AUTUMN'S GIFT

I am not the least bit sad to see summer fade...I welcome all that Autumn has to offer... with it's brilliant shades of color and crisp cool air it makes me come alive...feel energized...ready to tackle the last few chores on summer "to do" list... I begin my day with Jack...holder of morning cereal...

one can never have enough Jack-O-Lanterns...

they find their way to Dog Trot Farm in all shapes and sizes...large..small..happy..spooky.. none are ever turned away...


along with black glittered owls...and owls with soft downy feathers... witches boots that jingle in the dead of night... blackbirds...crows...ravens...all find a home here... the harvesting of squash and pumpkins is in full swing...there are many shapes and sizes to choose from... and the colors..from pale to vibrant...I'll take one of each please!!! I hope you too are taking advantage of these brilliant Fall days...whether it be stuffing a scarecrow... heading to an apple orchard... a pumpkin field... seize the day...you won't regret it~

I love the colours of fall too - in fact it's my favorite season. Those witch's boots are great!

I love your fall decorations, fall weather and the glorious colors. What a feast for the eyes. My pumpkin is now ready for harvest. The smaller one will have to wait a bit.

I love the witch's boots too. JB

As always you make my day. I always enjoy looking at all of your goodies that you put out in the fall. Your pumpkins are so nice.
I still love those witch boots.

Your breakfast cereal bowl is sweet. I love all fall decorations too. Yours are exceptionally festive. Going to the local farms for apples and pumpkins is the highlight of the season for me. I can't wait to light a fire in the fireplace.

Well, I would be happy if summer got stuck in a 6 month loop! LOL!!! I love that season! While I enjoy Autumn and all the decorating it's that nasty 4-letter word that follows Autumn that I hate. The stuff you have to plow, and shovel . . . I love your decorations! Especially the crows!

Oh, that stencil is stunning! Did you do that? I'd love to see more of it . . . I know, I'm being nosey! LOL!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!
