I bet you recognized our home by the front door basket! I had already
posted it hadn't I? I was just so excited about October's impending arrival that
I had to share just a few decorations earlier!
But now Rhoda's party is in full swing! Wow!
Uh huh. And I already shared this dining room centerpiece with you last week...
and are we ever enjoying it! Remember the precious painted
tray that I received from Robin ?
It truly IS the jewel in our 2009 Fall decor!
But another jewel at any time of year is our cottage's mascot, Miss Harvena Norbert Burns! Here she is all decked out and ready for Halloween! I haven't done a lot of Halloween fluffing quite yet and Harvena is miffed beyond words! I will get to it Harve old girl! Nobody likes a pushy rabbit!
Why even her best friend, Benjamin P. Bunny, is ready! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well! Where are my manners?
Welcome to our home, Rabbit Run Cottage!
It's just a little place in Ohio,
nothing too fancy, but we hope it's warm and welcoming.
We are just so happy you are here!
October has finally arrived!
I am just so excited and I hope your are as well.
Every season has it's own particular magic but the Autumn
has always been my favorite.
Chili simmering on the stove, bread baking in the oven...
Pumpkins in all shapes and sizes, fragrant mums in pots by the door.
Woolly sweaters and cozy denim jackets, there is a chill in the air!
Reading an old favorite book by a crackling fire and listening to the
wind whistle at the window.
The laughter of children as they scamper down the sidewalk calling, "Trick or Treat!"
Yes, Autumn is finally here!
Ooh but it's brisk outside. I am so glad you are inside where it's warm!
Would you like to take a peek at some of the seasonal decorating around the cottage?
Our foyer is tiny but cozy...let's hang up your jacket!
A closer peek at the decor...
Go ahead and take a look at the little treasures on top!
A little blown glass scarecrow...
turkeys and they just say Fall to me!
Our fireplace is all dressed in it's October finery...
Take a closer look!
Go ahead! Step closer!
And look! There is a squirrel looking for acorns! He is a wonderful collectible, picked up at Tuesday Morning last Spring! He was quite inexpensive as he had been a *left over* from the Fall/Winter. Lucky me huh?
Isn't it wonderful?
And in case you need reminded, the chalkboard let's you know what season it is! Yippee!
I adore this Susan Branch book and don't you love this dear old metal truck?
Especially when it's filled with the perfect Autumn treat! Candy Corn!
I've brought out the gourds and corn to place on the pot rack...
Our blogger friend Kathy made him and oh! If you have yet to meet
her, or to see her creations, run over now and say howdy doo!
Uh huh. Another turkey. They are beginning to flock around Rabbit Run in earnest!
I added some orange twinkling lights and lots of little goodies to the hutch...
And pulled out the old transfer ware turkey plate! That was a happy find when we lived near Tampa a few years ago. I was puttering around a little shop and uncovered it.
The man sold it to me for $7 because it was April and "No one wants a turkey plate in April!" Um...I sure did!
