August kitchen window


My August kitchen window is very simple.  


This great old Kay Cloud pear is the center of attention... 


...joined by a few of Mother Earth's offerings.


You may have noticed my colonial fellow by Anne Childs seldom leaves his post. I really enjoy this little guy and miss him if I put something else in his spot. I have a couple of Anne's wonderful paintings that I purchased from Anne when she and her husband John were doing a show here in Florida. 

Anne allowed me to take pics of her wonderful booth...someday I'll have to share them here. If you are ever close to a show where Anne and John are selling...go! You won't regret it....but you might have a hard time deciding which treasure to take home.


Enjoy the day,
Robyn

  6. Hi Robyn,
    I love pears so much and have several favorites that I have made that always stay out!! Love yours with the real pears!! Your window looks beautiful as always and I am hoping that perhaps I will actually change mine for August, since I totally missed July!!! I love your colonial fellow too and he is a good soldier who stays at his post!!
    Have a great week!
    Heart Hugs~~

  7. Funny....I have been so wayward in my visits for so long now....but just the other day I looked out the weary "sameness" of my kitchen window and thought of you...and missed you.... I vowed to come visit...and when I finally made it here, what do I find, but a window post.... LOVE it.... Your Anne Childs' piece is amazing. I would love one...some day. Sounds like (in my brief catch-up) that your life has been busy and fulfilling as usual. Love your witchy poo's....and that book of Pennsylvania history with your family tidbits...what a treasure!!! Say "hey" for me to Sweet Annie....and glad the old barristers won the challenge....Perry Mason rocks. Smiles & August Hugs ~ Robin

  16. Lovely golden Pears.
    I can fruit, and I always have a fondness for Pears. (Spiced Pears)
    They are the last jewels of summer, here for only a couple weeks.
    A warm and inviing window scape. ;)
