The pumpkins have left the attic

Yes, I am slowly pulling down the Fall decor from the attic and all the other hiding places.  I have converted my PB wall cubby to Fall.  The grater perched on top has an electric candle inside. It lets off a really fun glow at night.  I printed the Owl and pumpkin seed pack label from The Graphics Fairy.
I had thought about using some small real pumpkins this year and black and white photos. But, after taking a look at all these cute little primitive pumpkins and acorns that we have collected, I had to display them.  I included some photos of last years Halloween party perched in flower frogs.  Double click to enlarge.

We have been a busy, busy family these past few weeks. I hope to catch up on some planned posts and to visit each of you soon.  My mom is having bladder surgery tomorrow (yuck, poor gal).  She should be fine, but honestly does not have a healthy ticker, so please keep her in your prayers this weekend. We hope to have her home Sunday.  Until then....thank you so much for your follows, comments and friendship. Have a safe weekend!

  7. Good for you for getting some fall decorating done. Sorry your Mom has to have surgery tomorrow, bummer! I know she will do fine, but I bet she would rather go shopping for the day!


  8. Hi Vicki,
    Oh wow, I love your fall decorations!!! They're beautiful!!!

  9. I love cubbies and yours is amazing. Loving all your fun Fall decor. I'm about ready to bring out the pumpkins myself!
    Prayers for you Mom!

  10. Vicki,
    your start on fall decorating looks great! Love the display on top! Your Mom is in my thoughts and prayers.

  11. Love your Fall decorating. I'll be praying for your mom :)

  12. Fun, fun, stuff Vicki! I've started opening boxes and totes from below myself (mine are in the basement - no accessible attic here - or it'd be full too!) And you know, once you start, you can't stop! Truly hoping your mom's surgery goes well and she recovers quickly. She and your family will be in my prayers....Smiles & Pumpkin Hugs ~ Robin

  13. Great minds think alike. I posted about those exact same pumpkin seed packets/labels yesterday on my blog when I showed off my fall decor. Your vignette is lovely. I'm loving all the little details. Best wishes on your mom's surgery. My mom had the same procedure last fall. She had to take it easy for several weeks afterwards. Thinking of your family!

  14. You always have such wonderful things and displays!
    Prayers being sent for your Mom, hope everything goes well and she has a speedy recovery!
    Prim Blessings
