Pumpkins, Bottles & Leaves equal a Tabletop Tuesday

I am joining Marty from A Stroll Thru Life for TableTop Tuesday. This is the area above my stove/oven in the kitchen. After we purchased our home in 2000, we removed the cabinet doors from this area and made a display area. Gotta have places to sit "stuff" right??? I have been collecting Longaberger Baskets for about 20 years. I have not purchased one in several years, but I still decorate with them. Did not realize how "off-centered/unbalanced" or how yucky this basket arrangement was until I saw it in a photo! Well, that's an easy fix! Anyways, the main focus is on the top shelf......

The heavy bronze plate was a steal at a local antique store for 1 buck! Just perfect for fall decor!

All of the old medicine bottles were found in our backyard while digging around. Makes you wonder what went on back there years ago.......Many years ago, there was an old house here before ours was built. Don't remember it but that is what we were told. I have lived in this area all of my life!

Various pumpkins from Wal-Mart and the Dollar Store

More medicine bottles from our yard, cute little squirrel (which we have All OVER our Yard!) and lovin' my new pottery jar from Hobby Lobby....note to self.....gotta get more of these in different shapes and colors!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my little nook of fall decor in the kitchen~ Be sure to check out all the other talented bloggers! Happy Fall Y'all~

Fall means Apple Pickin' Time......

The other Sunday, we made to LONG journey to our local orchard that is about 15 mins away from our house. The orchard has a variety of fruits according to the season. Right now, they have an assortment of apples, sweet taters, and pumpkins. All of the products have been picked for you.....all you do is grab what ya want! We choose an assortment of Granny Smith, Yellow delicious, and Rome Apples (already had some Gala Apples). Also, you can find apples fixed different ways: dried apples, carmel apples, YumMy apple cider, & YuMmY frozen apple cider slushie. A gallon of apple cider doesn't last but a few days in the Barnett house, and of course we each had a frozen slushie for the ride home!~
