"BY INVITATION ONLY" - Oktober 2017


As announced yesterday the event of  "BY INVITATION ONLY" is back!

Originally initiated 5 years ago by Marsha from SPLENDEROSA
now as a "reprise" by D.A.Wolf 

Our first subject for this month, for October:
Welcoming the Autumn Season - Custom Party - Halloween
*
*
*
I welcome here the Autumn Season 
with my
"PUMPKIN - PARADE..."

...fell in love with them - as every year.

Perfect for decorate the house with all kind of still lifes...
bringing some color into daily life..
  
*
 
So, I went lasr Friday to our weekly market in nearby Riberac to see what I can find,
knowing that there is a - rather small stand - but with very special home grown vegetables. 
Remembered from last year that
if I like to have some special pumkins - I'll find them there....

And YES -


they had the most beautiful and interesting pumpkins.  



...and I went mad....

 How can one resist....?


*
 
 Back home ....



I simply love them!

   
"A CHAOS IN ORDER....?"

 

 Or simply nature's own ART

 
... like old fossils...

Any questions ???

? ? ?

 Each one with its own personality....

...makes them so perfect for any kind of still lifes....


ideal for the table decoration when arranged on old white stoneware...


...for example.

 ...Standing up proudly...

 ...waiting for the next party....


....a Custom Party in my Fantasy...

Ladies and Gentlemen to be dressed in the 15th/16th century style
using autumn colors or at least a suggestion of red. 
Colors to be suitable to my Pumpkin-Parade ;-) !



And me ?
Just to give a suggestion of Halloween...
..what's wrong with that....
"waring my faith but as the fashion of my hat"
...to paraphrase William Shakespeare

*
*
*
 *

 The diner:  probably pumpkin soup....

.....cheese and bread....


....and certainly a lot of wine....


...only the best - St. Emilion Grand Cru...what else!
