what we love about Fall

So Fall to us isn't just being outside and enjoying the change of season, loving the cooler temps, gorgeous colors of the leaves and seeing pumpkins in the field.
We celebrate it by bringing a little bit of Fall indoors too...which includes Halloween. We get our wreaths and familiar scarecrow friend out to decorate our home. Will seems to remember getting dressed up last year(he was Spiderman) and is totally getting into this Halloween thing as far as knowing you go knock on some one's door and the concept of 'trick or treating' for candy. The scary parts of Halloween we try to avoid and attempt to make it more fun. Every time we are in Target and walk by the Halloween section of the store he hides his head on my shoulder as I push the cart. I can't blame him...some of those masks scare me!

My newest acquisition is this 'trick or treat' banner I bought a couple of weeks ago from a website I love to buy from...etsy.
Here's the seller Bekah Jennings:

What I love about the banner is that it's lightweight and can be hung up with tape. Makes the mantle look a little bit more festive!

Oh WOW....I love all your fun fall things!! I need to get on the ball this season. I have decorated a little, but I still have more to bring out. In addition, I need to get my kids costumes.....Sarah keeps changing her mind, so I have been holding out.

BTW, I have the same candle holders on my mantel:)

I just love how beautiful you decorate for the seasons. I used to do it but I have gotten out of the mode for several years. You make me want to pull it all out again (oh, JR is going to kill me!)

I LOVE that banner.....just fantastic!

Gail, I've been loving your fall photos this week. But the decorating? The decorating! You make me feel like a clueless, non-crafty schmuck... I am hopeless and jealous. (How's that for honesty - heh.) Your home is gorgeous. And I know what you mean about the stores in October... are they TRYING to give small children nightmares? Oh wait... yes, they ARE.
