Welcome Fall Entry Vignette

Although the weather outside is still a tad bit warm and muggy, I am 

in full blown Fall mode.  I have decided that if I wait for the weather

to tell me it is Fall, I will have to wait for a very long time and, I am 

just am not willing to wait.  



And so I shall begin to welcome Fall.  I have many ways to 

welcome Fall and since I am admittedly a bit of a pack rat, thanks to 

age and saving many, many treasures. I no longer have to purchase 

any decorations. (Unless of course I feel as though I must!)  Just 

another great thing about getting older, I have stuff!

All of these marvelous orange pumpkins, golden baubles, 

copper whatnot's, burnished leaves, and tattered burlap reside in a 

very special box in the attic marked "fall."



I must tell you, that to those around me I appear rather matter of 

fact about the business of decorating, but deep inside me...well...I 

am smiling-giddy, happy!   I have always loved to decorate, ever 

since I was just a child. 





You see, my parents had an old travel trailer.  It was a rather beat up

old vacation vehicle, but it did serve it's purpose.  However, I wanted

to spice it up a bit.


So, my Mom let me spend some allowance money on crepe paper.  I

suppose by now you are getting the picture...not a great one is it-oh

my...

Well with pink and blue crepe paper, scissors and tape in hand I 

began to make curtains.  I am sure they were just lovely-wink...




So a tweak here and a tweak there I found myself in the midst of 

enjoying decorating. Those childhood days are now just a fond 

memory.  Once a girl, now a woman who has a passion for creating 

spaces that reflect love, joy, happiness and inspiration.


So, please join me in my reflective mindset, welcome Fall, embrace

lost youth, give gratitude where it is do and for certain never ever

take the love of crepe paper lightly!



I am so excited to share with you that I am going to have my first

giveaway!! Yippee-it will be this week and it is a Halloween Wreath!
