Reflections Of Fall

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Thirty five days until fall!

This has been a hot, humid, wet summer for us in my part of the Carolinas.
I, for one, welcome the transition to my favorite season, fall!

I was browsing through my posts from last year and wanted to share 
a few highlights from Fall 2015!

In August, I started getting ready to the season by crafting a few

An old faux pumpkin got a pretty, blingy makeover with toile and rhinestones,

The dining room was the first of be decorated for fall,
with A Fall Dining Table Arrangement in an old dough bowl.

After a trip to the local pumpkin patch, I added unique pumpkins in different
spots around the house!

On the official first day of Autumn, I shared the antique Icebox
decorated for fall, and a few other shots in the kitchen.

Before the season wrapped up, I invited readers into my home virtually

For the outside of our home,
I recruited Mr. Ramblings help, and one of his big green tractors!
My crafty daughter, Ashley, painted the cute pallet sign.

And A Versatile Lamp For The Seasons was decked out with burlap
 and a big sunflower for the front porch.

I couldn't let the season pass without sharing Ashley's Lilly P. Inspired Pumpkins
 Made for her apartment, weren't they precious???  :)

We had several guest parties staying at the lake during fall,
so I crafted a few Pumpkins With A Nautical Touch, to greet them on the kitchen table.

Fall decorating will be delayed for us this year.
...More on that Monday!

When are ya'll planning to start?
Under different circumstances,
 I'd be real tempted to start easing a little out this weekend!  ;)

Thanks for visiting!
