What can you do with colored popcorn?

What can you do with colored popcorn? Put it in a curvy glass jar that's what!

If you can't find colored popcorn, twist off the kernels from indian corn. I like to sprinkle cinnamon oil on it them to give my home a pleasant scent. Insert a candle and enjoy the ambiance.

Another so simple project you can do!

Dough Bowl

Here is my treasured old dough bowl which reminds my husband of a pig trough!

Anyhoo, here I have it displayed with an abundance of God's fall creations...gourds, pumpkins & fall leaves.

So simple to throw together, just pluck and plunk.

Front Door Fall Beauty

This is a beautiful front doorway all decked out for Fall.

It is from an old Southern Living At HOME catalog and I think it is stunning!

Big & Juicy Apples

Do you have an abundance of apples?

Well why not display them in a pretty container that has been nestled with burlap or muslin fabric. Insert a fall colored pillar candle in a warm and inviting scent like caramel apple. Tie a coordinating ribbon around pillar top that is out of the way of the flame!

Make small 3 inch tufts of ribbon and poke in randomly for added color and texture.

This might make you want to eat healthy! After all these are so gorgeous and tempting, aren't they?!

Fall Blessings,

God's bountiful beauty

Here is a photo I thought you might enjoy. It's taken from our old home that I truly do miss. It was a big old Arts & Crafts Style Home.

In the bay window in front of the kitchen sink I displayed my old goose surrounded by bittersweet vines, twigs, mini pumpkins, gourds and tiny rice lights.

So simple & easy but so beautiful at the same time. Just proves that you don't need a lot of stuff to make a beautiful display!

God provided me with everything but the lights & the goose both of which I have had for years!

Do you have something similar you'd like to share?

Do you likey?
