Everybody is talking about fall and how it is their favorite season... but, I have a confession to make ... I don't like fall. First, it makes a big mess out of my garden with all those leaves! Second, I don't like cold .... and winter comes after fall! September is definitely ok, but when it gets down below 55 - forget it. I am a Southern California girl at heart and love the perfect weather there. You are going to laugh, but I am going to tell you anyway, I used to wear long johns under my clothes when the weather got below 60. I am serious!
I do love one thing about fall, though... the gorgeous colors of the beautiful trees when I am driving around Charlotte, and in the mountains!
My un-love for fall is probably the reason why I don't have many fall decorations. I guess I think that if I ignore the season I am going to be able to put off the inevitable!
This weekend we took our oldest daughter up to Blowing Rock, NC for a quick day trip. You might remember we took our youngest daughter up there for the day last month. It is so difficult to get everybody off work at the same time!
This time we had plenty of time to shop and I found a few affordable fall decorations to add to the few that I have.
I found the birdcage, bird and faux berries in different stores.
This was a purchase from awhile back. I love Sunflowers. This is now hanging in my Powder Room.
I found a great garland in Blowing Rock for my basement family room fireplace.
I forgot that my fireplace screen is perfect for fall.
I love it.
Here's the mantle up close with the garland.
I just bought some chrysanthemums that I need plant in my containers. Hopefully, I can do that tomorrow!
Thanks so much for stopping by...
