Fall is all around me!

Fall has officially arrived in Michigan! I am anxiously waiting for the trees to be ablaze with color so I can take some photos. I have been really lax lately keeping up with my blog and photos so I thought I would throw a few at you today. Nothing spectacular, but I wanted to check in anyway. :)

Love my white pumpkins and bittersweet!!

I have done a little creating and made a few tags this week. Numbers 1-12. 

On my buffet...kinda messy, but it is what it is for now. I am working on it...slowly.

Don't you just love this tiny white pumpkin??  It only measures about 1 and 3/4 inches in diameter.


Found it in growing in my garbage pit. :)

I also LOVE my velvet pumpkin made by Becky over at Timewashed

A corner of my dining room with more bittersweet.

A lovely pumpkin patch right up the road from me. 

I love the crates...I wonder how much for one of those? lol 

This pumpkin patch is across from our house and is FILLED with pumpkins!

Happy Fall everyone!

Vintage Barn Market

I haven't shown you photos from my friend Marian's store called


for quite some time so here you go!

 I am amazed at the talent of my friend and I just love visiting her store, although I don't get there near as often as I would like to. I will let the pics speak for themselves...although I will say I just LOVE this bedroom setting above!!

Don't look too close or you will see "yours truly" in the mirror! Hate it when that happens. lol

Now, didn't the photos speak for themselves?!! You didn't need me blabbering on and on.

Marian has amazing decorating talent and it shows in everything she touches.

 If you ever get to Delta ,Ohio be sure to stop in and visit her gorgeous store. I am sure you won't be able to leave without purchasing an item or two.  Marian and her husband work hard at this and it is one amazing store!!

Fall...the most wonderful time of the year!

It really is on the way right?? I know the leaves are starting to fall here in Michigan although there is no real color on the trees yet. I do realize it is kinda early, but I am beginning to see pumpkins out for sale along the main road here.


Remember my bargain table? Fixed her up for fall and she loves it. :) 

Had to throw in a bit for Halloween. I have never been much of a Halloween decorator, but I have been beginning to feel the urge in the last couple years. Maybe it is the "witch" coming out in me. hee hee! 

I also wanted to share my clematis with you. I LOVE this climbing vine!!
Enjoy your week...we are off to watch our granddaughter Annika practice for soccer.

The big black box

I got up this morning and decided that I was tired of looking at the big black box on our bedroom dresser so I set about making a cover for it and this is the result.

{notice the dresser handle on the bottom I also started painting this dresser a few weeks ago and this is as far as I have gotten. ha! One of these days...}

It is just a piece of fabric that I added embellishments to and threw over the tv. No fancy seams or anything. Just a square piece of fabric. 

I sewed on a tulle ruffle and then added cheesecloth on top of that. Hand stamped ribbon on top of the cheesecloth. Very measuring. Just wanted to make something fun that wouldn't take long or tax my brain too much. :) 

This is how it looked before...ugh. 

I also added a vintage hanky and a fabric pin with ribbon tails. 

Lest you think I spent hours sewing this rickrack, lace and tucks in this, I did not. I purchased the fabric this way. It was on clearance so I purchased what they had left. {JoAnn Fabric} 

Hope you enjoyed your peek into my bedroom again today.
