Saturday...

Well, the weatherman got it right this morning.... Raining and cold... well 52 degrees.... Just kind of makes you hug your coffee mug closer. Here's my mantle this season...
That's a real pumpkin. I found it along a road side stand.... My pumpkins didn't make this year.
It looked painted.
And the other side is a bouquet-- compliments of Mother Nature.
Plans for the weekend---knock out the chores-- quilt, a baby shower, football, get ready for Eric.

pretty fall decorations.
I have a few pumpkins growing which I hope will turn orange before our first frost.

Love the simplicity of your decorated mantle! Is that bittersweet I see gracing the frame? I have childhood memories of car rides on back roads looking for bittersweets... it's hard to find in Iowa!
