It's Autumn!

The weather has been lovely here in northern Illinois.  For the last week, we've been treated to an Indian summer.  I started my outdoor decorating.  Lovely mums, a pumpkin, and potted helenium (a tall orange-yellow perennial- not yet blooming) sit on both sides of the front entrance.  I'm still working on filling an old wooden cart with a variety of pumpkins, gourds, grasses, and mums.  I love this time of year- the weather and the colors make me happy!

Thanks for the comment on my newest piece of Pyrex. I love your blog. It looks like you're starting to get ready for American Thanksgiving.
All the best,
