Fall Decorations

Woman doesn't decorate all that much for Halloween, but she does put out some "Fall" decorations. I'm not sure of the difference there. I guess the Fall decorations last through Thanksgiving, whereas the Halloween decorations really have to be taken down before Thanksgiving or your house takes on a sort of trailer trash look.

This is Woman's favorite decoration. She saw this candelabra at Pier 1 last year and thought it would look so cute with little pumpkins stacked on it, so she bought it and stacked little pumpkins on it. I'm sure Larry, the fabulous decorator / sales guy at Pier 1 would not have been all that thrilled to learn of its use! LOL! At Christmas, Woman puts big glass ornaments on the candelabra, and for the rest of the year she stacks those grapevine ball-things and candles on it. See - those decorative balls do have a purpose in life!

This is the new Autumn wreath. Woman has this wreath and the Christmas wreath, but she left the Christmas wreath up all year this year because she could not find a summer or spring wreath that she liked. Also, the Christmas wreath wasn't really "christmasy," so it's not like it looked weird or anything. So says Woman.

Woman put some pumpkins and mums on the front steps too. You can't really see them all that well in this photo, but trust me - they're there. The pumpkins are orange, and the mums are yellow.

She also put together some Fall hanging baskets. I guess they're Fallish, because they are not pastel. I don't know flowers.

This one is definitely Fallish, because there is a mum in the center, and nothing says Fall like a mum stuffed in a pot.

And just for RPM, here is a picture of Nate. See - he and Buddy look nothing alike. Nate wears a hat! Buddy wears no hat!

    Oh, Norman, your house looks nice and Fall!

    Nate's nose is also smaller than Buddy's!

    I enjoyed seeing your Fall decorations. I like the little pumpkin idea.

    That is a GENIUS idea for the candelabra. We've got one that sits empty all year long because I have no cool ideas.

    I like Nate's hat.

    Norman, your Woman's decorations are lovely. Your house is lovely. I got you a surprise today and you're going to talk sassy to it! Don't share it with Buddy or Nate. Nate looks like a farmer but Buddy does not look like a farm dog!

    I LOVE Woman's use of the candelabra. She really got her money’s worth with that purchase.
