Harvest Time...still creating pumpkins

Seems that I have been so busy the past few weeks and harvest time is just flying by.
They haven't actually started harvesting the corn that surrounds our home, but they
will start soon. 

I created another pumpkin that just landed in my Etsy store . I put this one on a vintage
spring along with a vintage doily and a harvest tag embellished with vintage lace
that yours truly made.

{click on Etsy if you are interested}

I thought it turned out very cute if I don't say so myself. :)

Tag is embellished with vintage lace and the word HARVEST.

Enjoy the fall and harvest time wherever you live! I know I will!!

I am so anxious to see our two granddaughters again that we haven't seen since Fathers Day!
{along with my son and his wife}
They are coming in from North Dakota this week and there will be plenty of hugs and
 kisses to go around...counting the days!!

Autumn has arrived!


I am thinking this may be bittersweet OVERKILL...

so I may remove what is on the mirror and put it somewhere else.

I had it there a few days before I added the basket full and now it is like...

 WOW! ha!

Just a little decor on my front porch and back deck.

I love color outside my home in the fall, but still pretty much stick to neutrals inside.

A favorite arrangement on my back porch. I leave you with this thought:

Life fails to be perfect, but never fails to be beautiful!!

HAPPY AUTUMN to all my blogging friends!!

Hug a loved one today!!

Creating Pumpkins!

I wanted to pop in and say hello to everyone. I have been making pumpkins lately and having so much
fun doing it. I have intended to make these for years, but kept putting it off. Well, I had enough of
that! ha! My dining room overfloweth with cute fabric pumpkins of all sizes with REAL dried
pumpkin stems. Some of these will head off to a friends booth and a few will be listed online.
{If you happen to see any that you just can't live without give me a hollar}

{I do have one set listed in my Etsy store, but that is as far as I have gotten. Click here
for the pumpkins or here for my whole shop}

I made a few out of old soft, natural batting and love them!

Love this fabric also. It just says FALL to me.

I saved up a bunch of pumpkin stems from last year and WHO KNEW they are so expensive to buy?
I saw them going for $1.00 each on ebay. One auction of 30 went for $36! Wowza! I think I need to
go into the pumpkin business! 

My dining room hutch...don't look at all the other stuff...just a quick shot.

I hope everyone is doing well. It was a whirlwind of a Labor Day weekend for us as we spent most
of it at our daughters home with her family. We arrived Friday afternoon and came back home on
Monday.  The whole weekend was busy, busy , busy , but it was a fun busy.  I was so exhausted
when I got home. lol. We have to grab and hold onto these moments whenever we can and cherish
 them!  Life is way too short at the longest.  The older I get , I am realizing that more and more.

Are you ready for fall? Making pumpkins?? I am SO READY for it, but not the winter that follows.
