MacKenzie-Childs Table Setting and Painting on Fabric...

Everything seems to coordinate with the Courtly Check pattern by MacKenzie-Childs...


...the black flower market salad dishes are new to my collection...


...and they match my new painted tablecloth...


...did you know that you can paint on fabric?  The fibers in cotton fabric absorb the acrylic paint and it won't wash out!


The painted fabric is trimmed in black and white striped fabric to tie in with the checks on the dishes...


...and the M-C glassware...


....it was a perfect setting for salad and pasta...


....our large outdoor table set has been stored away for the winter...


...so this small, folding table was perfect for 2...


...napkins were tied around the flatware so they wouldn't blow away in the wind...


...and the highball glasses were used for water - no wine with dinner tonight...


...these wrought iron stands are perfect for enamel bowls...


...because when you put anything in or on enamel, it holds the heat, so these stands keep the bowls off the table!


We are enjoying the last few warm days of dining al fresco!

The Color of September

Last month I posted that the color of August was yellow....September was similar however it is a little more brilliant and warmer, mostly a golden yellow and gold!

The color gold is the color of extravagance, wealth, riches, and excess, and shares several of the same attributes of the color yellow.



The beach has closed...


...the boats are going into storage...


...the "No Hunting" signs are posted...


...school is back in session...


...and the pumpkins are being picked...


...the sun shadows are warming up...


...the decorating has brought out some warm golden colors...


...and the autumn glow shines in each sunset!


Happy Golden September!

The Pumpkin Patch Opens in Cicero, Signs of Autumn arriving....


A few miles down the road is the Pumkin Patch - the owner named it so because children never pronounce the missing "p"!


We used to take our daughters there every year, when they were young, to pick out their pumpkins...


...and it has been fun to see how it has grown through the years with hayrides and treats ...


...it a visit there has developed into a seasonal event for the community...


...My "Traveling Tote" enjoyed a visit with the owners...


...and there were many "Photo Ops" that I couldn't resist...


...and Miss Kenzie couldn't pass up the chance to flirt with the scarecrows...


...she is the perfect size to fill with pumpkins, apples and sunflowers in the fall...


and checks looks so stunning in the pumpkin piles!


Right down the road from there is a new little vineyard...

...and a little sunflower field!

All of these are signs that autumn is arriving in Central NY!

UPDATE:  The Pumkin Patch was just listed as one of the best Pumpkin Patches in Upstate NY!
