The Lady of the Manor is Also the Queen of Halloween!

Earlier this month, Valerie Roberts at Candlelightsupper Style Your Table  was celebrating her 1st Year Anniversary and had a give-away gift perfect for Halloween. Guess what?  
I WON!!!!! 
Isn't this the neatest Halloween spatula?!!  I've used it already to whip up some Chex Mix and a batch of chocolate chip cookies.  They kids are coming home for the weekend.

It's made this "Lady of the Manor" feel like the "Queen of Halloween!!"
Thanks, Valerie, and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

We've been busy doing some work on our property lately.  I'll post more about that soon.  Here are some Fall shots I took while we were working.
I'm wishing you all a very happy (and safe) Halloween! 
I'm also hoping your Fall is crisp and colorful!

(Thanks again, Valerie!!)

Harvest Table

I'm sharing some new dessert plates I found at Wal-Mart this fall.  They are from the Better Homes and Garden's collection and blend nicely with my everyday plates. 
There are two different designs.  One has a pumpkin.
The other displays gourds.
The rust tablecloth is making another appearance.  I used it last week here
I don't usually do complicated centerpieces but Precious Daughter's fiancé picked some cotton on his way back from his mother's home south of here.  She wanted some cotton to use in her home décor and he had an extra plant for me.  The white bolls worked in nicely with the plates so I had to include them!  The only wildflowers blooming now around here are meadow weed so I worked them in too.
Cooler weather will be moving into Missouri this week and the leaves are starting to turn.  Wonderful Hubby and I will be taking a road trip along the Missouri River later in the week and we're hoping for a colorful ride.
Wishing you a beautiful Fall!
Thanks for stopping by!
