Last week, Gary and I took a short drive just outside of town, and had fun taking pictures of all the autumn beauty around us. This is one of my favorite barns, it always begs for a picture.
We always love driving over the river, the trees were beautiful!
In town, the lumber yard is busy, busy, and full of timber.
This is my favorite little silo, I love how it is tucked behind the tree.
Here is the silo from a different angle so you can see the whole thing.
I always enjoy a drive through our surrounding countryside, I love all the trees, old barns and outbuildings. Getting out for a short drive is always refreshing to me. I'm glad we were able to go when we did, because a few days later we had such a blustery day a lot of the trees lost a good portion of their leaves.
The house is all decorated for Thanksgiving, and full of my autumn treasures. I love my little Yankee Candle Nut Babies.
Most of our fall decor pieces are old favorites that we enjoy bringing out every year. This year I was excited when I found a few new pieces, this darling little fox is one I added this year, he was calling my name from a fall clearance shelf. He is so cute, I'm not sure he will get packed away, he may have to stay out year round!
I also added two pieces to my tin wind-up toy collection, and I thought they looked nice among the fall decor. I fell in love with this tin toy, the loggers are sawing through a log! I love the little mushrooms along the bottom border!
Here is a video of this toy in action.
Just when I thought I was done adding to my tin toy collection for the time being, I came across these pecking chickens, and couldn't resist. I love chickens and miss raising them, so this little flock will have to tide me over for now.
Here they are in action.
So that is my fall home. :) Thanks for stopping by!
