Welcome fall. How I've missed you! Come inside and stay awhile!
We decorated our home for fall on Tuesday. Yes, the day after Labor Day. Every year I find it harder and harder to wait! First we gave the house a good dusting. I know it seems strange, but I like to do that before I put up seasonal decorations. Flynn loves to dust! Really. And she does a good job, too! After we dusted, we brought up the autumn totes from the storage area and got busy. I leave these decorations up until the end of November. At the beginning of October I add in the Halloween decorations, and then in early November I change the Halloween things out for Thanksgiving ones.
I'd like to give you a little tour of our country home all decked out for fall. Before I do, however, I would like to apologize for the picture quality. A photographer I am not. For those of you who are, thanks for sticking with me!
This is the table in our mudroom. The bowls are for keys . And the basket holds Kirby's leashes.
Here is our fall candy dish. It sits on the kitchen table. I don't keep a candy dish out all year, but there is something about those cute fall wrappers! They get me every time!
This is the fall mantle. 2005 was the year we built our home.
