Autumn Anticipation...and a Contest!
Oh I love the first cool crisp days of early fall! And that's what we're having now! We went to the lake on Saturday night, and I was freezing the whole time. I need to pull out my sweaters! This week Melissa at The Inspired Room is having a Fall Nesting Week, so I was inspired to redo the wreath on my door from neutral to more fall-inspired. Here is the before picture (read about it here): And this is what it looks like now: Please ignore the green painters tape on the inside of the glass. I really want to finish painting the inside of the door today, or at least this week. You know, I've never really decorated for fall before. I usually do something for spring or summer, but before this year I didn't ever do much seasonal decorating. In fact, I didn't really decorate my house at all until last spring. I probably won't go all out in gorgeous spectacular fashion like some of you with your dollar tree pumpkins and "spooky" decorations, but I want to do a few more fall things which I will of course post about. For example, I need to think of a replacement for my Summertime banner. It was inspired by the George Gershwin song that I love, but I don't know what word(s) to replace it with. I want something that conveys the warmth and coziness of home, but I don't know the exact words. Please comment with all the suggestions you can think of! Maybe I'll send a small prize to the winner? I think I'll do that. So if you leave a suggestion for what word or words to put on my new banner, make sure I have some way to contact you.
