A New Broom



Perhaps in reaction to the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing (wanting to change what I can) and certainly because October is upon us, I found myself sweeping away Summer's blue and white décor and freshening up things with Fall colors. Even the orchids got moved out of their white pots into more autumnal toned containers.


Away with the dusty sea shells and blue and white porcelain in the corner cupboard and in with an odd assortment of painted gourds and animal skulls, arrowheads and fossils, and various other items that (to me) speak of ancestors and times long past.

Wash those doggy- smelling denim covers, air the pillows, and give them their autumn look. 


Down with the paintings of white lilies and up with the quilters and the  fall-toned landscape. Put the little houses where Josie can see them . . .

Oh, yes, and I bought a new broom . . . to be ready for Halloween? John asked.

That would be telling.

What a lovely home, very warm and inviting conversations! Happy autumn and October! Broom away, in whatever useful means you may use it!

What was really cool was that when Josie and her folks came up (bringing dinner) last night, Josie immediately noticed the changes and gave little crows of delight as she pointed to each new thing. She was particularly enchanted with the picture of the quilters.)

I am impressed with the quilters picture as well. Love your home Vicki, warm, cozy and inviting.

Yes. Something about the cooler temps and turn of the calendar to October, makes sweeping out the old and bringing on the new season ... good.

Love the view! Is that a fantasy painting of Ethan and Justin? Love fall in NC! 💝

My friend Mary Maupin did the picture of Justin and Ethan many years ago. They insisted on a dragon.
