A beautiful Fall day!

It is a beautiful Fall day here in Kentucky! There is not to much going on around the home place other than trying to get things ready for winter. I need to get the rabbits and the chickens  ready for the cooler temps that are expected  at the end of the week.I thought that it would be a good time to share some more of my Fall decorations.So grab  the drink of your choice and let's take a little walk around the living room.Hope that you enjoy, I have a few more displays that I haven't taken pics of yet.

This is an old wardrobe that I redid a few years back .I usually have the doors open and display things inside but decided to close them for a while.


Wanted to share a close up of the patina on the old wooden bowl.There is a worn place on the rim that just fits if you were to carry it resting on your hip. I love it! The lamp I purchased from Tricia over at Hillcrest Home Prims ,so be sure to check out all of her awesome goodies!


This sits on my fireplace mantle, I redid the wood chest and painted the plate.The candle , candle holder,and mat are from a dear friend in Virginia.


This is on top of my tv cupboard.The pheasant pic is done in crewel embroidery ,not by me though. The small orange pumpkin is one that I made from a gourd.

I made over the firkin bucket earlier in the year.

My wonderful doll that I won from Marie over at Primitives by Old Lady Morgan .If you don't already know Marie then please hop on over and check her out.What an awesome talented lady Marie is and she keeps us chuckling


I just had to share a close up of Millie!

This sits on an antique sewing table.Notice the chips ...I can't decide if I should paint it or leave it alone.LOL!

Susan from Bless Your Pea Pickin Heart blog sent me this sweet maple leaf dish last Fall.I added some of my wool acorns to it.If you don't know Susan then please check her blog out !She is a wonderful ,sweet lady and talented to boot.

I was trying to get a god pic of the little Fall pic ...it is a favorite of mine.I think I found it at a flea market for a buck a few years ago.


This wall box  is actually a drawer from the wardrobe I shared in the first pic.It was broken so hubby made a new drawer for the wardrobe and I kept the old one and made a display box out of it.If my house ever caught on fire this would be one of the first things I'd grab.Crazy isn't it?

A very dear friend made me this beeswax bird medallion and I love it .It makes me smile every time I see it.I am so blessed to have two wonderful friends that are so talented in working with wax.LOL!

 The little nest is one that I found outside after a wind storm. Can you see the nylon string ? These little nests are such works of art.


More goodies from friends fill my old wooden trencher that rests on my coffee table.I painted the table with a folk art design years ago.

A close up of the pumpkins and goodies.

Well I hope that you had an enjoyable walk and that I did not loose you along the way.I have more that I will share later,don't want to scare you away with to many pics.Well I am off to start a project and just maybe a little lunch. Before I close though ,I really want to thank each one of you for the awesome comments that you left about my earlier post of  my Fall decor.I did not get the chance to reply to all of you but I did read and appreciate each comment! Have a blessed day my friends.Hugs,Jen
