My Favorite Month

Can I hear a whoot whoot?!! October is here! Glorious month filled with pumpkins, gourds, candy corn and leaves. Oh, and a chance to decorate with all of those!

Our front door doesn't work very well for a wreath. Besides, I found that filling this watering can next to the door was a much cheaper alternative. Above is the summer look...
Now we're ready for fall.


Gotta have a little fall mo-jo


Is it weird that I put pumpkins in a nest? I couldn't figure out how to bring the entire patch indoors. Eggs for spring, pumpkins for fall? Work with me. ;)


I found this old chair rotting away in a barn. I love rustic things for my porches. I didn't do a thing to it. Something about peeling paint brings out the rustic charm. It will stay on the porch since it probably has lead-based issues.


Speaking of porches... this is our back porch dining table.

My mother bought me a ginormous (this was recently added to the American Dictionary, so cool!) bag of candy corn. I torture my children by having it up on our mantle.
Actually, I found the joke is on me, because they torture me with "can I have some candy corn" 3,458 times a day. But that's okay, because it is October and we just started fall break!

I should decorate. My kids are asking me where the pumpkins are, so if even THEY know it's time to do something, then it truly is.

Yay for Fall Break! Love the Fall decorations...now, if you'll excuse me, I need to get off this chair, go to the attic, and retrieve my FALL wreath.

And...yummy on the candy corn!

I love candy corn, almost as much as I adore October. I am so sad that it only has 31 days...and already the first day is nearly over!

I am meeting with CPQ tomorrow and we are going to find out when she can kidnap you and your mom to come over to my house for lunch...Yay!

I love fall! Your fall decor has captured the essence of fall and the cozy feeling surrounding it. Love the chair, especially love the pumpkin in a nest. I am inspired to start my fall decorating!

Hello friend! Lovin' all your pretty Fall inspiration. It's my fave time of year too. And no, it's not weird that you've got a pumpkin in a nest. In fact, it's such a clever idea! Love it.

Blessings,
Marie

Very beautiful! Love the white stems next to the yummy candy corn! A ginormous bag would be gone in a day in our house!! Enjoy!

As much as I don't like seeing summer come to an end, I also begin yearning for the beauty of fall, even at the beginning of August. Crazy I know!
I laughed at your candy corn thoughts!
God bless.

I love this month, too, except it is so busy. lol I'll live vicariously through all of your decorations because I still have seashells and candles in my decor in the dining room. lol
