Back Door Fall Decoration

Just a funny little wooden pumpkin decoration I made to sit by the back entrance to say, “Welcome”, to our back door guests.

Did you notice the little green hedgeapple sitting by the bucket? In Texas these are called horse apples.  They are supposed to be used to repel bugs, spiders, ants, mice, etc. We are testing out that theory. We will see if they work.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by, you’re always welcome back!


Yes, there really is a cool season

“October gave a party; the leaves by hundreds came – the chestnuts, oaks, and maples, and leaves of every name. The sunshine spread a carpet, and everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band.” George Cooper

The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are falling and winter will be here soon. After our extremely hot and dry summer, believe me it is very much appreciated.

Can anyone resist putting out their fall decorations? Not I. The rich yellow, orange and deep red leaves falling from the trees are quite lovely.

This pumpkin is just a little something I made some time ago. It is made from 3/4 ” pine and decorated with a red heart, half-moon, star, and grapevine. It was one of those projects where you use what you have and design as you go.

I love this fall season. It always seems to say, come, it’s time to sit and rest awhile.

Til next time, thanks for stopping by!

Welcome Fall

Fall is just around the corner …

Do you recognize this pattern? If the answer is “yes” then you have been painting for several years also, and Terrye French is one of your favorite artists. This pattern if from her painting book “Candy Corn and Christmas Cookies” published in 1999.

This was a fun project. Lots of wood cutting, sanding, and wire twisting in putting it all together. Lots of different colors were used. This was a good way to use up small amounts of left over paint. 

Keep reading. Here comes the finished product.
