Got back from a nice vacation last Fri & trying to be outdoors but weather not co-operating this done today in-between drizzles:

Sunflower wheel for the birdies:

Cut down one of my huge sunflowers & put under the bird arbor area:

Planted a lovely Mum in a pot, lined orange egg basket with some basket liner ...& set it here to enjoy while watching the birds:

Here's a closer view:

Remember this iron/wood wall hanger I bought late in 2007 at a flea market...well, this is my 3rd yr decorating added some faux leaves, cut some grasses & Oregano from my gardens & moved these 2 little resin critters that have been outside for some yrs now...this hangs by my garage door:

Everything looks wonderful!! I have the same little squirrels!!
What is the flower on the left of your first pic made of. Looks like metal? Did you make it. I really like it too.

RE: Fall Decor with Garden Junk

Lovely setting for the birds & tasty too! That is 1 huge sunflower!! The mum looks like it will have lots of flowers soon! Your "garden window" looks great! Should look nice even with a little snow on it!! Jan

RE: Fall Decor with Garden Junk

Those Iowa birds have gotta love you Jeanne! lol! You provide them with such a tantalizing smorgasbord. I love how you decorated your great wall hanger. Those squirrels sure look cute on it! TFS!

RE: Fall Decor with Garden Junk

I've always loved that wall hanger, such a terrific piece to decorate!

And I'm blown away by the size of that sunflower!!
hugs, Karen

RE: Fall Decor with Garden Junk

Love the dinner plate sized sunflowers!!! Your Fall displays are so artfully put together.

RE: Fall Decor with Garden Junk

Thanks, GJers...guess my "Mammoth Sunflower" seeds liked the yucky summer weather here this yr, hot, humid & rainy! LOL!

sorie..that metal flower was in the garden section of HLobby...when they clearance out that stuff for 70% off or so...I loved it ...& it "bobbles" in the wind...the birds use it alot! (like this Junco bird in April):

Jan, did you say that word, "snow!" Ugh!
Anyway, thanks for your kind comments, everyone! Jeanne S.

RE: Fall Decor with Garden Junk

I loved what you did with the wall hanger just by itself, but OMG, how you decorated it for fall just takes my breath away!! I sure wish I could make stuff look like that!!

And we won't even go there with the huge sunflower....I'm lucky if mine even stay standing through the summer & their blooms aren't even big. (*sigh!*)

RE: Fall Decor with Garden Junk

Ok, I'm going to market you, Jeanne!!! You need your own shop on etsy, a blog and a decorating show on HGTV!!!!! Everything you touch turns to .....treasures!!! It is simply beautiful! I remember yr posts before on yr wallhanging, this one, I think is my fav! (its the squirrels, no, the basket, wait, the squirrels, oh, garsh, I love it all)!!!! LOL!! And the SUNFLOWER...can you say-HUMONGOUS!!!!! Whatever goodness God threw down there, sure spilled over at your house! Do you have any pics of them in their full glory? I just got back on here, so maybe I missed that post! Keep up the wonderful work, woman!!
