Potpourri Party #42

Hi everyone!  Wow! September is flying by!
We have a ton of highlights today, so settle back with a 
cup of tea or coffee, or maybe a glass of wine!
There is so much to enjoy!  A note to those who link early, if you don't stop back by to see some of the later links, you are really missing out!  Also, we have a lot of new people linking to Potpourri Friday!  I know you will want to make them welcome.

I did a little more Fall decorating this week. My mantel is done, but I imagine it will be tweeked a bit in the next few days!

I didn't actually pimp any pumpkins, but some of my pictures insisted on playing along.

Sarah's friend found her an adorable painted silver teapot which now resides at Hyacinths for the Soul!

Penny took a soft approach in the Fall decorating of her buffet
