Fall Tour

My preoccupation with hunting canned pumpkin briefly distracted me from fall decorating.  There was also a couple of days of cold and rain that delayed my outdoor work but it's all good now.  A warm day and an impending event I'm hosting at my house got me motivated to decorate.

Here’s my table with the pumpkin and pine cone candles  that I purchased at Pottery Barn last year.  The pumpkins are in the catalog this fall as well.  I can’t bring myself to actually burning them!

A little randomness on my kitchen island.  There was a smaller glass pumpkin filled with tootsie rolls but The Princess got this cute bag for homecoming activities this week so we switched it out for the smaller pumpkin (not to mention that we ate all the tootsie rolls).

Here’s a ceramic bowl that I purchased way back in my Texas days on a visit to Canton.  I created a pedestal for it by turning a stoneware bowl upside down and setting the Trick or Treat bowl on top.

Photos from Halloweens of Yore.  I’m no seamstress but always favored imagination and using what we had around the house in favor of store bought costumes.  We had some great ones throughout the years.  The bottom picture is my favorite.  A pirate, Robin Hood, and baby Princess as Minnie Mouse!

My porch is still in process.  This picture was my inspiration but re-creating it has escaped my grasp for this year. I’ll post the porch picture when it’s done.

I’m a little late to the party, but be sure to stop by Southern Hospitality for some other fall decorating ideas.  I have Rhoda to thank for clueing me into Windows Live Writer.  This is my second post using it and it has made posting with pictures SOOOOO much easier.  You can read her post about it here as well as other blogging tips.
