Autumn decorations

This is a fine old set of shutters, all white and chippy as are so popular right now. After a trip to the local Re-Store (Habitat for Humanity), where my friend, Mary, bought a new set, she gave me her old ones.  I'm thrilled with the size and condition. They help block off a drafty hall.

I love using squash and Autumn flowers and leaves for decorations at this, my favorite time of year.

I have a garland of them above my old armoire, and a wreath above my red chair.
It has been snowing in our local mountains which is making the skiers and snowboarders really happy. Mt. Hood is world famous for its fantastic ski runs. Last Olympics there were plenty of athletes up there practicing. The Timberline Lodge is beautiful, and there is the Mt. Hood Railroad, that goes up that always has special events and excursions.

Very pretty! Using the leaves and squash is so natural and lovely. Adds such a nice feeling of fall to the inside of the house.
