Welcome Autumn, Home Decor


I found this yardage and most of these decorations at the thrift store. I got the yardage for $3. and it was a perfect length to make a table cloth out off. After washing and pressing it just hemmed the ends. It has sweet little sayings on it. I LOVE WORDS OF LIFE!

The cute little leave, gourds and beaded wire were all in a bag for $1.99! They are just perfect

I hope you can see how cute these candle holders are. $1.99 each. I think I need to repaint them eventually. I need to set them on something to make them stand out better.

See the detail of the beads, as you know I love , Did I tell ya I LOVE BEADS! :) This would be such an easy technique to do just thread a ton of beads on a wire the twist every so often! To Cool! They shine so pretty.

I had the topiary and the candles. There are a few things up in the attic that I have made over the years. With Thanksgiving held here at the "big house" This will be changing this out a few times. I just can't get in the attic today so...I use what I can :)

Hi Donetta,
I love the decor. I happened to come across some maple leaves I picked up from a fall visit to my Mom in Ontario and had an itch to do something with them.
Also, thanks for your kind, encouraging words on my blog!!

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
