There are lots of pictures in this post....
I found the circles for these pumpkins in Mom's stash, she had cut them out last year. So Dad fetched some branches that I cut up for the stems and I sewed this bunch of pumpkins on our last visit there.
a little quilt, ceramic hearts and a needlework scene - all made by Mom
3 grandsons framed on the wall - they are all 3 bigger and older now
Mom, me and NinaBeth
Gavin is pretty much of the star of the fridge
Kitchen table decorated for fall
old oak bufffet,
my parents bought it at an auction in their hometown way back when I was teenager
Printers tray filled with pictures and momentos
glass front hutch filled with their wedding china and crytal
lamp made by Dad with help from my Grandpa.
they used a wagon axle and wheel hub. It was from an old wagon on my grandparents farm and Grandpa thought the wagon had been driven into Oklahoma during one the land runs.
dresser in the guest room - the clear crystal thing is a cast of my brothers face - he was the model for an award and it was a big honor made by a professional artist, it seems just a pinch creepy to me though...
Crazy quilt heart made by Mom from neckties that belonged to her daddy
crewel embroidery picture by Mom, this reminds all of us the farm she grew up on

I love Brenda's cozy quilts and pillows and used hers as the inspiration for mine.
My colors are a little different than Brenda's so they match my green couches. All my fabric was scraps.
I've also pieced a sofa-size postage stamp quilt and bought the batting for it today - used one of the nice Hobby Lobby 40% off coupons on it -
but it may take me awhile to get it quilted.
If you've never been to Brenda's Cozy Home blog, then go when you have some time and big mug of hot tea, because you will be there awhile. She has so many beautiful pictures, I promise you will enjoy her.
