I cannot resist the little pumpkins in the grocery stores.....I thought this was a cute way to display them around the house. Simple, but cute!
When we went to Graves Mountain a few weeks ago, we went up on the Skyline Drive and found these huge acorns. I gathered as many as I could (some for Shelby and some for me!) and brought them home. Melinda advised that I put them in the microwave for a minute, just to make sure there weren't any little varmints inside, and them I rubbed them with Old English Oil (the dark colored one). They look awesome! Then I put them in a container with a candle in the middle....this sits in the middle of our table.
While we were up at Baby Graves last weekend, I scoured the mountainside for bittersweet.....I just love it in the foyer...the colors are so autumnal. I did find it, but unfortunately I left it outside and it rained overnight and ruined it! But fortunately, while I was looking for the bittersweet, I found these......I think they look great in these metal vases I have! I have them in the foyer and in the sunroom!
Of course, I can hardly wait to get back up in the mountains.....I found some great pines and firs to make Christmas wreaths with. I'm not so sure that Shelby will be able to get a live Chrismas wreath in Texas, unless it's made with chili peppers, I plan to make one for her and mail it.....I'll post pics of them when they're done!
