Early Autumn Decor
Technically, autumn runs from September 22nd - December 22nd, but since Christmas celebrations start right after Thanksgiving, no one thinks about it still being autumn three days before Christmas!
So, in my way of thinking, all of September is autumn, especially with all the kids back in school, summer is over. Make sense?
Anyway, since I have company coming on the first, I put out a little autumn decor a few days early.
The hallway tends to be on the dark side so I used light colored autumn flowers and a white faux pumpkin. The brown pumpkins work well with the light colors.
In the living room over the mantel we added deep burgundy flowers to the pale flowers and it looks really nice, too.
Christmas tree shops has become my go to place! I got this pillow there! I also bought a turkey pillow but that will not come out until November!
Here it is in a close up shot. I'm loving this pillow!
I'll add more color as the season deepens and the leaves start to change.
For now this seems just right.

We had a lot of rain yesterday from Hurricane Isaias. We never lost power, and it was over by the time I had to pick Sarah up from work yes...
It's been an interesting week, hasn't it? The panic and buying out of water and tp is disturbing. This virus is very contagious ...
I really appreciated all the wonderful comments on my blog in the last few weeks, especially the personal ones. You're all so very kin...
