Comtemplating a New Fall Centerpiece...

That's what is going on...

I'm thinking about a new centerpiece display for the Dining Room Table. I haven't really made a commitment yet, because I'm not ready to start bringing the turkeys out. But since October is flying by, I'm putting together some ideas. It's a work in progress...

This is the way it's been since early September, 
and I was ready for a little change-up.

I knew that I wanted to use this new plaid scarf that I found a couple of weeks ago, that old rusty lantern, and the small black wagon. Other than that, it's been the game of "add, then subtract, then start over. I wanted some height behind the wagon, so I found one of my old iron urns and grabbed the tiger striped pumpkin from on top of the kitchen china cabinet.

Then somehow the Turkey Tureen appeared to perch on the wagon 
midst all the Fall leaves and berries.

But like I said, I'm not bringing out all the turkeys yet,
they have to wait a week.
One of my rules...

So I tried different leaves, garlands, and berries.

I'm sorry, Mr. Turkey,
I'm not ready for you yet.

I tried some hedge apples and a little Fall Bouquet,
but I'm still working on the hedge apples...
so you just get to see a smidge for now.

We just got home last night from a wonderful week camping in central Arkansas. It's known as "The Natural State" and I have to tell you, the leaves were incredible despite the prolonged dry spell. Only problem was that we were in the track of the hurricane, so it rained and drizzled a good part of our stay. But it really didn't matter, our surroundings were so beautiful the gray skies only enhanced the leaf color. Mountains, pine forests, clear rivers with breathtaking bluffs and cliffs, plus the Fall leaves that were stunning. 

I'll have some pics of the scenery later this week. I came home, inspired with all the beauty. Everyone (homes and businesses) has decorated in gorgeous Fall displays with pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks, hay bales and mums. I was one happy camper, despite the drizzles... after all it is October!

Hopefully, I'll get this table put together soon.
