Our piano looked like this last month.  I posted about it here.
The witches, jack-o-lanterns, dark sky, and trick-or-treaters have been replaced by turkeys and leaves for Thanksgiving.

This lamp was in my childhood bedroom.  The girl does have a sheaf of wheat and a sickle, so I think she’s kind of Fall looking. 
I copied the Autumn Days music from my childhood lesson book, and as you can see, my music teacher had a lot of corrections to write on the score.  I obviously wasn’t destined to become a musician.  (I’m still trying to figure out what I am destined to become!)
Y’all know how crafty I’m NOT.  But, Tricia at Simplicity in the South made it so easy for me to make a banner.  She generously gave away the download.  All I had to do was print and cut.  Isn’t it pretty?

Alma, at The Tablescaper still doesn’t have power, but being the dedicated and fabulous blogger that she is, she is doing her linkup this week!  I’m still praying for all of those who were affected by Sandy.  UPDATE REGARDING SOCKS FOR SANDY CAMPAIGN:  The need and the response are so great that the time to send packages has been extended.  Plenty of hats and gloves have been received, but socks and underwear (for both sexes and all sizes) are still needed.  If you haven’t yet participated and would like to send a package, or if you’d like to send another package, please see my post here.
I am linking to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper.  I’m giving thanks for my friends in Blogville.  laurie

The air is crisp. The leaves are falling.  There are yellows, golds, and browns all around us.  I can smell Fall in the air.  Let’s take a stroll down the street.
tbl w chr Hear the leaves, rustling under your feet?  Did you notice the Fall signs around town?  The plaque picturing children carving a pumpkin was a gift to the town from my friend, Susie.  The pumpkin sign was a gift to the town from my friend, Karen Harvey Cox of A Scrapbook of Inspiration.
plaque There are two beautiful churches on this street.
CHURCHES Wagons filled with pumpkins are delivering to the markets.
pmpkn crts  Look!  The Grocer is advertising pumpkin pies!  Let’s go get one!
GROCER And let’s stop at the Cider Mill and get some of that delicious cider to take home with us.
Whew! We’ve arrived at my house!
HOME Take one last look down the street, and then we can go sit on the back porch and have a slice of pumpkin pie and a cup of warm cider.

[I’ve purchased everything on the tea table at estate or garage sales, except the “vintage” tablecloth, which I purchased new in 1970, as a souvenir of a trip to Pennsylvania Dutch country!!  (Yikes!  It’s hard to admit that I could have purchased something new, and now it could almost be vintage!)  The plates (purchased at an estate sale) simply say “hand painted” on the bottom.]
I’m linking this post to Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.  (Marty, It’s not really a vignette, but it is on a tabletop, so I hope this street will qualify for Tabletop Tuesday.)
I’m also linking to Tea Time Tuesday at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor.  (Katherine, I didn’t serve tea, but I did use a tea pot, and my flowers are in the sugar and creamer!  I hope this works for Tea Time Tuesday.)
I enjoyed taking a stroll and having pie and cider with you.  Please come back again soon. laurie
