I've also been heavy cleaning this ole' home sweet home so I can decorate it for fall.
I made the big cloth pumpkins above years ago. This year I decided to take them down to just the pumpkin (ripped off the felt leaves and raffia bows) and redo them using natural burlap, grungy sunflowers, and pip berries. My sister gave me the big cloth turkey years ago and he needed a facelift too. I don't have a craft room like a lot of ladies do but I do have a big laundry room so this is where I usually do my crafting.
Ignore the raw wood walls of my hallway, that's one of the main construction projects going on around here right now this week. But do look at that big ceramic pumpkin. I added our initial and re-stained it for a grungier look. Arrange a few pip berries and there you go! I think it'll look better than ever when I get going with decorating the our little farmhouse kitchen. Shhh, don't tell but it's really a cookie jar.
More sneaky peaky pictures to come. Have I mentioned I'm ready for fall? I think I've put that in the last few blog postings because I just can't help myself.
