I love the change of seasons inside too!

As you all know by now I love Fall! I spent the day inside yesterday with Cameron and Henry. Cameron still had a slight fever so he was my sidekick. I spent the morning organizing the front half of the storage room in the basement, I came across the Fall tote. Cameron and I decided that it was time for a change of seasons inside.

Thanks to Heather at for the inspiration of the glitter pumpkins and use of pine cones. I sprayed the pumpkins with aerosol adhesive and used glitter. The pine cones were from a wreath that I got from the Harold's liquidation sale. We all have bits and pieces of the Harold's props in our possession. This wreath was all pine cones and I have decided to re use it for many projects.

We don't have a fireplace anymore so our piano acts in its place for my mantle. I simply turned over my quilted table runner that GiGi made for us to get an off white look. This was actually intended for Junior Mint to be used as a changing pad but it was so pretty I just couldn't do it.

Sorry about the glare off of the picture, I can't figure out how to turn the flash off of the camera. Maybe when Grampie comes in November he can show me. (I am not complaining Dad I love our hand me downs from you! )
