I moved all of my jam to my little white cart and put it in baskets..this weekend I am putting up 25 pounds of nectarine my saturday is pretty much filled..not sure where it all will go..
Do you see something wrong with this picture? if not you will below in pics to follow...

my little autumn witch from Kentucky primitives..she is an original..I love her..
my first punch needle item..a kitty jumping over a pumpkin on a little dustpan..

I embroidered this spooky pumpkin scarecrow and framed him..I love the big full moon behind him..

I put up this quilt that I had made years ago and I was going to sell it..but it has the perfect fall colors and I do love this quilt..I have matching curtains..but not putting them up..also have pillow shams..but not putting them up either..I took the pillows that were down on the chaise and put them here..they match fairly well.:)
this gal stitched free hand on her machine flowers and designs on every square including some cat paws too..she hand dyed all the fabric..the other side is big squares of the colors..and I can fold down the top and it has a Lip if you will of the colors in retangles..she did a wonderful job on this...:)
my little stove all lit up for those chilly autumn nights..this is in our bedroom.;)
it casts a warm glow.;)
and we are back to the dining room again..are you heads spinning yet? I changed out the curtains for my fall ones..before...

I love the warm glow they cast in the morning..
I embroidered these on the front..

I had to go to the dentist yesterday to get my teeth cleaned..easiest cleaning sonicare is working magic on my has improved so much because I started using it..the gal that cleans them was amazed...She is my regular gal and I have been seeing her for years and she was if you don't have one..get one..worth the investment..okay so then I went over to walmart to get some canning jars for my big day tomorrow and came across some dishes..we are in need of new dishes..these were $2.00 I got the fall colors..they will coordinate nicely with my home..they are in the dishwasher getting cleaned...can't wait to use them.;)

  12. Gina,
    Congrats on your weight loss GF! I've started some fall decorating too.....both at my Cape Cod home and here! It's my favorite thyme of year!You have been real busy decorating! Love it!


  13. Girlfriend I have never seen so many pretty fall items in one place in all my blogging days. hahaha
    Great tour of your home and love those curtains. They look like the material I have been wanting to purchase for my kitchen.
    Where oh where do you store all your pretties when not using them.
    Wish it were cool enough here to think of fall. We are still in the triple digets with wildfires from no rain. Scares me to think how easy these fires are burning so many homes and land here.
    Sorry did not mean to change the subject.
    Your post is great as always

  14. The whole house is looking so good! Very Fall-ish! I, too, would love the glow of the curtains in the morning time. Really nice quilt as well. You've been pretty busy!

  15. Gina, Love the fall touches! It took me a minute to see the problem! I REALLY need some glasses~ SHH!
    My hubby has one of those Sonic care~ he likes it. They are expensive, you can get two at Costco, but we have been waiting to see if they have a coupon. We are supposed to cool down next week. I am ready~ must be hormones!
    Have a great weekend!

  16. Hi Gina, love all your fall displays.
