Where did summer go?

The light has changed so much. I looked at the sunlight coming into my bedroom today and realized how the direction of the sun has changed now that fall is here. Then I went to Union Square Farmer's Market and everything seemed to whisper "summer is gone...". That is OK. I bought some fresh and delicious Honey Crisp apples and they seemed perfectly content to be extraordinary symbols of the new season here on my kitchen table. And a nice pics from apple picking two weeks ago when I was in Wisconsin.

And I want to introduce some of my new friends. Two interesting ceramic birds (one a chicken I think the other a very sleek looking owl) and a hippo.

Today's Lesson, Children: Orange

In Chicago for the weekend visiting The Stylist. Went to a store called Den on Central Street in Evanston. For sure the owner, Daran Puffer, must like orange. He had some very beautiful orange (tangerine?) and reddish objects. Two great orange suede covered Milo Baughman chrome chairs and lamps, lamps, lamps. Turns out that Daran is an ace at renovating lamps and chandeliers and sconces. We ended up talking to him for a while and we took a look at his workshop with the trophy marlin over his bench and the figurine lamp that looks like she is trying on lampshades as dresses...
