Every mama crow thinks her baby's the blackest

Since all my bloggy friends are dreaming of Fall, I thought I would jump on the band wagon. Its gray and rainy outside, which makes it perfect nesting weather in my opinion. Doesn't make for the best picture taking, though. I realized after I uploaded the picture that the crow gets a little lost in the black frames. All I did was wire a black crow to the top of the birdcage, cut a little leaf garland to put in the bottom, added a pumpkin and a nest with eggs. Simple and easy. Likey?

I likey very much-y! I still have my summer sea glass, turquoise, shells, etc. out. I'm trying to hold off until after Labor Day and the girls are back in school. You and others in Bloggy Land are making this very hard for me!

PS. I love Casting Crowns "Slow Fade"!

I LOVEY! Very nice!
You and Lori are making my house look bad though...I've been so busy making things for fall that I haven't had the chance to put anything out for decorations!

Just want to let you know my computer crashed yesterday and we just got the parts and got it up and running tonight. I might be a couple of days late on your photos...I'm just thrilled I didn't lose everything on my computer! :)
Have a great night Elise,
Robin

I love white pumpkins. In fact, I have one growing in my garden right now. It may be done growing before October, so we'll start the fall decor early too.

Adorable Elise! Think I might have to steal(oops, borrow) your little idea.
As you know from visiting with me, I can't wait for Fall.
Have a awesome day!

Love it! I have a white pumpkin growing the the back yard and I am trying so hard not to "puk it" (think the little asian man in the Green Tea commerical). I am going to have to spray paint some orange pumpkins white again as I cannot WAIT for my own to finish growing ;)
