Is Fall coming?

This is the first bit of dry air we have had in weeks..ahhhh. I run up to the attic and started to pull out some of my Harvest decorations. I think I will roast a pork tonight with garlic mashed potatoes and lots of fresh veggies from the garden. Maybe even make some bread. Oh what a bit of fresh air will do for me. A/C is off and the windows are open.


I still love my Bennington pottery....



I love Fall decorations and weather. Fall air is the best!


My little white pumpkins are from my garden. I can't wait to harvest the rest. I have some nice Cinderella pumpkins too. Thanks for checking out my tablescape. Be sure to go to Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. She is such a great hostess. Thank you Susan~

I love the look of white pumpkins--it will be a while before Fall hits here!!! But it is fun thinking about it!

(I posted my tablescape on my spindle cottage blog--but I do have other blogs...that blog is going to be mostly for house type pics)

Fall is definitely in the air and on your pretty table. I just need summer to last another month and then I go right into Halloween mode:)

Ahhhhhhhh! Everything looks great! You sure can't go wrong with your Bennington pottery! I think any meal would taste great on them! And the little white pumpkins are just adorable!

I am so ready for Fall too! It's my favorite! We are having rainy weather and the temps are cooler for the time being, so I am really enjoying it.

Have a great weekend!

It's a little cooler here too but I still have to have the a/c on. Looking forward to getting out my fall decor soon though.
Your table is so pretty. I can't wait to decorate around the house with pumpkins.

This looks so cosy - makes you want to curl and not go out again for a while :)

Well it has been hot and sunny here in the Vancouver area of BC for months now. Fall is coming though as we can tell by the cool nights. Perfect for sleeping.
There is something about an autumn tablescape that just screams delicious foods from the garden.

Roberta said...

White pumpkins...love them in Autumn. Doesn't get any better than having them in your garden!
Thanks for stopping by and seeking me out on Main Street. Sadly, I closed the shop last October after eight years. Margaret's, yummy!Not quite ready for fall yet but it was perfect day today! xo Roberta

Everything looks great. I have not seen white pumpkins in our area but they sure are cute. I love Bennington Pottery also. As a matter of fact, I love any kind of pottery.

Have a great day.
