A Little More Fall

This is probably my favorite place to decorate for holidays. If I could only decorate one place in the house, this would be it.

I just stick holiday stuff inside around the everyday stuff

The top one says 'the witch is in'

October stamp 

Love these little jars - looks like I need to move that middle one over a bit. Funny the things you notice in pictures that you don't notice IRL.

All of the stitched pieces are previous finishes. I didn't get anything new stitched for this year. 

That's my sweetie - 55 years ago!

My great-grandmother made the afghan - I'm guessing in the seventies? I've had it for a few years but it's just been in a closet. Thought fall would be a good time to pull it out to use.

My poor pick-up truck looks like he needs some air in his tires!

That's all folks!

On the porch and in the kitchen

Not much changed on the porch this year

bought one real pumpkin for the flower bed

On the side porch

Same old stuff in the kitchen

I did buy the plate in the window - it was just too cute to pass up! 
Too cute for pie stays out all year. 

Little touch of fall in my metal tray.

Pics from the living room to come later!

This 'n That

I've got critters in my flower bed. Dang it. 

The quilting bee I sew with did a round robin - this is mine. I made the center square (from a Thimble Blossoms pattern) then it was traded off and I didn't see it again until I got it back last week. I'm debating if I need to add another border or if the binding will be enough. I have no idea where I will hang it - there isn't a wall space in my sewing room that is big enough. Right now I've got it taped to the top of a bookshelf so I can think about it.

I have been doing some stitching. I got this far on this one (Harvest Chalk Full by Hands on Design) before I had to set it aside and start on some Christmas gifts. I won't have anything else to show until I finish those and can stitch for me again.

I've put my fall stuff out but I have a little clutter I need to take care of before I take those pics. I don't usually do fall in the bathrooms but I finally got shelves up over the bath tub in the master bathroom and I still don't know exactly what I want to put on them but I stuck a couple of pumpkins and a small flower/pumpkin arrangement up there for now.

We had a couple of nice fall-like mornings but it's hot again this morning. Supposed to get up to 90 today then cool off again tomorrow. It was a more pleasant walk the last two mornings when it was in the 50s instead of 70s. It's already 75 this morning so I'm heading out before it gets any warmer.

Hope you have a great day!
