|On the Front Door you'll find this hanging. We have so many squirrels here that it's only appropriate to show them on the front door along with their acorns that we seem to find buried all over the yard, and in my flowerpots. We had two squirrels that frequented the bird feeder this year, one had a very thin tail and I called him Bucky. He came everyday along with his friend Buster! They were there every morning for a while and now and then Blackie would visit. We didn't see too many black squirrels this year at our feeder. I didn't make this felted wall hanging, it was made by a friend who blogs under the name of "The Raspberry Rabbits." She is a folk artist and she is from Wilmington NC. |
Here's a photo of our door, you can see the squirrel hanger, and the fall leaves surrounding it and the door glass. Hey! I'm even seen in the glass, I'm not a leaf although if it were snowing I might consider myself a "flake." Ha Ha!!
Let's move on to the living room!
This is a wall hanging I just completed. Sorry for the light in the pic, it was a gloomy day when this was taken so I needed the lamp turned on. This was a fabric panel with the fall leaves and little bird. I purchased a curtain rod and little clip hangers to hang it by and put a few on the bottom to help it hang straight, still not 100% straight yet. This was my first attempt at free-motion quilting. I outlined each leaf with red thread, each maple whirleyjigs in gold along with the bird. It turned out better than I thought it would. My friend, Eileen, sent me a panel for Christmas, so I'm hoping that it will fit in this same area and I can switch these out for every season or holiday. You'll see the Christmas one coming up next, as soon as I begin and finish it!
A few more fall leaves on these pillows as well as the quilt behind it. This quilt was from a few years ago during a blog hop I participated in, called Autumn Jubilee. Autumn Jubilee will be beginning again on Oct 1st and I can't wait to sew and see what Carole "From My Carolina Home" has in store for us this year. You can view her blog by clicking on the link above and see what the Autumn Jubilee is all about. Carole is from the mountains of North Carolina. She has some beautiful scenery on her blog as well as her gardens and wildlife visitors. I enjoy reading her blog very much and think you would to. Take a look, see!!
More leaves on the mantle.
The puffed, fabric pumpkins with raffia is something that I've had for years and years.
Moving throughout the house, let's visit the Master Bedroom
Here you will find a few Autumn Leaves
This is just a little arrangement that is on the corner shelf which is a slab of wood from our tree that Bernie made into a shelf. Who are those youngins in that photo! circa. 1977
Here is a table runner that I made last year. I try to do something for fall every year. I like the subtle colors of this and it matches perfectly with the sage green walls. You can also see one of our little hardwood lamps with fireplace that we make.
Another pillow cover for fall with leaves.
And this vintage Home Interior picture of deer in an Autumn meadow graces our wall in the hallway all year long!
Working our way into the kitchen......
These magnets are just the cutest things. I find them at the local pharmacy in Ohio. I have quite a few of them that live on the refrig during the seasons.
Kitchen towel of Autumn Leaves.
Another item that I love is this wax burner. It was from a Party Lite party years ago of a co-worker.
Here is a cute little guy, I think it is Bucky again! This time I know just where he is hiding his acorn. This little magnet was made gosh, when we lived in Pittsburgh. I bet it is at least 20 years old.
And how about this? Mrs. Meyer's Dish Soap has Autumn Leaves and Acorns on it! This is not a company that I own, but love their products.
This charger holding an apple flavored candle was a gift from my daughter-in-law a few years back. I admired hers and she bought me one. I have a pumpkin ring that goes around the candle, but I took it off so you could see the Autumn Leaves.
This little fabric candy dish was a find at the Ashtabula Craft Show on the Lake. I have to figure out how to make these. It is just the cutest thing.
