Autumn Colours

The autumn colours are in full bloom in my little corner of the world.

This beautiful tree was close to my work.

My mom found this tablecloth; its pretty colours scream fall!

This cute pumpkin teapot was a gift from a friend.

The teapot and sugar were a gift from my boss.

The yellow teapot with matching creamer and sugar used to belong to my friend's mom. I was touched when she gave it to me after her mom passed away.

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some of the local fire services are raising cancer awareness with their pink trucks, or selling pink tees or socks to raise funds for cancer research. The Burlington Fire Department (BFD) is supporting the firefighters, admiring the survivors, honouring the taken. The BFD concluded its Pink Campaign on Oct 26th by inviting cancer survivors to sign the truck in memory or support.


  1. You have some lovely tea pieces gifted to you, Margie, and your tablecloth is perfect for Fall. I love the idea of the fire department having breast cancer survivors sign their truck. Enjoy this last week of October!

  2. That tree is magnificent!I also love the gorgeous cloth and beautiful sets!Hugs!

  3. That is a very pretty tablecloth your mom found. Happy October Tea times!

  4. The design of the mouth cover is reasonable, and the tea is easy to enter and exit: the bird dragon tea that the Chinese people love to drink is in a dry and tight state before brewing. It is not too difficult to put it into the pot by tea, but after the hot water is brewed, the number is patrolledAuthentic Purple Clay Teapot. The leaves expand and expand one by one, and the whole body will be stuffed tightly (especially when the amount of tea is too much). If the mouth is too sma

  5. Love your tea pieces Margie. CUTE tablecloth there too. I just adore the fire dept. doing that Margie for breast care awareness! I've had two aspirations and several biopsies. My mom is breast cancer survivor. It really is so very important. Happy Day to you dear lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. Hi Margie! What pretty tea wares this week! Love the pumpkin teapot setting with the teacups under the cloche; such a lovely setting with your autumnal table cloth! The pink fire truck is a wonderful sight and it does my heart good to know the fire departments are doing their best to raise money for Breast Cancer research. The Island has breast cancer runs, among other things, every year and there are always droves of people participating. Have a great week!

  7. That tree is absolutely gorgeous!
    Some of those bright trees can be binding at times they are so vividly bright.

    Such a beautiful table cloth for this time of year and goes so well with your tea sets.
    Such a blessing to receive your friends mothers tea set, very special in deed.

    I love the pink fire truck! Such a worthy cause and a great idea having survivors sign the truck.

    Have a terrific day surrounded in all your glorious colors~

  8. What beautiful colours you have around you!

    Enjoy your fall day!

  9. How beautiful! LOL - all of OUR fall colors are now under a blanket of wet, heavy snow! I don't remember having this much snow THIS early! That teapot set with cream and sugar that your friend gifted you caught my eye right away - what a lovely gift! I love the teacups under the cloche - such a beautiful display!
