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.


  1. Your fall decorations are beautiful. I love the "washtub turned wagon", what a great idea. Your mantel looks so nice. I'm adding your blog to my blogroll. I'll be checking back often.

  2. It's all looking so cozy. That pumpkin face is so funny! Are you not burning the candles because they are on the wall? I love the look of candles but all the scents make me and hubby sneeze like crazy. I have to look for unscented ones and they are hard to find. My kids always blow them out so I don't light them anyway.

  3. Oooooh what delightful Halloween decorations! Everything looks so beautiful and welcoming, you really do have an eye for decorating. I also love how you decorated the outside of your home.

    I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to return your visit but I've now added you to my Bloglines:-) I do hope you come by, I look forward to getting to know you better!

    Happy Halloween:-) xox

  5. Three Little Witches

    One little, two little, three little witches
    Fly over haystacks and fly over ditches
    Fly over moonbeams without any hitches
    Hey, it's Halloween night.
    One little, two little, three little witches
    Fly over barb wire and tore their britches
    Had to go home and get some stitches
    Hey, it's Halloween night!! hehe

    Just wanted to wish you a Happy Halloween:-) xoxo

  6. Everything looks so...Autumn and just beautiful!
    You have such a cozy and inviting home. I thought the tissue paper garland was such a cute idea..especially if you were having a party or family gathering. Just adds a party atmosphere!
