I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like the transition from Summer to Fall.
Living in Arizona you have to make your own transition because we don’t see the
temperature dip under 90 degrees until November!
It’s actually quite depressing when October rolls around and it’s still 100 degrees!
What is not depressing is my Milk Glass collection.
It keeps me happy at all temperatures!
Decorating around Milk Glass is the easiest thing ever.
It’s so pretty, all I have to do is add of bit of greenery here and there.
This year I added some wood slices that my brother Ike saved for me from Colorado.
I would also like to say that he gave me those pheasant feathers but unfortunately he did not.
I’m pretty sure he’s keeping all of his to himself.
I made the flannel pumpkins with some shirts I bought at Goodwill for $1. I simply cut a circle and stitched a purse stitch all the way around the edge, added some pinto beans, then pulled the threads tight to create a pouch. Next, I glued on a pumpkin stem. The grocery store lets me pick the stems out of the bottom of the pumpkin bin for FREE. They’re the ones that have fallen off in transit.
Cotton stems are the best. I use them all-year-round but for whatever reason,
they just make a statement with the fall decor.
I just keep adding more Milk Glass by picking it up when I see it add Goodwill. There’s still space in these cabinets but at the rate I collect it, pretty soon it’s going to get crowded. Then what? I really don’t want the answer to that question.
Thanks for stopping by,
P.S. In addition to my Milk Glass is another of my “must haves” is my Boos Chopping Block. Not a day goes by that someone in the family doesn’t use it. It’s solid and durable and if you treat it right, it can last for many many years. You can find one like mine here: Boos Chopping Block.
