I won't talk politics but we all have to admit we are glad this last election has come to an end- right?
On voting day I found these cookies at the bakery and couldn't resist!
I emptied most everything from the deck. The pumpkins were getting chewed on by the squirrels and chipmunks and they were showing signs of rotting.
The ones I left are artificial pumpkins but the plants are live. We still haven't had a killing frost!
We placed them by the trees at the edge of the woods for the critters.
They have already started to eat on them but I didn't take pics.
I know this is weird but we created this center arrangement to support the tarp since we get so much of a snow load.
Isn't this gorgeous! LOL…
We average 150" of snow each winter so we go to drastic measures.
This is our water fountain out back that is now covered and ready for winter. The park benches will get their own covers too.
I created a post about the topiary christmas trees I created out front of the garage as seen "here".
I was raided!
The bandits arrived during the night and made a little mess of things!
Dan is pretty sure the raccoons did this. These topiaries have about a 5 inch spike that does into the pot and they seemed pretty secure but a raccoon is a lot heavier than a squirrel. I'm glad we used a lot of tie wraps to hold the greenery on otherwise these would have been a mess!
I tweaked my plate rack and etagere with a Thanksgiving theme as seen "here"!
Then I pulled together a Thanksgiving tablescape in the kitchen as seen "here".
Have you noticed this year all the decorative items including dishes with an old red truck or ornaments this year? I will be using this kind of theme in the kitchen dining area this Christmas. I like my kitchen dining area to be kind of country cozy.
I picked up this truck (50% off at Michael's w/coupon). I intend to embellish it a bit. It's about 9" long.
The picture in the living room in the background that is resting against my table is going up on the wall above the tv. It's a numbered and signed print from Dan's sister who was part of that art show and book I posted about "here". She gave us the print earlier this year and then we had it framed. I wasn't even sure where it was going to go but I finally decided it would be nice above the tv.
I received a sales catalog from Pottery Barn and look at this ornament- I was surprised at the likeness it had to my little truck from Michael's.
Have a great weekend!
