Fall Decorating

Good Morning,

Well I finally had a day off work on Saturday, so I decided it was time to get out my fall/Halloween decorations. I was tired from helping my son work on his Eagle Scout project for Boy Scouts (I'm getting too old to be shoveling and raking out decorative stone for hours.) It was a nice day and he's running out of nice weather to completed his landscaping project, so we decided to do all the stone work in one day. Enough about that, I'll have pictures and explain in another post. On to the goodies!! Top pictures is a cabinet I have in my dining room. I'm thinking of painting the little spice cabinet black, but haven't gotten to it yet.

This bench is also in my dining room. Most of the items are here year round. I just added the witch and the little stitchery quilt to the display.

A wonderful fall pocket I made a couple of years ago.

Must like this pocket so much that I put it on twice. OOPS!! Not savvy enough to figure out how to delete this pic without having to redo the whole post.

Wonderful witch cat and cat penny mat.

Little shelf that used to be in my parents' cabin before I decided it would look better in my home. Witch kitty sits on top. Hooked pumpkin purse, black cat, and a couple of wool pumpkins round out the display.

Love old wooden boxes. I've topped a couple with a little black butter bowl filled with putka pods and a prim candle and a framed punch needle pumpkin.

Wonderful pumpkin hooked rug that I purchased from a friend.

Skeleton doll holding his pet crow.

Hooked pumpkin girl and her black cat boyfriend. I made these dolls about 5 years ago and still love them.

Pumpkin pocket with candy corn that I purchased 2 years ago from a talented ebay artist.

This display sits on a tall thin cabinet right inside my back door. I made the penny rug and the picture. The other items were purchased from craft shows.

Hope you enjoyed the pics. It's been raining here for the last two days (we needed it) so I haven't done any outdoor displays. Will post these another time. Becky



Love viewing all your neat craft items. You are so talented.
