New Fall items!

I received another of my wonderful gifts from the PAFA giveaway. This one was a scarecrow by Laura of Cave Creek Primitives. He is so wonderful, I just love it, she did such a beautiful job on all of the wonderful details. You should also check out her Etsy Store, she has a lot of unique prims at great prices.

I had a burlap piece on the wall, where I placed him and he needed something to fit the season. So, I made a new piece for fall. It is a design by Terri Dogenkolb, of Whimsicals, from her Pumpkin and Spices book. The original was an oval pillow shape, so I added some extra leaves and acorns to fit into a rectangle.

I love how it looks together and the picture does not do, either, any justice, so much better in person. I had to lighten it up a bit, and it took away from the tea stained wools, and left the rest a bit dark.

What a great scarecrow, and I love the piece you made - that crow doesn't seem to mind him much though, lol! What a wonderful corner of your home!

Awesome! I like how the scarecrow is on wheels like a pull toy! And, I can't believe you whipped up that fall banner so quick! Would you believe I have that Pumpkins and Spices for a year now and haven't gotten to any of the projects?

Oh my! I just love your woolen penny rug! It goes with the scarecrow perfectly (or should I say primly?). I have to check and see if I have this pattern book!
