Fallen for Fall at Carriage House

We have officially begun Fall,the beautiful, colourful, "season of plenty",time to "reap what you have sown",and enjoy the "fruits of your labour" season!!
This October we will be celebrating our stores 5th year anniversary. When we first opened we barely had enough to fill the front of our shop, but we decorated with pumpkins,gourds,and corn stalks to made it look like something. Just so we could be open for Applefest!
We love to decorate the shop for each season but Fall is definitely our favourite! The colours are so warm and comforting,I love mixing in the browns and blacks,the ochre and deep reds,and you know what they say..that orange is the new blue!
I love that the sun is shining but the air has a different feel a crisp, fresh, new feeling!
As much as I want to decorate with natural items,(ghost pumpkins and ghost squash can dress up an otherwise plain cabinet just right) I do need to make some sales  so I have brought in some "pretties" that are actually for sale.

I know I posted this pic before but I love it!

You’re everything and more what I imagined you would be from reading your comments on my blog. I’m Heather’s mom who recently found her live donor. I’ve been going down my comment list writing each wonderful person who left such encouraging words. I couldn’t wait to reach you, because I could you’re your genuine warm and humanity shine through. I believe you would have tried to donate if we needed it and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Wowzer! what a fantastic life and store you have! I come from a big family so know what crazy fun you’re having. If I lived near you I’d be one of your regular customers! Growing up my Dad had a funky turquoise Ford pickup truck so seeing yours put a big smile on my face. Thanks for this fun visit. It’s been great to meet you!
Hugs, Cathy
