A few weeks back I was lamenting my lack of time to bring a little feeling of Fall into my home.
I finally grabbed a few hours last weekend to drag some things from my attic and place them around my house before my daughter came home for fall break.
It paid off, when she walked in the font door with her roommate the roommate "oohhed and aawwed" and said "your home feels so good!"
My daughter beamed and so did I.
That makes it all worth it doesn't it, when someone gets pleasure from your home or garden. When someone feels the presence of God in the work of your hands, the time that you take to make it pretty. My family has always loved my holiday decorating. They don't love getting things in and out of the attic but they love the results!!
The colors of my home do not "Fall" into the common colors of the season so I have to do a bit of extra creative thinking. I have all white furniture with blue accents in my family room and kitchen and purple and green in my living room/dining area.
Not even CLOSE to orange, brown, gold, ect...But hey, I am NOT Martha Stewart!!
These purple Mums actually traveled home with me from the mountains and may or may not last until Christmas. They are fun for now!
