It's Beginning..........................

To look a lot like Autumn everywhere you go. 
Take a look at the grocery aisle 
 filled with yummy Candy Corn 
and Caramel apples galore. 
It's beginning to look a lot like Autumn 
Jack-o-lanterns in every store, 
but the prettiest things to see is the fall wreath 
and decorations that will be right in your own home.

Saturday, the first day of Autumn, I love this time of year so much .........the colors  of fall.... the smells of burning leaves, cider, baking apple pie.........the maple candy..... pumpkin butter.......
pork chops with apples......the scarecrows, ghosts, goblins, and witch's that appear this time of year......and all the decorating in warm earthy tones. sigh. 

A little table for one and serving hutch on the kitchen porch

When decorating in the Fall I even like to bring the inside out...er....outside in....er...I just think anywhere can show your style with a few pieces strategically placed.


Little Punkin with her Fraidy Cat. Aren't they cute

The Autumn throw on our glider also on the kitchen porch...ah...sweet dreams of my mountains

My designs begin to reflect the season too. Remember this pic last week?
Well, let me introduce you to Amber Autumn....................................................................
She is a 1940's World Doll. Now being over 70 she needed a little makeover, but today her red satin slip has been layered by a 1940-50's hankie I hand-embroidered and embellished with plastic flowers from a 1960's candle ring and small metallic Fall leaves. Her wings are made from the same plastic foliage and dried skeleton leaves used in scrapbooking. She is crowned by dried statice and more metallic fall leaves.
And, here's the other pic from that same post..............................................................................................

Surprize !!!
           It's a pillow. I took a 1960's crushed velvet sofa pillow and added a little bouquet of vintage plastic fall flowers and new pumpkins...voile'. This could be used to accent a chair or sofa, but it also looks neat as a table centerpiece with fall gourds and wooden candlesticks.  Both this pillow and Amber the Autumn Angel are available for $24.99 each. 
So, that's it for this post. Next time I'll show you my new case display for Fall with more new designs and some vintage Fall ideas from my magazine collection. See ya then!
Oh, and don't forget to go to my Weekly Blog Parties Page at the top of my blog to visit all those fun and inspirational people.

Oh...You are so right...there's such a sweetness to the Autumn air! We lived in Knoxville for 13 years and made so many trips up into the Smokys. You are blessed to live in such a wonderful part of the country!

Hi,
I loved this post. Pretty decorating for fall. I laughed when I saw that pillow, because I think I used to have one just like it. :)
