Autumn In The Hall

Good evening all!
Well tomorrow marks the last quarter of the year.
September 1st.

I must admit though,
I do love Autumn...
almost as much as Christmas.

So much so that I started to decorate
for this festive season in our hall first.

I so love the colors this time of year.

Something about the yellows, reds, oranges
and even browns....that delight me.
Its the time of the year where I start getting out the candles
and enjoy the scents of the evening.
Where I start to curl up with my favorite throw
and read a bit...or finish a cross stitch project
that I start months maybe even longer.

This is one of those projects that I did back in the 80's.
Do you remember when plastic canvas was all the rage?
I use to get every Leisure Art book on this.
Even started drawing up my own designs.
I would make tissue box holders for friends and family.
Magnets and Christmas ornaments,
Halloween Trick or Treat bags for my grands...
and yes even pillows like this one.
If you did not know better it almost looks like needlepoint,
but this pillow was indeed made from plastic canvas.
I found it in an old stash and decided to display it
in my hall for Fall.

Did you know if you click on my pictures,
it will enlarge them?
Give it a try if you did not know.

Autumn In The Hall Blessings To All!


  1. It does look like needlpoint Janice. Have a great 3 day weekend. Bob too.

  2. Yes, today is the meteorological beginning of Fall according to Apparently, weather predicting of temperatures uses a different calendar for the seasons in order to capture a more accurate picture of the temperature changes . Works for me! Time to decorate!! Love your fall scapes!
