Welcome Friends, Blog Followers & Readers~ A big thank you to Heather Graham at Stringtownhome Blog for hosting this, her first Harvest Tour of Homes.
While I personally am a red,white,black & navy girl, when I think of fall I do think COLOR. I generally cannot wear the fall colors but I sure can enjoy splashing them all over my world. It's all about God's Creation, Nature, Seasons changing, Harvest of crops. As we get our first warning that Fall is coming -even in south Alabama we begin to see clues around the end of August and early September...I begin to drop a hint now and then about searching the roadsides, wooded areas and roadside parks for natural beauties left for me. I get excited over strewn branches, mosses, lichen, and of course acorns and gnarly branches of almost any specimen.
Ordinary pinecones are worth gathering where ever I find them however; I do prefer uniform shapes and healthy firm cones like those scattered over my cousin's yard in south Georgia. She was amused and wondered if we did not have pine trees in south Alabama.
You have been waiting long enough. It's time to put out the OPEN HOUSE sign. Welcome to the Harrison House, South Alabama.
Come on in-We've been expecting you.
It's a good time to bring out the vibrant green Fiesta. It's not the expensive discontinued color-those are too costly for my taste. The pretty luncheon napkins are a flea market find-Naturally!
I hope you can see that "Oh I love it Lantern" toward the back-yep, you guessed it HALF PRICE at an area 'farm & tractor store." It's lined inside the glass panels with a very small chicken wire.
