    Shelley, such a great post that gave me all the feeling of fall! It’s finally cooling a bit in Charlotte, so I’ll be able to tackle my entry way and put out pumpkins. Can’t wait!

    Shelley, a lovely roundup of fall. I still must make it to Vermont in autumn! I would love to pull the banana muffin through the screen to enjoy with my coffee. I always love to see your beautiful kitchen. I haven’t joined your Take Me Away party for a couple of months. I haven’t traveled anywhere over the summer, but we are leaving for Jackson Hole, WY this weekend, so I will be back to your amazing travel party! Happy Autumn!
