Fall Fever

I love Fall and Wednesday is the first day of the cool, crisp, colorful season.
I thought we would go ahead and put Summer behind us a bit early, even though it is 90 degrees in my area today. Boo! I know the hubs would rather not have the abundance of leaves we will have in our yard soon but I just love the way it looks when the leaves are dressed in their best colors before they fall off in his yard. Wow!
( I blurred out our last name on the ghost for privacy reasons)
My yard decor makes me happy. It is the simple things, I tell ya!
The ghost is out a little early, but I just love it. I got it for $1 at Goodwill 2 weeks ago. It said "BOO" and "The Johnston's" on it. I spray painted it white and then repainted the "Boo" and put our last name on it...since we are not the Johnston's, of course! I plan to add 2 more pumpkins in a few weeks so there is one for each of us. Randall was afraid the ones out now will be rotten before Halloween. I got the scarecrow for my 30th birthday as a joke and her name is Mary. She is a sweetie. The 2 bundles of corn came from one of Randall's corn fields. But, the hay is from Walmart...of course.
Oh, I tend to kill mums if they are potted, so I refuse to buy one for my little "yard scape", in case you were wondering where the mum is...it is still at the "gettin place" (Yes, Julie...I just typed that!).

I always love decorating my den because that is the room we migrate to the most. Since this is now where my happy Henry crawls the most, I had to rethink my love of decorating the den. This is all the den has in it for Fall decor. It is high and out of reach! Henry's happiness trumps my decor happiness. I am a true mama now, I tell ya!

My dining room is one of my favorite rooms.
We never go in there much though. I love the natural light and the homeyness of it. I think we may have to start eating in there instead of at the kitchen bar. I love sitting at a table with family. My Mama made this wreath for me. I love putting wreaths on mirrors. It may be odd, I don't know and really don't care... just to be honest! I like it.


Our living room fireplace is one of my favorite places to decorate. Strangely enough, I like to keep it simple though. Which is odd for me. These scarecrows are it. I left the mantle alone this time. Henry does not go in here much so they should be safe. Now, I say that and I will end up picking up straw pieces off the floor later today after he tackles them both. Ha!

Here are my real live scarecrows who make our house a home, no matter the season! I have no idea why they were looking out the front window or why I took this picture, but I like it and I decided to post it. High on Daddy's shoulders is where Henry likes to be these days.

And on a side note...


We had Henry's 9 month pictures taken last week. You can go here to see a small sample of them. Lindsey did it again....incredible!


Happy Fall Y'all...a day early!
