Bittersweet

I received the welcomed message last week – the bittersweet is here!

A friend carries on a family tradition, passed down from mother to daughter. The brother/son in Massachusetts does the gathering and shipping and my friend packages and delivers.

It arrives nestled in brown kraft paper and tied with bright ribbons – this year she upped her game adding cute calling cards…

I love the colors and the way that the tiny green buds pop open to reveal the bright orange…

perfect for ushering in autumn…

After being out of town for the weekend I finally got motivated to bring a few autumnal touches to OPP and it was about time!

The wreaths on the front door needed refreshing so off with the hydrangeas…

and bring on the bittersweet…

just enough yellow and orange to make it feel like fall…

and this will be perfect until Halloween when something spookier will need to come out…

while I was at it, I washed down my shiny black door and turned the “8” right side up (a well meaning individual here replaced my numbers after having the door lacquered but alas the 8 was hung upside down and has been driving me crazy)…

on to the dining room where I filled my faux bois trophy cup up to the brim with bittersweet…

I sit at the dining room table to work quite a bit and so I will be able to enjoy it every day…

and here it will probably take me all the way to Thanksgiving…

I had purchased the mushrooms on a trip to Point Clear earlier this summer and thought they worked well with the bittersweet…

now that I had fall at the front door I thought it best to run out and grab some fall foliage for the entrance hall…

I like to keep this box filled up with something seasonal…

I think it feels a little cooler already!…

we will certainly be glad to welcome fall…

Let me know if you need any bittersweet – word is that a second shipment arrived!
