In my mind I have many, many ideas of how I wish my room to look! Crafts to complete etc. I am still searching for ideas, the web is full of beautiful homes decorated for fall........ table settings, outdoor decor, Halloween parties etc. If I could incorporate some of the ideas I found on the web into my own home I would be very happy! I picked up a few things from a thrift shop last week, I will show what I have found to do with them soon!
At the moment most of my decor is displayed on the fireplace, I initially placed them there to see how they looked, with intent to re arrange them later. However its been two week....... I must like seeing them,so they will stay where they are!
Back in May after just getting home from a holiday in Luxor Egypt, the first shop I visited back in the UK had these fall welcome signs! I couldn't believe they were out in may......... originally he was going to live on the inside of the front door, its been hanging around for months waiting to be placed. In august he spent some time on a coat rack! In the kitchen, then in the living room window sill. Now here he is next to the fire.........where he will stay!
I have mentioned before my love for Yankee Candles, no fall display or home would be complete in my opinion without some form of warm, spicy, fall scent. Pumpkins, apples, pine, fruit all conjure up thoughts of fall to me. Every September my mum and I visit a UK web site for Yankee candles and stock up on the candles we think would be good for fall and winter. We each have our favourites, mine all the food scents! Pumpkin Pie, Harvest, Pumpkin Spice, Butter cream, Trick or Treat and candy Corn! We cant wait for the package to arrive, even the box smells as the post man hands it over! We are like kids at Christmas, sorting who's candle is who's, and swapping and sharing.

Here are some of the candles I have burning at the moment, Pumpkin Pie, Gingerbread, Trick or Treat........
I adore cats, on my visit to Luxor this year I found this wooden figure, I fell in love at first sight, I thought he would work well as part of the fall decorations!
One corner of the fire place...........the Pumpkin is a candle my grandma bought me two year ago, I knew it would never be lit, just to enjoy its decor value. The lit twigs you can see were bought from the same shop as the welcome sign, that shop had a good range that day! They too had been waiting for me to settle into my new house, in fact I bought them for a home I did not yet have........but knew very soon I might have.
At night I feel so at home and cozy...........Oh how I do love fall.
I hope you enjoyed viewing the little corner of my home, I will be back soon with some more baking I think, I have a craving for something sweet........
Happy Fall Everyone
