More Fall Decorating on the Shelf

I took a trip to Michael's last weekend
to add some fall colors to the tops
of my bookcases in the sitting room.

I found a leaf garland and a couple bunches of white daisies to help break up all the darker colors.
I believe the pillow used to belong to my Grandma K.

 I love the gilded butterflies in fall colors!
The frame and picture are awaiting
a fresh coat of white.
But until then, they are perfect fall accents!

In my last post I had a gold teapot on this shelf.
But it has found a new spot in my kitchen.
And a little orange birdcage has taken it's place!
($1 bin at Michael's!  SCORE!)

 And replaced the candles with pumpkin scented ones.



A little more fall colors than what it started out being
but I'm happy with the results!

And here is where my gold teapot ended up:
 In my tea shop!
I wish!
It's really my kitchen...
 That little wire pumpkin is a place card holder!

 This chicken teapot belonged to my Grandma K.
I bring it out every fall!

I found this sign at a local furniture store
several years ago!
A bargin at only $40!

This weekend is our church's yearly fundraiser
at Fall Fest in beautiful Door County, WI!
We will be selling our famous,
authentic Greek Gyros!
Mmmmmmmmm!!!!
Looks like the weather will be perfect
so there should be plenty of hungry people there!
Looking forward to a weekend of
work and play with my church family!
It is always such a good time of fun & fellowship!
Maybe I will have some pictures to share when I return on Monday.

Until then, I hope you all will have time to enjoy the beauty of God's creation this weekend!

Hugs!
Lori
