Just a little something on the fireplace...waiting to be painted it black
like Dot's at Pickets Place. She did an amazing job!

A little something above the scattered cabinets in the kitchen.

Got a little fake ivy going on. Don't tell Nester!

Not sure of what else I could put in this. Any ideas?

Not the best picture taker!! How do some people get such amazing pictures and some of us look like we're still using the first camera we ever purchased? What's the secret?The flower arrangement is so much
better than it's showing. The hurricane candle holder is one of
my favorites to decorate.

Have a wonderful day :0)

I mentioned this on another post but my camera has a small flower symbol that signifies macro mode it gives more clarity to pictures especially when taking close ups;) Keep playing with the camera, you'll get there and they are not that bad looks nice to me! Heck who knew people FALL decorated?? French;)

I love all of your displays, especially the little pumpkin in the cloche!
I often take my interior pictures without a flash and end up w/ a better picture. I don't have a great camera or a macro feature, but I find turning on all the lights and taking the pictures when the most daylight is streaming in works best.
I need to ask Santa for a camera!

Very cute fall decor!! I love the cloche. I agree about the macro setting on most camera's. It works great. If you have a little flower on your camera try that setting. Let me know if it helps!!

It all looks great!!! Everyone says their camera takes better pictures with the flash off in the house but mine look HORRIBLE if I don't use it.

Love the pumpkin in the little bell jar!

Good good morning to my SECOND favorite twins..remember here that I HAVE TWIN GRANDDAUGHTERS!! LOL

I love your beautiful fall decorations. And, are you planning to paint your mantle black like Picket's? I think her's is simply AMAZING.

Yep, promise you won't tell Nester, but I use faux greenery, too. I am hooked on it...I don't even know what else I CAN use in it's place. Your's looks great!!

Cute fall decor! I try not to take pictures without natural light. Sometimes you just can't help it though.

oh, two girls are waaay to young to remember HIM but glad you enjoyed his music. I, too, can't remember the name of his movie...but I remember seeing it...GARY BUSEY was in the staring role.
Oh, and Sweet Dreams was one of my favorites, too. I love JESSICA LANG and ED HARRIS both and I've seen the movie a bunch of times. Think I will buy the DVD ! I even loved watch Jessica in KING can see I REALLY love her!

I love all your fall decorations! I really want to get one of those cloaches (sp?). I love yours as is with the pumpkin in it, very cool! I have not been in the mood to decorate for fall yet, but just this morning it was cold and I turned on the heat in the house and lit some candles and now I am finally getting in the mood!

Hugs, Sharon
