~ Before It's Put Away ~

These past few weeks have just sped by so quickly. While in the kitchen the other day I noticed the pumpkin on top of the refrigerator and realized it's almost time to put it away. I'm already thinking ahead to decorating for Christmas, as I know many of you are. Have you started putting things out yet, or are you still in the planning stages?
Many of you may recall a while back I found a few Silver treasures for a song and a prayer. You can go HERE to see that day in action. :-)) When I display items I like to group like things together, it makes more of an impact. Although some of the items I found that day aren't in this vignette, I brought in other treasures. While taking pictures the first 2 or 3 I didn't care for at all, this is with the light on. The walls and book didn't seem to be so grainy...
This is with the light off... too grainy for my tastes. Do you have trouble with your pictures taking on a grainy effect or is it me and my camera? I'll be anxious to have your feedback.
The twisted silver goblet was such a find...
When getting out the pumpkins this year I wanted to kick things up a bit and display them just a tad on the "different" side. Normally they'll rest on books, a tabletop and sometimes a flower pot and a bit of Spanish Moss holds the pumpkins. When I found the silver urn a while back I knew it would be perfect for pumpkins, Christmas decor all sorts of things.
I've had the blue vase for years now, it's gone out to the garage sale box over a dozen times and I've pulled it out. I think it's trying to tell me something don't you? Anyhoo..... I think it's found it's forever home. :-))


Lights off...
Lights on...
I'm sure many of you are rushing around making all sorts of preparations for next week. Don't you love preparing for company? Hearing laughter in the house always makes my heart sing..... Although our gathering will be very small love will fill the house.
