Fall tour and collectibles revisited

I was planning on posting some recent fall photos, but our fall hasn't been as colorful as years past. Also, strong winds came up and blew off what remaining leaves there were, so I decided to share some previous posts of fall. We had gorgeous colors last year and I shared these pics taken last year of the trees surrounding the historic RA Long high school in Longview, WA. You can visit my Fall walking tour post here.


The beautiful clock tower.


We had some of the most beautiful fall colors I've ever seen in the Pacific NW last year. 


I love this row of trees and all the fallen leaves.



I wanted to share this maple tree again and its massive twisted trunk. 


The lake isn't as pretty this time of year, due to water run off, but the trees that surround it are beautiful with their fall colors. 



These pics were taken in early fall of the entrance to the Japanese garden. 


The lovely bridge that crosses the lake into the garden. 



I also wanted to share some pics of my favorite fall collectibles at the General Store in Troutdale, OR. You can see the whole tour here. We visited in September, so they only had a few Thanksgiving displays out.  Cute little figurines and pretty platter. 




I should have bought a few things off this table, big mistake. I loved all the leaf dishes, birds and that adorable garden elf. I just didn't have a place to put them at the time so I passed them by. These pics are from our 2012 visit, but if I see fall collectibles that I love as much as these again I'll go ahead and buy them, lesson learned. 


The owls were really cute and I loved the little produce girl too. 


I wanted to include these pumpkin and squash heads again. Love their comical faces. 


There's something so cute and whimsical about frogs, no matter the season. 


Just some random pics of fall around the house. I wanted to share a simple  little fall plate in my antique chest. I shared most of my fall decor in a previous post. 


I like to show calendar pics once in awhile as long as the pictures are as pretty as this fall one. 



This photo taken in Jackson County, OR really sums up the beauty of fall to me. Thanks for stopping by.
