Looking for Fall

Football has been on the tv today and the weather's been nicer. Don't know that I'm ready to get out the pumpkins, but we have planted some mums in the containers out front and changed the bucket on the front door.

I have starting taking a look at my "stash" to see what I want to use and what needs to be retired. So far one wreath has been stripped of it's re-usables and thrown out.  Thinking a few more items may join it - the scarecrows were cute, but as dear hubby said when we got rid of the too-cutesy wreath, "It's time to look like grownups".  Their smiling faces can find a new family at the Goodwill :)

I'm getting so excited for the cooler days and warmer colors!! (I have toyed with the idea of painting that styrofoam pumpkin above with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint - can't decide, what do you think?)

Oh, and tomorrow after church I'm going to look at a friend's neutral sofa, chair and ottoman...cuz they might want to come and live at my house. (Don't tell my too country plaid loveseat & striped settee). What are you doing to prepare for Fall???

Have a beautiful holiday weekend - and a beautiful Fall!
