Spectacular Autumn continues...
and I am as happy as this gal!
I took a trip off the farm yesterday morning through the countryside
in search of treasure.
I was hoping to find something big to place on the center of my
dining room table for seasonal decorating.
We have a rather large table, and most centerpieces are swallowed up by it.
I travelled through the rolling ridges and valleys of our local countryside...
(still so green!)
and stopped in at some of my favorite antique markets.
Along the way I saw this guy...
a Gypsy Vanner (my all-time favorite horse crush).
These are the horses that the Gypsies used to have to pull their wagons.
In my dreams I own a horse like this and the wagon as well.
And in my dreams we travel the countryside from small town to small town...
adventure and adventure.
(A girl can dream!)
In my dreams, though, my horse looks like this...
My trip was successful.
I found this rusty old iron pig trough, and it's the perfect size for our table.
My pumpkin collection fits perfectly!
My other goal was to find something for displaying dried hydrangea.
I have several bushes that are loaded with dried or drying blossoms.
I love bringing them inside to enjoy throughout the winter.
I found a most unusual twig basket...
This evening we will spend Trick-or-Treat time with all three of our Littles.
We traditionally get together for supper on this evening.
I've baked treats for my little ones...
and treats for Hubbs...
These are simply the best biscotti... and are so easy to bake.
