A Few Fall Touches

With everyone else doing their fall posts, I was beginning to feel a little left out.

It's bad enough that I have to look at all of your beautiful houses while I'm walking around here still trying to unpack boxes and try to figure out where to hang pictures while attempting to keep up with everyone's laundry. Now, I feel completely behind in the fall fufu process.
So....I managed to pull a little of it together. Just enough for one post and to be able to hook up to The Inspired Room's Mr. Linky.

I feel better now.

Here is a glimpse of fall in our home (even though it's still 90 degrees outside).




This little display is in the kitchen. I just love the cream pumpkin.



This is in the dining room.


I just love using shelled nuts in fall displays. (I didn't notice the stamps on the walnuts until I looked at the picture - oh well.)


The china belonged to my husband's mother. He inherited it when she past away. He was 16 at the time and it was 21 years ago yesterday so it's very special to us.

That's about it for the fall decor but I will give you a sneak peek at my new "toys" that arrived the other day. Can't show you the whole room until I figure a few more things out.







That's all for now. I'm off for more unpacking, arranging and re-arranging.
