To start out with, I have been sick all last week, but it nailed me this weekend. However, I had promised my kids that I would pull out the halloween/fall decorations this weekend. So, as I lay dying on the couch, my kids did nothing short of a voodoo dance with every instrument in the house that was apparently supposed to cure me. Sure enough, I got up and put up the decorations.
I LOVE Fall, and being that my birthday is in the Fall, I seem to receive all sorts of wonderful decorations. The browns, tans, and reds I use in my house make it SO beautiful with Fall decorations (Christmas and 4th of July, too....spring, not so much). So I actually adore pulling out these decorations. If it sits still, it gets a Fall garland laid on top of it. Gourds are awesome, too, though I need to secure some more of those from my Dad's garden. My Mom has been stuffing her hutch with gourds (on advice from her decorator friend), so I think she has secretly been hoarding all of them. I managed to produce 2 measly little pumpkins in my garden this year, and no gourds, but tons and tons of awesome Zinias. They are still coming on.
And Pumpkin spice candles/scentsy's....ummmmm! My favorite. I would use it all year, but it wouldn't make it so fun in October. I'm such a Fall geek!
