Saw the graduated book stacking in the latest Country Home Mag...

Gave that a try...

They topped theirs off with a stuffed chicken!..who stuffs those?

I opted for a pearlized pumpkin...

Painted and crackeled the leaves...
added ribbons to the pumpkie...

Always a challenge to Fallerize in whites and pastels...

I figure most anything can be painted...

Just a little of what's been keeping my hands and head busy.



  1. Hi Kathy! I love love your decor! It is so peaceful looking. I could just sit there and meditate:) Just beautiful, my friend.

  2. Your home is just beautiful. You have done such a nice job of tasefully layering your treasures so the observer can apprciate every little detail.

    I went on the hunt yesterday for your muffin pans but came up empty handed...We don't have a large city near by. Do you mind me asking where you found them? I will be going down to Portland, Oregon next week so perhaps I will find them there.

  3. Good morning Miss Kathy, boy oh boy...have I been missing you...I really like the idea of the stacked books...what a great idea.
    Course, knowing me, I'd want the one on the bottom, and or I would be right down there with them all the time...LoL
    I am at a plateau as far as followers or one sings me love songs, and no one sends me flowers anymore...
    I love your blog and your wonderful warm style.
    go paint somethin...

  4. I love the light and airy feel of your home. Your decor is wonderful. Great fall vignettes and all so pretty in the cream tones. Hugs, Marty

  5. Well you do a great job to add 'fall' to your decor in the whites. Beautiful!

  6. It's all very pretty my Dear friend..I can't do orange in my house either ha ha!! Love the little hat shade idea girl too cute...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  7. G'morn sweet Kathy ~ I so love your write today. So crisp, elegant & inviting ... the seasonal touches are wonderful!

    Hope you both are doing well. Often think of you & prayers are still lifting.
    G'morn Jana ~ This is my first visit, so I was poking around. Yes, you are truly blessed & are exactly where God wanted you to be for this blessed child to survive.

    May all his birthdays be moments of joy & happiness as you celebrate.

    Have a beautiful weekend.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  14. Hi Kathy -- LOVE the white pumpkins, and also the EEEK on the fireplace. (From your other post today -- where I could not comment -- no comment box!) Cute, and so different but distinctly FALL.

  15. Hi Kathy...It is hard to do Fall in whites and pastels, isn't it? I think you are doing a great job, though!~Hugs, Patti

  16. I have the same problem...most of my home is pastel. I am loving the white pumpkins!

    I like the stack of books, it looks original and creative!


  17. Sherri...I picked up the muffin pan in Michaels...a few weeks back.
    I did see a simular one in Jo Fabrics too.
    Good Luck.
