Seasonal things

I've never been very good at decorating. Some people can arrange things on a wall or a table and it looks like a masterpiece. I do it and it looks like a bunch of junk. I've gotten a tad bit better but I still just do not have a flair for it.
I do like to add some season decorations here and there though. Last weekend, or it may have been the weekend before, I lose track of time, I pulled out a few things and made a fall arrangement for my coffee table.
I love the glow of candle light

Everything I used for this I already had except for the glass vase.






We're supposed to have a cold and rainy weekend. I can't decide if I want to hide out in my craft room or huddle under a blanket on the couch. Maybe a little of both

A little of both sounds like a plan!! You did an awesome job on your candle decoration! I bet it smells really good too! Happy Weekend!

Eva Ason said...

I agree a little bit of both sounds good! I like what you've done with that candle decoration, love the colours. Enjoy your weekend!

What a pretty arrangement! I love decorating, but I haven't got round to it yet!

Christine said...

Love your arrangement. Perfectly fall!
Have a cozy and crafty weekend!

Catherine said...

That looks pretty!
I think a little of both would be the perfect plan.
Stay warm Ann!

I'd have the blanket handy....the candle glowing and a good book to read --- let the rains come!!

Personally, I think your candle with acorns, etc. is perfect!!! Is it scented?

the candle decoration is beautiful and so are the photos of it.. i love candlelight, even in daytime and with it being gray and rainy, you will need that sparkle. i vote you do some of both...

Good Morning Ann, I think that your candle arrangement is lovely and I'll just bet it smells sensational. Rainy days where made for cuddling up with a blanket and a good book. I'm sure that Duke would love to keep you company and even keep your feet warm :)
I missed that chain saw art that you posted on the 17th. Wow, I love that.
Have a relaxing rainy day,
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

I think you do a grand job of decorating.

I have neither the talent, ability, or inclination to decorate - you know me and my minimalist style...

I love your fall arrangements! I just did something similar for my dining room table. I put a candle cup in the center of a plate of fall potpourri. So simple, yet so pretty! I think you have a better creative touch than you think.

Sandee said...

I think that centerpiece is awesome. I'm just saying.

Have a fabulous day. My best to Duke. :)

I love that idea, Ann...in fact, I may just add that to my list! Stay warm and bundled, my friend!...:)JP

Your decorating looks good to me! It's sunny and beautiful here this weekend but I'm spending time in bed anyway since I can't shake this cold. :(

Ginny said...

I beg to differ about your decorating skills. This is beautiful and I could never have done it. Don't fight me on this because you will never win.

Chatty Crone said...

I disagree too - you have a flair for decorating and designing - are you kidding???

Sharkbytes said...

Haha- that's how I feel about my decorating ability, and you are much better at it than I am! This arrangement is very nice.

Donna said...

Well, you did a Beautiful Job of it!!!

That looks like a sweet arrangement! Whatever you do this weekend, be sure to give Duke some extra love and attention.
