Hello my friends!
*
Welcome to the 118th run of "Sunday Favorites"
*
I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend!  It's another beautiful weather weekend here in Colorful Colorado.  With high temps reaching into the 80's and lows down into the 50's...it really is perfect!  We have already seen some cool weather...autumn truly has made it's appearance in our little corner of Colorado.  The trees are just beginning to turn color.  With the mild, moderate temperatures we are experiencing this weekend...I am reminded of what we call an "Indian Summer"!  Summer like temperatures during the autumn!  I love it!!! 
*
  For the past few weeks, I have been revisiting a few of last year's autumn posts for the Sunday Favorites party. Today, I am sharing another one of my "favorite" posts from autumn 2010 called "Autumn Pears...One of My Favorite Things".  I hope that you enjoy! 
*
 I am also joining The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday party today.  You will find more info. about this lovely party at the end of today's post. 
*
My dearest friend Gloria...
*
  Before signing off for the Sunday Favorites party today, I would like to ask for special prayers for a very, dear friend of mine.  Gloria, from Happy To Be blog, is in the hosptial.  After going in for a very routine procedure last Wednesday, she had massive coronary failure.  They rushed her in for emergency heart surgery and did a triple by-pass.  Gloria is doing better but I am still so worried about her.  Please pray for her!  Gloria's daughter, Dawna, has been posting updates on her mother's blog if you would like to go over and leave her your well wishes.  Thank you, my friends...I sooo appreciate your prayers...Gloria is so dear to me!!!
*
 Well my friends...I'm looking forward to seeing your Sunday Favorites posts this week and visiting with you!  You can sign up for the party at the end of this post!
*
Have a super Sunday!

"Autumn Pears...One of My Favorites Things"
*
*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
Today I am joining in with "A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday" party over at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie Blog...hosted by the very sweet Ms. Laurie herself! You will find the credits for this lovely party at the end of my post.

Poires d'automne...Autumn Pears
*
Yes...autumn pears is one of my favorite things! For those of you who know me...you have probably suspected that this is so...for sometime now! Hehe! I'm not exactly sure what it is about a pear that I LOVE. I do love the taste of a pear...but I must admit that I also love the shape of a pear...and the many colors of a pear! Pears are just pretty to me!
*
*
*
*
*
My autumn table centerpiece has pears....
*
Yes...I DO love pears! Soooo...when I was doing a little "window shopping" on Ebay...I ran across the prettiest pear plates that I've ever seen...it was love at first sight!!!
*
*
My newest treasure find..."Golden Pears" salad/dessert plates.
*
The manufacturer's mark on the back of the plate says...
*
Crate & Barrel
Golden Pears
by Julia Bullmore 1998
Japanese Porcelain Decorated in the USA
*
I have not been able to find out much about this pretty pattern. I'm just sooo happy that I found them on Ebay and made them MINE! Each plate...of the set of four...has a different type of pear on it.
Ahhh...poires d'automne!!!
*
*
Plate #1....a red pear!
*
*
*
*
*
Plate #2...an autumn pear.
*
*
*
*
*
Plate #3...a golden yellow pear.
*
*
*
*
*
Plate #4...a green pear.
*
*
*
*
*
Gilded leaves...
*
I was having a difficult time photographing the pear plates, however the photo above shows the beautiful features of the plates a little better! As you can see...the gold is gilded...it is sooo pretty when the light shines on it! I just love the shade of green that is used on the rim of the plates as well!
*
*
 Ahhhh...autumn pears!!!
*
I have pears everywhere...
*
*
I have pears on my dining room buffet!
*
*
*
*
*
I have pears on the wall! If you look to the left side of the photo...you will be able to see a framed print of a pear. The print is one of my favorites...it is a french country pear!!!
*
*
Another dining room buffet vignette with pears.
*
*
An autumn table set beside the fireplace in our living room. A metal clock is filled with pears...for just a little extra interest! A couple of autumn pears nestled in the autumn foliage was added to the base of the clock.
*
*
Yes...I love, love, LOVE PEARS! They really are one of my favorite things!

***Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria***
*
When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!
*
I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST!
*
Thank you!!!

I didn't know about Gloria! I am so upset -- Thank you for letting us know. She is just the dearest woman; I will be praying double time for her.

How frightening.

Thanks, as always, Chari, for hosting -- and for sharing some of your beautiful things. LOVE the pear plates, and all the pears. I have a photo of three pears against some old wood that I look at often-- just wish I had the talent to PAINT it!

Thanks again... and I will keep Gloria and her family in my heart.
Love, Cass
