I'm Still Fallen

Hi Dear Ones! Are we ever through Falling around in our homes? Well, I'm still Falling! This time in the breakfast room.

This is my olden bookcase usually used in offices but it stands proudly in my breakfast room holding ever so neatly my cookbooks!


The top is the perfect spot to decorate with a little Fallness!


My most special Rooster sits here most all of the time guarding. That's his job! With a few Fallen leaves at his most tiny feet - he's Fallen too.


Just in case I forget and think it's still summer, especially with temps over 90', I can walk in here and see my little blocks of Fallness and my memory will get crystal clear! :)


My little porcelain basket filled with fruit looks all Fallen surrounded with autumn leaves and berries.


I have a little small lamp that always sits here and waits patiently for darkness to fall so she can shine her special moonlight all around! :) Of course now with the Fallen leaves all around she casts a Fallen glow.


So autumn has Fallen all over my bookcase in my breakfast room. The air feels cooler, soup sits simmering on the stove and...

...the leaves are blowing all around! :)

Happy Fall Y'all!

I'm joining Our Dear Artie at Color Outside the Lines for Vignette Friday
and
Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Try to Remember

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow,
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender that
Dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender that
Love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember
Altho you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
Without the hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December our hearts should remember and follow
~ sung by The Kingston Trio

  15. Shelia I LOVE the barrister bookcase in your breakfast room! I love the idea of using these in the kitchen area to store cookbooks. Your Fall decor is just lovely and as always, I love visiting your beautiful home. Happy Fall my sweet friend.

    Btw, I'm feeling great! No morning sickness at all (I was lucky not to have it with any of my pregnancies). Just starting to get the nursery ready.

  16. Oh, Shelianess, how I have missed YOU!

    This is just what I needed... you've gotten me in the mood for fall. Where has the time gone? It still seems like July to me. I missed the months of August and September!

    Love your blocks that say fall and the rooster with the fallness around him. You go such cute vignettes.

    Sending you warm hugs. Just up for air, but I will hope to be back in a week or so. Lots of catching up to do both here and in my house which is a disaster.

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  17. Dear Shelia, I'm so enjoying your fallen looks. Every time I visit your blog I want to be 'fallen' too. Trouble is, I have no fallen stuff. Now, how many years will it rtake for me to accumulate even half of your fallen things? And how soon should I start collecting, lol. Have a blessed weekend, my friend.

    Hugs
