I hope everyone is enjoying their last long weekend of summer...we are doing stuff around the house here...had hurricane Irene blow through last weekend and lost power for 24 hours...I feel so fortunate to have only been without electricity for a day when there are folks all around us that have been without it for an entire week!...we also lost a native tree in our backyard that hubs needs to rent a chainsaw for...other than that, we were very very lucky!
I have made more progress with my Autumn decorating and wanted to share some more pics with you...first there is this beautiful basket that was custom made for me by Pam ...I told her what I was looking for and gave her some dimensions and voila!...I love it!...I've filled it with the Artificial Fall Boxwood that I sell in my shoppe...the cute little doll I got a couple of years ago, it was made by Lori ...and the sweet little Small Pumpkin Square is American made Redware and available in my shoppe!
I think it finishes off the display nicely:
Here's a full view of the cabinet, it's a favorite piece of furniture made a couple of years ago by hubs!
Now these next things are also new...arriving just yesterday, by way of the Royal Mail, is the cute folky pumpkin head doll you see on the right, made by my dear friend Karen in the UK...the sweet pumpkin lady doll on the left was made for me by Jenn ...I think they look cute together!...the little pumpkins in the foreground are from the set of 24 Assorted Little Pumpkins I sell in my shoppe:
Here's a full view of the foyer table:
In that same Royal Mail box was the prairie doll you see there on the right, also made by Karen and another of Jenn's pumpkin lady dolls on the left...the iron Tall Ring CandleHolder is available in my shoppe!
Here's a full view of my primitive stepback cupboard...hubs dislikes this piece, he says it belongs outdoors, but I don't care, what does he know! LOL...the folky doll hanging on the left door was made by Jackie!
This pumpkin here is a very special pumpkin...it was also inside the Royal Mail box but it was something I was not expecting!...it was a gift, handmade with love, from my dear friend Karen!...thank you again Karen!
The little chippy white table by the front door looks basically the same as last year with the addition of another one of Jenn's pumpkin lady dolls!
This is my view from the sofa...the black cabinet houses our tv and all that stuff...over in the make-do chair, which was made by Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm, I've got a pumpkin pillow that I've had for a couple of years, it made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow, and the kitty hanging on the peg rail, I've had for a few years now, and it was made by Dawn ...the hooked pumpkin mat you see there on the coffee table is new and it was made by Pat of Ginger Creek Primitives:
Speaking of the coffee table...I had added one more little pillow to my bowl display...the pillow was made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow...and if you like the bowl, I still have a few left in my shoppe, it's the Large Rustic Chopping Bowl...I also have the Pumpkin Spice Wax Bars currently available!
On the left side of the fireplace hearth sits an olde ladderback chair which is usually where my group of favorite dolls sits but for Autumn I have kept the largest doll, which is from Arnetts, and have a Salem pumpkin along with a pinkeep that I made from a Stacy Nash pattern.
Well that's what I've been up to!...I've also loaded all my pics up on Picture Trail if you prefer viewing them there...I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday tomorrow and a fantastic week!
