"Oh, what a beautiful morning, Oh, what a beautiful day"...... I just can't keep that song from my lips this morning. I adore the cool mornings of Autumn....cinnamon coffee, a few soft lamps glowing, the fragrance of "Spiced Pumpkin" wafting through the house.
Here is look around my dear Honey Hill Farm as she sports her fall fashions......
I was delighted to find that my little pumpkins fit just right on the rounded shelves on the front of our old pump organ. I don't think I have ever posted a picture of this old gal....she works....and believe me, WORKS is the word if you want to pump out an entire song!
This is the coziest corner in the front parlour! (Sorry the photo is so dark, but I took these in the wee hours of the morning)
Our piano is always obliging, no matter how I "dress" her....
This little vignette sits right under an old wall phone here in the parlour. We have dozens of bills and checks that belonged to my Husband's Great Aunt and Uncle (they lived here at Honey Hill before us). They date back as far as 1900! It is so fun to display them and see just what folks were paying for things here on our farm so long ago. Many of the businesses are long gone, but a few are still here...isn't that just adorable?
I am working on the entryway decorations and have a banner yet to make. I also am creating a small display to put under a cloche.....it's not very big, but it has been a challenge to find anything that fits. I finally gave up and I am making a few of the things myself.
Sewing continues on my "winter" curtains for the front parlour. I am re-purposing an old curtain into a pair of new valances, complete with Victorian looking trim that I was so fortunate to find at JoAnn's. I plan to pair them with my velvet drapes and lace inset curtains. We will be cozy come winter!
I will close now, as I have much to attend to....I do hope you enjoy your day and take time to enjoy this fine season...
