Falling into Fall........



October has brought a definite chill to the air, putting me in a decorating mood. As you've come to know from visiting my blog, I love exploring new ideas for taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. Which I accomplish through the inspiration provided by visiting your lovely blogs.





Nothing says "FALL" like these...

PUMPKINS!





The versatility of pumpkins in any fall decor is endless.
I've only got one problem...





sometimes the pumpkins can start to look a little sad before the seasons end.
(Natalie Maynor's photo)





Violet Skiles

has the perfect solution!






Pumpkin Toppers


Flowers, leaves, pearls, frame
charm.....what more could you ask for?
Reusable, perhaps?

Yes they are!




Violet has a beautifully illustrated tutorial at
her blog for creating your own Pumpkin Topper. Please stroll on over for a visit. She's just as charming as her art!

The floral pumpkin toppers are perfect! I love pumpkins and the season is so long (from early September through October) that I end up buying way more pumpkins than I need.

Mimi Sue said...

I adore those pumpkin toppers. I've been thinking I might make a couple for my Thanksgiving table. You really should try to make it to Swiss Days just once. It's kind of unbelievable. Although people say it used to be even bigger and better. Do you have family up here? If you do it would be great to be able to stay with them. It's always on Labor Day weekend. Mimi

MyJourneyBack said...

Oh Sara I love the post with all the pumpkins. Thanks for sharing these fall images. I love the jar too.
Thanks for coming by to see me too. I am working on my Wordfilled Wednesday post. Come back tonight to see. It kind of goes with the flower.
Have a Blessed Day.

Charlene said...

Love the pumpkins. That one that is a little "worst for the wear" well, that's our concern this year. "Honey" bought a 160 pound pumpkin. He got it in the van & on the drive home he says"I wonder how I'm going to get it out of the van without the two little guys that loaded it?" My thought... that's no problem call your son. The problem... what about when that sucker has seen it's better days! YUCK! Not my problem. Hee Hee. I will post about your give away. I would love to win.

Charlene said...

OK I posted your give away. What are the dates for this? I didn't see it posted or maybe I missed it.

The Blonde Duck said...

I love the pumpkin toppers! How pretty!

Jennifer said...

Hello Sara, thank you for visiting my blog today... that pie you talked about that the little grandma makes sounds so good! Yum! Your Autumn post is beautiful, this is my very favorite time of year! Bisous... Julie Marie

Elizabeth G. said...

Hi!

I just found your blog and I really like it. Did you design your header? I love how it turned out. It's unique and kind of vintage-y. It's really original.

Have a great day!

Michelle said...

Hi Sara! What an awesome giveaway! I love all the pumpkin ideas...and definitely the table topper!!

About the Moscato..I say I think that's a definite yes to add to the Autumn punch! I don't see why not in fact, it sounds great!! Let me know how it turns out. :)


Oh and as far as the crisps go...they actually did not stay crispy..they were more "chewy". :)

xoxo

Ms. Bake-it said...

Sue said...

Hi Sara, Thanks so much for coming by to read my blog! I always like meeting new friends. Yes, those ugly roosters are a hoot! I am going to be doing a "Sisterhood of the Traveling Ugly Roosters," where they get shipped around for a month's visit. People can chronicle their adventures... LOL Wanna play?

I hope your leaf balls turn out okay. You could probably use the preserved waxed leaves. They won't deteriorate like real leaves will. So, keep me apprised of what you do.

I really don't know if anyone eats the buckeye nuts. I've never seen recipes using them, and no one has ever said they are even edible! I'll have to check it out. I just like to display them. There are several varieties out there- but I really don't know much about them except that I like their looks! *grin*
Sue

parTea lady said...

Your fall photos are beautiful. I've never seen pumpkin toppers, but I now want to make one. Thanks for the link. Please throw my name in the hat for your lovely Apothecary Spigot Jar giveaway. It looks so pretty filled with the pink liquid.

Hello Sarah! Thanks for stopping by Loveleigh Occasions. I'll have my party post up before too long. Thank you for all your kind comments about my blog. It's actually my second one. I started it a couple of weeks ago. I spent weeks preparing everything. It's mainly my party/holiday blog, my playground! My day to day blog is Loveleigh Treasures if you would care to see it, the link is on my profile page or my Occasions blog.
Feel free to use the hocus pocus graphic. I think I got her from the Graphics Fairy and I added the hocus pocus part, so you may want to credit the Fairy instead! I can't wait to see what you have planned for your new blog, it can be so addicting! Have a great night and I will visit again soon!

Love the pumpkin toppers. Aren't pumpkins just wonderful - to look at that is (yuk to eat) - and what a fantastic way to make them more wonderful.

The spigot giveaway is AWESOME! I can just imagine the lemonade or sangria that would be PERFECT in something like that.

Definitely gonna post that tag on my blog.

Have a fantastic weekend!
