Adding a Touch of Fall to the Kitchen Counters

This year,  I'm decorating a little different for fall.  

 Instead of putting my existing decor away and doing a complete fall makeover on the kitchen counters,   I'm just adding fall touches to the vignettes I already have in place.

Lavender Tablescape and Purple Sweet Potato's

I found the prettiest set of dishes over the week end at a yard sale and couldn't wait to use them in a tablescape.

Styling a Fall Vignette

When you are creating a vignette,   how many times do you switch things around before you are happy with your creation?

Fall Farmhouse Tablescape

I began to think I wasn't going to get my tablescape changed out this week!      On Thursdays,   I try to set the table with different dishes that we will use all week long.
   I was really running behind because we had a big limb on one of the trees in the backyard break off and land on the greenhouse.     More on that later!      The limb was so big you couldn't even see the's been a big clean up!    I took lots of photos and will do a post on it pretty soon.

Dressing My Pumpkin

This was such a fun project!  
I have made pumpkins from fabric before,  but I hadn't ever dressed a plastic pumpkin in one of my old!

Fall Touches in the Kitchen and Secrets to Cooking a Brisket

Brisket is one of H's favorite things to cook.   He cooked one Friday,   then our daughter stopped by and we gave her some.....then two of the grands came by and we gave them some to take home   So,  he picked up another one and cooked it Saturday.   (We like to have brisket  in the freezer ready to eat when we don't have time to cook.)

Ticking Stripe Pillow Pumpkins

     When I saw some pillow pumpkins on Pinterest,  I thought to myself  "how could I make some to use in my fall decorating..... with very little sewing involved"     I don't really like to sit in front of a sewing machine,  but I don't mind doing a little hand work in the evening while I'm relaxing in my recliner.

Week End Treasure Hunt

I didn't get a chance to do a weekend treasure hunt post last week,   so this post is actually a combination of two weeks finds.
