A little more decor

Okay the Spiced Pumpkin candle motivated me to get the rest of my Fall decor out. This little arrangement sits on the bookcase right next to my stitching chair.

Did you notice that it is all sitting on my finished Speck quilt? This is in the perfect spot for me to admire for the whole Fall season. The large white container is a warmer that holds the Pumpkin Spice candle and the pumpkin house has a little battery tea light inside that flickers in the dark. (yes that is a tiny chicken in the doorway -LOL)

Here's picture of Speck in all its glory.

I just did a wavy line grid for the quilting and used a variegated thread. Quick and simple!

And my motivation held for me to decorate the top of the tv cabinet with my collection of mercury glass pumpkins - I LOVE mercury glass.

And this is the fireplace mantle. I've never done this asymmetrical arrangement before. I'm still not sure of it but I'll leave it like this for a day or two. The pumpkin quilt is a Sandy Gervais panel that I quilted. I love the polka dots on the pumpkin.

Now all that is left is to get some taller help (my sons) to hang my Fall quilts. I should be able to guilt them into it tomorrow or Sunday.

Have a great weekend!

  1. The quilts are beautiful but the mercury glass pumpkins are wonderful. I have some candle holders and some snowmen made out of mercury glass. Never have seen pumpkins but I am now on the hunt.

  2. Looks wonderful.
