Autumn Flower Jars with Pumpkins

Hello Friends!
It's October, fall for sure. How did that happen? We are not far off from Christmas
at this point. Now if only the weather would cool down enough here to feel like fall.
While shopping Marshalls last week I bought two amber colored jars with fleur de lis tops.
I wasn't sure what to do with them or where to display them but I knew they were "fallish".
I believe they were $19.99 and $14.99 a piece. I filled them with a box of $5.99 pumpkins.
Michaels was my next stop and I added plaid ribbon and a few flower embellishments.
That was it! That is the extent of my craftiness. I am definitely pleased with how they came
out though. I have them in the kichen on my little red table next to the rooster arrangement. 
Take a look!


It's Chestnut's 9th birthday this month. We don't know the exact date so
he will get extra treats all month long. Here he is keeping watch on the lizards.
The mantle got a simple fall touch with a $5.99 arrangement and a $3.99 bird.
The sage green carved pumpkin was $9.99 and all of it came from Marshalls.
I'm decorating the front porch next and that will be all the fall stuff I need here.
Have a wonderful week!
