Finally Dressed for Fall

So, I'm still trying to figure out my "Fall Look" in this house.
I've never had a mantle without a big screen TV in the middle of it!
Anyway, this is what I've got so far...



Downstairs I made some chubby pumpkins and stuck them on candlesticks...


I used this tutorial (posted by my Kentucky friend Danielle, Hi Danielle!) to make my pumpkins but then added a fabric stem instead.
Yep, that's what I got so far.
Recently found out that we will have 20+ people staying in our home for the Thanksgiving weekend.
I've got a lot to do... Can't wait!!

It looks gorgeous! Those drapes are awesome. :) You really have a knack for decorating.

It looks great! Our fall decorations so far are pumpkin window clings...and I suppose there's a nice layer of dust in some places that I might as well leave 'til after Halloween. :)

thanks for the link love. I noticed the lovely chandelier. so pretty. Don't you love figuring this stuff out for a new house? Then the seasons change and you have to change everything again:)

I was wondering if that was you at Joann's but I wasn't sure. Plus I was making sure Ivy didn't topple the whole store when I wasn't looking! Your house is looking fabulous, I love the mirror!

Yes, I have to know as well where you found the fabric for the curtains. I have searched everywhere!

Ladies, I searched for the fabric forever too. I finally found it at Dallas Fabric Warehouse in a veritcle stripe and I just cut it and turned it horizontal and luckily you can't see the seam. Unfortunately they only had 12 yards left (I bought 8 of those yards) and it was discontinued.
