A Fall Themed Dotty Day

Can we please, please call these adorable pom poms DOTS for Dotty Hop Day?! I think they look cute enough to eat and it was love at first sight for me!! (I had to remove this weeks linky due to technical problems!)

Although it was love at first $ight, I didn't buy the pom poms until they were half off at Joann's! I hung it along my big Fall themed living room window.

I think it goes well with my new Fall themed button ball garland.

My garlands are like dots also- right? They remind of pom poms, too! Is it wrong to adore your own creations?

I added little leaf buttons to this garland but I couldn't get them to hang right... I also experimented with this garland by looping it differently and if I have time, I'm going to add more buttons and balls to this one to make it even longer.

I think my Currier and Ives dishes lend themselves well to Autumn- as do bunnies in orange sacks! (Bunny from dear Lisa at Puppyluv and cup from dear Fairytale Jackie!)

Tucked in also is a sweet tag from a few years back made by our dear Creative Elizabeth. (Do you like my chippy window sill? I don't but I'm pretending I do until I can paint them.)

And for those of you (like Elizabeth!) who like to see pictures of my world, here's a shot of the farm that I took from the top of the wheat field. The living room window that is featured in todays post is the window located in the right hand corner of the house. See my Aspens? I LOVE them! Happy Autumn!

Sorry I didn't get together a give away for this week. The Holiday days are simply flying by!

Have a great day, girlfriends!

What an awesome view Holly...I love it...I think you should show more shots around your area...it's beautiful there :) Your fall treasures are cute as can be too and so are your dotties. And nope I think there is nothing wrong with loving your own creations...I think your garlands are precious...all of the different fabrics and colors are just soooo pretty :)
Hope you have a fun and happy week!

Hi Holly,

Dear Holly~
By golly it's Miss Molly. I have been so absent. I really needed to come to your blog for a huge dose of cute. The dots did it! I have some dotty pictures to post if Molly can ever get it together. Perhaps if I play connect the dots life will fall into good order again.

Going back to work 45 hrs a week has knocked me down a bit. I'm so tired, taking some iron and loosing weight but that is a good thing. Kara's mama-makeover was good for my soul so I feel like a new Molly today.

Have a happy week and may all your tricks turn out to be sweet treats!

Jacqueline said...

Oh yes...I forgot to say...I think the bunny is a bunny from Bunnies by the Bay?

Shelley said...

What very fun dots....and you just gotta love those sale prices :)

Kim said...

Oh dear... Once again I've missed out on joining in on Dotty Hop Day. I just love your garlands Holly. They are just so cute and cheerful. I'm definately going to have to try harder to come up with a few Dotty Hop day posts to share in the coming weeks. I'm a bit limited when it comes to dottie stuff in my house, but I have a few ideas of things I can share. You might need to remind me a few day before hand so I won't forget next time..

Holly, I was just peering through your window when you read my mind and gave us the entire view. Sigh! It's just a view I never tire of seeing. Thank you! I love this fall garland with it's leaf buttons. I can't figure out how it's ends are staying put??? Very clever!
PS I am posting your box tomorrow. I again can't say enough how much I have enjoyed our friendship in this special place.

Everything looks so festive! I saw the same pom poms at our Joann's--also 50% off. They are so candy corny cute!

Jacqueline said...

Twas the night before Halloween and the farm house was all aglow with tricks and treats!

I hear your favorite treat is back home where he belongs, minus the suitcase but he's home safe and sound.

Love from over the mountains!
