A Second Look

Hello Friends~ ~

Above is the little table dressed for Fall.

Last week I posted this table decorated in summer dressing. If you'll remember I got so excited when I saw what Artie had done that I just grabbed what was available and that meant all the items I was packing away for the season. Nothing like doing it all twice in one year. I loved the look but lets be practical, it's fall so the summer deco has got to go.
This is the little table just after I painted it.

Above is the summer deco I did in a hurry.

This is the fall deco against all the colored leaves of Fall.
I'm thrilled to have my own little corner to knit and work on craft projects.
You can see above that the Valances match the tablecloth. I had two yards left over
from sewing the valances last summer when we moved in.
It makes a great table cloth.
All I did was put it in the washer to fringe the edges for a casual look.
I put roll up shades on the 10 windows in the sun room to keep it cooler
in the hot summer months and to keep the warm air in on winter nights.
The valance is for the shades to hide under when not in use.
I used a few of the same objects and added the little glass pumpkin. There is a local artist who makes them and it was a gift from a friend.

This is a lace project I started in the basket with a few balls of yarn.

Changed out the pink geranium for ivy in a tin box.

This is the sweater I'm working on. The back is finished, this is the start of the front.
Mittens I wish I was talented enough to make. . .someday perhaps.

Make it a Great Week

Hi Ahrisha, thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment.

What a wonderful spot to decorate and to admire the color changes outdoors. Of course I couldn't help noticing your sweet rug too :-D
Best, Jane T.

How beautiful is your table and what a wonderful view from your windows! I love the cherub all perched atop the books. And your lace in the basket. All a cozy feel to it.

Very pretty! That table is great - I am so scared to paint wood, yet! Thanks so much for the heads up about my broken link. I'm not sure what went wrong there, but I put a new one up! Hope Susan catches the bad one!
