Fabric pumpkins with my old chippy white door...

I finally brought out some of my fall decorations...for some reason I'm not in the 'autumn' mood. 
Maybe it's because of what is to come...our long cold winter...


Many phases of my pumpkin making since the early 80's with the larger plain orange pumpkin to the more current wool pumpkins...there's more but I can't find them all...


An old crow that is noise activated...it flaps it's wings, eyes flash red and makes a 'scarry' noise...he's always out at this time of year...until he drives us crazy and then gets shut off...


Finally....I got Mr. Wild to bring in my chippy white door!
This wall is still slowly coming together. Once the snow flies I'll be able to get him to hang an old architectural piece or two on the wall and there is one more door that needs to be brought in.
Maybe by next week I'll be more ambitious with the fall decor....

Thanks for stopping!

I love your fabric pumpkins and your chippy door too! I'd love to get my hands on one of those crows - I've never seen one before. I think my grandkids would love it! Visiting from WUW. Take care.

Hi Faye, I came over from Karen's at The Vintage Bag Lady....love your little trailer...looks like she is is great shape. If you go back a few posts on my blog you will see pics of my 1954 Bellwood my husband and I just renovated. These little campers are so much fun...like you I want to use mine for a little portable store...go to flea markets...travel the USA..buy...sell...and pull of to the side of the road when I am ready to take a nap!..have fun with it!

Cheers, Andrea

Your "pumpkins" are terrific! That is another thing I have been trying to get around to! And, like you, I never seem to find what I'm looking for.

So nice of Mr. Wild to bring in your chippy door!
