The trouble with leaving for a trip in early October is that I'm just not ready to go full-fall in the decor line. But when I return the leaves will have disappeared from the trees and it wouldn't surprise me if we had an early snow within a week or two of getting home. Or it could be 60. You never know.
But I didn't want to leave a summer house for my wonderful house sitter, Jan. Nor did I want to return to lavender hydrangeas and summery stuff myself -- especially with an art show coming two weeks after I return and Thanksgiving shortly after that.
So, a little bit of fall in the house. Not a lot. Nothing new (unless I bring it home with me). Lots of wreaths, on china cabinet doors...
...and other places. (And I bet you've seen all of these before, if you've been with me quite awhile!) The post showing our day at Southern Exposure when I made the arrangement below is HERE. Definitely worth a visit if you are craving beautiful fall color at my favorite place in the world! At least Michigan. Maybe the world!
My massage therapist, the Divine Sarah, gave me free-range hydrangea cutting, so some dried hydrangeas are flanking the Greeting Angel.
Hydrangeas from my more sparse bush are on the table. (I actually filled up that dead-spot in the middle after I took the pic!)
I pulled out my copper for the mantle.
And moved the cotton over there, too.
I did pull a few pumpkins out, mostly so Jan could enjoy them. I'll probably put them away the more Halloweenie ones right after the holiday. Maybe I'll show you those a little closer to the season! Apart from a few smalls here and there, I think this will have to do for now.
...she says today.
