What a treat!

A trip to Martha's Bloomers.

Featured in Southern Living magazine's list
of "Top 50 Shops" and list of "Top 10 Tea Rooms in Texas".
And home to the world's largest teapot!

Lovely blossoms

and blooms

everywhere you look.

And a cozy tea room

to enjoy lunch.
(I had the quiche and roasted red pepper soup!)

A pot of Martha's Bloomers famous
orange spice tea,

and lovely desserts

complete the visit. :-)

It's the first day of fall!

No matter how busy the day,
there are a few simple things that are
first day of fall traditions for me. :-)

using autumn paper plates at breakfast

drinking hazlenut coffee

eating honey crisp apples for snack

listening to my favorite
"autumn soundtrack"

making the house smell like
apples and cinnamon

and putting out a few more fall decorations

like this beautiful leaves and acorns plate
that my sister made for me last year
What do you like to do to celebrate the first day of fall?? :-)
