My blogging friend, Kristine, recently posted pictures of her house, and all the autumn decorating that she's been up to. It looks awesome.
Today, Ondrea was also inspired by Kristine to decorate for the season and posted some of her pictures, too.
So, I am following suit. Here it is, my autumn decor:
Isn't this little guy cute? He's hanging on our basement door - the only useable one right now. If you look close enough, you'll see that his rake's broken. Has been for years. I just pick it up off the stoop every year and pack it back away with him again. Maybe one year I'll get around to fixing it for him.
Oh, don't bother scrolling any further.
There's no more.
The outskirts of St. Pete
Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
