Autumn decor

Would you like to see some photos of my autumn decor?  Yes?  Well read on.

In our foyer, this is just the start of our autumn decor.

I collect pumpkins, and they have to be all different.  How did my pumpkin collection start?  It was the one second from the left.  It was so different, it was unique and that is how I caught the bug.  I never intended to start a collection .... but  .... that is how it is.  The materials of each pumpkin is different.  Some are made out of styrofoam, a few from grape vines, one from leaves, and the tall one on the right is made out of birch bark.  All so different.


You just knew that there was going to be a pumpkin quilt somewhere along the way!  This quilt was finished this spring and it looks delightful on this wall hanging above the dresser that Debra gifted to me before we moved.   Yes, more pumpkins on the dresser, of course!  :o)
My quilt ladder with autumn quilts.
My leaf quilt in our dining room. 
More autumn quilts and more pumpkins in our dining room!
Another view of quilts and pumpkins.
More pumpkins hiding in a wicker duck basket.  Different, eh!
A needlepoint that my Mom made years ago showing autumn colours.
An oil painting that I did over 35 yrs. ago. 
There you have it .... this is what autumn looks like in our home.  I hope you enjoyed it!

Have a great day!

I came over from Sweet-P. That large Autumn sky quilt at the top of your blog is BEAUTIFUL!!! It made me stop and just drink it in. The colors are so lovely, and the leaves are so detailed. It reminds me of the autumns we enjoyed in New Hampshire. Thank you!
(imagine very small letters here-would it be for sale?)

This is a beautiful post to wake up to and enjoy over coffee. You have a lovely home and fantastic taste! An oil painting, too. I have to check my memory banks to see if I knew you had this talent in you back pocket. I want to think I did. :) That needlepoint your Mom did is spectacular with all those tiny stitches. Oh… Pumpkin Quilt perfect.

Love the way you use your quilts to decorate. Basically why I make mine. I really love your pumpkin with all the different pumpkins, was that a pattern you purchased?

The leaf quilt in the dining room is a beauty. So representative of fall.
