September CupboardScape

{as gramma H would say}
Here I've been talking about the end of Summer,
posting Autumn pics,
and it dawned on me that I once again almost
forgot about my CupboardScape.

Although here in Michigan it is nearly 90 degrees,
Let's herald in Fall with this
harvest CupboardScape.

I have always had a love hate relationship with thistles.
I so love the shape of the leaves and that purple flower.
But then you realize when you try to touch them.

I always tried every year to pick these beauties
by hand of course...
and every year it seemed I never learned my lesson.
Each year growing up I managed to prick myself.

It's true with age comes wisdom.
Now I look at the wild ones from a distance
and place the faux ones in my decor.
It sure is safer that way...
plus my hands like me for it too. LOL

Chinese Lanterns are another Autumn favorite of mine.
Mom mom use to say if you made a wish and then
popped the pod your wish would come true.
Now I think it was her way of getting me 
to re-seed her plants. :-)   but it worked.

The colors in our house go very well with the season's colors.

I bring out old faithful each Fall.
A child's quilt perfect for the season.

A simple Autumn display.

My favorite time of the year.

I personally believe that the colors of Autumn speak.

They say ~
"C'mon on in. All Are Welcome!"

With the temperature at an all time high,
I took the grands home early,
now I am holed up inside creating for Christmas.
{Staying cool}
Yesterday we had fun at the beach, 
went for ice cream, 
We had chili dogs and fries for dinner
 {their favorite}
This morning breakfast 
was french toast and breakfast sausage.
Bob and I normally do not eat breakfast,
 so it's a treat when we have breakfast too!

Hope everyone is enjoying their first Autumn weekend!
  An Autumn Welcome Blessings To All!


  1. Beautiful, I love the fall colors. My great-grandma loved chinese lanterns.

  2. Love the burst of Autumn color to your decor. Love the Chinese Lanterns and the little quilt.

  3. Everything looks beautiful, Janice! I've settled for "faux" flowers myself...they last longer...LOL!!

  4. I am so happy you had such a fun weekend with your grandchildren. It is so odd that you had such high temps again this weekend. sys that you are in for much cooler weather this coming week so enjoy! I never think about Chinese lanterns but they look really good as a fall decoration. You can't beat that rich orange color. Your little child quilt just makes me think of getting all cozy on the couch with a cup of something hot to drink. Perfect for your fallscape.

  5. I live in central NH and we are in the 90's crazy weather for us! I do not like it. Give me clear crisp days. Love your fall decorations I have only put a couple of pumpkins out by the light pole

  6. Sounds like a fun time with the grands. I adore your fall decor. So warm and welcoming. I appreciate your kind visit to my blog.

  7. Janice, All your floral items are very pretty and natural. I love the pottery you are using. It's been hot here in Indy also. Maybe winter will stay away a bit longer. LOL Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
