Fall Decorating

I did a little fall decorating this weekend. Even though in Texas, you don't see the "changing of the seasons" as much as you do any other states, Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. This is a picture of an old school desk that I picked up at a flea market many years ago. My hubby loves this little desk and tends to "pile it up" with his junk -- hunting/fishing magazines, etc. When he saw this, he just said "hump....girl stuff". LOL! Here is a picture of our mantle. If you notice the candle to the right of the clock, that is a handmade beeswax candle that came from Frankfurt, Germany. The picture to the right is my parents' wedding picture. The antique frame belonged to my "Aunt Eller". The glass is cracked, but that is the way it was when I got it -- just haven't changed it out!
Here's a little hutch in my kitchen that my hubby made for me a number of years ago. He used to do a lot of woodworking in his "younger years".
This is the top two shelves of the hutch. My new doll, "Carla Jo", sits to the left along with some of my roosters. She sits on a little doll quilt that I picked up at an antique store in Blanco, TX.
The bottom shelves are decorated with Fall stuff with a rooster tucked in there!
This is the fireplace screen.....Hubby gave it to me for Christmas a few years back. Not decorated too much.......

This is a quilt rack that hangs in my kitchen. Hubby made the quilt rack too. The pumpkin quilt was made a few years ago from Thimbleberries fabric.


On the shelf of the qult rack are some things special t o me. The old tin coffee pot to the left and the rolling pin on the left belong to my "Aunt Eller". The old wooden grater was my Mama's. All the other things are just some stuff I picked up "here and there."
The table in the kitchen sports a runner that matches the quilt hanging on the rack. It as three pumpkins, but one doesn't show well because the crock bowl with pumpkins is covering it up.

I have a yearning for a weiner and marshmellow roast on a cool evening, where I have to wear my sweater and the fire warms me just so. A hay ride would be nice too. Warm pumpkin pie and hot chocolate when we return. We were there, weren't we? Love your decor and you too! M
