Autumn,  

the year's last loveliest smile. 

William Cullen Bryant




Autumn roses.


I can't help it.
I love my roses.
This particular variety smells heavenly.
I've been walking around with the jar offering whiffs
to all who are near...
pure heaven, I tell you.


***
Where are the white pumpkins, you ask?
So do I.
Apparently, we have had too much rain.
 They're still in the field.
I'll try again this weekend .

Three is my favorite but they are all very nice! Love your first photo of the post!

I am torn between 1 & 3. ---1 because the pink is brighter & 3 becasue it almost looks like a vintage postcard. & I have to tell you I ADORE the pic of you & your sweetheart- it's obvious you're in love! so touching & sometimes hard to capture in a photograph.

Wish you were closer & I could affordto have you come decorate my home for me!!!

Rene' I am torn between No. 2 and 3 but I think I like the "happy medium" of NO. 3 best...they are all wonderful on their own merit.

Oh, what pretty shots! I love the roses in the little blue jar and the white china. Our little white pumpkins are everywhere because our Autumn came early. Wishing you a delightful weekend and thank you for sharing your pretties.

Hi I like number 4 best and then 2.
Hey a couple of weeks ago I asked you about the upside down nail thingy you had the peach pie recipe standing up in? I didn't hear back yet and am still very curious to know. Thanks, EllenaElizabethMakes

OOOOHHHH! I love number 3! The stamp makes look vintage and postcardish! I love your blog! I checked out your etsy shop not too long as well. Looks good! Praying you are doing well.

Sweet! I love all of them, but I have to say that I like the postal stamp the best. :) It would make a darling postcard.

I like them all but like the softness of the 2nd one with the fuzzy background.

You guys look so in love. Now if I could get my hubby to look at me that way....haha
