Signs of Fall

I've been trying to do a little bit of fall decorating, but I'm not finished w/it yet.  Here are some things I put on our front porch so far.  I made this owl out of 100% wool a couple of yrs. ago to use as a pin cushion.  He has a weighted bottom so he stands up better and usually sits in the corner of my sewing counter.  I snatched him off of there so he could enjoy the fresh outdoors for awhile, ha.

This is a Deco Mesh wreath that a friend from church made for us as a thank you for letting her family borrow our camper this summer.  It is actually way bigger in person than it looks here.  I thought she did a beautiful job on it.  (you should have seen the looks of envy when she handed it to me after church was over and I carried it out the door) :))
 Her mom was the one who actually made it for her to give to us and she is giving a demo at our church tomorrow night during 'Crafters Night Out'.  I am helping w/getting a group started and it's been a lot of fun so far.  We thought maybe we'd do a demo each month on a different craft/hobby, then work on a project of our own, and of course there will be snacks!!  Can't have a craft nite w/out snacks, now can we?

 I want to add some pumpkins and maybe a few more things to the place mat when I can 'dig' them out of storage later.  I have tons of fall decor to dig through, so it may take me awhile.

Next week I want to invite all of you WOOL lovers out there to a blog hop that I am participating in.  I will be back in a few days w/a list of blogs you'll want to visit each day.  I am scheduled for Friday the 27th, and I plan on having a give~away as well and I'm sure there will be others who will be doing that too.  You won't want to miss this talented group of wooly lovers!! "))

 Check back soon and I will have more details for you in a few days.  As always, thanks for stopping by!

I enjoyed seeing your fall decorations. I am dragging mine out this weekend. Happy Fall!

Hi Tanya,
Well I sure can see how all those eyes were looking at that wreath...what a beautiful thank you gift.
I saw many styles of this wreath at the shows we have been at lately - people were grabbing them fast. I see how big it actually is in one of the photos when you have something to compare it with.

I like what you did on the chair on the porch - glass window and the runner/mat...very pretty.

You can count on me being back for the wool hop...hope I don't miss it.
