Fall Stalks

While the Mr. is away, the wife will play!

Now that the weather has become cooler, I have been more in the mood to do things around the house.
Weeding the flower beds.
Planting mums and a few transplants.
Decorating the house for fall.

I bought some corn stalks and decided today would be a great day to enhance them.
AND, make a huge mess on the kitchen floor.

I love how the white and dark brown look together.
A simple burlap bow.

The poor dove doesn't know there is a crow at the top waiting for Halloween to come.

A good friend of mine showed my how to enhance my corn stalks. 
She used to sell these in her shop for big bucks, thanks Nancy for teaching me how to make mine.
Now I couldn't imagine putting out plain corn stalks.

I added a 2 foot long button garland.

I am going to make another corn stalk for the back deck using the traditional colors of fall.

I think this one will be my favorite, I may have to make one for the dinning room too.

It is a beautiful sunny day so I have work in the garden to do.
Oh, the kitchen mess is still there, I will get creative after dinner again.

I hope you are having a great day too.

I am sharing with Kathleen from Faded Charm for White Wednesday.

  3. This is just gorgeous!! I would definitely make one for indoors, too! The bow and flowers are what really makes it! I'd love to make a few but I'm sure the squirrels would be decorating the yard!!

  13. I really LOVE what you've done for fall decor so far!!! Sometimes I wished I lived somewhere in the East Coast so that the seasons are "separate!" Over here in SoCali, the seasons kind of "meld" together when it still feels like summer when it's already fall! lol Have a most wonderful day & upcoming weekend!
