Natural fall mantle make-over

I don't know where the time goes but it's fall already!  So time to spice the place up with a little fall color and decor.  I always start with the mantle and spread out from there.  This year I thought I would stay with the white tones to enhance some of my ironstone collection using as many natural things as I could find.  We have a terrific pumpkin farm not too far away so as soon as they opened for the season, I was there!  White pumpkins and gourds, corn from our own farm, dry twigs from a dead fall in the woods, a few dried gourds that I grew years ago and some early bittersweet.  In full disclosure, the cotton stems are artificial.  I guess the Halloween decorations come next.  Enjoy!

September Santa

Another month -- another Santa!  This time he is the crossing guard for the children going back to school.  Great colors and so much fun to stitch.  As with all my others in this series, it is done on #14 Aida cloth in counted cross stitch.  One more to go next month and then you will have seen the entire collection.  Thanks for lookin'!
