A Little Bit of Fall

Hello, Friends.

We are enjoying some lovely cool temps and it has put me in the mood for a wee bit of fall decorating. Since we are going to be in Florida much of this month, it didn’t seem like I should do too much.


I mentioned earlier this week that Mom and I went to a craft show.

This handmade pumpkin stack came home with me. I think it is a nice addition to the front entry. The rafia on top should be replaced by a bow...maybe for next year.

Pay no mind to the poor peace lily. Believe it or not, the thing is on the mend.

There are a few fall pieces here and there on the inside, but the Hoosier cabinet has gotten most of the attention.

It is so much fun to change the decor on the cabin to match the seasons.

The cross stitch piece on top is "Be Thankful" by Country Cottage Needleworks. I don't think I've shared it before. It was stitched on 10 count Aida in the color Burlap.

Various decor items from Michaels and some I've had a while.

Of course, you will always see an item or two from Hobby Lobby

More vintage Pyrex. I have quite a few pieces that came from my husband's family and my grandmother so I'll be swapping those out seasonally...I think.

I've shared about the battery operated candles.  They are hand dipped in real wax and look so nice with the lights turned off.

And I have to show a couple recent photos of our wildlife.

We still get frequent visits from these guys.


I wonder how close to November they hang around?


Thank you for visiting our little place on the ridge and enjoy your day!

What a beautiful wooden pumpkin stack to greet visitors at the doorway, Jeanna. I just knew your Hoosier would be decked out for the fall season. It is so nice to hear that you are still enjoying it. Your Be Ye Thankful looks amazing- I adore your finish. Your vintage Pyrex bowl brought back such fond memories. I have the same one from my grandmother's ; now I am going to pull mine out.- Lol. Have a great weekend. Hugs P. S - What a treat to see the turkeys;keep us updated on how long they stay.

I do like the simplicity of your pumpkin stack and your cabinet does look great.
Not a lot of autumn decorating goes on here although there are more and more things around for Halloween these days and some pumpkins feature. My decorating is limited to a small autumn wall hanging which will soon be replaced by my giant poppy for Remembrance. xx

Your front entry display is so pretty. All I have is a faded sunflower Welcome flag out front - I think I need to get with the fall program! Your Hoosier cabinet decorations look so pretty! Be Thankful is a nice sized piece, and I love your vintage Pyrex and candles - everything looks so nice. That'll be nice to come home to, right? Your visiting turkeys are wonderful, I still want to move back where we can see wildlife! Enjoy your stay in Florida. :)

I love your pumpkin stack for the front porch, Jeanna! And Be Thankful is beautiful with its white pumpkins. I have Pyrex dishes that were wedding gifts that I now think are considered vintage, lol! Great photos of the turkeys, too! Is hubby's knee procedure coming up this week? Sending you good thoughts!
