#1 - Nothing Fallish before September 1st.
#2 - Nothing Halloween before October 1st.
I regularly break both those rules.
I don't know about you, but I love seeing how other people decorate for special occasions. It can say so much about one's style, sense of humor, and beliefs. I always appreciate seeing the thoughtful and fun ways people mark the seasons and celebrations in their homes.
That's why I asked a handful of my favorite bloggers if they would join me for a blog hop. Today we're each showing off our Autumn decorations. Get yourself a pumpkin spice anything, get comfortable, and enjoy!
Here's a look at my home during September, October, and November.
My husband is a physics teacher in an area public school and two of my children attend parochial school with one more in the Early Childhood Education classroom at the local public school. After a long summer, September really is "the most wonderful time of the year."
I made this wreath for less than $10 from items in the WalMart craft section. I love way the colors pop against our front door.
A little vignette on the front porch.
Many of September's decorations remain but the mantel gets a new treatment and many more items come out of storage.
The white board in the back is actually one of the ceiling tiles we ripped out of our basement.
The tombstone I made for my parish's All Saints' Halloween party.
The ghost carrying the pumpkin was my mom's and I have always loved it. She gave it to me a few years ago and it's one of my favorite things.
I made this wreath a few years ago but added the bird this year.
A little bit of autumn on every shelf.
The chalkboard is back in the playroom.
Halloween and Fall books in the book basket.
Even the owl lamp is dressing up for Halloween.
I found the print on Pinterest.
Once again I reuse a lot of the same decorations. My door wreath and the leaves on the mirror remain. Other items get moved around a bit and overall it feels a lot more simple than Halloween and October.
Early in November the kids and I make turkey handprint crafts with a list of all the things they're grateful for. The pictures hang in the house through November and I keep them with the decorations so each year I can reminisce a little as I pull them out of the box.
So that's my house all autumn long but I'm not the only one showing off my decorations. There's a whole group of us doing a Blog Hop today.Check out all these other lovely ladies and all their fabulous decorations.
