More Fall Fun and a Critter Sighting.....

Here is my ledge above the fireplace dressed up for Fall....of course, this is subject to change as I drag more and more stuff out.....
This is the black shelf that I painted.
This is on the sofa table....I want to get some garland or berries (and I only had one pick left) to decorate around these pumpkins.........
And look at the visitor we had on our fence....I hope it doesn't have a bunch of brothers and sisters cause it doesn't look full grown. Wonder where the mother is???
Peek A Boo, I see you....I think it thought it was hidden because it didn't want to move at all.

I hope you were behind glass when taking the pics of your masked friend!!!
I love to look at them but getting close to raccoons is not on my agenda!
LOL

Good Morning Darlene!
I started my rag garland yesterday *smiles* Not finished yet but I think I can get it done this weekend. You know it's a great project to work on while watching tv but I bet you know that already. I kept getting up to find more stuff to tie on to it. I forgot to add my ring clips so I'll have to go back and work them in. But it's fluffy and cute and I'm so loving it so far ~ thanks for your great tutorial! You rocked it!

Hi Darlene. Oh, your Fallness if lovely!! What a cute little critter. I know they can really be booger, though. It's cute how he's hiding behind your gate.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh that raccoon!! They were BEASTS in California. I'd never seen such big raccoons before living there. Anyhooo....fall decor looks great! I love the white pumpkins! I can't get enough of them.

Good morning Darlene, we have raccoons too. I especially love when they get in the trash and drag it into the driveway before company comes!!!! Hey I thought we could have coffee this morning, how far away are you from California? OK we will virtual visit with coffee.
I love that mantel. Is that a crow with the bird cage? I have got to do that, I have a black bird cage and never thought of that adorable idea. Things look great at your place!
Blessings,
Debbie

We had twin raccoon babies a couple years ago...their mother was always close! They are so cute though!

Your decorations are very pretty! I love the black shelf!

Have a great Friday!

Cute fall decorations! I still can't bring myself to put them out yet. I'll do it closer to October.

Aren't raccoons the cutest? They're mean as all get out, and they'll tear up a bird feeder in no time flat, as well as swipe birds out of chicken wire cages, but they're still cute! : )

I love your fall decoarating and your black shelf looks great. Thanks for showing the raccoon. We don't have them in England. We get plenty of squirrels, foxes and hedgehogs around here. It's really interesting seeing animals, birds and plants in other parts of the world.

I love all your fall decorations! I also LOVE the black shelf~ so pretty, and it looks great with your fall things...

About the critter on your fence, we get those, too. But ours are SO big, it frightens me! What's up with that? Raccoons on steroids?

I hope you have a great Friday AND a fabulous weekend! I still cannot wait to do your rag garland idea! :)

I love all of it (excluding the racoon!). That shelf is sooo cute--especially with the tassle hanging from it.

I love all your fall decorations all over in your house-Just lovely Darlene, so very inviting!

The critter is sooo cute but I know what a pain they can be!

Dawn said...

Hi Darlene,

The fall decorations are very pretty. It is hard for me to think fall today. It was probably the hottest, most humid day I remember in a long time! I was glad to get home and into my air conditioned house!

We've had some of those critters in our yard. They used to knock over the trash cans so we started to keep them in the shed.

take care,
Dawn

Elise said...

Darlene, this is the second time I am commenting because the first one didn't connect. My computer acted up.

Your fall things are looking very festive. I am wishing I could do mine. I have to wait for the knee gets better.

I hope you did not get too close to that critter...be careful.

Have a great weekend.

Hugs, Jeanne
