Fall is In the Air.....Finally!

Wow! It's been a while since I posted! Like everyone else, I've been super busy. One thing I did was decorate my home for Fall. I just love Fall....it's my favorite season...:) I know this isn't school related, but I just felt like sharing! These pictures were all taken in my dining room. The first picture is my dresser turned buffet. Above the buffet is a picture of the nativity. I leave it up year round because it is so pretty. I bought it a couple years ago from Kirkland's. My daughter used to work there and when this $60.00 picture got marked down a couple days before Christmas, she snagged two of them for me for $8.00 each! I gave one to my sister. I have my big family bible my mama handed down to me there in the center as well my husband's late grandfather's pocket watch under the glass dome. All of the apothecary jars get filled with seasonal items, and the vase gets a new arrangement with each season as well. The smallest apothecary jar (which I got at the flea market for a whopping $1) gets filled with seasonal candy! It contains candy corn and pumpkins now, but during the summer it had salt water taffy in it! The second picture is my summer buffet, I did replace the red flowers with white hydrangeas after that picture was taken though. This will change a lot when I decorate for Christmas! I can't wait to share it with you...:)



This picture is of my lazy susan which I found at a yard sale for $2 a few years ago. It is a nice, sturdy, solid wood lazy susan. I gave it a new chevron stripe paint job over the summer. It didn't turn out exactly like I wanted, but I'll repaint it again one day! I love the pumpkin on the left....it is clear, orange glass and the stem is glass as well. I found it at Target a few years ago and fell in love...:)



This last picture is my china cabinet. It is filled with loads of beautiful pieces of china and crystal that I have collected or had handed down to me over the years. My favorite aunt (mom's sister) is always giving me pretties to add to my collection. If you click on the picture and enlarge it, you can see my gorgeous Hammersley Victorian Violets teapot in the top right corner. It is one of my most valued possessions....and was given to me by my favorite aunt...:)


Well, if you're still reading, I hope this didn't bore you to tears! I was just enjoying the touch of Fall in this hot  Florida air and the smell of caramel pecan in my warmer and wanted to share...:) Hope you are enjoying Fall in your area! Speaking of Fall, Friday evening is the Fall Festival at my school! I'll share pictures over the weekend....igf I remember to take some in the craziness of the evening...:)

Be Blessed!
