Take a break for FALL!

I love FALL!!! Have I said that before.... Well - I do! And... if you have ever been in my house - you would know that....It is FALL inside my house .... all..... year...... LONG!!!!!! (well - at least in the Family room and Kitchen) ... I JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors of fall! I love the crisp air, brisky mornings, the smells of FALL!... you know, like PUMPKIN WASSAIL, CINNAMON NUTS.... mmm mmm! I love fall foods! Like SOUPS and BREADSTICKS..... PUMPKIN CAKE! (I'm getting hungry!) It all just makes me feel good!
To me - fall says....
pretty COLORS
days are getting slower
life is slowing down
it is just ....

I like that I can start decorating for fall (more than my usual daily stuff) in September... and carry it on through November..... and then I take a little break from my FALL-ness and decorate with Christmas....
then right back to FALL!!!! I just love it!

Remember the bench that I saved from going to the FIRE pit!?!?!
Well, I spruced him up for fall...

I love my bench!
Hmm... Looks like my door wreath and frame are hanging a tad big crooked...
If I could just keep everyone from running in and out of the house...
It might stay straight!
and... don't mind my messed up mess of baby punkins...
The grand-girls were here and they LOVE playing with my punkins!
I finally gave up on making them look "my-kinda-perfect"...
I'm quite liking THEIR kinda perfect better!

I am a bit distraught...
With our recent "FLOODING" in the basement,
I can NOT find my LEAF garland! AGH!
It is really bothering me!
I need it to wrap around the stair railing to make it look a little more complete....
And then of course the ORANGE lights....
I've gotta keep looking!
It's buggin' me!
Looks like my flower pot needs some fall sprucing too!
Guess I better get on that!
Sometimes I just dislike still shots...
I find everything WRONG that I didin't notice when I was just

I love LOVE this frame & wreath!
A very DEAR friend made it for me!
And I just cherish it!
YOWZA! Crooked frame... crooked door valance...
What was I on???

and somedays... I just feel just like this...
"If I only had a brain!"
I love scare-crows too!
And unfortunately, this little guy got a bit wet with all our rain the past few days!
But I still LOVE him!
awe.... I love fall....
Have I told you that before????

Well, it's true.
