If you read my blog regularly, you know I have a tray that I use as a stove top cover. I would love to have one like this but have decided that I will have to try making one if I am going to get one. And that works with my Make do philosophy this year. Don't tell Jos but he is going to help me make one. *wink*
In the meantime, I decorated my tray with things of the season. A pumpkins placed in a tipped over clay flower pot, some silk autumn leaves, a piece of lace, an iron acorn napkin ring and some berries. I even added a pumpkin Trick or Treat magnet this week for Halloween.
This year, I had a pumpkin vine in my garden. We had a cloudy and rainy summer so each time a blossom was on the vine, it rotted away. I was sure I would not have any pumpkins until Jos came in and called me out to the garden. He found one little pumpkin peeking out behind our bench. It is small but I cut it off the vine and it sits now with its big brother which I bought at a pumpkin farm.
Note to Vicki - Thank you so much for your comment on this previous post. I am not able to email you in return but hope that you will see this on my blog. You are correct that I have diagnosed with an eye disease. I am feeling very hopeful that the disease will not progress to much farther while it is in the active stages. I am not done using my eyes yet. *grins* Thank you for your words of encouragement.
