There is nothing like having company over to get me motivated to do a little sprucing up. Add a few cool days into the mix and it is beginning to feel like fall. I love those days when the air is cool and the stew simmers all day. Oh and the smell of pumpkin bread or cookies baking - now we're talking.
For me, fall decorating is about bringing in natural elements, usually free ones, and adding them in unexpected places. I love to use pine cones, moss, and twigs.
The last time we were in the mountains, my family gathered a bucket of buckeyes because I thought they would make a nice seasonal display. Mom tells me that you can't eat them, but why not decorate with them. You can just imagine the game of buckeye baseball that took place when we pulled the shovel out to knock the nuts down from the tree.
Throws are a must. When we pile into the living room to watch movies, I do not want to go far for warmth. Lazy, I know, but this season is about being comfortable and warm. By the way, this throw was a gift from dear friends of ours who moved across the country. Every fall when I pull out this blanket it makes me smile.
Yes, every sofa needs a throw. Warmth. Comfort. Lazy.
Now it's your turn to share your fall decor. I can't wait to see what you have been up to. I will leave the link open until next Wednesday to make it easy. To join in, just add the link to your fall post (it can be an old post) so that we can all see your fall decorating ideas. Be sure to link your post back here so that your link will not be deleted.
