Fall Table, crows and orange and black...

Good morning everyone!
We have been busy remodeling our home, and boy are things completely different. 
Just waiting on our new kitchen floor to finish up, but things have been moved, painted, stained, and changed.

I decided to throw in a couple of pictures from my fall decorating from last year in the kitchen.
Quite a bit of orange and rust and black.
This year's look is much more  neutral which I will show very soon.

 Small salt dough ornaments made with fall cookie cutters and colored dough...food coloring is from MIchael's craft store, it is much more vibrant than standard food coloring. And they also carried black food coloring which is important at Halloween!

 Crows also from Michaels craft store.

 I often pick up fall/Halloween decor at consignment or thrift stores and stash it in a box in my linen closet.... then I pull it all out at this time of year.  I'm always surprised at what I pull out because I have forgotten about it...but it is like Christmas to me!
Joining in with Susan @ http://betweennapsontheporch.net
Glad you could stop by!

I love it! All the Fall colors are so pretty! I buy things all year long as well at yard sales and thrift shops but only if I really love it! Space is running out around here! But it is exciting when you pull out something that you had forgotten about! Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Tammy

Just gorgeous, Debbie. I wish we all decorated for the seasons here in Australia but we really only do Christmas but I'm starting to change things around a little as the season changes. Such lovely photos.
