Happy Fall!

I'm starting to get into Christmas mode so I thought that before I do, I would share some Fallish photos from around the house.
Isn't this basket neat!? I think that it used to be used as an old knitting basket. It's pretty big and what I love about it is that it's black!

This sour cream bottle is rare because the lettering is orange. Most milk or cream bottles are red.

I think that I posted this little orange basket last year. It's a small golf basket!

This round braided thing (I don't know what it's called) is on a tray on my dining room table. My grandmother made it. She used to make her own braided rugs so it's sort of a miniature version of that. The fabrics used in it were whatever textiles she had around the house an no longer needed..included some of my Grampy's old shirts!

That's about it for now. I am hoping that while all you lucky ladies are going to Silver Bella this week (and yes, I am jealous of each and every one of you!) I will be trying to catch up on some of my own crafts as well. I'm looking forward so some fun Christmas projects I have in mind!
