Fall is my favorite season. Back to school, crisp air, a warm hearth, pumpkins, the beautiful colors. I am drawn to all the warm beautiful colors of fall, reds, browns, greens are all my favorite. I just feel so renewed in this season. I am not sure why, but I love it anyway, plus is leads on into Christmas, which is also a favorite of mine. I enjoy traditions and making life beautiful, and this a perfect time of year for that.
I decided to start with the front porch. This is the wreath I bought at a bazaar a few years ago. I just love the colors. Of course, everyone is always welcome at our house!
This is my little vintage pumpkin man Henry. Don't you just want to wrap him up and take him home? That is exactly what I did! I just love old vintage Halloween decorations. They are so cute and charming! I can't forget my little ceramic pumpkins, a Jo-Ann's purchase on clearance. There are three of them, but I often divide them up and move them around.
I did put out my Thanksgiving decorations along with fall because I want to be reminded to be thankful for all my many blessings. Sometimes I forget to be grateful for all the blessing I have and these help me be reminded of them.
This is my kitchen table, that I love to decorate. We don't eat here often, because we have a bar, but I still love to decorate it up. I am continuing to use my basket, because I just love the darn thing. In the words of Aunt Ruthie, I want to marry it! I also want to marry that super cute rooster pitcher my Mom gave me a while back. Can you believe she found that adorable thing at Goodwill? The Flowers, oh the flowers, were my special gift to myself for starting work and having the kids back in school. I found them at Trader Joe's (love that store). They are the most beautifully colored Gerber daisies with smaller yellow daisies and one sprig of eucalyptus that smells divine! The sparkly pumpkins I found a Walmart for super cheap!
This cute little pumpkin is my most recent fall addition. Picked this little gem up at Walmart for $5.00! It is so cute and after I marry the basket this little charmer is next!
For this group I got out my checkered cloth and a bit of ribbon for the plant pot. This little scarecrow is Burt. Say hi to Burt! I got him at the same adorable bazaar that I picked up the front door wreath. It was a good one! The little clay pot with fall foliage in it is something I made years and years ago when we lived in Utah. I even found the tiny little acorn on the ground when I was out riding horses. I have had that little cutie ever since!
Well that is just about it for me. I hope you enjoyed my fall decorations. I feel so alive this time of year and I hope you do to. Now go out and smell some fresh air!
This is what I do to make my home sing! Head on over to Mom's the Word and see what others do to make their homes sing!
