Welcome in! I've done a little Fall fluffing recently. No, decorating, silly. Even though it's, 104 out here these days! I think I'll just turn the air down really low and pretend.
You are greeted with some, not all, of Fall's natural decorations. No, the pumpkin isn't real. I don't think they're even in our grocery stores yet. Lesson learned from last year, don't put real mini pumpkins in apothecary jars. Mold INVASION! They sure were cute, though.
I shredded an old and falling apart book for the silver bowl. Aren't the felted acorns cute?
Specially chosen jelly beans in a candy jar from DD1's wedding. The dish, not the candy. Whew, I keep having to explain myself. The photo on the right is a beautiful Fall snapshot of my 3 favorite people from A LONG time ago.
What? You need a place to set your coffee? Sorry, pretty decor comes first. Real dried leaves from 13 years ago when we lived in Massachusetts.
The blue candles may have to go when I find something more autumnal.
(said really fancy because it's a big word that I don't really use). I added a little more to the mantel that you can see here.
I saw this idea on someone's blog, to use old book pages as a bobeche. I like them as long as there's not a burning candle below them. Oops. No! I did not.
I received this cute little sparkly clothes pin and feathers in a gift that I won from Star's Fault. Check her blog out, she's very creative.
Finally, thought I'd let you see what I have to put up with around here.
I just have no support, no support for all my hard work. ;-)
