white ode to fall...

Like many of you...fall is my favorite season.
I love
the milder sunshine, the colors, and the nip in the air.

It's like there is an excitement building...

We celebrated our family's fall birthdays last Sunday.
I threw together this fall arrangement for the table.
That is what is so nice about everything coordinating...
it just all works together,
no matter how it is arranged.

This is one of my treasures from Farm Chicks.

I bought it from Amy and Kris At the Country Store.

(Amy's blog is Amy's Vintage Cottage-check out her wonderful whites)

They had a fabulous of my favortist favorites.

The menu request was *Olive Garden* style.
Miss G made us chicken alfredo fetticini
fresh sourdough bread.
But this is the *killer*.

This is her version of :
Black Tie Mousse' Cake.
Just like Olive Garden.
To die for.

It is supposed to rain all day

so maybe I'll get caught up on my blogging.

I'm looking forward to a cup of tea and visiting all of the cozy whites out there.

Oh Rene, Love all your whites.... the way you arranged things for display is just Beautiful. The cake is something my husband would die over..... boy does that ever look scrumptious. By the way I adore the white cup near the cake too! Do you have many of those? I would love to get my hand on some of those.

Many Hugs-

You host the best get-together's and white laced party's.

My twinkle lights are in need of some adjusting after the storms yesterday blew them about. So many trees are down and flooding. But the air smells clean today and the birds in the field behind me are chirping as I type. Wish I could have you over for some tea. You, me, and jAne would have a sweet time together.

Ya know, whenever you try to be good someone just has to tempt you with something wonderful. My friend, I am now searching the house for chocolate. lol
Happy White Wednesday

Pauline said...

Dear Rene, what are you trying to do to me? That cake looks absolutely delish!! And the strange thing is...I'm allergic to chocolate. That has to be the stupidest allergy in the known world, lol.

Finally a moment to return so visits. Love the showers of white on all your blogs. So wish I could come to your friend's sale. But I would sure have to bring my wagon.
Cheers ;-)

Hi Renè,
you whites are simply fabulous.
you have such a talent for taking photos that do make everything look gorgeous.
I want to be a follower to check out often what you'll be up to.
I'd love just little one bite of your cake - looks soooooooo scrumptuous. I'm afraid I've already gained some pounds by simply looking at it so greedly.
Come and see my whites at
I'm not a pic artist like you but I'm doing my very best to improve at every post.
BTW, do leave a comment to let me know you've dropped by. I confess right here that I love reading (nd also writing) comments. Not only pics but also comments can be very inspiring and sometimes, when read at that very special moment, they can even change a person's life.

Hi Rene,
You take the most wonderful pictures! I remember that lovely ironstone pitcher it was one of my favorites. Ohhh the FarmChicks was that the greatest show ever!
Thanks for linking my blog, your so sweet!


Hi Rene, love all the whites, you always make everything look so pretty(;

Just a little something from Judy said...

Sitting at your table would be a real special treat. Your whites, arranged so creatively would make one beautiful tablescape. But, add that cake, and it would be almost like "heaven came down".

Thank you for your kind comment regarding the birth of the twins.

I really NEED a piece of that cake! It looks so yummy!
