WELCOME to FALL and my new blog!

As this is the beginning of the Fall season, I thought I would share with you some pictures of the beautiful trees and Fall colors here in VA. After a rain and wind storm two nights ago, these same trees are now just about bare. I love the change of seasons, don't you? And I love this beautiful world God gave us to care for and to enjoy.

I also have a few pictures of some unusual 'vintage items' we saw when we recently traveled to Minnesota. It is a LONG distance from Virginia to Minnesota, however, with family living there, we had a grand & glorious time. One day we visited a big apple orchard which was packed with people. As there was a long line waiting to pick apples, we went in the old barn which is now a 'store' by all rights. With only a little time remaining, we bought some yummy warm apple cider and I took a few pictures. I love VINTAGE things and this place was full of them Actually, most of them are older than vintage, they are antiques! If you check out my new Online shop http://www.maryscottagetreasures.com/, you will see that I particularly love vintage linens and vintage collectibles.

Now, back to the apple orchard and the fun 'vintage things' inside:

As this is my very first blog, I am keeping it short as I still have a lot to learn. I hope you enjoyed my first blog and will put me on your regular list. Let me know and I will do the same! I have already discovered that trying to put pictures in a blog is not easy - they have a 'mind of their own,' it seems.

I am a proud member of 'Make Mine Pink', a group of amazing women who all are wonderfully creative and talented. Visit our boutiques at http://www.makeminepink.com/ and look for the special weekly events which make it the BEST internet shopping site for women!

Blessings to all,
