One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words. ~ Goethe

The Fall Kitchen ~

Miss Twiggley decided that it was time for us to do a little kitchen decorating for the fall holidays. So, down in the basement I went and brought up some things to add an autumnal flair.

A few pumpkins, grapes, some foliage, and a little witch are perfect in the china cabinet. After Halloween I will replace the witch with a very cute turkey.

My daughter gave me this gorgeous china pumpkin a few years ago. 

Since I spend a lot of time at the sink I wanted something pretty to look at.

 Across the room, on the shelf in the eating area I gathered together: pumpkins on the vine, a few sparkles. more squash, and of course some lace. I wanted it to look very abundant.

I like it and I think that Miss Twiggley does too (she has promised to be a good girl and not knock it all down!)
Now we're all set in the kitchen for Halloween and Thanksgiving. How about you? 


  1. Love your fall kitchen. It's definitely something that can work through Thanksgiving. I'm impressed if Miss Twiggley leaves all those pretty temptations alone. She's so sweet.

  2. How pretty! I hope your kitty is better than mine, they love to get into mischief :)

  3. oh how you do tempt your feline friend--I mean look at that arrangement, just made for hoping around and through.

  4. Gosh that Miss Twiggly is adorable!
    Your autumnal accents are putting me in the mood to add some frills to our decor.

  11. Miss Twiggley looks like part of the decorations -- she has sweet autumn colors! Love your kitchen -- I hadn't thought about decorating at the sink, but you're right, we do spend a lot of time there and need to look at a some pretty fall decor!
