So here we are in the middle of October.  Can you freaking believe it?  It's like time was "walking" and now it's on "rollerblades"......speeding along at a rapid pace.  

I say "slow the heck down mister"!

The other night when I got home from Highpoint my husband went into the bathroom and I decided to hide around the corner and scare him when he walked out.  Y'all it was so funny my legs went weak from laughing so hard and I fell to the floor.  

I seriously thought he was going to hit me but I was quick and ran:)  God.....I love a good scare!

OK....I have some random inspiration with pictures and thoughts from my 3 days in Highpoint for you today.

First up was CR Laine and they were sporting some green!

I took these because I LOVE this bench....with the curved arm and straight legs.

Over at Lee Industries some pretty chairs!

Lee has tons of "relaxers" now!

I love this application with the stripe fabric in different directions.

And the spacing of the nailheads here.....

 I still saw lots of blue and I love it mixed with tan.

Next up are pillows from Ryan Studio

Could have spent all day in this booth:)

I love this modern take on the spool chair from Noir.

This gallery wall from Soicher Marin gave me some good inspiration!

Took a tour at Bernhardt where I think they had 500 new introductions to the line!

Loved the shape of this banquet below.

The chair below was a swivel and SO comfy! Looks like a big marshmallow right? 

Y'all have seen me post about this Currey and Co piece in black but this finish was new to the market.

Oly got me all giddy with this gorgeous color!

For all you romantics out there.....

This color is still a fav.

What ch'all think about pink and orange?

More yellow tones......

There was so much more but I am afraid you've fallen asleep with your coffee in your hand by now.

Well wake the heck up......it's FRIDAY!


Last Garden Tour of the Autumn Season

By // No comments:

As we are coming to the end of October
we are also coming to the end of our garden
season for another year.

                                                          So, I thought you might like one
                                                          last tour. Today,is also the last day
                                                          for my Japanese visitors for this year.

                                                              We have many different varieties of
                                                              hydrangeas in our garden and I
                                                             especially love them late in the season
                                                             when they take on their pink hues and
                                                             add beauty to the late season garden.

                                                                Virginia Creeper adding color to the
                                                                end of our old barn.

                                                         We had a heavy frost a few nights ago so
                                                         the garden was covered in frost when I
                                                         took these shots.

                                                                         Virgina creeper at it's best.

I love this late blooming monkshood.

                                                                      The arbor that Andrew built adds color
                                                                      all year. Did you notice the Virginia Creeper
                                                                      going all the way to the top of the spruce tree?
                                                                      It will travel if left unchecked.
                                                                  Martha's Garden in autumn.
A Sweet Autumn Clematis growing over
 another of the arbors that Andrew built.

My red and white antique quilt drying
on the line with the sumac in all it's autumn glory
behind it.

                                                                Now that we have had a heavy frost it will
                                                                soon be time to clean up the garden for winter,
                                                                cutting down all the perennials and hauling them
                                                                to our compost pile.
                                                                    One of the first arbors Andrew built for me
                                                                    about 26 years ago.
                                                                  The Boathouse (also built by Andrew and
                                                                  one of our sons). This was taken a couple
                                                                 of weeks ago.
                                                                Still a few roses blooming even
                                                                 with the frost.

                                            We have had amazing weather this fall with some days
                                                       still over 20 degrees Celsius, and beautiful autumn colors
                                                       but soon it will be November so we know it can't last and
                                                       the good news is winter has it's own beauty and the gardener's
                                                       get a rest!

                                                                                 Hope you enjoyed a late season tour
                                                                                 of our garden.

                                                                                                    Take care,
