Owls in the Sunroom


I'm still loving owls this season and am using them generously in my decorating.
 I found the cutest paper plates with owls on them last week.....we made a day trip to Amarillo Tx to do a little fall shopping and I found them at Joann's Fabric.

I also found a whitish/greenish/greyish pumpkin with plenty of charm...I loved all the scratches and history on it.

 I picked up several pots of mums at Lowes to spot around this house for some fall color.
I thought my tablescape could use another owl, so I stole this white one from another vignette!  I'm bad about doing stuff like that...lol!
I put my pumpkin on a crystal pedistal and set it on a "bed" of moss..

Aren't these owl plates cute...they had matching paper napkins too!  I thought that some ironstone plates for chargers and pretty crystal glasses might dress up my paper plate tablescape.


Our grass and trees are still green here in eastern NM....no signs of frost yet.   We continue to have temps in the 70-80's everyday but there is a FEEL of fall in the air.


This is the wreath that hangs across the sun room from my owl table scape....
The colors all compliment each other and make a great fall sun room..

Here's another sweet owl that wanted to join the flock.....do owls flock????
Have you ever seen a pumpkin stem this BIG?   The patch where we bought ours had lots of pumpkins with these huge stems.  Since my white pumpkin was "stemless" the girl gave me this big stem that had fallen from another one.   I'm going to dry it and add it to my collection of stems.
