Hi there! Do you remember seeing the bats I made for above my fireplace? I am still loving them, and I was super excited when Mandy from House Of Rose featured them as one of her favorites from the Inspire Me Please link party! I love my bats! Do you think I could find a way to keep them and work them into my Christmas decorations? Ha!
But my cute little bats were feeing lonely. The large vase on the table next to the fireplace was really sad with just a few little cat tails in it that were not the right scale. And I mean, the fireplace is sad enough all on it’s own, with no mantle or surround to protect it.
So I gathered some branches from a recent hike we took as a family, and I made this sweet little fall garland. Now the bats aren’t lonely anymore! They are so happy, and according to Mr. 5 Year Old, they now have a tree to perch on. That makes them very happy, he says.

That about wraps up my fall décor in the house. I need to show you my front stop. I had plans for it that I never got around to finishing. But we did carve some pumpkins yesterday. That was fun for Josefine. She had never done that before.
Maybe next year my I will have more time for my front stoop.
