back! 

Fall is my very favorite time of year and always has been. Pumpkins, turkeys, the county fair, (usually) cooler weather and lower humidity, Halloween, Thanksgiving, the anticipation of Christmas - I just love it all!

Here are some selected scenes of fall around my house:

Walk on up the front steps but watch out for the various mums and pumpkins!

If you come around the side of the porch, I have a little fall flag to greet you!

I call my parlor mantle "The Pumpkin Patch" in the fall!
 And over at the tea table, I have tea for two ready!

I love how the morning light comes through the glass pumpkins!

Turkey and Pumpkins in metallic shades decorate the dining room mantle.

In the Billiards Room I am going for a Pheasant theme!

That's all I have to share today. If you noticed I didn't show you my dining room table. That's because there has been a delay renovating my sewing and craft room and right now the dining room table is covered with fabric!
My younger daughter Emily graduated from college last May and she and I have been sewing up a storm for our Etsy store, The Chapeau Chateau.

We have added lots of items other than hats and fascinators and we have teamed up with Darwin's Screen Printing to do monogrammed pocket T-shirts. (Another thing that has kept me from blogging!) Please check out our store!

I will be linking to Let's Dish at Cuisine Kathleen and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
