Feels Like Fall Y'all

This GoRgEoUs weather we are having has got me in the mood for fall!! I pulled out all of our fall decorations last weekend and have really enjoyed decorating the house with all the rich harvest colors of autumn. So many things have changed this week at our house along with the weather...warm jammies are being worn, soup for dinner, jackets on in the mornings, nightly walks being taken BEFORE 8:00 p.m. (b/c we don't sweat to death anymore), and JEANS are actually being worn! Of all the seasons, fall and spring tie as my favorites. I love sunny, but cool days. It's been really fun to sit outside on my swing and watch Cade play in the yard for longer than 15 minutes at a time. Just the other day we spent almost an hour on the patio, playing cars, golf, and baseball together during Gracie's morning nap. Ohhhh, so happy to see you Fall :)
Looks like Fall...

I made an arrangement for our mantle with berries, pheasant feathers, fall leaves and sunflowers to match our family picture. Bought everything last week at Hobby Lobby. They were running a half off special on florals/fall, so my grand total for all the pieces was less than $40! Those pictures did kinda turn out dark, so I'll try to post more soon.
Now, if I would have remembered my camera...I would have some wonderful pictures to show of a 50th Birthday party and Gigi's favorite reading buddy!!! I am so mad at myself for forgetting the camera-s. Both of them were in the same bag! ACK, I think my brain went out the birth canal with my children!!!! Hopefully it will find it's way home soon from Dallas and I can post more pictures. Till then, I guess I'll work on a few more fall projects for the house!

Beck, on your kitchen counter - is that a gourd with a sunflower? Very unusual (in a positive way). I love the arrangement above the mantle as well. Great job! I went to a friend's house last Thursday and she had decorated for fall as well. Guess I need to get away from the PC and start fall decorating. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.

Ha! Hey Janie, thanks for the funny comments...it's actually a pumpkin with a little sunflower arrangement tied with raffia ribbon! I've had it for a couple of years! There IS a little green gourd in front of it though, just lying on the counter :)

Loved your mantel decor-- so pretty! You gotta love a Hobby Lobby sale-- they really know how to do it! You made me realize I need to climb into the attic and get my fall stuff out! Fun!

I've been having thoughts about pulling out my fall decor. You are much more on the ball than I am though. I'll probably just keep thinking about it for a few weeks!
