It’s Monday --- Early…. I’m not even going to dread going to work... the weekend was awesome. Chelsey came home. Don needed something picked up in Green Bay--- so we sacrificed ourselves for some shopping endeavors. We had so much fun. There was lunch out and small purchases but tons of ‘window’ shopping.

The weather was crummy, but we took turns driving and it wasn’t raining inside. I had all of my new kids in Sunday school yesterday and each one is cuter than the next. I’m a football junkie so Sunday afternoon the family watched the NFL games and we got Chelsey back on the road to school. This was a hard week to send her back. I guess it’s because we had so much fun.

I spent Sunday evening decorating with pumpkin quilts. My mind says I don’t need anymore more… but there are so many beautiful ones out there it’s so hard to resist.

Purchases… Bath and Body Works is a “must” stop on the shopping trip.
The Fall Pumpkins scents are my favorites. The wooden leaves are Dollar Tree purchases. I removed all the raffia and changed it to Grosgrain ribbon.

There is a consignment shop that is always a favorite stop in Appleton.
The painted tea-dyed towel I couldn’t resist.

My last purchase was the pumpkin sign.
The photo doesn’t do it justice. There are black crows sitting on top of it.

The last couple of photos are just fall corners in my house.
The quilts have all been shared in prior years, but pulling out old quilts is like visiting an old friend. Don made the quilt ladder for me for my birthday.
This is the first Fall I’ve had it to decorate. I do have my eyes open for two new projects.
I want to paint an old chair black and one red. I love quilts thrown over old chairs. And half of the fun of getting the chair is searching for it.

I have plans for quilting tonight…. Maybe pictures tomorrow….

I have never seen a quilt ladder, love it! Being married into a long line of carpenters, I bet I could find an old wooden ladder to use as a quilt rack, thanks for the idea!

Hello, I am new to your blog and just love to read it. Your fall decorations are beautiful. I see you are in the U.P. (I live in Rochester Hills MI) SO were you happy for Green Bay winning or sad for the Lions?!

Thanks for sharing your fall-y decorations with us. Your home looks beautiful!
I'm glad you got to share a great weekend with your family. Those are the best! Even at 37 years old I sometimes have to drop everything to go home and have a weekend home with my mommy.

Just love your quilts. I sure enjoyed my autumn tour.

I love quilts on chairs. I do believe I have one in every room!

And you can never have enough quilted pumpkins at autumn time.
