The style at Cedar Hill Ranch is what I like to call “Texas Living with a French Accent.” Most people who come to visit in person or on the blog, like to hang out on the back porch, so I have included a few photos so you can visit too.
This photo shows the rockers and the antique truck on the back porch, to see more, click here.
Here is our dining room.

Now that I have introduced myself, and you’ve had a chance to settle in, let’s talk “Fall.”
If you are in Texas, then you will be quite aware that Fall has not arrived yet. Things are cooler, and by cooler I mean less than 100 degrees, so it still doesn’t exactly feel like Fall here. But in my own little Bloggy reality, it is Fall. Sure it requires turning down the thermostat a little (okay a lot!) but hey, for you, it is worth it. Here’s my take on Fall.
I found some wonderful apples and pears this week. If you want to imagine I picked them from my own trees, I won’t mention where I got them. We did plant some peach and apple trees at Cedar Hill, but we’re not ready for a crop yet.
I placed the Bosc pears in an antique family dough bowl.
The apples here are shown in a vintage family wicker basket.
Here, I placed the apples in an Aidan Gray wire tureen.
I love this asparagus dish. I have two dishes that look like a bowl of asparagus, but this one is my favorite.
I have lots of pitchers, creamers, salt and pepper shakers that look like eggplants, carrots, asparagus, beets and so forth. I just set out a few here.
The salt and pepper shakers were placed on an old vintage book. I chose a red book to add to the Fall feel.
I certainly enjoyed our little visit. Please stop by any time at the ranch; I’ve got a rocker here with your name on it.
