Winter is Coming

Autumn Arrangement
Here's a last peek at autumn decorating. I usually put mums or pumpkins in my front porch urns, but tried something different this year and this arrangement held up very well all fall.
Fall Welcome
And then to add a little more color I filled an old wire laundry basket with little gourds and a festive mum. We didn't carve a jack o'lantern this year, so I was able to keep the pumpkin until Thanksgiving.
Snowman Ornie
We've had a mild fall. I walk every morning and most mornings only need a lighter jacket to stay warm, but I think we're in for a change this week. So I'm in the mood for Christmas and winter projects and really enjoyed making a bunch of these sweet, primitive guys. These are good sized ornaments at about 12" long, but I think they'd look good on a tree or wreath or would make a great package decoration for a primitive loving friend or relative. From a Robin Lousschen design.
