Pumpkins and More Pumpkins

I've recently noticed all the pumpkins fellow bloggers are making. I guess it's time to get some fall decorating going. I particularly liked a few of these pumpkins.

Last fall, Lynne and I made some pumpkins from recycled felted sweaters. They turned out pretty darn cute.

I saw this mantle in Better Homes and Gardens.

I particularly like the glass candlestick holders. Looks to me like recycled glass. I have many pieces remaining from our garden totem adventure this past spring. I think I may make a few...add some bittersweet vine and a candle and I'm good to go.

Have you started any fall decorating yet?

Temperature is dropping a bit today...looks like rain too. Perfect day for meatloaf and scalloped the oven right now!


  1. I like the pheasant feathers . . . You are right, we need together busy with the decorations . . .

  2. Maybe I rushed it by getting down the box of autumn decorations. The weather report predicted rain. I’m finished with the porch and sunroom. The only thing I lack is a bench I saw on Pinterest with pumpkins and an old blanket I’ll have to get at the mission. Truthfully I saw three benches and I want to combine all three looks on one bench for an entry piece by the pathway leading up to the cottage. Meatloaf sounds good. Hot weather menu’s are getting tiresome. It’s time for comfort food regardless of the thermometer readings still in the eighties.
