A BIT OF FALL IN MY HOME;

Good morning all; I hope your week so far is going well. We are still having a bit of warm days here still. But I hope for some more cooler and crisp days soon, Fall or Autumn is my favorite time of season... just the sky seems to be more blue, the days with the clear crisp mornings just begging you too get out and take a walk, smell all the lovely scents fall. Listening to the leaves crunch underneath you feet as you take that walk... There is just something about Autumn watching all the beautiful leaves turn bright colors, flowers and plants getting ready for their long sleep. And then all the Holidays are just around the corner, with all of their changes too come; Now don't get me wrong, I do love Spring, and Summer,,, with all the awakening of all those sleepy flowers, plants, and trees to show off all their beauty. But there is just something about Fall; (sigh),,

OK now that you know how much I love Fall; I have take a few photos around my home so share... Now those of you who follow me know that we have moved to a new state, and most of our things are still back home, we have been do a little bit at a time.. I was not able to bring all my Fall decor with us this last trip... so what was a I to do????????   YES GO SHOPPING!!!  so that is what I did.... I don't know about you but I do love the dollar store,,, they do have some very pretty fall things. and then their was wall mart,,,, so on to my photos......................   I know you are saying  it's about time.... lol

This in by our fridge I had the orange pumpkin I put candy in it,,, I also had the metal tray,,, so at the dollar store I found some white pumpkins and a pretty fall leaf vine and wrapped it around them all. The stand is mine I made that, and the cloche on top is mine too... I love how the colors go with the counter top.....

more fall 007 I just adore those colors on these pumpkins,,, I really must go and find lots more....... I just might have to leave them out all year long......

more fall 002 Now the pitcher and bowl is mine, but I bought the Sunflowers and fall leaves picks at wall mart.. so I sat on the floor and took them apart so I could make them look much better in the pitcher..... sorry about the love seat,, had to wash my quilt cover and did not get it on.. Monday's I clean...

Hi, Alaura,
I love autumn, too! Halloween and Thanksgiving are two of my very favorites. I love the porcelain pumpkin candy holder, the white pumpkins and the autumn vine. All of your decorations are putting me in the mood to get mine out soon. Have a blessed week. Vicki

Hi Friend,
First of as I was deleting sites today yours went bye, oops, I'l tend to that after this. Are you now in IN? Or were you? You know thats where I am don't you? The big cake posted wasn't mine actually I found it online and the proper spelling. Yes, about those unpredictable blog girls, everyone has heard the last of me complain, except! What hurts is the blog hopping to say not to come see me! Like there mad at me but tell others I'm some demon pr something. O.K. the end of that! As for 5-0 I did cry Sunday, I really hate the age! Take care, write soon, Lori

I took my hubby to the dollar tree the other week and he could not believe it. It really is a fun place to spend a little money.

I had to laugh. I have the exact same orange pumpkin that you put candy in. I have mine sitting on my breakfast bar right now. But I put it there after post my recent pictures of the breakfast bar. Still catching up on your blog here.
