Fall and Spookiness at the Cape House

Hi All,
I love to decorate for Fall.  I think it is because we get to add vibrant colors!  Here are some snippets of spaces around the Cape house.  Enjoy!
 Fall d├ęcor above my beloved Flair range...
 Granny's Hoosier cabinet, all decked out...
 Fireplace in the den...
 Fall arrangement I put together in the den...
 Shelf in the den, I couldn't part with the Velveteen rabbit for Fall..
 Dining room table centerpiece...
 Fireplace mantel...
 See the cup and saucer filled with pumpkins?
 Here is a close-up.  I saw an original that belonged to Carole Lombard on ebay.  Waaaaay to expensive for me, so I search ebay and found an exact copy.  Copeland Spode from the 1930's, much cheaper.  Love!
 Witches hat on the hutch...
 Landing on the stairs...
 Vignette in the breakfast nook, atop my cookbooks...
My new piece this year, on the wall...
 
Happy Fall to all!

Our Vacation/Retirement Home

Hi All,
Husband is not quite retired, yet, but we took the plunge and bought a townhome in our beloved, Daytona Beach Shores, FL!  I was down there fore 8 days for closing, getting the place updated, and furnishing it.  Still more to do on all fronts, but I made a big dent.  I plan to go back down for another week, later in October.  Still more plumbing and lighting fixtures to be updated and more furniture coming.  Here are a few pics, though...

Hi!

Hi All!
It has been so  long since I have posted.  I guess I needed a little break.  Also, my parents are needing me more and more.  I am an only child, so I'm it for them, and of course, I am happy to be there for them, as they have always been there for me!
Anywhoo, a lot has been going on in my life.  I hosted an 80th birthday party for my Mother this past July, my daughter is pregnant with our first grandchild, yay!, we vacationed in Florida and decided to buy a townhouse, for our retirement.  We will be closing on it soon!  We just returned from NYC and a stay at the Waldorf Astoria and going to the US Open tennis!  So, with that said, I am just going to post a hodge podge of pictures!  Hope you all have been well, and hoping to be a more frequent blogger, in the future!
 Spring trip to San Francisco to see my son... Golden gate behind us...
