I did some more fall decorating this weekend. I love decorating with leaves and pumpkins and gourds and sunflowers and my dream someday (when I’m Martha Stewart incarnated) is to use the real stuff (grown in my own yard and fully biodegradable of course … if we’re gonna dream, dream BIG).
Today, though, my stuff is artificial (good stuff, though — full, big and a bit dramatic). I’ve got a wreath for the front door (accented by a giant mum and two real pumpkins), two long floral picks and a table scarf for the fireplace, two mini table runners and two ceramic pumpkins with jack-o-lantern faces on one side and plain on the other.
I used to have about four times as much stuff for fall — Halloween decorations, scarecrows, etc. — but now I’m down to one good box. And my goal is to keep only what will fit in that box and what will bring my joy. Maybe someday I’ll get a smaller box.
