Anita wanted to see pics of my fall decorating.
Come on in while I fix a cup of tea and enjoy the visit.
I am lousy with floral arrangements so mom made a beautiful wreath for my door.
The antique cookstove is my favorite place to decorate. I purchased this at a yard sale in 1993 while the hubby was away. He took the sons to a car race in Ohio and came home to this sitting on the deck.
It was a steal price. Unfortunately while he was laying the circular brick stoop in our kitchen for the bargain stove, he slashed his leg with a brick hammer. Required multiple stitches and a week home from work.
So much for the bargain price. (sigh)(see? he's not safe with tools......lol)
The pie safe that my dad built for me a few Christmas's ago.
Don't tell anyone but it's full of knitting projects and gadgets. Great place to house....er....hide stuff:).
The ladder to the loft in the living room. The scarecrows are stapled (yes, wood stapled to the ladder). A few years ago, after Mr. Bettis's arrival, a certain cat (Ms. Aurora presumably) climbed the ladder knocking down a beautiful scarecrow. Mr. Bettis proceeded to shred the poor thing so my mom made another. So I staple everything so it doesn't become Mr. Bettis's plaything.
Now that I look at this pic, I need to hide the cord to the lighting in the loft.
The loft is adorned pumpkins (not real ones) and a few other decorations along with leaf garland and a string of white lights.
I love fall. My most favorite time of the year. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Come again!
