Decorating in the fall is my favorite time, I just love these colors. This year I got out the Autumn inspired projects, and used them to decorate. Did you know that all the patterns I do for the Autumn Jubilee events remain free on my blog forever? I’ll show you a few of those in a moment. First, though, since the color outside this year is a bit dull, I put my Scrap Dance Two Step quilt on the bench with a little pumpkin as a welcome. I didn’t leave it there for long as I didn’t want the quilt to get dirty, but I loved the way it looked in the early morning light.
I put up a Harvest Wreath next to the door.
The Pumpkin Star quilt was fun to make, and looks nice at the foot of the guest bed. This was the Autumn Jubilee quilt along in 2018, and the pattern is still on the blog. The quilt is for sale, click here for details. And see my other Sample Sale items, still available by using the pull down menu at the top of the page.
On the cookbook shelf, I place several items with a Thanksgiving theme. A turkey sits on cookbooks of hearty meals, and a Thanksgiving cookbook (Williams Sonoma Thanksgiving Entertaining) is on the stand. Under the candlesticks is my Miniature Mariner’s Compass.
From 2016, my Pumpkin and Leaf table topper is easy and quick. This year it graces a side table between the library chairs.
Another ceramic turkey sits on a Wool Work Penny Rug, alongside the little lamp with the re-covered shade from Autumn Jubilee last month.
This miniature was the Pumpkin Wall Hanging wool work project from 2018. On the wall behind is my Maple Star table topper I did for Moda Bake Shop.
In the kitchen, my Maple Leaf Table Runner covers the pie safe.
A matching one is on another little side table.
On side tables are more ceramic turkeys. I have quite a collection, more than anyone needs, so I donated some of them this year.
This turkey is the oldest and most special. It is a candle that my mother bought probably in the late 1950s. It came out every year during my childhood and it came to live with me when I got married.
Do you have some special autumn or Thanksgiving decorating items from year’s past?
