It is beginning to look like fall here

And I actually turned off the air conditioner!  
This is very good news indeed.  

Oh autumn how I love thee.  

I found an old bird cage at a flea market and for a couple of years I used it with it's stand and filled it will trailing flowers.  Really pretty until the wind would come blowing and it would go tipping over.  Tried weighting it down, tried tying it up and it was a 

So I plunked it down in a bed of ivy and surrounded it with pumpkins, gourds, concrete leaves, and vines.  
And for a little extra splash, I added a Dollar Tree crow to the top.

Mr. Crow actually startled Mr. Enchanted because he looked kinda real.  I tried him out first on the little swing inside, but he just didn't show up enough.  
Tomorrow I am back on the cookie train, making some cuties that are headed back to Iowa.  

If you haven't had the chance, I hope you will take the time to read
my last post.  It is something I feel so passionately about.  In fact there was a very good article on yahoo that goes into further detail.  

Thank you sweet friends!

  1. Very nice bird cage, love the crow. Unfortunately, my a/c is still on most of today, it is so humid and muggy. Just shut it for a bit. xo

  2. I like how you've used your new birdcage and the crow is great. Can't turn the AC off here yet, but at least it is in the high 80s instead of the high 90s.

  3. Love your touches of Fall! Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  10. Love what you did with the birdcage, looks so awesome! No fall decorating here yet..haven't had the energy. But hopefully this weekend I can get some things out. (I still have my Spring bouquet on my front door) bad girl!! Never got around to even updating for summer :(
