A little fall decorating

Since I didn't decorate for fall last year, I decided to start a little early this year.    Last year, since we had just moved in, the thought of unpacking more boxes was a bit daunting, so I just "let it go".   This year, I put up my decorations right after Labor Day.


Oh look, there are those wavy borders again...  :)

 I used to make and sell dolls at a crafts fair while living in Calif.   This little witch was fun to make.   I always like unpacking them and reminiscing.





I made the little scarecrow on the top shelf and the one sitting on the pumpkin on the middle shelf.  


A closer look.


This quilt on my dining room table was a pattern in an issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine a very long time ago.  Maybe 2000 or 2001

Come back for part 2 and there might be a little surprise....

I love your fall decorating! You always have soo many different little things for each season!
I love your quilt rack on which hangs your fall quilt (dark wood with hearts). Don't think I'll be able to find this in Belgium :-).
Thanks for sharing!

Love your decorating taste! I have not gotten ONE thing out this fall to decorate! I do however have my mini Charlie Brown tree from last Christmas still in the kitchen window! Left the Christmas snow balls on all year and added my seasonal goodies to it. Not much to do to get it ready for Christmas this year! LOL. We like to use the lights for evening glow, so...we left it out. Thanks for sharing your decs...love the look!

I so like the quilt that is fall folk art, upper left has a angel, upper right has a crow.
If that is a pattern, would you mind telling the name and who is the maker.
That is the cutest quilt, and I want to make my first fall quilt.
Thank you...Karengcg
