Ah, Autumn....

My goldfinches have finally arrived, just in time for them to start their migration. I put out two thistle 'socks' and they are loaded nearly all day long! It was impossible to get a good photo as the minute I step to the window, they fly away! This is the best I could do. They are all in their dull fall plumage, but earlier in the season they are a pretty yellow.

Basil kitty sure likes to be out in the yard on these cool, sunny days! I call him my 'container kitty', 'cuz if he can get in it, he will!

I've been trying to get a little decorating done, but it's slow going. Need to go out to the garden and cut some corn stalks. Here are a couple of my favorite fall cuties.

I'll be sure to share more once I get it all out and displayed!

  1. So that's where all my goldfinch went! And you've had snow! It has been colder than normal around Puget Sound, too.
    I'm getting caught up on your postings -- that is a beautiful doily, you are lucky to have it. You made quite a haul on the vintage items. I wonder how that little tool box with the Dutch people on it was used originally.


I'm so happy that you visited my little blog! Thank you for the lovely comment and have a superb day!!
