I usually wait until September 1st to start bringing out my Autumn decor. I love Fall. Adore Fall. It is my favorite season. And where I live, we don't get much of it, so I sort of have to create the atmosphere a bit. I haven't gotten any of my bins down from the rafters, but I could not resist putting a few things out the other day.
I made this fabric basket a few years ago from an online TUTE. I love the Fall colors.
I saw these pillows at Kohl's several weeks ago, but resisted. Well, I was in there the other day and they were the only two left like them, and they were 60% off. I bought them, and love the way they look on our family room sofa. The colors are so warm and rich. The reds in the corner were two I have had a long time. They are down and so comfy. The oblong green is Mr. G's favorite pillow for night time telly. He hates having all of those pillows on the sofa. But I love them!
Do you like coffee? Me too. I love the Donut House coffee. I found this at fresh & easy the other day, and it is every bit as good as Dunkin' Donuts brand coffee, and about 1/4 of the price! SO yummy. I make a large pot every morning, and use the rest for iced mocha coffees during the day.
I found these pretty bamboo rooster placemats at Ross. Love them. I took the leaves out of my kitchen table and I am loving it as a small round for now.
I dug out my darling little Train Case from the closet a few weeks ago and have been using it to tote my yarn for my small knitting and crochet projects. I had forgotten all about this little beauty, and I love it!
Put out a Fall runner I made many years ago when I had first begun to quilt. It is very beginner, and clearly I have come a long way with my sewing skills, but I still love the colors on it.
Those are coffee beans around my candle. I like to use beans as a base for things like that, and it smells soooo good too.
Several weeks ago I had seen this cute little cotton hot pad over on
Pink Stitches blog. She has a great blog with lots of creative ideas for sewing and crochet and such. I bookmarked the pattern to do later. Yesterday afternoon I sat down and made one. Mine is a little wonky, but I still love the pattern. I will do my next one more carefully and try to make the petals fold down more evenly.
Looking at is from the above side, you get that pinwheel look to it. The other side is slightly different looking.
These were fun to make. I am thinking of doing them up in different colors and tucking them into my neighbors holiday gift baskets this year.
Off to take little N to school. Try to stay cool and hydrated today. We are looking at a high of 106 in my neck of the woods.
Kinda wishin' I was " Knee Deep In The Water Somewhere"; )
Over and Out.
