A Table for an Autumn Dinner

Hello family & Friends,

     To continue with my fall & Halloween decorating on the sun porch, I decorated the table with colorful items for a lunch or dinner.  The chandelier above the table gives a warm cozy glow to any meal.

Such a lovely outdoor view and great for sitting to listen to the rain beat down on our tin roof.  Vintage chandelier above was a thrifty find that I'm so proud of,  from a local flea market $60.
Vintage chandelier with brass and glass dome and four glass globes with pink champagne border, you can see the border better on bottom left of picture.
Faux autumn apple garland covers top view of brass part of dome.

Chef Betty Shares

     Dear Bloggers,

          My name is Betty Ayers and I'm the chef in our Ayers home.  Just like millions of other people I have Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.  Sometimes it's horrible, especially when it rains and they both act up at the same time, you   think you're going to die.  Then sometimes (not often) it'd not so bad, but one thing's for sure, it's something I have to deal with every day.  At 72 years old, I'm not ready to let go of my dreams so I fight this battle with every step I take, but I won't let it win.  I'll share some recipes and foods here, which is sound information for anyone, not just those with RA and Fibro.
