After many days of 100+ weather, it rained yesterday and didn't reach the century mark! So I decided to celebrate and decorate the small table in the breakfast nook. The pumpkin sits on a cast iron lampbase my mother rescued from a junk pile in the 1950s. I use it as a candle holder but decided it would be a perfect base for the pumpkin. The glass candlestick is one of last week's Goodwill finds ($1.99). I made the leaves a few years ago on my Janome 11000 embroidery machine. Small glass pumpkin is from a glass factory in Louisville. To complete the vignette, I added my antique celluloid squirrel with rhinestone eyes.
P.S. We will be back in the triple digits next week!
