Living in Florida, I do not get to experience fall like most of you do...changing leaves, crisp air, warm jackets to knock the chill...but that never stops me from changing my decor to reflect the colors and fruit of the season.
Yesterday I had fun adding a few...simple...fall touches to my home.
This is the arrangement I made for the corner china cabinet in my dining room.
Last month I picked up this kit at Michaels and thought it would be fun to make these as we get closer to Thanksgiving....real pumpkins do not last long in the South Florida heat. So perhaps I will do this as a table centerpiece sometime in November.
And I changed the candles that I've placed on a small mirror on my coffee table to those with autumn colors.
The book pictured is Thanksgiving a Time to Remember by Barbara Rainey. Our family received it as a gift last year; if you have young children or grandchildren, I would recommend it as a way to help your family appreciate and remember God's goodness to you and our nation. It even comes with a CD of Thanksgiving songs to play in your car or home.
This week I hope to get to the garden center and choose plants to fill my front planter....seems funny that I would be planting at this time of year, huh? Our fall is your spring!
Hope you have a restful weekend... ~Debi
