Snuggle up

These crisp Fall days
 hold such a fascination for me.

The colors of the leaves and sky;
 the critters, (squirrel,s chipmunks, and birds)
 all scurrying around
filling their pantries for the cold winter days ahead.
My old chippy Adirondack chair
calls out for a good book and a hot mug of cider.

I love to mix the patterns of plaid, stripes, and florals.

Pendleton and Scottish blankets are my favorite cuddle on these cool days.

Halloween is over,
but Fall will still be here awhile.

My mums and ferns survived a killing frost last week,
but soon it will be too cold to try to cover them.

I just wanted to say "Thanks" again,
for the great turnout for
 Vintage Inspiration Friday!

We made a trip to St. Louis to visit our kids,
so we were constantly on the go.
Come back Friday, I have some wonderful photos
of the local fun.

I'm joining Kathleen for White Wednesday

and Cindy for Show and Tell Friday

Hope you're having a wonderful week!
(I'm pooped!)



  1. Hi Debra! That looks like a perfect spot for reading and relaxing...great chippiness!!
    Have a great day!
    Tammy :-)

  2. Pretty, pretty! If I were closer I'd sneak into your yard with a stack of magazines and a mug of hot chocolate to spend the afternoon in that chair.

  3. Oh Debra... I just want to crawl in the chair under the blanket...
    it looks so inviting!!! And - guess what!!! It's finally cold today here! Okay... it's only 60... but STILL!!!

    I'll be there in a minute...
    ;-D xoxoxoxo

  4. Such lovely pictures! So homey. Makes one want to snuggle up in that beautiful blanket.

  5. Just look at your beautiful leaves. We cannot even get the darn leaves to fall of our two trees that normally shed this time of year. Our summer keeps lingering and lingering....the trees are so confused. But when they do shed, I'm scooping them up and taking photos of them.

    Your post is so beautiful, Debra. I love your "style" and that you have such fabulous style at that. Hugs to you, Rhonda

  6. Hi dear Debra, your cosy corner is wonderfull,-I love the pillow, and the "fat" wool carpet in your chair--my mums are also going to fade away, very soon----
    Hope you had a wonderfull relaxing time there, with your cider-and book.
    Hugs, Dorthe

  7. Wow! Debra, you have created the coziest settting. Just absolutely love this comfortable, welcoming spot! Love your header too!!!

  8. how lovely....would love to sit there a while...sigh.

  9. Oh Debra, That looks like a nice place to sit and watch the leaves fall from the tree. Have a good day.....Julian

  10. Great pics. Can you still buy Pendleton? I have an aunt who is 92 now, who LOVED Pendleton. I haven't heard that name in years!!!

  11. Love this corner of your backyard, Debra, it is so cozy! I can almost smell mums and fallen leaves

  12. Looks like a great place for a cup of hot tea and some bird watching!

  13. Love your beautiful pictures. The chipmonks here are filling their pantries with food from MY house! They sneak in, fill their mouths with bird seed, then if I happen to see them to chase them out they hold their ground and chatter at me before they take off. The dogs chase them, the cat watches them. Where did I go wrong;)

  14. Debra, that is just the perfect place to snuggle up with a blanket on a crisp and sunny fall day!

  15. Beautiful photos!! I love these Fall days too!

  16. Looks like the best place to be in fall!
    Happy WW!

  47. I guess I just have to be brave and try mixing plaid and stripes, I always feel shy to explore this combo until now. :-)

  48. How inviting. Please, may I sit for awhile? I have some warm cider to share and a pair of wool socks to give you. I'll snuggle in your plaid blanket and be taken away while reading my new book.

    come visit

  49. Your photos are always so beautiful. And I love your new header photo technique. Gorgeous.
