Happy Saturday

I took down a small framed item and replaced it with a blue and white platter.

I like it because it carried out the blue and white theme of my lamp. I found a platter hanger while I was organizing in my attic. Wish I had found it sooner.

I found this on Instagram and it's perfect for my #illustratedquotes hashtag, isn't it? Posted by @susan.steadman here.

I am dressed in my outwork clothes and there is still so much to do before the cold weather sets in. Have a GREAT weekend, everyone. xo

Hi Rosemary!

I sure like the blue and white platter near that pretty lamp. Very pleasing to the eye.

Our nights are getting chilly (which is okay with me!) and we're trying to get ready for winter. Our son-in-law is a farmer, and we all try to pitch in to help. It looks as though harvest might start next week. It's an exciting time!

You take good care of yourself, Rosemary. So nice to see your post!

Hi Pam -- Hope you are having a nice September so far. xo, Rosemary

Your platter certainly looks good in the corner of your room, and works so well with your other blue and white.
The season is certainly changing now. Yesterday I received my winter flu jab and this morning have woken up to a gale and lashing rain. There's certainly a nip in the are and I guess it's time to look out those warm woollies.

You always have grand fun with your decorating. Looks great. Love that quote. btw, did you see this post about BP:

Tasha T -- Good for you, getting your flu shot (jab) already. I usually wait until October to get mine and I will get the new Covid vaccine too. I'm glad you like the blue and white platter on the wall. I am enjoying it too. It suddenly got nippy here and we had the rain and gale winds over the weekend too. Fall is in the air but no leaves have started changing colors yet. xo, Rosemary

Mia, Thanks for the link to Instagram. How interesting that Beatrix Potter was inspired by this gentleman's embroidered pocket in the V&A museum and had the mice reproduce it in The Tailor of Gloucester, one of my favorite books by her. Thanks for finding it. xo, Rosemary
