It works!!



 Our living room table has always been cluttered. I am as much to blame as hubby and the kids but I think Robbie is the biggest culprit. Sorry Robbie but you have the dropsies sweetie.Whenever he walks past the table he seems to just drop whatever he is holding.

Just putting out the witch table topper didn't seem to control the clutter. Add in the stuffed pumpkin and it is a miracle lol. This seems to be a good combo for our house. Nobody seems to have the dropsies as much anymore.

I guess I need to make a Christmas tree for December...





This pumpkin was made from a panel. I traded for a box of Halloween fabric and this fun pumpkin panel was in it. It actually looks real from a short distance. Our oldest thought I went out and bought a painted pumpkin for the table. Good job to whomever designed this panel. Great colors.

I thought it was a painted pumpkin! Very cool and very clever... (my kitchen table is the same... junk magnet, and papers, and lunch boxes - and I know there's a table runner under there somewhere!)

What a cute way to use a panel. That pumpkin is neat and the little table topper is super adorable. I thought it was painted. Did you make the pattern up on your own? So cute!

That is really neat! I thought it was a painted pumpkin at first as well. What a lovely idea.

I end up with so much junk on my table that I always end up bellowing at the Hubby. He has a 2 car garage for his "treasures" and I have my craft room/office for my goodies. PUT YOUR STUFF AWAY WHERE IT BELONGS HUBBY...

(Truth is I keep my stuff put away just so he can't borrow my good sewing scissors to cut a piece of wire when he can't find his snips. It's not because I'm organized or anything!)
