FALL Scenes from the City

It's that beautiful time of the year, from the changing colors of the leaves to Halloween display from city to country! I thought I 'd share some random pictures that I took in the past month. This is a picture from my backyard.
I made a little day trip on our Thanksgiving weekend to Toronto where my DD Stephanie is attending university. First we stopped by IKEA. Here's David with the humongous lamp shades.
then there's me staring at the gorgeous lamp shade. Some snaps shots of the city....you see the world-famous CN Tower.
then another well-known landmark--Toronto City Hall
these are some really cool Halloween/fall window display in the down shopping /financial district
Love everything about these items...
Love how the store display the invitations
What a COOL dinning table!

My lovelies...Stephanie was excited to get her new glasses!
Don't you just love the sight of CHOCOLATES?
Enjoy the fall days...winter will be here before we know it!

Oh my! These photos are gorgeous, Virginia! I live in Florida right now, but I grew up in Boston, MA. So your first few pictures of the Autumn leaves and trees made me miss my hometown where I was able to experience all four seasons. (Sigh)
Your pics are so pretty!! They made me smile. :)
