Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Fall In the Dining Room

Fall is subtle at Linderhof
Pumpkins, bittersweet, mums
In the house and in the garden

Not overwhelming
But subtle

The antique dough bowl on the dining room table
Filled with pumpkins, gourds and bittersweet.

It shall remain through Thanksgiving
lending a touch of Fall.

(Although the two bigger pumpkins may become
pumpkin bread, muffins or pie!
I bought sugar pumpkins this year
To use as well as to display!)

Looks perfect to me, Martha!

Sometimes simple works best.

And YUM to actually USING your pumpkins as they are intended, yay!

Very sweet! I kept things simple this year too and I like it much better.

Lovely dough bowl arrangement, dear friend!!!
I'm so~o~o ready for some Autumnal weather on our side of the Prairie. . .enough of this 80's+ stuff!!! Guess I should count my lucky stars we've not had to run the heater and are saving pennies on the budget!!!
