Fall Foliage for Pink Saturday

What about that misleading title?  I have no fall foliage to show you so my foliage will have to be indoor color!  We closed our antique store, The Roost, in Round Rock and will reopen next month in The Austin Antique Mall.  This round shelf unit was in there so instead of storing it I put it in the living room and it’s not leaving!

I love being able to put so much stuff on it since I don’t have many other places to display Halloween decorations.

And I can hang stuff on them!  Here’s one of the pumpkins that I made a few years ago. I sewed a million for a church bazaar.

This is my older grandson when he was two – my little Buzz Lightyear.

And here’s my younger grandson.  He started a new school and comes to our house after school several times a week and it’s wonderful being able to spend more time with him.

This is what  I replaced my pie safe with.  Those silhouettes are my mother and dad and my two grandsons and are about my favorite things.

And just so you know – we do have some fall foliage in Texas…just not my yard!

Where the bigtooth maples turn spectacular colors of red, orange and yellow; and nature proves that Texas does have four seasons, after all.
I hope these Maples never find their way back home!

Have a great weekend and stop by Beverly’s Pink Saturday for a look at more fall foliage.


  1. HPS! I love, love, love that black piece of furniture that holds those wonderful family silhouettes and your TV set!! That round shelf is also PERFECT to display your seasonal decor. . .love your grands photos!!!!

    And WOW. . .what spectacular maple trees!! One good thing about not having them in your yard, however, is that you don't have to deal with all of those leaves! :) In our old yard, we had 7 enormous trees. . .which we loved for their beauty and their shade, but they made fall brutal with the leaves we had to deal with. When we moved here, we only planted two trees in the front yard. . .and none in the back yard. At times I wished we would plant more, then I watch the folks in the older houses in our neighborhood with their huge trees. . .and I am thankful we didn't. :)

    Just returned from getting my picket for the run in the morning...and dang left knee has a little hurt going on in it. I haven't done anything since Tues and don't know what's going on with it. Guess I'll see how it feels in the morning and decide how to approach the run then. I may be spending time walking.

    Gotta get my clothes ready for my extremely early run (it starts at 7:20...have to leave here at 5:45.....I'm nuts and my hubby thinks so, too! ) :)

    Have a great weekend.....are you HS footballing tonight?
