Welcome to my part of the 2021 Fall Home Tour hosted by lovely Marty at A Stroll Thru Life! I couldn’t be more honored to be on the tour again and I am right in the middle of two of my very favorite bloggers, Yvonne from StoneGable and Shayna from The Woodgrain Cottage (she’s like a celeb to me….I’ve been following her forever!) Let me say upfront, I do not belong in this group…I completely understand that I am out of my league here. My blogging skills are mildly acceptable and I know that I am not consistent with my content. But I love to take photos and share them and I am really appreciative of the time you spend here at Quarters One.
Another confession before we go further…I have not yet begun to decorate for Fall. We are at the beach and, no matter what the calendar says, we are still firmly planted in summer weather and some of life’s chaos. I am going to share a lovely fall evening, I haven’t shared before, that I had with my dearest friends last fall when we gathered at our cabin in the mountains.
Limelights straight from the garden.
My beautiful friend, Trish, arranging the flowers!
My favorite plates from Deruta, Italy.
Melissa and I have been friends for over 30 years, she has visited me in nearly every place we’ve been stationed. Beautiful inside and out!
I collected (with Melissa’s help!) a pile of these soft faux fur blankets from Home Goods, we use them all the time for dinners on the porch that turn a little chilly!
The menu was pasta with veggies, an apple and pecan salad, lots of bread and wine!
Isn’t it all so pretty? I can’t really take credit for this evening because, although everything belongs to me and the cabin is ours…we took turns cooking and setting the table each evening we were together. This evening was one I did not really have a hand in. Many thanks to Melissa, Trish, Linda, Elizabeth, and Karen for a spectacular fall dinner and besties weekend!
With Gratitude, Shand
