I have decided to link up this morning with one of my VERY favorite blogging friends ~ Jennifer @ Trading Ashes for Beauty ~  and her "Friday with Friends" party.  She has asked us to share our Fall decorations be they indoors or out.  I've only added one new goodie this year, a gift from my GOOD friend Cindy, but you will see that I have MANY little treasures I have been collecting over the years.  I did have to find some new places for things this year, what with the move and all, but I it was really pretty easy.  I LOVE Fall.  The colors are some of my favorites and really kind of work in with my year round decor.  They will all stay put until the Christmas boxes come out.  Can it be that it is already mid Oct.??  ENJOY  And soo many thanks to Jennifer for hosting this fun event.  You can find her and the others who are participating HERE.

I got this beautiful Fall wreath years ago at Michael's.  I love it.  My scarecrow got rained on a bit the other day, haha, but he seems to have survived just fine...Come on in

This is the first thing you see as you walk in the front door.  Looks like I need some new candles, haha, these are short and bent, but you get the idea.

A closer look at the cross my son James and his family gave me last year for my birthday..I LOVE it!

The top of my piano hold these little fall angels I have had for years

The window sill in front of my kitchen sink

A close up of these cuties

This little guy sits perfectly in the corner...

Some Fall scented candles are a must of course

Kitchen table centerpiece...I have had this soo long don't remember when or where I got it.  I change the candle up of course.  Looks like this one is kind of sad too, haha

Family room coffe table.  The stuffed pumpkin is my new item that my life long (since we were 9 years old) girlfriend gave me this week for my birthday when we met for lunch.  LOVE it and her!

How darling is this??  Perfect colors too.

This is the centerpiece that sits on my table year round and I just add these Fall leaves etc. in.  I got all of these last year from my friend Sue @ Where Memories are Made.  I LOVE them.  The little scarecrow is adorable!

This pic was in one of my latest posts, but I couldn't resist adding it again.  This is the new buffet in my kitching eating area that we bought when we bought this home.  I not only love it, but it stores some extra items that did not fit in my kitchen anymore.  I added the glass pumpkin last year, (a real find) and my pilgrim couple that I have had for years.  You can see by the dwindling jar of corn candy that it is one of my favorites.  I really better not fill it up again, haha

This just sums it all up doesn't it?

 This has been soo much fun to put together.  But it has also made me think and dwell a bit on the many blessings that have been mine through this last year.  I have soo much to be thankful for.  I have said it many times before but I am sure it can be repeated...Thanksgiving is just my favorite holiday of all.  The gathering of family and friends, the yummy food and delicious smells, Christmas just around the corner, and hearts that are full of gratitude for all we have been soo blessed with.  This verse here is one of my many, many favorites, so I will close this post with it.  Hope you all have a wonderful week-end and enjoy this gorgeous Fall season that He has given to us.

Psalm 35:27  Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, "Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant."


  1. Beautiful decorations! I don't do a lot of seasonal changes in my decor but I always enjoy seeing what others are doing.

  2. Well you have given me the cast boy and I will go get out the boxes...he has been asking for days. I will carry him to the store for some hay and he can set beside me and help!
    Everything looks great...and your first Thanksgiving in your new home!!

    Do you play the piano? And the Gone with the Wind plate...awesome.

    He is calling from his bed...must go...blessings

  3. Oh such pretties!!! I love the stuffed pumpkin!!! And I love the triangle space behind your kitchen sink to display things. The cross is oh so pretty. And I too have weakness for candy corn. The glass pumpkin jar is LOW!!! And it is all me!!! Happy Fall, and happy day!!

  4. Sooo inviting...Sooo cozy...Sooo warm! Thank you for sharing your lovely treasures...I love the last pic because of its reminder!!!

    Have a great weekend sister Debbie and may His strength always be yours. God bless.

  5. Hi Debbie,
    Your home looks beautiful. Loved all your vignettes and your neat signs.
    that is a very pretty sewn pumpkin.
    Loved the way your kitchen area looks too. What a great job!!
    Happy Fall!!
    Blessings for a nice weekend,

  6. Hi sweetie, This is the third time I've tried to leave a comment but our 'puters eat them up. I love all of your autumn decor-in fact it is good we don't live next door to each other cause some might go missing-lol.
    You bless me so much and your blog is such an encouragement-thank you my friend.
    Hugs, Noreen

  7. Your home is beautiful! I love the fall decorations and how you add such a special touch to so many areas of the home. Thank you for inviting us in to take a peek!

  8. Hi Debbie,
    I just love everything that you have done for fall, I especially love the decorations at your sink. I would love to have a place like that where I could put scenes at. You did a beautiful job.
    The angels scenes on the piano, I love, and I also love the Gone With The Wind pictures above it too!!
    I can tell you put a lot of love and care in placing everything.
    I see that another thing we have in common is that we like the same colors, what a shame we live so far away from each other. We would have the most fun, sharing ideas, but most of all fellowshipping together.
    Thanks for mentioning me on your blog.

    I am just now beginning to slow down from summer, and hope to be more of a faithful blogger.

    Much hugs,

  9. Debbie - your new home is just so lovely...and looks so homey and comfortable - as if you have lived there for years...not months! Everything is lovely and I especially love that shelf area above the kitchen sink - what a nice extra area! I have a window - which I love! - and am tickled with a window ledge...goodnes, how excited would I be with a whole shelf!!

    I hope tomorrow starts off a great week for you - and for your mother:) Still remembering her in prayer - indeed, spending Thanksgiving with her will be reason enough to celebrate this year:) (Although, I know this is MUCH more!!)

    Hugs, friend:)

  10. I don't decorate for fall other than front door wreaths, but I admire those of you who do.

    Fall is my favorite, so it's fun to hop around and look at all the beautiful ways we celebrate the season.

    Enjoy your Monday. I'm out for a walk and some cleaning around the house before tomorrow's chemo treatment.


  11. Beautiful!!

    Blessings to you and yours!

  12. A decorator I am NOT and never will be but I SO much enjoyed looking at your beautifully fall decorated home! You are very talented!


  13. Your fall decorations are really pretty. I must say that I was surprised to see the "Give Thanks" on your husband's grandma gave me one of those sets just before she passed away, so it is a special treasure to me.

    I love your new stuffed pumpkin! What a precious, thoughtful gift! :)

  14. How beautiful. I came for a visit and thoroughly enjoyed several of your posts including this sweet one! I especially loved all your adorable Autumn and Fall pumpkin scarecrow and pilgrim table decorations! This is my favorite season and it is so fun to see fun new ideas. Have a blessed week and a blessed holiday season! :)


I am so glad that you would take the time to comment on my thoughts and feelings, it is such a blessing to me!
