The Fall Decorating Continues!

 Hello Dear Friend!
 I am sorry that I have been gone for too long. I was so happy to see that many of you enjoyed the sweater pumpkins and I really wanted to share with you the spot where I first ran across the "how-to's" and after much searching I finally found it. Hummadeedledee was the place. I do want to give credit to her because I love the sweater pumpkins too!
 I have been working on a few more decorations in my home and outside too so here we go!
This little pumpkin guy turned out pretty cute, I even make one for my Mom...so easy!
This one is in the bathroom!
I finally framed Tom Turkey from Not Forgotten Farms...I just love him and I wide frame seems to make him even better.

 I wanted a new wreath for the front door but I could not bear the idea of paying such a high price for it so I bought a fall garland and cut it apart and wired it to a grapevine wreath I already had!
I had enough stuff left over to make a wreath for the back door too!
And finally, for today, I added a few more bowl fillers on the back porch...and then I changed out the tablerunner but forgot to get a picture. Hope you enjoyed this little snapshot into what I have been doing. Come back tomorrow  for the rest of the pictures!

Everything looks so festive. Love how you made the wreaths. Look great. Are those tallowberries in the first pumpkin? I have seen them mentioned but I'm not sure what they are.
I'm having a giveaway and would love it if you came over and signed up!

Hi Dianntha! Your decorations look great and the sweater pumpkins--what a great idea! I'm a thrift store junkie, so I just might have to try that one. You left a comment for me, asking about the quilt I used on a table for a class I taught yesterday--the pattern is one I designed myself, and I thought I might have done a tutorial on it, but apparently I didn't--sorry! You also asked if I work with wool, and I do--it's one of the reasons I hang out at thrift stores. There's a fun wool tutorial you can get to through my sidebar, but I see you also work with wool, so I don't know that it would be anything new to you. Thanks!

Love your little pumpkin flower holder on the door. Sometimes it's the simple ideas that just do the trick.

It is so hard to think 'autumn' when it's 110* outside! No kidding. We had a lovely summer; guess summer's catchin' up with us here in CA!

What fun decorations! I know what you mean about the cost of fall wreaths- sheesh! I think I might copy your idea and do my own. :)
