Share Your Creations Party #61

Welcome to Share Your Creations party #61! I hope you will link up and join in the fun!
 
There were so many great links at last week's party! With the Holiday season approaching I can't wait to see what everyone is creating.
 
On with the features...
 
I love this pig cutting board by Project Braun Haus. There is even a tutorial on how to make it! Cute! 
 
  Allyson at Domestic Superhero made this ottoman from an up cycled pallet. It turned out beautiful!
 Halloween is over, but I had to feature this adorable tree by All That Glitters. It's never too early to think about ideas for next year!
 
 
For my creations I thought I would show you some of my fall vignettes around the house. I have showed most of them in different posts, but thought I would combine them all here. The only thing I have not showed you are any backyard fall pics. That's because I did not do a lot back there. I did manage to decorate this iron shelf and put out a few fall pillows, but that's about it.
 
Here is my island with the layered bean, pea, and corn arrangement. I am thinking about something like this for Christmas! Hmmmm...  

This tray of pumpkins, berries and leaves is on the chest in my entryway. I'll have to think of something to put in the tray for Christmas. Hmmmm....
 
One last look at my fall mantle...What will I do for Christmas? Maybe I'll make a Christmas wreath, add some Christmas accents across the mantle and some red candles to the lanterns? Hmmmm.... 
 Here is my coffee table with the giant acorns. I laughed out loud at one of the comments. I can't remember who said it, but they said they would not want to come face to face with the squirrel that is trying to hide one of those acorns! lol...That cracked me up! What in the world will I do on this coffee table for Christmas? Hmmmm...
 
 Here is one last look at the dining room table...maybe I'll dress up the cage for Christmas. Hmmmm....
There sure are a lot of Hmmms in this post...lol. I'm thinking about Christmas decorating, but am still not sure exactly what I'm going to do. Maybe I'll just leave all of my fall decor up...besides I'm running out of space to store stuff! lol...
 
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!

How funny, while I was reading along, I was quietly thinking to myself, I would never have enough room to store all the stuff I made if I were you. Then there it was, at the end of the post, your running out of room to store all this stuff!! Seriously, what do you do with your normal things between holiday decorating, do you put it in a storage container, or what? We do have a newer home, and it's quite large, but we still do not have good storage...and that really stinks!!
