I'm back!

Hello everyone! We arrived home Saturday night and we have been busy unpacking and resting before this coming week. I have lots of pictures to share with you, but they are on Phillip's computer which uses a different program than I'm used to. I will figure it all out soon though.

In the meantime, I have some Autumn living room decorations to share. I had planned on posting them while on vacation, but they disappeared thanks to!

I missed visiting with you all and am looking forward to seeing what you have been up to these past few weeks! I'm very behind on email so if you sent me a note, I will get back to you soon!

My sister gave me this lantern several years ago. It's one of my favorite Autumn decorations.

The little cottage was a gift from Phillip. He brought it back from a trip to England many years ago. It holds a tealight candle which lights up all the windows!

Thank you for looking at my Autumn livingroom. I will be by to visit you soon!
