Colors of Fall

A few touches of Fall around my home.
White pumpkins seem to work better in my living room.
Some oversize acorns - need to work on this some more.

I got one real pumpkin and a pot of mums to sit outside by the door, when family was here this last week. Want to get more, but the temps are pretty warm again, so was not sure how long they would last.
Click picture to enlarge.

In case anyone wondered what this was in the mosaic. Some of you may remember the grab bag of jewelery I bought at the flea market a couple of weeks ago . This vintage bracelet was in the bag and it definitely is one of the colors of Fall.
I finally got around to going thru the rest of the things in the bag and found a couple more surprises, and did a little research. Will do a different post on that, as I need to take a couple of pictures.

I am linking to Mary @ "Mosaic Monday" http://dearlittleredhouse.blogspot.com/

Hope your weather is as nice where you are as it is here now. However, I think we need to start doing a rain dance, as things are a little to "crispy" around here.

Have a great week!

It is beautiful but warm here in Texas. I think back home in Georgia it's pretty warm also. I didn't buy any real pumpkins yet, after I get back home I will. Love your decorations!

I'm doing a rain dance, too. At least the temps are reasonable .... high 80s instead of 90's and lows in the morn around 70. Lovely fall vignettes. Well done!

I love the white pumpkins in our decor too. Last Saturday was our last farmers' market and there were lots of pumpkins. I brought some home and hope they survive in our "heat wave".

Best,
Bonnie

White pumpkins look great in your kitchen. I love your little vignettes too....I may have to get a white pumpkin or two....I just hope I do not get the urge to paint it:)
