Winners and sharing:

Happy Friday Blog Friends!

Brrrr….it’s cold! Got up this morning and the temp out side was 43 degrees! What happen to fall? It’s feeling more like winter.

Before I announce the winner’s of my giveaway, I’d like to share some random pics of my fall decorating. I don’t do a lot, but thought I’d share.

sharing & winner 010

Stairway to the front porch.  We built a fence rail across the opening so the fur babies could go out and enjoy the porch with us. I grew the pumpkins in my garden and purchased the wood pumpkin with crow from a local shop this year.

Wood ghosts~ made these 3 yrs ago for the yard. I enjoy seeing them in the yard each year.

This isn’t fall but it is my favorite in the yard! I made this bird house a few years ago and used old rusty tin for the roof ~ it’s now weathered to perfection!

My favorite pumpkins~ sitting on my Hoosier in the kitchen.

sharing & winner 004

Top of the Hoosier~ see the metal pumpkin and the sunflower head drying in front. Just hope the mice don’t find it! Yep, this old farm house get mice this time of year and I hate it, but that’s a downfall with old homes.

And these girls just had to get in the post! lol. I made them this week using a pattern by Sweet Meadows Farm. I think they turned out just precious! So much personality!
