Autumn. What a lovely time of year. The air temperature cools and the colors of nature become lit with the muted tones of old jewels. School begins and millions of mothers quietly Praise God for He in His Wisdom certainly inspired John Dewey to lobby for the idea of a Public School System which is […]

  • Ruchira Khanna - awesome clicks cheryl.
    Isn’t it amazing that man has made each season so colorful by introducing so many festivals.

    Your autumn clicks make me look fwd to this season.

    great post!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - This was NOT a ‘festival’ Ruchira- this is just a shop, like many others, open year round- very TYPICAL. That’s what makes it’s a magical place.ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Beautiful shots! Makes the city very inviting!ReplyCancel

  • bookworm - Never been to New Orleans. I just pinned two of these and am wondering when I will finally visit. My Dad, while I was growing up, always wanted to go for Mardi Gras, and one thing led to another, and he never went. I do owe his memory something!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Your Dad sounds like he was a man who liked a party and would have fit right in. When you visit don’t forget to give me a call (seriously) and THANKS for the pin!ReplyCancel

  • Francene Stanley - As a person living in England, I fail to grasp the joy those in your beautiful area find in skeletons. But the diversity in the world helps everyone to see points of view another way. Great pictures.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - I think they are enjoyed as a macabre image that can give a little scare but can’t hurt you- jingling all over the place, dancing like fools, often with a top hat on. Thanks for stopping by Francene- nice to see you again!ReplyCancel

  • Sophie Bowns - What fantastic photos! I love autumn too 🙂ReplyCancel

     Cleveland.     OK. Let’s get the puns out of the way:     “The Mistake on the Lake.”     ” River on Fire.”     “Only city that professional sports teams hit away from.”     Blahblahblah.     But did you know that it has the most trees per square foot than any other city in […]

  • Mari Collier - The only thing my husband liked about Ohio (when he was a boy) were the museums. It sounds like they have become even more impressive.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - I don’t know about museums in other cities in Ohio, but in Cleveland, they are amazing. This is only thetip of the iceberg- so to speak.ReplyCancel

  • Krisztina Williams - OMG you should have a “picture of mouth-watering pastries” warning on this post. I’ve sworn of bread. That pic is killing me!
    “Mistake on the Lake” lol, I’ve never heard that. That’s so funny.ReplyCancel

  • Ellen Dolgen - That salad looks so yummy! I would love to go there.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - It was one of the most delicious Tuna Nicoises’ I have ever had. When I got back to New Orleans a few days later it’s what I made for dinner. Very inspiring.ReplyCancel

  • The Desert Rocks - I agree with Krisztina, that photo is highly distracting! I’ve flipped back to it several times and the guys-eh- but the pastries rock!ReplyCancel

  • House Crazy Sarah - This is great Cheryl! Cleveland has had some bad press in recent months so it’s nice to see these colorful pics.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Yes they have. Poor Cleveland. So much good going on but always clouded by the crime, stupid city council decisions, and the weather. Too bad.ReplyCancel

  • keithdubarry.com - Those pastries look so good! Here in NJ, we have some good pastries, but these look and sound so much better!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - They were great! But NJ is known for it’s food- among other things. hahaha Thanks for stopping by!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle Liew - You’ve gotten me hungry, Cheryl!!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I want to taste Heaven and look at art while squatting in the green river. I seriously did not know all those facts about Cleveland! Very cool.ReplyCancel

  • Blake Cash - The Rock and Roll hall of fame and the house from “A Christmas Story”. Great reasons to visit ClevelandReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Oh yea. I forgot about that- the house. I just love that movie. It reminds me of when my grandfather would take me downtown to see Mr. Jingalings- in Cleveland- just like in the movie!ReplyCancel

  • Ruchira Khanna - never been to Cleveland so, it was a delight to read about it.

    thanks cherylReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - That atrium looks spectacular!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - It was one of the most spectacular enclosed public spaces I have ever been in. It really puts the individual human into perspective with the amazing art on the other side. And , of course, you can rent it out for parties, etc. Idea?ReplyCancel

      This is probably not the best way to start this post, but, don’t you just love the feel of something pliable in your hands?     I’m talking clay, or dough, or dirt, or maybe a bit of molten metal (smelting under a torch, chamfering the rough edges, forming the burning malleable mass into […]

       What is fabric?      Webster’s Dictionary defines it as (I’m not kidding); “woven stuff”.      Really? That’s it?      To me, fabric is soooo much more…     Its’ cloth (of course) used to create clothing, and cover furniture, and drape our windows.     We assemble sacks out of it, and sew parachutes […]
