Ah~h~h. . .Autumn Arrives!

Gray skies, drizzling rain, cooler temperatures,
Ah~h~h. . . Autumn Arrives On Crooked Creektt!!!

My favorite Season of the year is Autumn!
I love the changing of the hues!!!

While Mother Nature is avidly working on the out~of~door hues,
I have been steadily working on changing hues indoors! 

Needing a great amount of assistance, (following my surgery)
"Mr. Ed" was a huge asset in accomplishing the task 
of  adding Autumnal foliage atop  the Entertainment Center.

snarly branches, ivy leaves with green, purple and red berry branches
enliven our upper level Living Room with warm, vibrant Autumnal hues.

Being true to my personal decorating style,
I kept with a streamlined Traditional decor throughout the glass shelves.

choosing a red, gold and creamy ivory color palette
gives an appealing and warming decor as the temperatures continue to drop.

Open shelving below keeps the Autumnal hues
for a cohesiveness within the Entertainment Center.

As a daily reminder to continue to pray for my former students
now serving with the U. S. Marines, I placed their military photos
directly in front of my devotional space.

I continued with the same decor design for the Entertainment Center. 

Red candlesticks with a faux  floral candlering
creates a striking Seasonal contrast to our black mantle clock.

Cooler temperatures, drizzling rain and gray skies
might be the order of the day out~of~doors,
but by adding warm and vibrant hues to the Entertainment Center. . .

 Before photos of the Entertainment Center
can be see @ Summer Fanfare. (here)

On Crooked Creektt 
is embracing the Seasonal changes taking place out~of~doors.

Ah~h~h. . .Autumn Arrives!

Until next time. . .

Pat - your fireplace mantel looks so pretty! Love the autumny garland you added, especially surrounding those antique oil lamps. :) Hope you are healing and back on your feet soon, girlie!

Everything looks really pretty, Pat.
Well, I got myself in the danged ole GOOGLE MESS, too. Now, I guess I have to make a new blog and it makes me really mad that Google does this to people. It's just not right to take access away from a blog developed in 2007. Just not right.
AND, now when I leave a comment and people click on my name, it takes them to the dreaded GOOGLE PLUS site, which I hate. I am trying to figure out how to get out of it all but don't think I can. How do you put your blog address on that hated Google Plus page??

Autumn is my favorite time, too! I love your arrangement on top of your entertainment center - It has the same elements that my mantle has. I have an old window and two kerosene lamps. I was also looking at a previous entry, where you took us along on a shopping trip and I saw two things that I would have snatched up had I been with you - darn! I"m following now, can't wait to come back. Leslie

I'm glad you and your blog are back! (and I am back after being away a lot.) It sounds like you are "live" again and have things working. I love that old clock!

Oh my! So good to be able to leave a comment with you! I hope you are doing well. I'm glad you're feeling well enough to give a thought about about decorating. A very nice collaboration! I hope you have a lovely fall!
