Having a Ball Decorating for Fall!!

I know I've been away forever it seems,
 and I'm sure ya'll have probably forgotten about me,
....but I hope not :)
I really didn't mean to be gone for so long but I've been on a mission
for the past few months trying get things done around the house...
well mostly outdoors and in the yard.
We have a very large yard and have let the pruning go for much too long.
We managed to get a lot done over the summer
but still have more pruning and painting to do...
boo hoo!!  

I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone by,
and now it's already the end of October!  How did that happen??
We had a really nice summer here
and for once I really kinda hated to see it come to an end.
The weather still continues to be very pleasant but the mornings and evenings are definitely showing the cooler signs of Fall...
I'm lovin it!!

There's nothing like a change in the season to get me in the mood to decorate,
so I decided to take a break from working outdoors to have a little decorating fun!

I have several vignettes I've been playing with and today I'm gonna share my
Fall tablescape with you.
Hope you enjoy it!

Candlesticks make a great base for a cute cloche!

A little Lantana bouquet picked from my neighbors flowerbed
next to my driveway, ...shhhh ;) 
This glass pumpkin was a recent thriftin find... perfect for some Fall potpourri!
It didn't have a lid and I'm not sure if it was supposed to, but I thought it needed one and happened to have one that was a nice fit.
You may recognize some of these pretties I've used if followed my blog for long.
I still love them though, and like to mix them up for a bit of a different look.

Thank you for stopping by,
I always appreciate your visits!!
Also, thanks to those of you who didn't give up on me:)
You're the best!

Warmest wishes to you all, and Happy Fall!!

Welcome back. So nice you had such a great little break and it's always wonderful to get things done around the house.

Love your pretty tablescape. The cloches are fabulous, but you knew that I would pick up on that for sure. Beautiful colors, dishes and accessories. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Sherri, your fall vignettes are very pretty. I really love your lacy looking white pumpkin!

Welcome back,Sherri! We missed you but I'm glad you got things done around your house before winter sets in. Beautifully vibrant tablescape!I love the Lantana in that white pitcher... looks so striking! The pumpkins make such lovely accents throughout your table and the candle with the acorn hanging from it looks so pretty. Thanks for sharing and good luck with pruning.Blessings~Poppy

What a pretty, pretty table!! I love the glass and iron pumpkin too! I had something similar years ago i had gotten at Pier 1 but lost it along the way. We have a lot of yard work to do here too, and being in the woods there is always brush, etc. We just had 7 dead hemlock trees cut and one removed that had fallen near our house this spring so we can relate to taking care of all that!! Thanks for stopping by!!
