"It's Fall Y'all" Party and 100th Follower Give-Away Info!

I have to admit that this kind of party causes my OCD to just run wild! The criteria for this party was "Anything Fall", and since Fall is my favorite time of year I started decorating and posting about it at the end of August. In my book, Fall just can't get here quick enough!

So I am posting some random photos of my many Fall vignettes and projects that I have been working on around my house.
If you're new to my blog I hope these will whet your appetite to go back through my posts and check out the other Fall Fun. I got a new camera last week, a "big girl" Kodak Easy Share, so I'm enjoying seeing the difference that it has made in similar shots. My new photos are much clearer. Went from a 7 mega pixel to a 10 mp. I wanted to keep it as uncomplicated as possible, and still improve my photos.

This is a little of my Fall Front Porch
 and the Radio Flyer wagon that I painted black for Fall.

This white "window box" has been part of my Fall decor
 in my kitchen for the last two years.
I have to use "faux" pumpkins and berries inside
because my two kitty girls have a little chewing problem.

The Sunroom is my favorite decorating spot in the house,
because I change out the quilt on the wicker settee almost every month.
I just love decorating with quilts, and I have a lot of "family" ones.

The white baker's rack in the sunroom holds some of my
 collection of English Cottages...
and you know, I just have to add in some ORANGE!

I found this little white house recently,
and I think it can be used for each and every season.
It does look just a tiny bit spooky!

I have this overly large metal Country French basket
on my Dining Room table that is there "permenantly".
 It has a moss covered base and is covered in faux ivy.
So I just change out the seasonal flowers.

The runner on the table with a French provencial theme,
is an old Belgium tapestry from the 1930's.

Fabric taffeta pumpkin on a cupcake stand.

"Sweet face" on brown transferware dessert plates.

This is a faux pumpkin topiary in my Entry that I put together
 last year and posted about in early September.

My favorite "Motel Chair" with a rusty white finish

...and a grocery basket with gourds and pumpkins.

Many of you have seen some of these vignettes before,
hope you didn't mind seeing them again.

Be sure and say Hi to Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality
and check out all the other party people!
Now for more fun!!
