It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like.....Fall

The decorating is done. Whew, it's not as much as Christmas but it is a job. I wanted to get all of it done now because I'm having a baby shower here tomorrow.

We, also, have a few things planned that will take us in and out of town in the next month and I wanted to enjoy it while we were here.

I'll do a few pics at a time on the blog until I show them all.

This is our living room and front foyer.

A big metal pumpkin sets on the coffee table with a wreath around it. (Kirkland's)




A closer look at the pumpkin.


On the sofa table is a set of candles with wheat design on them. (Cracker Barrel)



I did a small Fall tree with pumpkins, picks, and ribbon on it. Ceekay and I saw this last Fall when she was visiting and we were out shopping. We both decided to replicate it. It's easy to take the Fall picks out and redo the tree for Christmas. Click on picture to enlarge.


I put lights on it and it's real cute at night.



This is a view down the foyer, taken from the family room .


A closer look at the hall table at the end by the front door. Living room is to the right and the door on left is the kids playroom closet. (shown in previous post)


I put a large basket full of Fall flowers on the top of the stairway on the landing before you continue up the stairs.


Well, that's all for this post. Have to get ready for the baby shower.

Can't wait to see all your Show & Tell's this week.

Have a safe and happy weekend.

It looks absolutely stunning!!! You did a great job.


Well, where I live we're now 'downgraded' to tropical storm warning. Which is great news from our vantage point, but where our son lives it's another story...Houston is still in line for the 'big hit' later tonight or early Saturday morning. And we still have power. I've been trying to get as much work done around the house just in case water or power goes out before this storm hits land...I'm done. All I can do that is humanly possible. We've shuttered the windows up and just wait for the worst to pass us.

Thanks again, for your thoughts and prayers.
