Hi Bella, summer is ending as you say, and now have to prepare for new seasons changing and different. Each brings its own colors and diversity in options for decoration. For me there is those changes, I live in the land of eternal summer. I am fascinated by the colors of autumn with its new cold winds, and although winter is cold, the season is beautiful. your table scapes are always so beautiful to watch and admire your treasures, which adorn your beautiful home. How nice you can see the silver with pale pink, delicate porcelain and your details. Thanks Bella Rose Marie blessings

Bella~ It is as beautiful as always. You have an artists soul, you know?~ I'm not sure about your weather but I always picture you outside in the garden when it is nice. If you are by Snohomish I don't think you get snow...but your growing season must end, right?

I always picture you with roses...so I will wait so see what you show us when your summer garden has faded away. Hugs, Diana

Mariette said...

Dearest Bella,

That is a very tranquil setting indeed! For you goodbye to summer and for me still having plenty of sun... holding on to it a bit longer. But the cozy evenings inside will soon make up for the lack of sun and light outside!

Sunny greetings from Georgia,
