Fall Crafting

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. I spent a good chunk of time in my craft room finishing a few things and beginning additional projects, which made me very happy.
The cooler weather also inspired me to begin pulling out my fall decor. Nothing too fancy, but I like to keep something seasonal in the old knife box.
I like the way the old brown crocks look against the dark red of the dining room walls and a little orange makes a nice contrast.

The little pumpkin witch is from one of the first swaps I ever did. She is so unique and taking her out of the box always brings back happy memories and warm feelings.

So many of the little things I put out for fall remind me of the person who made them and those memories are the best part of fall decorating for me.

I have many of the same attachments with all of my seasonal decorations - I remember who gave them to me, or the fun times I had with whoever I was with when I happened to acquire them. Great decorations - but, oh, Roberta - those sweet doings in that first photo are amazing...those kitty witches are just precious! And the little jol pouches - and the stitcheries - especially the crow!!...OH MY!! A fall junky's heaven!! Love these!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
