Hooo Said That!

Hoo hooo hoooo!
It's autumn already again??

The autumn pendulum is swinging and once again I've brought out my extra long basket to decorate for fall.  This is the 4th year I've used it.  I like to think of it as a gathering basket.  I was going to get rid of it because it's so darn big, but I decided to give it another try.

Pictures of previous years
Kind of fun to look back!

I stuffed it full of things I have saved and a few new pieces.

 I added some Metallic Rose Gold craft paint (Martha Stewart) to the white pumpkin to give it a little more warmth.  I used a cotton ball to spread it on lightly.

I started with a heavy amount of paper in the bottom so the pumpkins would sit high up and it also helps hold some of the fall stems and pics.

The burlap wrapped pine cone balls came from Michael's this year as well as the owl. There is one on the backside too.

I like the crazy wispy fronds and added them for a little height and movement for the eye.

I found this runner in the drawer.  I think I used it last year for another arrangement.

The evening sun shines in for a few minutes.

Rich fall colors kissed by the warm autumn sun.
 This makes me want to warm up some cider!

It's chilled off here this week.   A cool front moved in and our daytime highs are going to be in the upper 50's to low 60's.  It feels good but a little chilly in the evenings.   
Sweater weather!

  8. Liz,
    Each year your basket looks better and better, dear friend!!!
    This vacation shopping trip,
    I fell head over heels in love with an extremely long wooden box!!!
    "Mr. Ed" took measurements, then when we ate lunch, he drew the box on paper.
    I think I might be getting one for my birthday or Christmas gift!!!
    That last photo with the sunlight is spectacular!!!
