Fall Decor Cont'd

Welcome to my Seasonal Sunday Post
Our Dear Tablescaper has continued her Sunday Meme into Fall.

So...ya'll get to see more of the clean up that went on to get ready for my 1st Prayer group session for youngest's Elementary School.  The girls knew I'd been struggling with Fibro and Sinus Infection so they were very impressed at how nice things looked. lol

To find out if there is a Moms In Touch group meeting at your child's school click and use the Find a Group feature.  It only takes you and 1 other Mom or G'ma to start a group!
I've been leading our Ele school for my 5th year now and I've prayed with Intermediate school for my 3rd. 

Cleaned and Decorated for Fall, YES I did!

Ya'll, this beloved quilt is from Cracker Barrell several yrs ago (75% clearance).  I just took down everything that was there and put this up right where my Advent quilt will have to go too.
Got out a fall cloth and pumpkin garland for the lamp table.  I scored that pillow cover with the W for $5 each from Ballard's Design (got 2 of them) and received free monogramming.  Had to move Hoppy Vanderbear "Harecrow" in here too with the happy Jack O Lantern softie.

I burned that Vanilla Bean candle a bunch so the house would smell yummy too.

Ele school mascot is a terrapin (turtle) so I have 1 on the coffee table with my scarcrow box.

This was a Hobby Lobby clearance item 1 year.
There is a cookie jar somewhere in my Fall stash too in this same series.

I used it to put my coasters into once I cleared all the junk off the table.
I took it outside to get a better pic of it for Debby at Cozy Blanket. :)
Now that things are more cleaned up too...Hubby hung these rod-iron pieces for me that I've been waiting to see hung here for probably 1.5 years.  I like them..they tie into the curtain rod and the hardware and lights in the kitchen.  We still have decorative molding to hang above and below upper cabinets. sigh.
Did anyone spot Jack Beagle in the shot eating bkfst? lol
I scored the stitch work piece behind my eldest at Canton Trade days in '03 for $3 in the back 40 Junking area. :D  I love it!...wagon full of Hay that was harvested headed to market.

My reward for the hard work after school Friday was this.. 

Not the greatest quality pic but what I see in it is my beloved Hubby and eldest laughing with a joke book in Hubby's fav chair that has been cleared of laundry piles and his ottoman has been moved back in place from the entry where it was stacked high with debris.  And, Sonic Kitty is curled up at Daddy's leg in Bliss.

I'm a simple woman...Peeps...I just want my home to function and my family to be happy.
And..Hubby took us to the mall and I got buy 1 get 1 free Yankee Candles to burn this fall season.  I had gotten a card in the mail last week.  Their in store deal is buy 1 get 1 1/2 price.

Also, I finally get to tag into Show Off Your Cottage Monday with Cielo for the 1st time in a long while.  Let's hope I remember to do it.  lol

Between Naps on the Porch...Met Monday

Maybe some more as the week progresses.



  1. I love what you posted. The fall decor is really nice.
    All things I like. Love vanilla candles and scarecrows. Tell me about that box on the table. My eyes went right to that.
    I posted pictures of my gifts on my blog. Thanks again.
    Hope you feel better.

  2. Denise your Fall decor is beautiful!

    Burning the vanilla bean candle is wonderful for the aroma. I was in ER with high BP a few years ago. The person monitoring my blood pressure told me burning vanilla candles or the scent of vanilla has a natural calming affect. I am now on BP meds but still remember to burn the vanilla candles for extra measure.

  3. Denise..I love the change of decorations!! It looks very warm and inviting. Canton huh..that is my hometown..I love First Monday!!

    Hope you get to feeling better. Love the gifts you sent to Debby!! Those slippers..I bet you got you

    Hugs..Cindy from rick-Rack and Gingham

  5. I love yor Fall decorations. You did a great job even though you were sick. I sure hope you'll be feeling better soon. It's no fun when mom's sick! She's the one having to take care of the rest of the family.

    Take care and be blessed,
    p.s. I'm having another Giveaway on my blog too!

  6. Thanks for stopping by this morning. God works in mysterious ways. I've been approached about leading the Moms in Touch at my son's elementary school and woke up with that on my mind this morning. So glad you shared.

  7. Hi and I think your fallen decorating looks wonderful! Nice happy family faces are good too! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. I love your fall decorations. So cute. And that photo of your husband and son and cat - great pic. :)

  9. Hey there, thanks for stopping by blog today. Im just stopping by the answer a the questions you asked me about a cricut.

    I have the original cricut and it works great for me. I got it on sale for 100 bucks at Joanns and that came with a cart and I think a cutting mat. It does the job and really I cant see myself spening upward of 400 on the bigger cricut expresssion. Plus I think everything comes down in price eventually so maybe one day.

    For vinyl I put all my settings at three on the cricut. I also use sure cuts a lot software which is approx 60 bucks. But this means no more buying ANY carts every. You will save a tonne of money in the long run.

    I hope that helps ya. If ya have any more ques feel free to contact me.
