Decking the Fall Halls

Oh, the season is upon us in our house! October 1st is coming up on Saturday, and the stores are chocked to the brim with fall decor, so I decided to go ahead and adorn our home with harvest time pretties. 

Do you enjoy decorating for the holidays? I love any occasion to decorate or celebrate. That's one thing about facing grim circumstances, it forces you to live joyfully and celebrate all things. I think it's glorifying to God when we take time out to just live peacefully in the moment. So, that's what we're going to do at our house.

Now, some might think that I'm a bit premature in my decor, but, I don't do Halloween. It's not that I'm totally against it, or anything. I just don't like all the witches, skeletons, ghosts, etc. Plus, this decor can stay up until Thanksgiving. So, I get a lot of use out of it. Make sense? 

I'll give you a few peeks. . . 

This will be the first use for this Thanksgiving tablecloth that my grandmother embroidered for me. It says, "Let us give thanks for all that is on our table."


This is the front door. Hopefully, with time, those mums will come into full bloom.

And, that's all folks...

Actually, there are a few other little fall touches throughout the house, but I didn't take pictures of them. Now, if we could just get some fall temperatures. This triple-digit temp doesn't feel too fall-ey.

Love the decor. I feel the same way about Halloween. I'm not against it, but we don't really celebrate it.

We had triple digit temps today in Central Texas too. Hopefully, after today it will be over.

I'm with you- we must celebrate the seasons while they are in front of us. Your home is lovely, and you have a beautiful decorator's touch! Your decorations put me in the mood for fall :)

Beautiful, as always! :) And I totally know what you mean. The heat is putting a damper on my fall mood!

"...facing grim circumstances..."? I pray not! Please tell me you don't mean....
