Pumpkin Stem Mushrooms


I couldn't wait to share the mushrooms I made today using pumpkin stems.

Farmhouse Fall Kitchen Tour


I finished the last section of fall decorating in the kitchen.     I am blessed to have a large kitchen,   but I'm also not as young as I used to be........so,  I decorate in sections over about a week long period.

Sheep Tapestry and Pastel Pumpkins


I'm not quite sure how long I've had a fairy garden on the buffet in the sun room,   but I noticed that I created a fall fairy garden on it in September 2 years ago.    So,  I think it's time for a change,  don't you!

Fall in the Kitchen


I am loving the different varieties of pumpkins the farmers are growing now.      I didn't use real pumpkins in my fall decorating in the past because orange didn't fit into my existing home decor .   Then,  the white pumpkins appeared and I would pick up a few of them....now  it's hard for me not to come home with a truck load of pretty pumpkins.

Adding a Touch of Fall to the Kitchen Counters



This year,  I'm decorating a little different for fall.  

 Instead of putting my existing decor away and doing a complete fall makeover on the kitchen counters,   I'm just adding fall touches to the vignettes I already have in place.

Lavender Tablescape and Purple Sweet Potato's


I found the prettiest set of dishes over the week end at a yard sale and couldn't wait to use them in a tablescape.

Styling a Fall Vignette


When you are creating a vignette,   how many times do you switch things around before you are happy with your creation?

Fall Farmhouse Tablescape


I began to think I wasn't going to get my tablescape changed out this week!      On Thursdays,   I try to set the table with different dishes that we will use all week long.
   I was really running behind because we had a big limb on one of the trees in the backyard break off and land on the greenhouse.     More on that later!      The limb was so big you couldn't even see the greenhouse....it's been a big clean up!    I took lots of photos and will do a post on it pretty soon.

Dressing My Pumpkin



This was such a fun project!  
I have made pumpkins from fabric before,  but I hadn't ever dressed a plastic pumpkin in one of my old shirts......lol!

Fall Touches in the Kitchen and Secrets to Cooking a Brisket


Brisket is one of H's favorite things to cook.   He cooked one Friday,   then our daughter stopped by and we gave her some.....then two of the grands came by and we gave them some to take home   So,  he picked up another one and cooked it Saturday.   (We like to have brisket  in the freezer ready to eat when we don't have time to cook.)
