I love pumpkins...real ones, fake ones, and ones that are made into yummy treats! Last year I covered some of those orange fake pumpkins with book pages then made the vines and leaves. I was really happy how they looked. So out they came this year!
This is my tablescape...I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest or a Blog. I am sorry I can't remember where but I am very thankful for the idea! I was also inspired to go with a black and white theme.
So off I went to Billings (two hour drive to go to a Hobby Lobby, Micheal's, or Jo-Ann. But well worth it!) I found some cute black and white fabric in fat quarters. Plus with some scrape fabric I had I started sewing. I have two different sizes of little pumpkins scattered through out my home.
I added a white, fabric pumpkin here and there.
I am thinking that I will be changing the ribbons to orange ones for Halloween.
Our family room
This little pumpkin looks so good with the barn wood.
A bowl full of autumn goodies.
On top of our piano...
And my black crows have found nice place to roost.
It is so great to be back! Thanks to a friend that fixed the problem!! So now to catch up... This is a little project that I wanted to share just before I couldn't download any pictures.
It is one of the items off "My to do list" on Pinterest.
Supplies needed are a piece of wood, I was lucky enough
to have someone give me some barn wood.
These metal rings, I believe Butter called them
hose clamps. Again I was lucky because he had some in
his work shop. Wide mouth, pint size canning jars.
I always extras of them. Little screws and a screwdriver.
A little math was involved, too.
It was easy enough to put together.
Measure the were you want the rings and jars to be placed.
Mark it, I also started a little hole in the rings with a nail and hammer. My first try at just using a screw didn't work as well as I wanted so I made a little hole in each ring. I also wanted the part that tightens the ring in the front so that it would be easier to do as I add the canning jars.
Use a screwdriver to tighten the rings to the jars.
It is hanging in my family room. Right now I have
dried roses petals in each one with a small white candle
I am sorry to say that I still cannot download any pictures. So I am going to have to get someone that knows more than me, which shouldn't be too hard since I know nothing of computers; except to blog and now I can't even figure that out! You can keep track of things going on here at the Falling Feather Farm on my Instagram @thefallingfeatherfarm. I am finally back to semi-normal...it has been a couple of hard years... and I have so many plans for our farm. Sharing them on this blog was one of them so I am dreaded the thought that I will not be able to fix the problem and have to stop my blog. Take Care and have a great weekend!
