I bought some miniature pumpkins & gourds for the dough bowl on our barn table in the kitchen.
Remember when I showed you this picture that I copied from Pinterest?
The hay kind of makes it.
I brought my favorite orange owl out and put him on my grandmother's old singer sewing machine.
We have this in our kitchen under the open shelves that hold all of the white dishes.
I'll show you a picture of the whole wall later....
Max is enjoying his afternoon nap on the cozy throw that finds its home on the sofa.
I'm not sure what kind of "FALL TOUCH" this picture is, but it kind of works.
Okay, I just love my dog so much it hurts, and I look for excuses to show him to you.
I added Indian corn, hay and fall leaves and the big gourd
to my extra large dough bowl on the sideboard in the dining room.
We used to live next to the sweetest lady in my hometown, and she made that gourd for me.
I ended up making a few for some friends, and they're really easy.
I'll try to remember to do a post on that project in the next few days....
This was also an idea that I got from Pinterest.
I loved the idea of putting a small pumpkin on each place setting in the dining room.
I am loving the bright orange up against the soft blue plates!
This has turned out to be one of my favorite nooks in the rental house.
The desk has always been in my daughter's room,
but it doesn't fit in this house, so it's now in our family room.
I added the basket underneath with a quilt that my grandmother made us for our wedding.
Baskets and blankets kind of scream FALL to me.
This is just a close up of the basket and the blanket.
When we first got married, we pulled the blanket out to snuggle under it,
and we got stuck with all the hundreds of pins that my sweet grandmother forgot to take out.
It was hilarious.
Now that she is gone, this blanket means so much to me.
I love knowing that she hand stitched the whole thing just for us.
Can you tell that I love Indian corn?
These are my small attempts at adding fall around the house in the midst of this crazy move.
I'm not the only one adding touches...
God is showing up in his creation all around me!
As I type this post, I'm staring at the most glorious tree in my front yard,
and it's dripping with orange and yellow and red leaves.
84. colorful trees.
85. chilly weather.
86. the crab cake recipe from Pinterest that I'm cooking tonight.
87. our family devotion this morning.
