Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! I was at the grocery store today and decided to pick up some mini pumpkins and preserved leaves. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with them but I put them on my silver platter that I picked up at a flea market a few years ago and added some tea lights and my crystal candlesticks. I think I only paid $10-$15 for this tray and I use it for so many things! Shells in the summer, pumpkins in the fall and ornaments during the holidays! If you have the chance to buy a large silver tray, do so! You won't regret it!
My apartment is so summery I really struggle with Autumn decor. It doesn't help that I live in California and the summer weather seems to stay here far after Autumn arrives. We've had a cold rainy week here so it's sort of put me in the mood. By cold, I mean the highs are only in the 60s! It's amazing how cold I've been and really that is not that cold! We've already been running the heater!
I'm going to Lake Tahoe in a week and a half and they already have snow! I can't wait!
Oh, and I have to say (since I'm a native of the San Francisco Bay Area)....GO GIANTS!!!
Note: I've had to adjust my blog settings to not allow "Anonymous" comments. For years I've been getting hit with so much SPAM that I previously adjusted it so that comments left on posts older than 10 days had to be approved by me. Even that wasn't working. Every day I was probably getting over 50 SPAM messages that I had to review. I really don't get that many legitimate Anonymous comments so I just disabled it.
