One of the first signs of fall here are the berries and leaves on our dogwood trees beginning to turn red and the cardinals feasting on them everyday.
The berries on the nandina bushes turn from green to this beautiful burgundy color and eventually to bright red. My Mr Rabbit vase is the perfect container for them.
Oops, you can't see his little face... there it is!
You can see here how the berries are changing color.
If you've followed me for very long you will know that I love blue and white and yellow. I don't know what got into me the other day but I had an urge to make an orange and white quilt! Orange is definitely a color I seldom use in my house. I often don't even have an orange pumpkin for Halloween. Maybe it was because I covered a little pumpkin in orange and white polka dots ( I'll tell you about that project tomorrow).
Maybe it was because we go to Elevation church and our logo is orange and white. Whatever possessed me, I made a little quilt, just big enough to cover a small table or drape over the arm of a chair.
I haven't actually finished the quilting but put it on the table anyway until I can get time to finish it!
Orange and blue are complimentary colors so they go together very well. The Goodwill pumpkin that I painted white with blue leaves can be all purpose fall, or ........
turn him around and he's all ready for Halloween!
I took down my blue and white quilt and hung this one. The warmer colors are cosier for fall and the orange color of the tablecloth picks up the orange colors in the quilt.
I have to go to work now but could you come back tomorrow and have a cup of tea with me? I'd love to have a longer visit with you.
Hope to see you tomorrow
