It Must Be Autumn






There's a storm coming today.
Lots of wind and rain.
Tomorrow fall makes another appearance with
low temps in the high 50s and highs in the low 70s.
Yippee! 
I just have to get through the storms today.

The light wasn't good for picture taking, but I did it anyway.

Most of my decorating for Halloween is done --
I picked up this little kitty and his mouse friend
at an after Halloween sale last year.
I giggle everytime I see him.


Cat and Mouse


He likes to have tea!

Lenox Butterfly Meadow


Lenox has made a whole set of dishes called Butterfly Meadow.
This is the fritillary butterfly cup and saucer.
I love the little lady bug on the saucer.
Pretty wavy rims on the teacup and the saucer.

Lovely detail on the cup.



Butterfly Meadow Lenox Cup and Saucer


It must be Autumn if the Pumpkin Spice Bagels are on the grocery shelves!
I'm going to make a nice cup of green tea.
I don't want my tea to compete with the taste of the bagel.
And then I'm going to settle down to read Autumn by Susan Branch.



Autumn is Here!



I'm joining some tea parties today:


Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea!

Pumpkin spice bagels - YUM! And what better to eat them from than those beautiful butterfly dishes.

Like you, I'm looking forward to our promised fall weather tomorrow. It's raining hard at my house just now, so maybe it's on its way.

Snap,
Sounds like a good plan. I am going to take a quick nap and then a cup of tea and maybe some needlepoint!

Very cute! I don't have any fall decorations out, but I did finish bagging up candy bags for the community halloween carnival, so I don't feel too bad about being a bit behind.
I hope these storms were kinder to you. Sad news around my area- one person killed by tornado.

Awww what a cute kitty and mouse and your teacup is lovely. I spotted the ladybug on the saucer. What a sweet surprise. I really think I need that Autumn book of Susan Branch. I just made the bread that she shared the recipe of and it's yummy and full of healthy grains. Happy Tea Day to you, Snap!

Hi,
I love your dishes and your Fall decorations. I got a copy of Susan Branch's Autumn too. I enjoy her cookbooks. Stay safe with the storms coming. I am not used to Tornado watches, but we have them in NC today. Looks like we'll get the bad storms this evening.

Have a wonderful day. You got me in the mood to decorate. I just got back from Massachusetts, and we need a bit of decoration here.

Pumpkin spice is everywhere, I mean everywhere! Nice cat, is it paper mache? Or ceramic. I like that patina. xox

Hi Snap, my pumpkin only goes as far as pie these days. Love the butterfly and dragonfly with the ladybug, lol. I remembered this tea cup as it was a favourite of mine. Cute cat and mouse, the light is perfect for this time of year.
