  1. You live in such a lovely place! It's definitely snowy and Christmas-y like where I live. But I guess that's not such a bad thing :)

  2. It all looks so dry, I'm so used to live in squelchy swamp conditions.
    What a beautiful skirt.

    Such a lovely place. I too like the fall colors but not raking leaves.

  7. It looks beautiful (and so do you). It must be almost impossible to think of Christmas if you're not freezing to death shrouded in coats and woollens! xxx

  8. We are headed to the big apple this weekend and hoping the cooler temps and city vibe will get us into the groove. The 80 degree temps here certainly aren't cutting it! Love your shoes!!!
    Happy weekend to you sweet friend.

  10. My kids live in San Diego. We plan on moving there as soon as our place in OR is sold-cannot wait to have a mild X-mas season again ( we had 'em in TX and AUS as well...) Love your path through the trees BTW :)

  11. I love your menswear-inspired outfit. You look absolutely smashing Janet. There is enough winter here in Calgary to put me in the Christmas spirit. Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. Hi Janet,

    It looks like you are still having fine weather! We had our first layer of snow today :-). It felt like Christmas already.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  14. A cool breeze fluttered in to our Brisbane Australia home (where it is close to 80 degrees here and getting hotter) when I saw your beautiful autumnal garden scene.... very refreshing.
    A question - what camera do you use? Your photos are beautiful.

  26. I love your garden Janet. And I agree with the commenter above: your photos are beautiful. I suspect it's the photographer more than the old Canon that has the skill...

  27. Dear Janet,
    I have recently discovered your blog, how wonderful it is. I am not very familiar with the blog world or with the computer for that matter but your blog makes me want to use the computer and explore. I love your style, your home decor and your simplicity. It is a great encouragement to see people trying to simplify in this day in age. By the way, this is the first time I comment on any blog and I have thought long and hard about it, but I had to let you know how wonderful it is that you have let us in your life. Thank you, Liz
