FIVE Days of FALL --- Day 1

There is just something so delightful about Fall.....
something refreshing and soothing.

Full of excitement as Fall arrives,
I know Winter will be close
behind and there is a
kind of feel in the air.

It's time to get buy and get my
house in order,
well-stocked and prepared
for Winter.

First things first -----
the house gets decorated for the season.
I use the same 3 tubs of decorations
year after year,
just arranged a little differently
each year.

Last week while browsing Walmart,
I found this beeeUtiful

I love the "Thankful" one best --
30 feet for $5.00
it's a real find.

Help me out --

I have a few ideas but would
love to know how you would use it?

Pumpkins, gourds, leaves and nuts ~~
both real and fake, find their place in my decor.

~~~a cute couple of Autumn angels with
leaves for wings
(you can find them through
Celebrating Home)
and a garland of
leaves and feathers draped
over an antique tablecloth.

The mantel clock always stands on the mantel ~~
no matter the season,
chiming out the hours and the halfs.
I just decorate around it.
This very clock stood on my grandparents
mantel -- always.
It's like the heartbeat of this house.

Simple, rustic burlap runs the middle of the long
dining table topped with a wooden
placemat, a funky Fall plate,
then my scripture cake stand
topped with a rusty cloche
that is filled with three perfect pears.

"Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed are those who
trust in Him!
They shall not lack any good thing!
Psalm 34:8; 34:10b

And maybe my favorite spot in the whole house ~~
below my loved church window
(from the church where I grew up)
hangs a German house blessing.
The open Bible on the buffet was a
wedding present 38 years ago.
Open to Psalm 112

"Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
who finds great delight in His commands."
a great foundation on which to build a home.

As Fall comes to your home,
slow down,
savor the days,
be thankful.
