I finally got around to taking down the Halloween decorations this weekend. Not that I had many out, but they still needed to be packed away. I did a tiny bit of fall decorating as well. I’m not really in the mood to go all out, but a few little touches were what I wanted.
I had forgotton this pillow that I stitched several years ago, and while it works for both Halloween and Fall, I decided I would put it out now. I completely forgot about it last year. It’s got sort of a primitive feel to it, that I am loving right now. I also bought these two wool felt acorns from a woman in my stitching guild last month. Aren’t they fabulous. I just love them. I bought them to use for decorating, but they can be used as pincushions as well. I’d love to figure out how to make these, then I could make a whole bowl full!
I filled this crystal bowl with acorns of a different sort.
I also brought out my amber glass turkeys for the dining room table, along with my fall table runner.
I keep thinking I want to get out my cakestand and arrange some gourds and mini pumpkins on it as a center piece. I may still do that. It’s worth a try anyway.
Our home feels a little cozier, and I am looking forward to the holiday season.
