Fall Decorating inspired by Connie at Shady Creek Lane

I have been busy getting my fall decorating started. Autumn is my favorite season. It is beautiful this time of year in central New York. I was inspired by this post at Shady Creek Lane.

Sorry for the bad lighting in the picture - there are big windows on both sides of the table. I'm happy with how it turned out! I used a faux pumpkin and antiqued it to knock down the bright orange. Printed out "Welcome" on my computer and transferred the pattern to the pumpkin. I used a black paint pen to color in the letters. The berry spray and candle holder are from Hobby Lobby. The glass vases, candles, pebbles, little pumpkins and leaves are all from the dollar store. In all this pretty centerpiece cost me about $25. Not bad! The table topper is a lap quilt I made at a beginner quilting class last year. It fits my dining room table perfectly!

Here is a photo of me with my oldest daughter apple picking. I may be a little biased, but I think she's beautiful! :)


  1. Staci,
    What an honor to be mentioned on your blog, thank you. I think your pumpkin turned out very cute. I like the taller pedestal you used.

    Hugs to ya,

  2. What a cute picture!! I hope to have a picture like that with my daughter when she'd bigger. :)
    I really enjoyed looking around your blog!
