November is Here

November is here and I thought some of you might want to use the Nov-Dec. calendar girl in your projects. I'm joining Sue at It's a Very Cherry World for Rednesday. Go and check out tons of reds to get you in the spirit! Back to more fall decorating. I always try to use vintage sheet music or books in some way. I thought Turkey in the Straw was kind of appropriate for the season.
Sorry about the dark pic below, but this is in acorner and hard to photograph. I found the little brown teapot and crocheted doily at a garage sale. The little fall embroidery was from the thrift store.
I can't remember where I got the little girl, but I think she goes well with the theme. I've been inspired by Sweet Cottage Dreams and all her cute vintage figurines.
It turned from about 75 over the weekend, to cold and rainy here in Texas. It really does feel like fall. I'm loving this weather!


  1. Hi! Thank you for coming by my blog and leaving a comment. Comments make my heart sing! LOL I love the little doile. I'm always on the lookout for doilies at yard sales when I go. Thanks for sharing with us. Happy Rednesday.

  2. Thanks for the vintage calendar. I will add it to my vintage folder. Love your blog. Cleaver use of sheet music.

  3. The little girl calendar is just darling, I love her. Great idea with the turkey in the straw. Such great decorations.

  4. I've been inspired by YOU and your little figurines, Leslie! Love the sheet music, and that calendar girl with her big ornament earrings!

  6. Hi Leslie!
    Your calender is the cutest! Thank you for continuing to show the darling pages to us. I sure wish I could find one for my birth year (which is two years earlier than yours, you whipper snapper!). Putting on sleuthing cap. ;)
    You lucky, how fun to find Turkey in the Straw! So charming as a Fall decoration. I love your little figurine, she looks like she was made by a Hummel fan?
    Happy Rednesday,

  15. Hi Leslie, that little calendar girl is so cute, and the year of my birth! She has candy canes and other "Christmas" decor but fruit on her hat, how funny. I'm saving her too, thanks for sharing, Nan

  16. I'm very impressed with all of your fall decorations. How do you find the time? I can barely keep up with kiddy holidays and I do that for the grandkids.

    You would have thought that retirement would have given me more time but it seems to have done the opposite. Blogland gives me plenty of ideas but I fall short in the fallow through some how.

    Thanks for visiting my big chicken this week. I so appreciate your comment.
