Crocheted Pumpkins In My Fall KItchen


 Good Monday Morning ! I am taking you on a little kitchen tour today of my Fall decorating. I made those little white crochet pumpkins , they are so cute and fast to make ! I have a silver tray that I used chalkboard paint on ( got the tray at Goodwill) .. I used that as a base for a cake stand with pumpkins and a silver bowl ( from Goodwill) that I placed raffia in some fall leaves and the crocheted pumpkins.
 
The apple cider sign ( a gift from My Connecticut sister in law) , the cute pumpkin plate , and some fall leaves and berries with a burlap bow, are decorating my shelf.

 The top of my hutch got decorated with a fall garland .. love the sunflowers, and another chalkboard painted tray for the Goodwill .

 My tiered wrought iron basket got a velvet pumpkin and some fall florals in the bottom and a basket of dried hydrangeas in the top

 
I love these little pumpkins in their silver tray .. To make the pumpkins use a size H hook.. chain 16 single crochet in each chain .*.chain 1 turn.. single crochet in back loop only across* ..repeat until   you have 26 rows.. slip stitch together to form a little tube. Sew up bottom end , stuff , I used a stick for the stem . sew up top of pumpkin with stick inside. Use green yarn , chain 4 slip stitch in first chain.. to make a loop. chain 8 sc in loop 8 times. Sew to top.

 By the sink I have this vignette ,the vintage scale with a wire cloche , There is an owl mug under the cloche surrounded by dried hydrangeas. A sweater pumpkin, sunflowers, a fall towel and 2 little owls complete the vignette. Still picking zinnias ! Love them !

 On the kitchen  table I used my Fall Subway Art Tablerunner   ..An owl cookie jar on a pedestal with fall leaves and mason jars filled with candy corn and candles.




 
This weekend we went down to Kentucky to go to the Uk game.. My son is #90 , he is redshirting again this year , but at least this year he gets to be on the sidelines .. He is chasing his dream and we are supporting him all the way ! Hopefully next year it will happen.
 The stands were packed and we were in the 7th row.. I couldn't resist taking some photos of the cheerleaders "flying "!
 
Have a wonderful week ! Thanks as always for stopping by and your nice comments!

Your fall decor is wonderful, Priscilla! I see you like roosters, too--my sisters decorating theme in her kitchen includes lots and lots of roosters...

So glad your son is inching his way toward playing for KY--will keep my fingers crossed that it will happen for him next year :)
