"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.”

Fall Nesting Party


Melissa is hosting us all over at her blog "The Inspired Room."





With the high for today predicted to be 67 degrees, it was time to pull out the Autumn wreath.  

The cool weather made it the perfect evening to do a fire outside...




And not to be forgotten...
 
Time to "decorate" with the Autumn color M&M's!

Have you started to decorate for the changing season?

I decorate with candy corn. I never thought about the autumn color m&m's. What a great idea! I might have some trouble here with my little 4 year old munchkins though lol they LOVE m&ms!

Your fire photos are wonderful! As for decorating with fall colored M&Ms... Get behind me Satan! I like to sometimes blame Satan for what I don't have the willpower to handle well myself. It's one of my flaws.

Oh - I forgot about autumn colored m&m's! Love them. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

The fire looks delightful - (as do the M&Ms).

I like to prepare a snack mixture of candy corn, peanuts and raisins and chocolate chips (might have to add M&M's) and set it in a clear glass canister...

Oh that fire looks so warm and wonderful. Did you roast marshmallows? I was going to pick up a wreath today and forgot. Guess that means I'm going to be making one. Yours is cheerful and bright and says autumn all over it. I'm surprised that the chill has reached way down to PA.

Oh, it feels like autumn at your house, doesn't it? How nice. We're still in t-shirts, shorts and flip flops around here. Hoping for a bit of a change soon :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings,

Today is the day! I am coming to meet the Mrs. Rabe whom I have seen in the comments section of many of the blogs that I read.

So...nice to meet you, Mrs. Rabe! I have nosed around your blog a bit, and will be sure to return for another visit. Thank you for your hospitality. :-D

Love the first photos! One of the things we look forward to is being able to use our fire pit when it gets cold!

Oh goodness I don't thing I could decorate with Candy corn or M+M's as they wouldn't last with me seeing them out in the open like that! Great idea though if you have strong will power!
