Happy Thanksgiving from our House to Yours

I love the colors of fall and how the season encourages us to reflect on our blessings.  So today I want to thank you for taking the time to read my blog.  I hope my sharing of ideas,  both decorating, creating and recipes are a blessing and encouragement to you and your family and friends. Every time I get a comment or a new follower I am encouraged to keep sharing….and when someone tells me they tried a recipe or project and liked it I am over the moon.   Thank you!

Today I thought I would share a few glimpses of my fall décor before I dive into decorating for Christmas.

These two decorate my patio and front door.  The hose lady is a Shara Reiner design and the scarecrow is by Maxine Thomas.

This is a view of my mantle in my living room, and yes the sculpture on the right is by my friend and artist extraordinaire Wendy Young.  The pumpkins in the fireplace are from my DIY  this year – Paper Mache Pumpkins

In this vignette you will see my design “Sitting Pretty” The white pumpkin is sitting in a DIY from last year – Festive Fall Pedestal – DIY

The pumpkin on the spring I created in a class with Wendy Young.

My living room and dining room is one large room.  This is the center of the dining table.

The mantle on the fireplace in my family is about nine feet wide.  These are pictures of each end of the mantle.  The pumpkins are from my DIY post this year – Paper Mache Pumpkins and the owl painting is from a post last year – Fall Owl Painting – DIY

My family room and kitchen are also connected.  In my kitchen window is  design I did a couple of years ago – “Fall Fruit Tree“.
