We've made it to the last week in October and our fall decorations are still in a tote up in the attic... I gently suggested to my husband on around October 1st that it would be a great time to bring those down for us.... The kids less-gently urged their dad to get the Halloween stuff out, a time or two or so. I even ventured up into our attic space, only to be totally overwhelmed by the amount of stuff and coming down empty handed (and a case of the heeby jeebies. Not a fan of the attic). Soooo, rather than nag this said husband, I got around the lack of decorations on my own.
Thanks to my sweet friend Erika's idea and the plethora of shedding trees around me, I have a naturally festive mantle:
And due to some walks with a 3 year old who is recently enthralled with having pockets, we now have a bowl full of fall-ness:
And my love affair with spray-paint continues with the metallic variety and some miniature pumpkins placed around the house:
Even though we're not the most decorated house on the block, I'm actually pretty excited about this route because I'm realizing that there's nothing to pack back away! And just think about how excited we'll be next year when we get to rediscover what's actually hiding in the "Fall" storage tote after not having seen in for a couple of years! It might be a good idea to start hinting about Christmas decoration now though...
How are you decorating this season?
