Autumn Decor

It's definately not autumn weather in northern California yet, but I decorated for fall/hallowe'en/Thanksgiving anyway.
This decor will stay in my home until Thanksgiving is over, then I'll decorate for Christmas.
Here's a little nook.

I always have my flag from Brazil displayed to remind me of my son, Sean (Elder Horst).
He is serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.
He will be coming home at the end of April :)

This is the mantel over the fireplace.
I love my pilgrim and native american, my mother gave them to me years ago.

This is my "flower garden", but the photos are outdated and I'm missing two of my little grandchildren.

This isn't a photo of a family member.
Turn a little sideways, and.....

.....he turns into a "scary guy" as my grand daughter Charlotte would say!

I love this little antique table, we bought it years ago in Arkansas, for $50.
My daughter Lindsay made the beautiful table runner for me.

I made this wall sampler with two very dear friends, Nanette and Liz.  
I told the story about it here.

I love this table runner, and my mom gave me these little pilgrims too!

This little display is beside the sectional couch in the family room.
The sun was streaming through the window.
Lindsay made me this table runner also, it's reversible.

Last but not least, I just relocated this beautiful quilt to the family room.
It is one of my favorite quilts and you can read a newspaper article about it here.
It's called "A Tribute to Joseph", celebrating the sesquicentennial of the birth of Joseph Smith.
I will blog about this quilt at a later date.

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my "autumn decor".
