Fall Deco

I know I haven't been around for the last couple of weeks but the beautiful Indian Summer we are having has allowed me to work in the yard. I am trying to make up for all the time I lost this summer while my hip healed.

I did do some fall decorating in the house and thought I would share with you before it is time to decorate for Christmas.
This darling little couple you see cuddled up under a pot of Autumn flowers is actually a music box. They sit on the buffet in my dining room.

These cute little guys have climbed a stack of books to see if they can spot any candy left from Halloween.

My mantel sports a few autumn leaves, some orange candles elevated on upturned wine glasses. And one of my favorite things to decorate with - unframed oils by amateur painters.
Mr. Scarecrow takes it easy while he guards the last pumpkin in the patch from atop the desk in the dining room.

Here a gourd filled with fall leaves is elevated above the dining table on a mirror that is resting on two vases filled with candy corn.

This cute metal pumpkin is dressing up the vintage sewing machine in my front entry.

Welcome to fall at my home.

Your fall decorations are beautiful! I know what you mean about catching up on the gardening, but it's been raining here for the last week and a half. Very frustrating! It may be nice this weekend, but I have plans for both days, Well, maybe after that! I'm having a giveaway and I'd be glad if you came over and entered. Good to see you up and around again. I missed you!

My goodness Sella it is so good to hear from you - you catching up on things makes sense now.

You have lovely decorations up for Thanksgiving - I bet your home is toasty and warm.

Glad to see you are alright!

I really love your Fall decorations Stella. My favourite is the scarecrow. He's gorgeous. I also like the display on the Singer sewing machine cabinet. I'm glad you're feeling well enough to get back in the yard!
Blessings, Star
the other Stella!

Lovely Stella! If I could have decorated a home like you can, I wouldn't have been so happy to sell the house and travel! You're very talented. Nice that you have the beautiful weather for a while.

Thanks for sharing your pretty Fall decorations. I needed to do more clean up outside today, but it was cold and wet.
Thanks for stopping by and nice comment on the cross necklace.
Enjoy your weekend.
