Decorating for Autumn
Have you started decorating for Autumn yet?
This year, I just had to try using one of my crocheted doilies to decorate
I'm very happy with how this one turned out.
I applied the doily simply using a glue stick around the edges because
this pumpkin is real and won't last forever, so I should be able to salvage the
crochet piece to use with something else later.
Do you guys know this plant below?
I never heard of these until I moved to Seattle, and now I look
forward to them every fall.
So much fun to decorate with!
There's so many unusual pumpkins out there, and I
loved these tiny orange ones. Didn't take any time at all to
crochet a decoration for this baby.
I thought this was a very interesting one too and ties in the light
pumpkins with the orange ones.
Right now, I have some placed on our mantel. The two little ones are not
real but I wanted to give them as gifts.
I still can't get enough of these moody blooms!
A couple of weeks ago, we had some of our neighbors over for a BBQ and
Stephanie brought me this lovely bouquet from her garden. She placed them in
a large Ball jar and tied a bow of crocheted lace around it. Wonder how she
knew I was crazy about crochet? Hee hee. :-)
I think those sweet friends will be the recipients of my little crocheted pumpkins!
We have been blessed with some very lovely weather lately!
Foggy, somewhat chilly mornings followed by afternoon sunshine.
I spent some time yesterday cleaning and winterizing things on our deck and
it feels so clean and nice to still be able to enjoy sitting out there.
Hope you have a lovely week,
Hope you're having a lovely week!
I LOVE Chinese lanterns!!! Aren't they just gorgeous?
Love seeing your wedding photo on the mantel.
Thank you for your kind words on my sewing painting.
