It really doesn't take long for me to start thinking about apples, pumpkins, hay bales and scarecrows once school starts.
Fall is a big season in the blog world!
It's like the "season" on Downton Abbey.
Bloggers are having parties and blog hops all displaying fall perfection. They are showing off their homes on fall home tours. They are pulling out all the stops in order to create the new "it" pumpkin!
Will it be bigger than the dryer hose pumpkin?
Will it cause as much of a stir as the canning jar lid pumpkin?
Will it even be orange?
I feel so much pressure to have the perfect fall porch pin
or the perfect fall mantel post.
Dare I say, I'm not looking forward to fall?
I used to cover just about every surface with fall embellishments.
There was smattering of leaves, acorns, squirrels and burlap
fall is merely a shadow compared to the real decorating season - Christmas!
I'm tired just thinking about it.
Jim died last fall and I don't look forward to those memories. I really am okay and I've moved past the grief but I don't think I'm ready to see orange leaves quite yet -
not quite yet.
Fall, Christmas, winter, Valentine's Day, Easter are all reasons to decorate. It feels like summer is the only respite from the constant change.
The decorating seasons just go on and on and on and for some reason I'm not feeling it.
Maybe that will change once Pumpkin Spice Lattes start to permeate the air.
We'll see and so will you if the creative juices start flowing.
