First of all I would like to thank all of you who left me the kindest remarks on my blog about my house in Country Sampler, I enjoyed reading each one of them.  I have gotten lots of emails and also phone calls reagarding my fall handmades,  yes I even had a lady from Canada call me and wanted a pumpkin and fall doll, it was an amazing experience.  So I thought I would offer a few fall handmades to you on the first day of autumn, Sunday night at 7pm est, I will have a few items already to ship, my sister Lisa and her daughter Sandy have joined me in making a few items for your fall decorating.  Hope you can join us then.  I wanted to also share with you a little of my ongoing fall decorating, here is what I have gotten done so far, and I have a few new items, yes I have been shopping, all the shops around here have had their fall open houses, so I hope you enjoy my little taste of autumn dressing for my house. 
I love this new large, guess you would call it a trencher, it has make do repairs in it, I wanted something very large to display my ever growing pumpkin collection.  I also moved my mustard shelf into the dining room, yes I like to move things.

Here is a closer picture of it, I use to have it over my desk in the living room, but I bought a new larger cabinet to hang there, I will share it with you next time.


I just love this bowl rack, it hangs on the other side of my dining room.

This wall in my kitchen has changed some since the magazine shoot.  I love the baskets added to the rack, moved the bowl rack off my counter and added it on top of the piesafe.  I love the pumpkin man in the tin can, a Cinnamon Creek design, love her stuff.  I love the new shelf that I hung next to the pie safe, love the deep shelves, hard to find them.

Closer view, just love the primitive feel it gives my kitchen

One of Kimberlys designs,  from the Red Cupboard, love her pumpkin folk.

My favorite old find, very large bucket bench.

My favorite pumpkin doll that I had made from a Bittersweet Folkart pattern, she sits in my kitchen all year.  She was very popular when the magazine came out.

This narrow wall in the hall right off the kitchen is one of my favorite places to decorate.

Don't you just love the pumpkin head in the box, picked it up on one of my fall hunting trips.

Another small wall in my hall way.

I just love how this turned out, took the mustard shelf that was in my buttery area in the magazine and added it here in my hallway on top of a cabinet I have in there, it gets changed out with the seasons.

I had redone this area in my den, moved the cabinet out of the hallway and put it next to my couch, yes I move things about everytime I change with the seasons.

I think this is one of my favorite pumpkin dolls I have come across while shopping, decided I would put her in the den where I could see her.

Pumpkin man was found while I was in TN this time, yes I get around a lot, my poor hubby, he takes me several times a year to TN to see my friend Bonnie and of course shop.

My favorite corner of my den, this  cabinet gets changed out with every season, just love the old cabinet.

This cabinet sits in the corner, really hard to take good pictures.  Love the three pumpkins sitting in the corner with the light, one of Marie's designs at Prims by Olde Lady Morgan.

This Mama Pumpkin with her baby is one of my sisters designs, she will be up for sale on Sunday night at 7pm est. please join us then, I hope you have enjoyed some of my fall decorating, will have more to come soon.  Until Sunday night, Autumn Blessing to all of you.  Vicky
