This September Morn' I am sitting in the dentist chair. By the time you read this I should be done my surgery (fingers crossed!)
Can you tell I love Autumn? I love the cooler temperatures, the smells, the changing leaves. the honking geese...it goes on and on. I also love decorating for Autumn. This is obviously our dining room which receives the bulk of my decorating skills (which aren't much!).
I do try to slip in some decorations in most rooms. This is my shelf in the kitchen.
My Mum and Dad loved Autumn too. My Mum always had ornamental corn hanging on the front and back doors and bowls of gourds all around the house. Often on Thanksgiving weekend (In Canada it is around mid October) we would drive down to New Hampshire (a 12 hour drive) for 4 days and enjoy the beautiful Autumn weather there. Yes, we were leaf peepers! I think that is what they are called.
This is the bowl on our kitchen table.
I purchased this mum yesterday at our local Canadian Tire. You can't tell in the photo but it is massive. We have a small hatchback and I had to put down one of the back seats to fit it in the trunk. All for $9.99.
This is in the front hall. I haven't completed decorating there yet.
This is the small table at the top of the stairs. Chuck's Grandmother painted this picture 50 years ago. We are fortunate to have a few of her paintings.
I hope you are able to get out and enjoy the beautiful Autumn weather. I know I will!
