Fall Tidbits

I am still in France….and by now, I am hoping that I have found some great treasures…

Today, I just want to share some Fall Tidbits from the previous year…


My collection of Velvet Pumpkins…

…..I saved some stems from last year and hope to make a few this year.


Or maybe I could duplicate this felted wool pillow that I purchased from a craft show long ago….


I truly love this season of pumpkins and wonderful tones of oranges and browns.


And fall wreaths and pumpkins welcoming friends and family.


I just took out the boxes of Fall decor from the attic and hope to create a garland..

…..out of these pretty stems that I purchased last year to make this centerpiece.


And need to help plan a special birthday party for my mom, who will be 88 in November..

…..it’s a surprise. 88..a great year…”double infinity”.

I am sure you are all busy making your home warm and inviting, preparing for the Fall Season…

You will get some great inspiration from this great Fall Party starting September 30th.


Have a wonderful day!!

    I have special idea for your Mom’s birthday……at 88 I am sure there are loys of relatives and descendants…..send them all a page of a book and tell them to write, draw, create “what I Love about (insert name). Bind the pages all up and give as the birthday gift. My daughter did this for me and I treasure it. Secondly, ask your Mother to select things that she wants to pass on. Have her give them at the birthday so she can treasure the pleasure of the recipients. I’m assuming she is as generous and loving as my MIL who did this…….good luck!

  6. Everything is so beautiful. I love your velvet pumpkins and the centerpiece on the dining table is fabulous. Hugs, marty
