Signs of a New Season







I like dried flowers the most in the fall. They seem most natural this time of year when all of nature is ripening, seeding, and expending its last effort of the growing season. I'll be checking out fields for all manner of dried beauty in the weeks to come.




The roses you see here are the same that are in my blog header and on the sidebar where they were still pink from their early drying days. They have evolved into a more amber hue with the passing months.














A lot of things in my rooms can remain unmoved for weeks and weeks as we stay busy visiting, traveling, taking care of business, and just spending time outdoors as summer whizzes by. But I just changed up my dining room picture frame collage a little for a new season.




And a little tinkering and tweaking lends the suggestion of a farmhouse in fall. . . . 
































I'm still enjoying my wicker planter in here much as it is.

























The old reliable vintage high chair still holds court in this corner too. A lot gets temprarily tucked in out of the way here to blend in while it finds its place in Cabin & Cottage world! Haha!





So we are enjoying a quiet unfolding as summer slips away into fall.
 It will all be official soon!

I hope it's a lovely time for you too!

Your nod to the end of summer is beautiful as always, Jacqueline. Enjoy every pretty day as much as you are able.

If I hadn't worked all day this approaching eve would have been a stunning al fresco dining - it's about as good as it gets weather wise. Oh, and the brilliant blue of the sky - I bet it is an amazing sunset tonight.

Hugs.

I love the dried hydrangeas. Our hydrangeas did not bloom this year and I am not sure why. Beautiful photos.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Dried flowers are so pretty this time of year...I'm putting out hydrangea and lavender now. Lovely photos!

Pamela Gordon said...

I like your muted rusts and browns with whites for your fall decor. Always beautiful. It's definitely feeling like fall here lately. Frost warning for tonight! I've covered up my annuals hoping to save them.

It is always pleasure to visit your blog:)

Love all your photos!! The lace, white wicker, roses, and that adorable white enamel colander!! Just in the past couple weeks, TJMaxx and Marshalls had white enamel colanders with red trim and some with blue. I scooped up several! They're perfect for picking tomatoes in and bringing them in to wash. Maybe not quite as much character as your old version, but so dang cute!
Your photos are so beautiful, they ease me into letting go of summer more happily!!

Jaqcueline, I've just spent a relaxing time looking over and over at your post. The way you put everything together is just so pleasurable. I don't know any other way to describe it..Happy Thursday and cooler weather..Judy

These photos are so glorious they make my heart sing. I would never imagine so much white would be so warm!

All so lovely.

Does your New Mexico weather get that cool in the fall? We are in our hottest days in September.

I like the vintage frames painted white. I have two and I put mirrors in them and hung them up in my master bedroom. Love the look. I cannot wait for fall. It's been 100 here all week.

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

It's always so pretty at your blog.

I have to confess before I got to the end of you post, I was in the kitchen putting old wooden clothespins into an antique Mason jar.

Enjoy your day!

My kind of seasonal tones.
Love the frame with the hare postcard. We see a lot of wild rabbits running freely here looking ahead for what they can feed on and burrell in making a cozy home.
Love all the whites and tea-stained inspiration here, I wonder what winter will bring over here, my favorite season :)
Sorry but I am a winter girl, they say the season you were born in seams to be the season one is most fond of.
My daughter is a fall baby and true, she just loves fall.

What are you Jacqueline???

The last roses of summer are always the best to dry...a reminder of summers past.

I love how you take simple pieces, gather them together, and make such beautiful vignettes. You speak as if it's an effortless feat...yet it's a gift...and you have mastered it to perfection.

Your dried flowers are beautiful, Jacqueline. They seem to be perfect for Fall; more than any other time of year. I love their soft colors. Your bunny print looks great.
