The last of autumn

The last of the autumn ornaments are long gone.
They have all been replaced.

This is a Stein that sister got for mom. It was made in Germany, and sister found it in an antique store. She fell in love with it, and brought it home for mom. It was very expensive. But sometimes, when its something like this... you just have to have it. And sister thought mom HAD to have it. So mom uses it in our dining room filled with lots of decorations.

Here it is ordained with lovely autumn leaves and cat tails.

The cat tails are real- dad got them from the shore.

Here is a close up of the sparkles on the leaves.

These autumn candles will be away soon too. Mom loves them. We light candles all the time.

She always gets tarts and candles of her favorite smell- and puts them around the first floor of the house so it smells good no matter where she goes!

Those are pretty decorations! I am glad that autumn is gone and winter is here because that means Santa will come soon!

Those decorations are lovely - we're going to miss autumn, winter is just soo cold!

Oh, Georgie got your card - the present is absolutely beautiful! Mommy put it on the fridge right away!

My Mom has candles, too, but usually she forgets to light them!

I love the new picture of Isis at the top of your blog! By the way, how did you get it so that no one can copy your picture ? Is that a feature in blogger ?
