Fall is in the air here and I am enjoying every day of my favorite season! As the tree leaves begin to put on thier colorful show, I am in the mood for roasts, mashed potatoes, and pie.
While I was shopping for goodies at the Country Living Fair last weekend, I was also shopping for you! Lynne and I spotted these adorable little pumpkins at a booth crammed along with a million other shoppers! You could hardly get near the place. Lynne stood in line 30 minutes to pay for these little guys while I watched guard over our other purchases. The prize for the winning comment is the pumpkin in the foreground of the picture. It is made of dried corn husks...too cool! Don't you love the texture is has? I think its quite nice in this vignette.
Speaking of vignettes.....years ago when my kids were much younger (a-hem....and me, too!) I used to deck the house out in grand style for every holiday. No nook or cranny was left empty. I still love to decorate for the holidays, just not quite so grand. I don't have the time nor energy to do all of it, so I leave a few crannys bare, and go for a wonderful vignette in each room instead. It still gives the holiday feel I love with a lot less work! In future posts, I'll share some of my holiday decorating ideas, not that I'm a Martha, ya know...but a little something here or there might inspire an idea for you! I know that's how it is for me!
So, to enter the Fall Contest for the cute pumpkin, please comment on how you feel about decorating. What's your favorite time of year? Has your decorating style changed over the years like mine has? Comment before the clock strikes midnight on Saturday, October 9th. Happy Fall to everyone!
