Company is coming
 and we are all awaiting 
with grand expectations.

The guest room 
has been
 pruned and prettied...

...with a wicker tray
 holding a 
pot of rose hip tea, 
favorite books 
and appropriate show tunes...
all in place 
to make welcome 
the weary traveler.

A few close friends
 have peeked in
 to pay their respects...

...the pillows
 have been plumped...

...and the 
candles lit.

A meal has been prepared, 
fit for a guest of such high esteem, 
and served among all 
the favored amenities.

...and fresh flowers abound
 in every room 
of the Cottage.

The flight was on time 
and I hear
 our guest approaching...

Allow me 
to perform 
the introductions...

To be continued...

  14. Have just recently gotten back to your blog. Happy Autumn. Love all of your decorations and poems. I've sent a lot of my decor to a consignment shop.......planning on going in a different direction from now on. Something like you do.....using everyday pretties with special holiday items. Love it all.
