Fall is in the air, and it makes me so happy!

My sweet children in their Senior Portraits and some of my books! You will see my Grandmother's Iron used as a bookstop; and a jar 1/4 full of pennies--I keep having to grab some!

Little Golden Books illustrated by Eloise Wilkin~~some of my favorites!

Antique dresser is my 'coffee table' in my den--as you can see, books are everywhere! I love decorating books; gardening books; birding books; you name it, I love books!

A Fall Centerpiece for my coffee table in my den, and in the background, yep, you guessed it! more books!
