Looking Back At October

October is one of my favorite months.
It just the beginning of the holiday season.
Just click on any of the blue words 
to link to that post and see more.
I autumn-ized the kitchen with fall color.
Changed the mug shots at the coffee station
and made puffins.
Replaced the garbage disposal and watched
That lead to organizing the space under
the kitchen sink.
 I made an A-U-T-U-M-N banner.
 Got out my collection of thrifted afghans.
 Made a wreath with used coffee filters.
 Added a little fall to the breakfast table.
 Printed placecards and used 
pinecones for holders.
 Dreamed of white pumpkins. 
Came to terms with my RDS.
 Used my long-blooming orchid on my 
living room coffee table vignette.
I gathered branches from the yard and
added them to the silver and crystal 
on the cobblers bench.
 We hit the road for North Carolina
 to see the leaves and spend time at our
 I made this sign for to take along 
and hang when we got there.
'It's Wonderful To Be Back'

Time for a new Fall background and music.



  1. Thanks for sharing your October Memories. Loved it. Beautiful pictures of your Autumn Decor. October is a beautiful month. Looking forward to your November posts. Karie

  2. Rita May,
    Fun catching up on your October posts, lovely!
    It's my favorite month, love everything about it! The only thing wrong with it is that it doesn't last long enough! I can just imagine how beautiful it is in the mountains of NC this time of year! Went thru Ashville in Sept on my way to and from Raleigh to visit my son in the Air Force before he left for Afganistan and stopped at the Biltmore exit on my way back for a little detour. It was a gorgeous day and I really enjoyed it. Years ago while living in Charlotte, toured the BH in Nov. Was spectacular!

  3. Rita: I'm exhausted reading all you've done in October! Everything was wonderful as usual :) Jennifer

  4. What a wonderful October you've had! Love all your autumn fluffing. Wishing you many joys ahead as we sprint towards the end of 2011.

  5. Rita, this was a delight! I love October too. It always feels like a new beginning to me. I love all your details but especially the branches with the silver and crystal. So enjoyed the music too!

  6. LOVE your fall decorations! I am worn out just reading what you've been up to. I really like the eclectic mix of the orchid and pinecones! I meant to gather up some branches, but now I would have to put on snow boots first! Thanks so much for sharing your October with us. I love your furry children, too.

  7. What a busy and festive October you enjoyed! I love all of your fabulous fall decor (and organized cabinets)!!

  8. Beautiful post!! Love your silver :-))
