Has the weather where you are
started to give you subtle, little
hints about Fall being on it's way?
We have had some cool evenings.....and even
better, some cooling rains!
Thank you, Lord, for every drop of rain you have sent to
Five Gables Farm!
Since I can feel Fall coming and my calendar
is showing the first day of Fall approaching....
I need to start getting ready!
Out come the boxes of pumpkins
Owls and leaves....
Grapevines and gourds!
The first place Fall visited in our home this year
was the fireplace.
I began with....
....an old galvanized tub and a vintage
Good ol' hay went into the tub along with some
fall leaves and horse apples.
My sweet son in law, Jason, stopped beside the road
one day after work and gathered these horse apples for me.
I've always known he was a keeper!
Then it was time to add some pumpkins....
the big glittery one is my favorite!
Wish it looked as pretty
in the picture as it is in reality.
some small Fall picks,
some Indian corn,
a raffia bow,
some little scarecrow buddies,
an apple or two,
a lone sunflower,
the kitchen sink....oh wait, not that....
or in other words....
Tammy's stash of Fall "little stuff"....
and see what we come up with!
Then looped around the whole kit and caboodle
you'll see some grapevine!
I think it's done!
What do you think, Glitterinas?
Too much.....not enough.....hmmmm.
Here is what the whole fireplace area
Some funny, tall scarecrows found their
way to the mantel.....
.....along with some other
The pennant banner is new this year.
It reads "Hocus Pocus".....I'll
share how I made it in a future post.
It was simple and quick to make....it would be a fun
project to make with children!
I'll be sharing some more Fall touches that have found their way
to my house.
Here's a sneek peek at some:
Candy Corn Pocket
Framed Halloween Collage.
Oh my goodness, Glitterinas, it's going to
be a craft-a-palooza!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
