Random Fallness

Shiny stuff.... I can't resist it! I got a few minor things at Home Goods a couple weeks ago, including this little pun'kin teapot. I also recently bought the glass spire thingy to help replace some of my recently shattered mercury glass, sacrificed to the Harry Potter party cause a couple months ago. The picture of great-great aunt Esther has been in the family for years. Like, 10 years, since I bought the photo in a box lot at an auction and stuck it in this frame. (I don't have any pictures of my actual relatives, so I borrow other people's... sssshhhh)

Also, I guess these might be considered tacky by some, but I just love my little leafy window clings in my front door sidelights. I got some rats and bats for Halloween, but they must wait for Mandy to come home from college this weekend and help decorate.

I am partial to snowflakes for winter, so be on the lookout after Thanksgiving.

More shiny stuff! I got the pumpkin last year on after-Christmas sale (50% off of the clearance price) at Tuesday Morning, so this is the first year I have it out. I bought the green pitcher at Home Goods a couple months back, attracted by the shiny bronze-looking handle. I just recently bought the tureen. Look at that shiny little metallic knob! I also love the creamy finish and the texture of the pattern. Shiny stuff makes me happy.

What makes you happy? Have a good week!

Metamorphosis Monday - Spring to Fall

It's time for Metamorphosis Monday, thanks to Susan!!

The last couple days have been very Fall-like here, cool and rainy, which put me in the mood to rip out my dying annuals and replace them with a few mums. My foyer is extremely dirty right now from my tracking mud through it yesterday, but I got it done.



I love mums, they are happy flowers.

I got this beautiful Cinderella pumpkin yesterday. I just love these!

Have a great week, everyone!

Cloche Party Time!

Marty's long-anticipated Cloche Party is upon us. I am showing a few cloches I have dressed up a bit for fall with things I already had around the house. I have a couple of acorn tureens that are a perfect size to fit inside, and I also used a flameless candle with some small Dickens volumes, as well as a ceramic pumpkin. I'm hoping to get more ideas from everyone else participating!

Happy Cloche Party!
