Fall Nesting Week

Okay, I couldn't stand it. The weather has been perfectly Autumnal and I needed to get some Fall decorations put up. But I'm not dragging out the totes until I have the den done and put back together. So... last night I did a little crafting and I have at least a temporary display of my favorite season: Remember the sneak peek I gave you of the little something I made for the guest room? I made another, this time for Fall. It's called a "ragamuffin" swag and if you want to know how to make your own, you can look here.
I had the fabric, jute, and some of the ribbon. Today I picked up the orange sheer ribbon and the tulle. I think the little bit of sparkle is a nice addition.

This is tied to the top part of the baker's rack which is currently sitting in the sunroom. I added the few mini-pumpkins picked from my garden last weekend and now I feel better. There is a little corner of Autumn to make me smile.
So if you haven't checked out Fall Nesting Week at the Inspired Room, go take a look at what others are doing to get ready for the best season of the year!
P.S. - I can't wait to show you the den - the new paint color is called "dipped chocolate", and I have to say it, it's yummy! :o)

Sweet post for the Fall Nesting party, everyone is putting up soem lovely suggestions on how to feather one's nest to celebrate the changing seasons.

Think we need to hear more about this dipped in chocolate colour scheme.

Your blog header is one of the best I've ever seen. It was fun popping over and being greeted by such a warm and welcoming header :)

Hi Tammy,
Thanks for coming over to visit my blog....LOVE your ragamuffin garland....it turned out GREAT!! I just think they are too cute but since I don't sew I have to always buy what fabric I am going to use in mine. I am not sure what I might clip in mine...but the couple of ring clips are in there in case something jumps out at me....KWIM???

Tammy,
I was hoping to see a picture of your homegrown pumpkins.
They are so cute! I love your black bakers rack all decked out for fall.

I may try to grow some for next year too.
