Autumn has come here!! Both inside and out!!

Hello again all!!!!
First of all I would like to thank everyone for there wonderful comments!!!
It is soooooo awesome to see them!! You all light up my day!!! :D

Well, I promised in my last post that I would tell you about my great Mennonite yard sale finds...
as it turns out... all I found was a new barely used phone for my daughter... $3. and lots of food... which didn't last very long!! I found some pepperoni bread!! (which we love to use for making sandwiches!! YUMMY) some decorated cookies which grands ate!! (me too!!) some cinnamon rolls which I am going to HAVE to have the recipe for... she made them with cinnamon in the dough too!! and the icing had cinnamon in it too!!! They melted in my mouth was the best part!!!
Sorry nothing else to tell about. I had fun visiting with the ladies!!! Still looking forward to their one in spring thou!!! I also found some material... but I can't show you a pic of it... because that is what I am going to use for making Sue's stocking out of!! (She will get to show you that!!)

So instead I will show you pics of my house decorated for autumn and Halloween...
so here goes!!
I hope you enjoy...
We will start just inside my front door...
with the shelves...
one side is done with glass stuff..

the other is done with my crocks... which I love!!!
My TV entertainment center sets between these
with a large picture frame window!!
(but you will see those in a minute)


Here is the set of shelves that sit on top of an old dresser...
which became my hutch...
(show you a pic of all of that when I finish the paint job later)
Now were are going to just jump around the house...
I kinda loaded the pics in this order so.. here goes...
the bathroom plant...
the back door wreath
the wall in the living room... where the shelves are!!!
(you will notice my 400 mile yard sale find!!)
which btw is my new fav saying!!! and I am trying to live by that!!

the pie safe decor
(and the rose pic is hiding the ac in the wall!!!)


the living room wall opposite the fav saying wall...
the decor on shelf behind couch closer view

the decor on top of cabinet beside the dining table...
it holds all of my table clothes...
the top of my chest...
the other pic frame needs to say something...
I need help!!!
and Thank you Sue for the idea for the one!!!

small table top between rocker and couch...
and that does it for the inside of the house for now....
So now we will move to the outside!!
Please forgive some of the clutter on the porch!!!!
here is my
version of a fall tree... beside the pumpkin!!!
(my yard doesn't have any trees in it that have the wonderful
fall colors...they are cedar trees!!! So I made my own!!!)
I just went to the trees in the timber... cut a branch...
used the silk leaves from three different autumn bunches...
put the leaves onto the ends of the smaller branches...
and Wallaaaaaaah!!!
Now I can sit on my porch... and enjoy fall!! :D

Here is the front porch with my jack-o-lanterns lit.
Pic was taken at night... but forgot to turn off flash lolol.

Here is some of my spider webs...

and here is some more...
with a closer look of my tree!

I hope you have enjoyed the tour of my house!!
Someday soon I am hoping to convince hubby
to let me paint the walls
of the living room!!
BUT that is what he liked the most
about the house when he bought it!!!
(before I was in the picture!!!)
But that is a story of another day!!

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!
Remember to Live well, Laugh often,
and to LOVE much!!

I enjoyed your tour and absolutely LOVE your crocks. I only have two (very small) ones. If you find them around here they are so expensive but I am still going to find me some bigger ones like yours one day. I can't believe you took the time to put the fall leaves on the branches...looks real. You have more patience that me. I can't believe your petunias are still blooming...you have a green thumb for sure. I'm working on your goodies too.

Enjoyed your fall pictures.
I have got to know what the secret is to keeping those deer away. I couldn't find your email anywhere
