I love Fall!

There is something about crisp autumn air in my lungs, bright colored leaves on the ground, and warm glowy sunlight slanting through the trees that makes me love Fall.

It all started years ago when as a college student I went for a run down a mountain trail on a day just like this. I won't ever forget the feeling of change in the air.

Call me a gypsy, but I LOVE change. I love new things, I love the planning, preparing, and thinking through each little detail.  You could say I'm a builder
--not necessarily a maintainer--
that would be all of you spring chickens who get excited over spring cleaning. ;P 

New adventures and experiences, soaking in each moment and taking away the best parts . . . There's just something about a sunny, crisp fall day that energizes my spirit.

So it's not hard to figure out why this is my latest favorite spot for furniture photo shoots.  Even if it is a little impractical to put a piece of indoor furniture outside in the middle of a pile of leaves under a sap dripping, bird pooping tree--it's like the shoes on models wear walking down the runway--
it's all for looks, not for real life.
Love this ornate little hall table & mirror.

Just my style--matchy-miss matched!
The table was painted in ASCP Coco and dark waxed.

The mirror was painted in Provence, then Coco,
 then dark waxed.
Oh, and she was gold to start with!
Talk about a gypsy.  

 Both were distressed pretty well.
