After a long, hot, dry summer, the cooler temperatures and colors of fall have been glorious.

I'm already thinking of changes for the garden for next year.

Summer Tablescape


I had been thinking about putting together a summer tablescape, but did not feel very inspired.  Finally, I just started grabbing things around the house and put together some of my favorites: urns, mercury glass and seashells.


I love color, and mostly blues and greens.  However, when I come across vignettes that are mostly in white, I just swoon.  In my own decorating I can't seem to break away from color.

The Garden in April

The first few weeks of spring started out very warm in Wisconsin; however, we then had a few weeks of cool weather with frosts during the night.  Here's a look at my garden during the month of April.
