October Kitchen Window


My kitchen window for October is all about the wonderful works of Kimberly from The Red Cupboard Post. The beautiful colors Kimberly hand dyed for this hooked mat are hard to capture in a photo, but they are magnificent in person.


Also in my window are two of Kimberly's punch needle works...patterns by Lori Brechlin from Notforgotten Farm. Again, the colors are so autumnal and rich. 



I did not want to break up the grouping, and could think of no better place for this gathering than my window. My window...above my sink where I spend so much time each day. 


My very favorite pumpkin is there as well. Annie made this ceramic fellow when she was in school and he is one of my most precious possessions. 

*************

Our Annie is a spider fanatic...not the real kind, the funky, decorative ones that show up this time of year in all sorts of forms. Because she gets such a kick out of them, I picked up a set of spider lights this past weekend.


They are a fun addition to our October window...especially at night.


YIKES!


Armed with stickers of her favorite creepy crawlers, Annie decorates every surface that will support them.

...the sink faucet


...on the microwave


...on the stove...they're everywhere.


Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful time of year! Watch out for spiders!

Enjoy the day,
Robyn

  9. Oh Robyn, you window is wonderful. I love the colors of fall the most and the needlework you have on display is perfect. Of course, Annies art work takes the spot light.
    Those spiders are great for Annie, but my Sandy does not like them at all. I personally think the tarantula is rather cute, all nice and fuzzy...hehehe. Needless to say, my Sandy thinks I am a bit goofy.

    Enjoy the month with Peace and Blessings for all, Barb
