Take a skip through “blog land” and decorating for Autumn has been up
since the beginning of September. I just hopped on the bandwagon…
The bat sign I actually bought at a toy store in Paris years ago.
The French were unfamiliar with our Halloween and
there was a demonstration against it by high school students in Place St. Augustin
near where we lived. Something about devil worshipping…
I wanted to march holding a sign “No, it’s just about the candy.”
I think it is gaining a bit of popularity now (and selling candy for the grocery stores).
The terra cotta pumpkins were from Target a few years ago…
don’t you miss their garden section?
Our “water” view below from these steps (nothing to do with Fall decorating),
I just appreciate it…the Pacific Ocean is just beyond the peninsula where
you see the houses. We can hear the waves at night.
Please come inside…
Pumpkins from the market and
branches from the flower stand. If you are lucky enough to have Fall
colors outside…clip some branches and bring them inside. Like Upstairs Downstairs did here.
There is a favorite little store called “Urban Gardener” that I like to pop into…
Yesterday, I treated myself to a delightful smelling candle
from there called “Pumpkin Glass.”
I’d like to give YOU one too, so that your home will smell wonderfully
for Autumn and silently you will think…
“ahhh..classic casual home or is it
casual classic home or whatever…smells niiiiice!”
