  16. Emily, this is *the cutest* post! You are getting me all excited about fall. :D I love the plates with the churches/cathedrals on them. They are so pretty! Are they also Quimper plates? I do not collect it, so I do not know a lot about it.

    I love fall because of Alabama football: Roll TIde! :D

  34. OK, I gotta start by telling you that pumpkin face on your veranda would give me nightmares! He looks so menacing! Or maybe he's constipated? I don't know...he's just scary-lookin'!!! Congratulations again on your win! That salad dressing will come in handy! Beautiful, vibrant, lively colors in your table! I really like the dishes very much. They are so different and seem to beckon one to come and sit and enjoy the bounty of the season. Perfect for fall! Have a wonderful weekend!

  35. Gosh, So many wonderful things to think about for Fall. Love going to the beach just before Fall.
    the caramel cake looks heavenly and I'm checking out "Piece of Cake". It's probably ITP (inside the Perimeter)in Atlanta. Gorgeous Quimper, of course, Thanks for all the visual 'treats'.
