There was a little nip in the air this weekend in Arkansas. It inspired me to get out my pretty velvet pumpkins, which were made by my friend, Susie.
I am so blessed to have such a talented and generous friend. Along with the velvet pumpkins, I used some mercury glass pumpkins that I bought on sale after Thanksgiving a couple of years ago.
A wreath of berries and a Fall tag (also crafted by Susie) decorate the lamp.
The vintage gold vases were a gift from my friend, Audrey. I’ve had the decorative leaf plates for a long time.
Susie also crafts, and generously gives away, velvet acorns. Some of them, along with a couple of her pumpkins are under this cloche. (I know you’re wishing that Susie was your friend.)
On the table with the cloche, I have used “grape gatherers”. The boy and girl figures came from a flea market.
I purchased the needlepoint piece at an estate sale years ago.
Wishing you Autumn Blessings.
A huge thank you to those who sent me such kind messages following my last post. I’m still working on my attitude, but your messages meant so much to me, and I am grateful for each of you. Wishing you a lovely “nip- in-the-air” week. laurie
(P.S. I still haven’t figured out why a “pin it” button doesn’t work on my site. I have had to install the “hovering pin it button. (If you hover over an image with your curser, a small pin button appears in the top left corner of the image.) I hope it doesn’t drive you crazy, but right now, it’s the only way to allow my images to be pinned.)
