Winning and Fall Décor Accents

A winner! I just got news from Cathy at TreasuredHeirlooms (http://treasured-heirlooms.blogspot.com/) that I won her blog contest for the Victorian Altered Art Gift Tag. I’m really looking forward to receiving it.

As I mentioned to Cathy in my e-mail, these artistic tags are a new craft to me. Since discovering this new world of blogging nearly two months ago, I have been introduced to so many new ideas from some really special people.

Seeing examples of such creativity has also re-stimulated my interest in doing some creative hand-work. In the past I have done a few needlework or sewing projects to add touches of prettiness to my home. Now I want to take that up again. More on that subject in another post.
Meanwhile, here is some things for fall table setting and décor accents I’ve gathered from various storage or display spaces -- soup tureen, gravy boat, fruit and vegetable covered boxes.

There is the little scarecrow I got at the thrift shop for 25 cents, mentioned in my Oct. 3 post. The large folk art tin container was a $15 consignment shop find. It is very heavy and very sturdy. The ceramic pumpkin is one of several containers in shape of fall produce.

I hope you've enjoyed this Columbus Day holiday!
