Welcome Fall! Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year, when leaves begin to boast their vibrant colors and the anticipation of chilly days ahead, sipping on mugs of hot cocoa and coffee while wearing toasty sweaters. While trees continue to shed their leaves, we yearn to grab our coats, but the temperatures don’t quite match the new season. However, before you know it, all those things we love about autumn are just around the corner. So, dust off your cold weather gear and wait patiently, or not so patiently in my case, for cooler days to come and gloriously signaling that FALL HAS ARRIVED!
Speaking of favorites… Below are two of my cherished fall sentiments, by two writers on the list of my most admired. (All three fall photos are borrowed from Pinterest and can be found on my Autumn board.)
INTRODUCING ROUND HILL VINTAGE MARKET!
I recently discovered an Alamo treasure, a pop up outdoor market of wonderful items for the home and yard. And, the best part is that I met two new friends in the process! Joan Lien of Alamo and Julie Hatter of Walnut Creek were excited to showcase and sell their wares during a three-day event in an outdoor setting on Joan’s property in Alamo. Antiques, vintage pieces and furniture were charmingly displayed along the meandering driveway up and around her front yard. The event was so successful that they are looking ahead to future pop up markets. I’m also very excited to share that I’ll be collaborating with these two lovely ladies! Stay turned for more information on a Round Hill Vintage Market Holiday pop up boutique, sometime after Thanksgiving! (Photo courtesy of Alamo resident, Debbie Ferman.)
SPEAKING OF SELLING ITEMS…
Alamo resident, Rhonda Raphel, let me know that the Community Presbyterian Church in Danville will be hosting a yard sale in their parking lot, 222 W. El Pintado Road, tomorrow, Oct. 6 and Sunday, Oct. 7. Proceeds will go toward helping the victims of the Mendocino fires “The flames are out and the fires are over, but the destruction lingers,” said Rhonda, who mentioned they are in need of more items to sell. If you’d like to also contribute, then head on over today with your donations of home décor, electronics, sports equipment and tools. No clothing or toys, please. Volunteers are accepting donations up to 8 p.m. tonight. For more information (and time of the sale,) please call 925-837-5525.
Happy Fall and let’s chat soon!
