Autumn Is In The Air

August is over and autumn is almost here.  Even here in sunny Florida there's a subtle change in the wind, and you just know the crisp calm of autumn is right around the corner.  Now that the Autumn month is upon us, it's time to change out some decor to reflect this wonderful season.  Here are a few ideas...

  • Make a corn doll to display
  • Fill a basket/bowl/jar with gourds, small pumpkins, acorns, fall leaves, etc. as a centerpiece.
  • Make a new grapevine wreath
  • Hang dried ears of Indian corn on your front door
  • Don't forget to change out your candles and flower arrangements.
I haven't found the right candle yet for this time of year but I'll let you know.

More ideas and possibly pictures in the coming weeks as we head toward the Equinox.

Well hello there! Nice to meet a fellow Floridian and Halloween lover! I love the tag line "Living Life Seasonally"! I have always lived my life, season to season and holiday to holiday, so seeing that made me smile. If it weren't for 'seasons' and 'holidays' I would be totally depressed. I am a 'theme' girl. Give me a 'theme' to work with and I'm all over it. But Autumn and Halloween are my favorite by far! And I agree that there has been a slight change in the weather this week. A little cooler, a little less humidity. I can feel it too, or else I'm just an eternal optimist. :o)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello! :o)
