The Sights and Sounds of Fall


The first day of fall made it's entrance last week--there is so much goodness to be associated with a new season and much fun to celebrate. At our household we indulged in a bit of festivities and had a lovely first day of fall, with simmering beef stew, hot cocoa with multi-colored marshmallows and taffy apples for dessert. We have our pumpkin spice candles glowing and lights shimmering through pretty leaf garland. A refreshing time to mark the new season and create an atmosphere of coziness throughout the home.


To place pumpkins strategically in nooks and crannies--


And hand make some simple candle decorations to adorn the table.


I so love watching the leaves glide and  float down from the trees.
The rustling of them as you take a walk through the neighborhood giving you a great appreciation for God's creation. I also love seeing homemakers get creative with the natural resources around them to add that special touch of  homespun beauty to their homes.


We had never really celebrated fall much in my childhood home,
but I want every season to be full goodness for my children to look forward to with traditions and fun that they will pass on to my grandchildren.




However you celebrate, make sure to make those special warm memories of a fall atmosphere with your family!

(More fall inspiration to come!)

  4. Fall is my favorite season and is always so welcome to us Southerners who have endured triple digit temps during the summer months. I don't decorate much but do love my coffee table arrangement and the front porch decorations. Thanks for sharing your Fall inspiration.

  5. Wonderful! I love fall decorations. I keep hoping the heat will die down here(it's close to 90 today), so that I can start getting in the fall mood.
