Show & Tell Friday for October 9

Today I want to share some of my fall favorites... things I get out or use every fall. It's my favorite season and I have slowly collected some fall items over the years which I enjoy every autumn.

First, a couple of little fall magazines. I was fortunate to inherit a stack of these New Hampshire Troubadour magazines. The first one is from September 1950.

October 1950.

In recent years, the New Hampshire Troubadour has begun being published again. (For more information, you can check out New Hampshire Troubadour .) Here is the current issue:

I use this fall basket for reading material in the living room.

This fall teapot is a real favorite of mine.

The fall spoon rest was a gift from my daughter.

I made several fall hot mats a few years back. Here is one of them in the center of the dining room table, with a Fiesta sugar & creamer set on top.

There are silk autumn leaves in the garland over the picture window.

A closer look at a corner of the garland.

And there's my autumn Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to My Romantic Home.

Happy Show & Tell Friday!

  9. I love your vintage magazines! I always get a kick out of looking at the advertisements! Thank you so much for sharing!

  10. Thanks, ladies, for stopping by and leaving all of those sweet comments. It was a blessing to have each and every one of you visiting here at my kitchen table.

    Please stop in anytime and visit. I don't post every day -- my life is much too busy for that -- but the archives are full of recipes and other ramblings!

    God bless you all!

  11. Thank you for telling us about this magazine. I have been getting it now for a few months and it is so fun to look through. I am planning on keeping them. I wish I had kept all my Mom's old "Yankee" magazines... but just too much stuff to move about.

    Thank you for sharing with us.

    It's feeling a little too much like winter for me now though I think this was one of the most spectacular falls for color, don't you think so? I haven't seen it so pretty in quite a few years. Usually we'll have some really nasty weather or early snow that drops all the leaves or the color just isn't there. I hear there's going to be snow tonight though... might be the end.

    God Bless,
    Mrs. D
