Fall Vintage



I did some vintage antique shopping this past week in the
 Chapman Antique Mall at the Circle in Orange, California. 
I found  many things that I liked. 

I particularly liked the brown jug in this shot.

Some Halloween things were already on display.

I found at least one chandelier. And this is what the rest of the day was like......


Driving home from the antique mart on a clear summer day. No smog on this day.

Mr. COS had just watered my roses and I captured these shots of blooms 
on my 'Leonidas' rose plant. Perfect rose to represent fall.


I didn't enhance the roses in these photos. I never do.
I want you to see them vibrant and colorful as I see them.
 The perfect rose for someone who loves orange as much as I do.

How I love your tours of Orange.....now is this in OLD ORANGE? I used to go there with friends when I was just out of high school. Then when I moved to Boston, I often dreamed of Old Orange, then when I moved here....that's been 28 years now, and about 4 years ago, I had the pleasure and honor of meeting up with a DEAR blog friend in Old Orange while visiting family in L.A. We went to all the places that I had been dreaming for 28 years and it was lovely.

If you go to Old Orange Susan, TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES of the beautiful circle with the fountain, the antique shops, everything. I'LL BE THERE! Anita

I really enjoy changing my décor according to the seasons. One interesting find a year keeps me from having a storage problem. Vintage Fall is my favourite because of the rich, warm colours.

Thinking of the fall, huh. I still hang onto summer. Luckily it's lasting here.

Hanging out at antique malls is one of my favorite things to do. And I adore the orange rose! I'm happy that fall is within sight!
