Welcome to my blog. I'm probably very much like all of you who love the needlearts. My life revolves around family, friends, home and all things that help to make for a more contented life. When time allows; cooking, gardening, decorating, and collecting are my joys. I look forward to sharing all of these things with you. I also hope to keep you up to date on what is going on at Homespun Elegance, in regard to the needlework designs and the "Plain & Fancy Wares" that we offer.

Wishing you "Many Happy Stitches".

A Little Autumn Decorating

Good Evening Everyone!
I took a few minutes today to do a little
decorating outside for one of my favorite seasons.
It is suppose to be really ugly here tomorrow so I decided to 
take advantage of the beautiful weather.  I still want more 
pumpkins, especially white ones, but I haven't found any
 yet.  I have much more to do, but at least it is a start.

Don't you love this flag.  Hollis gave it to me.
Can't bring myself to throw away the summer plants just yet.
Found this wreath at Michaels.
Just love it and my 40% off coupon made
it all the better.

 Have to bury these down in the dirt a little.  They look
a little strange sticking up out of the urns.  
Plus, I like to fill in around the bottom with
spanish moss.
Sweet potato vines and pumpkins look pretty
good together.
The beginning of the inside decorating.  Love to stack
my orange hued tomato pincushions.
Hope to be back tomorrow with some more
decorating and some "little glimpses" of new designs.
Many Happy Stitches,


  1. I love your decoration so much ..happy Sunday xx

  2. Your outside decorations are nice.
    Love the tall orange/green Pumpkin.
    I too, like the white ones, but haven't found any here yet.
    It's looking a lot like Fall at your house. :)

  3. Looking Good ... LUV the Fall. Mee too, trying to get some decorating done. My bum knee is really slowing life down A LOT. Such is Life.
    It all is simply beautiful inside and out.
    Have a Blessed day, Peace, Barb

  4. Really lovely decorating Sandra! I love your kitty pillow. Which design is this from?
