Fall Shelf

I have been so busy with the new school year I have barely had time to decorate for my favorite season! Is it odd that I differentiate between Fall/Autumn and Halloween decorating? I actually have two different boxes of stuff for each season. I leave out alot of the Fall decor when I put out my Halloween items, and also leave them out after I take down all the Halloween stuff for the Thanksgiving season (also a different box of decorations). So this is the little part of my fall decorating I have started, my seasonal shelf. I need to look for a black/dark brown shelf instead of the white one I used for spring. The ornaments from left to right are: "Fall Arches" Bent Creek, unknown pattern of an owl,"Pumpkins" out of Halloween Quickies by Brian Jackins, and Bent Creek "Red Wing Blackbird".
This is on the top of the shelf, Lizzie Kate "Fall squared".
And this one is of course another Bent Creek. I love the pumpkin fabric I used behind it in the frame.
And this was my creative project for the shelf. I taped off the pumpkin on a plain terracotta pot, then painted over it with a metallic craft paint in copper. And ta-da! I removed the tape for a cute pumpkin stencil.
This one was not stitched by me, I bought it off ebay. Super small stitches, and pumpkins and crows seems to be my fall theme this year. I love the long-stitched stars.

I love Fall also and I really like your Fall display. I can't wait to see the Halloween things in October.

I love the bent creek birds you have hanging up there - one day hopefully I will get around to stitching a couple myself - the old crows gather here was a great find, wasn't it? The fabric behind the bent creek cat is a great idea - looks great.

Great fall shelf! Love all the stitchery on it! The "Old Crows gather here" is one I would love to stitch one day! Very beautiful!!! :o)

I have also different boxes for the different seasons... Spring is the smallest, Halloween (is mixed with Fall) is the biggest.

Beautiful collection! I'm nowhere near organized enough to do seasonal decorating, but I love to look at this kind of thing.

Thanks for the visit to my blog!

Love your fall pieces. My favorite is the little black cat by Bent Creek, too cute. The way it was framed was great too :)
