Fall Fun

Tomorrow is the first day of FALL... My favorite time of year... Just thought I'd share a few fun photos...
On Friday I got part two of my Elise Fall Swap,
she made me this Thankful sign, out of an old kitchen cabinet, the reverse side says
FAMILY, I hung it with a plate hanger.

Note, I found this pumpkin dessert plate here.
Last year she made me this INCREDIBLE fall arrangement, it stays out year round, this year she sent me the FALL blocks and I displayed them on my typewriter.


Look at this ACORN tassel... It is HUGE and I L.O.V.E. it
She sent along shutter slat ornies with FALL words on them, along with a bag of acorn bells I strung on twine, my FALL tree is super happy and so am I.
Remember my cloche?? I found glitter skulls today, stacked them on my black hob nail cake plate and covered with the cloche...

It is all looks so great. I think the letters displayed on the typewriter is pure genius! I keep scrolling back up to see it again! (while my mouth hangs open in amazement)
And as always I love seeing all the goodies that you and Elise swap with each other!

I love the thankful sign. Actually, everything is really cute. I have an old cabinet door sitting in the garage right now - maybe I can put it to good use as a sign.. Thanks for the inspiration!

Jen, speaking of fall, I picked up something for you last Fri. at a mission type store ... did you get me email about that? I think I titled it "a ? f/ Cheryl B.".

May I please have your home mailing address so that I can get the "treasures" to you soon?
