Show and Tell Tuesday

Greetings Kids!

Welcome to the Thanksgiving Week edition of Show and Tell Tuesday. Today we have a special treat. Kelly has sent in photos of her home all decorated for the season. 🙂

First, here’s a view of her breakfast nook. Isn’t it festive? She loves the “turkey pumpkin” and I can see why. “Gobble till you wobble” – too cute!

Her shelves are also dressed for autumn! I have a feeling they’ll be sporting some Christmas decorations pretty soon 😉

I love this photo! Kelly has adorned her fireplace with gorgeous touches of fall color. Did you know that she enjoys gathering leaves at this time of year and then dipping them in paraffin to preserve them?

Thanks so much Kelly! You’ve put us throroughly in the mood. Bring on the stuffing and pumpkin pie! 😀

(If there should be any stockings hanging at that fireplace in the next month . . . it would be fun to see a photo. )


More pictures next Tuesday! If you haven’t already – please consider sending one of your photos, too! Hey, even if you have sent one, we’d love to see anything else you’d like to share!



Falling for Autumn

I must admit I’m just giddy about the fact that Autumn is almost here!

We’ve had some rather chilly nights lately, so our leaves are beginning to show the first hints of glorious color. Can I get a “Woo hoo!” on that??? 😉

And last night for dessert, we had pumpkin pie for the first time this season! Have I ever mentioned that I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie?

In fact, I’m so excited that fall is approaching, I even pushed aside my purple beads and decided to make something, well, fall-ish! Just a simple little choker necklace for a casual Autumn day . . .

I chose Swarovski amber-colored crystals and Czech glass beads with a coppery metallic finish. Perfect for a touch of sparkle at the neckline.
