More Autumn Pictures

The Autumn plaque was purchased from a craft vendor
at last years
Craftsman Show in Richmond.

My favorite wax jack-o-lanterns have these comical faces.
Even better when lit!

I added fall mix to my longaberger basket.

More Beeman pinecone candles.
These I will never burn, I love 'em so much!
The garland is tissue paper. I can make you some if you like!

The wax Jack-o-lanterns look great
with a tea light inside when not stacked
or the battery operated light could be used if stacked.

The candle shade and the above jack-o-lanterns were purchased seven years ago from Illuminations where I
worked for a time before they closed at our local outlet mall.

The mantel in the den comes alive with the fall color. The Atlas jar is filled with faux pumpkins and gourds. The candles came from the dollar store as I don't intend to burn them. I added fall picks to the boxwood in the pitcher.

It's Autumn Around The Cottage

The front door has a garland lighted with acorn shaped bulbs for a soft glow at night. I bought this from Plow and Hearth a few years ago.
I made the little mat with crochet trim.The pinecone candles are made by TheBeeman in North Carolina! The hurricanes came from

Willie goes crazy when I am taking pictures. Here I got him to settle down, but he gave me a wink that it wasn't for long.

In my front hall is this table with the 3 tier stand filled with potpourri. I simply changed the vine around the handle and added some small faux pumpkins. The crow silhouettes are from Martha Stewart bought at Michaels. I made Fall Greetings tag that was grudged to smell like cinnamon.
Another Beeman pinecone candle.
New this year is this lovely pumpkin head doll I bought at a crafter's mart in Yorktown called Granny Lou's on route 17.

This three tier planter was filled with flowers.Now it has fall leaves, real gourds and mini pumpkins. I added pip berry sprigs here and there in between.

Wrought iron plant stands make the perfect landing place for the pumpkins. These are fake. I have had problems in the past with squirrels eating holes right into real pumpkins. How do you like the pansies and kale?
Pumpkins greet you on the steps, here is one of them.

Now for real pumpkins and also mums which must be kept watered.
