It's Fall Y'all!

Well hang on folks, the Holidays are on their way! All of a sudden it's like the Bullet Train, Halloween bam! Thanksgiving bam! Christmas bam! Wasn't this an early start?? I mean with all the postings on Facebook, Pinterest and other Bloggers all putting the pictures out there, it's hard not to get caught up in the whirlwind! I just started this week getting all the Fall and Halloween decor out, I don't have kids at home anymore, and  with the g-kids now in their late teens, I still  like to have a few of my spooky things sprinkled around the house.When I think of Fall I automatically have the colors of the season running through my head, golds, browns, oranges and terracottas, sage greens and burgundy, so with that being said, what is the deal with all the white pumpkins?? It all looks so sad in the homes, I mean a display with them added is fine, but to go all white? It just negates all the things fall has meant to me, where's the warm colors? Well I'll tell you where there at, right here at Renas! Oh yeah baby, I've gone Fall Color Crazy! LOL

My Halloween Mantel 2013, I morphed 2011 and 2012 Mantels and this is what I came up with. Well I just didn't want to have to buy anything new, so I just recycled! Well I did add the birds nest I found on the front walkway after a storm, and my little terracotta pumpkin that I've had for so long. The Bike Rider is a sculpture that I found years ago at Goodwill.

I think my Moss Angel is keeping the Witch in check!

I've had the pumpkin candles for about 20 years! Love my Raven with the bird nest.

Dining Room is all ready for Fall too, gave my Egret a new fall Do, and added a small table scape at the end of the Dinning table.
After Halloween I will take away all the Spooky stuff and add my Thanksgiving accoutrements!
Isn't this just the best time of the year, cooler temps make it such a great transition in to all the Holidays, with Halloween just about here, I've gotta get some Chocolate..er Candy!  Have Fun!,  Trick or Treat Y'all!
