Share Your Creations Party #54

Welcome to Share Your Creations Thursday! In this case Friday...I had so much to do yesterday I knew ahead of time I would not get this post done on Thursday. Anyway, I hope you will join in the fun even if it's a little late! So many great links last week!! I appreciate all of you who joined.
 
On with the features...
 
My friend Becca at Adventures In Decorating did a beautiful job decorating her mantle for fall. The pops of the vibrant oranges are stunning against the white mantle. Love it Becca!!
 
  Christina at Christy Gets Crafty made this cute Halloween mesh wreath. Check out her blog for more designs. Mesh sure is the thing right now!

 Angela at Hickory Trail Blog created a beautiful fall vignette on her buffet. Love the tall sticks in the vase.
 Yum! Doesn't peach crisp with vanilla frozen yogurt sound good?  Visit JodiFitz.com for the recipe.
 For my creations I thought I would show you a little more fall I added around the house. I'm still working on some areas including the dining room table. It's looking more like fall here every day. It's also feeling more like fall...it's only 79 degrees here today! It's a little rainy, but it still feels good for a change.
 
This is in my kitchen by the sink. I added some pumpkins in the glass terrarium a "Give thanks" metal sign from Hobby Lobby and a pumpkin in a pot.
 
 I added some metal pumpkins to the top of my bookcase. There are two big speakers up there that the greenery and pumpkins conceal. Underneath a tray and trunk with greenery and pumpkins conceal a long cord from the speakers to the T.V. Got to hide the ugly! lol...
 I added two ceramic pumpkins, silk leaves and other dried materials to a tray on my sofa table. I found the pretty mosaic candle holder at Pier 1 Imports.
 
More fall decorating to come...
 
I want to thank each one of you who left me a nice comment about the magazine feature. You guys
 are so sweet!!! I truly appreciate each one! I am truly honored to be in the magazine!

Ok...so what did you create?

 You are welcome to share anything you have created. An item, a recipe, a room you have decorated, a vignette, a piece of furniture you have painted and the list goes on and on...

Please add a link back to my blog so others can find the party. Thank you!

Hi Kristen! I'm a fairly new follower of your blog, although I feel like I know you already from reading almost all of your posts! I absolutely love your home, your decor and your sense of style, and oh don't worry, I'm not a total wierdo, lol!

I've linked a few projects with you for the first time this week... the wreath was inspired by your lovely creations!
xoxo

Things looks so pretty around your house. I think I may be the last blogger to decorate for fall once I finally have time to do it!

Thanks for hosting the party!

Chrissy said...

Wow Kristen, Your kitchen is gorgeous! I just did a post on whether to paint mine or not. How you did your cabinets, is exactly how I wanted to do mine.
This party is pretty great too, lot of ideas.
Congrats on Country Woman!
Thanks for sharing,
Chrissy
