" Eggplant Chaise I know I normally don't go this dark ' but it went so cute with the pillow." Of coarse I had to bring in some white....Voila!!! Close up of old black trunk I painted and decoupaged with old sheet music.

" Fall At The Ranch'

" The Long and Winding Road that Leads to My Door. " " Fall At The Ranch" The leaves are crunching under foot , You can hear the gurgling of the river and the Elk are coming in the yard at night for there apple tree feast. The smell of Fall is all around me. It is peeking up here on the mountain and soon the winds will blow all the beautiful leaves off there branches. Fall only lasts for but a moment but stays in my heart forever. I LOVE this time of year.... Pictures taken this morning before going to work... I really am so blessed to be living in such a beautiful place...XO Chrisy & Kramer
