Autumn lights.....

An outdoor lantern filled with gourds...


...simple and festive...


...to celebrate autumn!

"Thy bounty shines in autumn unconfined,
And spreads a common feast for all that live."

  1. Very cute idea! That lantern must be huge! I know they're goards but it has quite a few in it.

    I'd love for you to be able to come and sew with me. The room is certainly big enough for two, or maybe three if your mom could be there too! That would just add to the fun. I do love the flare that you have for using things you already have to create a new look. Right now we look like hoarders so there won't be holiday decorating this year. I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously through your home. I don't mean to complain though, it's a joy having Brianna's family here with us for the next four months.

  4. That looks so pretty, Heidi. I keep thinking that I need a lantern for our outdoor table... now I KNOW I do :).
    To answer your recent question, I got my trick or treater at TJMaxx several years ago.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Great minds think alike, Heidi - I just put an owl figurine in a similar black lantern! :-)

  7. While I love the black lantern filled with gourds, I adore the black lace tablecloth underneath it! Where did you find that? Well, knowing you, I'm sure you made it!
