Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall

I love to decorate for fall...especially with little Max to supervise!  She is quite the "klepto-kitty"...when she thinks we aren't looking, she likes to drag the dolls around the house.  


A new little candlemat that I finished a couple of weeks ago.


And what would fall be without a scarecrow or two?  I just love the little "crow-shoes" on their feet!

The seasons are changing...time to drag out the sweaters, the corduroy jeans, and heavy socks.  Cleaning out the flower beds, raking the leaves, mowing the grass one last time.  We hear them before we see them as we walk around the lake...the geese flying south.  It has been a beautiful fall, the temperatures here have been warmer than usual, but today the cold front came in from the north...brrr!   Time to put on a pot of soup and light a fire in the fireplace! 
Hope your week is blessed and you find time to enjoy the changing season.

I love all your fall decor and had to chuckle at the klepto cat! Send some of that cold northern air our way...still in the high 90s here in the desert.

I love your decorations! And I love that you have a klepto kitty! My cat sneaks into my son's room and steals all the toys that belong to his cat!

I used to love to decorate too. Now I think I'm just too lazy to get it all out and put it all away when the season is over. Maybe when I quit working....who am I kidding! Your home looks so fun and ready for Fall.
