Autumn Splendor

Ahhhh....Ready for cool crisp air?  Brisk mornings?  Fireplace coziness?  It will be here before we know it!  Since I prepare ahead of time for everything, here's what I've been using my crazy imagination to create...

These pretty fur pumpkins and these fancy shmancy gold pumpkins will be decorating the Abigail House Bed & Breakfast in Danville, Pennsylvania.  I had a lovely email conversation with the innkeeper, Carla Leighow, who is a super sweetie, and does a beautiful job at this Bed & Breakfast.


 Here's the dining room at the B&B.
Just lovely, isn't it?  I feel relaxed just looking at it!  If you are in Pennsylvania, I recommend staying here.

These ornate silver pumpkins will be decorating someone's home this fall...
And these pretty little ruffled pumpkins will be at a lovely young lady's bridal shower....
These peach sherbet-colored pumpkins are up for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Oh, how I love spreading beauty and joy across the world!  If my creations have made you smile today, then I'll consider today a success!
Spread a little joy to someone with a smile or a kind word today.  It will make you happy too!  :  )

Hugs, Catherine
