To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

AN AUTUMN VIGNETTE..ENJOYING THE PLAY OF LIGHT AND SHADOW
Are you bringing the fall season into your home?
When you surround yourself with things you love, it seems to have lasting character!
Dried berries and hydrangeas create the arrangements
The autumn season is perfect for displaying some of my favorite Johnson Brothers china
An amber glass turkey....beautiful in sunlight
Muted fall colors of amber, persimmon and goldenrod
