 I managed to get quite a bit accomplished yesterday. I said I had "chores"
and I wasn't kidding. After dusting and running the vacuum cleaner, I
decided to do a little tidying up in the kitchen for good measure.

A few days ago, I needed my pie dish to try a new recipe. I remembered
that I have this wonderful dish with - of course! - acorns adorning it.
 It's been sitting on the counter since after dinner cleanup that night. I just
hated the thought of putting it back in the cupboard where it wouldn't
 be seen. I thought about it for a while and came up with a perfect solution.
 I decided to pretty up the space above our range. Nothing fancy.
Just a nice warm touch of wood in place of a bare, white wall.
 Now, I'll be able to look at my acorn pie plate every time I prepare
something tasty for our family. The added bonus is a little touch of autumn 
decor as we move into our own version of cool weather here in south
Florida. It might get all the way down to 60º overnight. I'm a happy girl.

What do you do to celebrate the seasons? I'd love to know.

Lovely pie plate, Donna! And, it does certainly beat a bare white wall! Enjoy.

I love your plate, perfect for fall! I should really change up the picture I have had FOREVER behind my stove!
