A Touch of Fall

I'm in the autumn mode, as many of you probably are. This morning, the air turned crisp and cool and I had to get out my fall decorations. I don't do a lot of it, not nearly the amount I do at Christmas, but I like to add a little touch of fall around the place.

A few weeks ago, I saw this on Pinterest and decided I want to try to do something similar.
I scoured the flea markets for a rooster I could feel comfortable buying. Every time I found one I liked, it was from $25.00 to $65.00 and that just wasn't in my budget. Low and birthday...I found this lovely little man for $12.00. I grabbed him up with my birthday money.
I got out the rest of my supplies...
 and went to work. This is what I finished with.
I love it!!
Yes, that's the table that still needs refinishing.... It's still on my to-do-list...But in the meantime, my rooster is enjoying his view.
I also found a wonderful solid wood drop leaf table that I brought home to use for a cutting table. Needs some work, but when I get her fixed up, I'll share the before and after with you.

Happy Fall Y'All!!

All concentration left me when I read, "the air turned crisp and cool". What is this crisp and cool? I don't think we have that here in south Georgia. ;)

Your little rooster looks so very Fall! He looks almost real in the distance shot of him. Has LMW pet him yet?
