Last of the Pumpkins

Yesterday after the kids got off the school bus they decided 
it was time for pumpkin torture.
(stems and pumpkin pieces all over the front yard)
I saved the last of them and brought them safely inside...
Some are fake and some are real here.
They add some festive Thanksgiving color.
I switched furniture around in here.
I don't usually place my sofa diagonal but it feels good in this small space.
I just found that little bench at TJ Maxx for $50.
I am hosting Thanksgiving for a few people...I am excited.
So, it's a good thing there are a few last little pumpkins to help welcome our guests.
I am ready to say good-bye to fall decor all together, though.
I guess my kids are, too.
(I can't get a good picture for anything out of my point and shoot camera - grrr)

New Sofa Slipcover

I finally got a new slip cover for my huge "Bertha" sofa.
Remember this sofa with the PB white drop cloth cover? The white was fine for the living room. Nobody really spent time in here except me.

An Alternative to Expensive Topiaries

Topiaries are one of my favorite plant styles.
Keeping a real one alive has been a huge challenge for me.
The good looking "fake" or preserved topiary plants can be very "pricey".
So here is my alternative to a similar look...naturally.

Aging Metal

A few weeks ago I ordered some brass darkening solution
for my shiny brass door knobs.
It didn't work on my door handles because they were sealed with lacquer.
