More Fall Stuff.....

Gentle Friends, I thought I would share some more of the Fall decorating that we do around the old homestead.....

.... we usually pick up flowers for the house every week, these came from Trader Joe's - and couldn't be nicer - I usually use this cut glass vase - one of my Mom's favorites - it was a wedding present to my grandparents in 1916 and now it's nice to see it and think of her...... you know I have to light my Hallowe'en candles ......

...... since we live in an apartment building we don't have the luxury of an elegant front porch or lovely doorway....... what we do have is - we're at the end of the hall  - a blank wall and corner to decorate..... so Rico sets to work with real and artificial stuff and the scarecrows his mom has given us over the years et voila - it's Fall in the Hall.  I think we are really the only ones in the building that decorate at all for any Holiday......

You put me to shame. I haven't put up my decorations up yet. I usually have everything decorated by the first week of October. But for some reason, this year I am lagging way behind schedule.

Very festive! I especially like the decor in the hall, how welcoming to all who pass by.

I love your fall in the hall! Fall is a favorite season for me. While at Trader Joes last week for flowers as well, I stumbled across pumpkin caramel Kringle. I 'bout tripped over myself trying to get to it. I walked out with FIVE of them. Great for gift giving this Thanksgiving. Happy Fall!

Great decorating Edgar. I just love the flowers. Nothing beats having fresh flowers in a home. You and Rico keep up the good work! People that don't decorate, don't know what they are missing!!

Fabulous decorations, it's not a major thing here in the UK. Love the vase, even better that it evokes memories of your loved ones.
