The Adventures of a Vintage Suitcase

DSC07277I took a drive yesterday,


DSC07277it was clear that the weather is changing.


DSC07277Pumpkins were in the market stands,

Pumpkins in Concord

and I then I noticed,


DSC07277the doors of some of the houses were beginning to boast fall wreaths.

Dear Flickr Friends

DSC07277Then I came home and realized,


DSC07277that I never did share all the photographs from just a few weeks ago,


DSC07277when I took a drive to Vermont.


DSC07277In Stowe, Vermont the gardens high on the mountain at the Von Trapp Lodge.


DSC07277Of course my little Adventure of the Vintage Suitcase,


DSC07277was not too far away.


DSC07277Yes, the next time I drive to Vermont, the leaves will be in vivid color,


DSC07277the pretty summer colors speckling the fields will be amber.


DSC07277I hope you enjoyed seeing the last bits of summer in Vermont.

I had forgotten how beautiful Vermont is Karen! I live right now in upstate New York, a hoot and a holler from Burlington and years ago my ex and I would drive all over Vermont on long weekends. One of my favorite spots was Smuggler's Notch, but at this time of year with the leaves getting ready to change, there is no spot in Vermont that won't take your breathe away!
Oh and I love the photo with the sparkle look to it....I need to learn how to do things like that....*sigh*
Have a bright and beautiful day!

I can see lots of pictures, but also lots aren't loading for me and I know that I am missing out. Yes, I loved seeing the last bit of summer flowers in Vermont. As you know, I love the Trapp Family Lodge (it doesn't sound quite the same since they dropped the "von"). Have a delightful day today...looks as if the weather has cleared for a corker of a late summer day.

What beautiful photos! Vermont is a gorgeous place isn't it? I would love to start in New England as the first fall colors show and slowing head my way south and end up back home....following the fall colors. Someday...

Summer pictures are lovely--I can't imagine how beautiful the fall photos will be. Hope the suitcase has many more adventures to come.

Oh Karen, thank you for the gorgeous suitcase photos. We will be in Vermont in October and I am so excited to finally get to see one of the most beautiful states in the Fall. xo Lynn

Beautiful pictures, Karen. I've always wanted to go to Vermont and I would say that fall is the best time!

That is a beautiful entry to Fall. I do love your vintage suitcase and wish I could find something like it to haul my craft things around.

I am on a journey. Greetings from Prague, where it is dreary today! My husband and I are having a great time. Do feel free to stop over at our blog if you would like to see the first day.

Vermont is special and I would love to see the Trapp Family Lodge some day!

I do love this so much. I want to be in that suitcase.

I NEED to learn your secrets to the stunning presentation of your photos. I am sorry, but I just have to know. Now that I am a regular contributor to La Belle Inspiration on-line magazine, I have to submit original photos but mine stink. theeheee! That is the truth. I gotta get on the stick and learn how to take better photos or else my writing will no longer be desirable for the just came out yesterday and it is stunning. My little photos are drowning in the midst of such LOVELY images from other writers...but nonetheless, I am in the magazine and I feel honored.

LOVELY as ever, Karen!

Oh I have always wanted to visit Vermont. Seems so odd to see the weather changing there. Down here in Texas we are still knee deep in summer. We have to pretend it is fall and decorate anyway. lol.

Beautiful post. I've only traveled to Vermont once, but it is definitely somewhere I want to return to and spend more time. Thanks for sharing all these lovely photos. ~ Sarah

Hi Karen,

I loved seeing your wonderful photographs of the Adventures of a Vintage suitcase and love all the colour and splendour about, on your trip.
The flowers are beautiful.

Enjoy the fall

Suz said...

I know I probably say this every time...but I believe these are the most beautiful photos you've taken! Wish I was traveling to Vermont this Fall! You have the most colorful trees! ♥

Such glorious colors in these photos of Vermont, Karen! The flowers and pumpkins are so beautiful.
I also look forward to seeing the fall folliage!
