Show and Tell Friday: Fall decorations

show-and-tell.jpg Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home hosts “Show and Tell Friday” asking “Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there’s a story behind your special something, that’s even better! If you would like to join in, all you have to do is post your “Show and Tell” on your blog, copy the post link, come over here and add it to Mr. Linky. Guidelines are here.“

Last week I showed a couple of fall door decorations. This week I put out most of the rest of my fall decorations. I don’t do a whole lot with fall decorating, partly because it’s a busy time of year, and partly because with all the pink I have around here, fall colors don’t really “go” very well. But I put a few out anyway because I love to bring the season in. None of these things was a major expense — they’ve just accumulated, a few dollars here and there over the years.

This is yet another door decoration. We don’t use this door, but it does face the driveway and we see it coming and going.


I don’t remember where I got these little bows, but they used to go on the double doors that I showed last week. Now one is on the mantle and one is on a window.

I took several shots of this with and without flash and couldn’t get it any clearer, but this is a little scarecrow, a couple of small bales of hay, and a stuffed pumpkin on the mantle in the family room.

By the way, that clock is in the shape of Idaho. My husband is from there and his pastor did woodworking for a hobby and made this for us. Maybe someday I’ll showcase that for a show and tell. 🙂

I usually only put a couple of little things on the windowsill, but I decided to group several things there this time. I like it.

I didn’t really set out to have a scarecrow theme, but that’s just what caught my eye over the years.

I love this figurine, the flurry of leaves and the label that says “Joy.”

I also love the little strand of leaves behind it — I love the fact that they’re fall colors, but muted and pinkish so they go with the rest of the room. I’d love to find more like that but haven’t been able to yet.

You can visit Kelli’s to see more show-and-tells or link to your own.

Have a great weekend!

Update: someone asked for more details about the figureine above with the little girls tossing leaves. It is from the Vintage Virtues collection by Kathy Killip for Demdaco.

  1. I LOVE all your fall decorations. My favorites are the little girl raking/playing in the leaves, and your Harvest Time door hanger. Very cute! Thanks for sharing your fall decor with us!


  2. So who made that figurine–it is so beautiful and captures the moment!! I love the little pumpkins that are in one of your pictures–think it was on the mantle. EVerything looks great—

  3. Oh Barbara, I really like your fall decorations, too! And your comment on my sewing machine made me smile – you did not know that there were white pumpkins too and thought they were painted… No, they are real and sooo cute indeed!

    Best wishes, Anita

  4. I just love your window sill. I might even like to wash dishes with that lovely decor to look at.

    And I am into the fabric pumpkins. I need to make some of those I think.

    Thanks for sharing and for coming by my place again this week.

  5. Barbara, fall is my favorite time of year, and I LOVE the figurine of the little girl with the leaves. Your kitchen window looks very nice.

  6. Oh! I just love that little girl figurine! I looked on Ebay just now;) and they have one called joy but it’s not as cute as yours–different scene.

    Thanks for sharing Autumn is my favorite!

  9. I came over from Dusty Frame. I love the little figurine with the girl jumping in the leaves. Our little girl’s name is Autumn. That is so fitting for her. Do you remember where you got it?

  10. Hi Jen,

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

    That figurine is from a collection called “Vintage Virtues” by Kathy Killip for Demdaco. I got it from a Christian bookstore at a college in a nearby town in SC, but I don’t know if they would still have it. But I searched for “Vintage Virtues” on the web and found it here:

    It may be other places as well.

    I hope you can find it!
