It's Fall Y'all!

OK, so I have never said "y'all" in my life, but since Rhoda does over at "Southern Hospitality", I thought I would in the name of her fall decorating meme. But just this once! Afterall, I'm a Jersey girl and we usually says "yous". Imagine that, "It's Fall Yous". Hehehehe, I'm cracking myself up here.

The idea is to show the decor in and around your home. I just got around to putting a few things out and thought I would share it with you. I'm a little bummed that in England you can't find pumpkin farms where you pick pumpkins, drink cider, go on a hay ride and eat a yummy donut. I looked around and there is one about 4 hours away from here near London. I can't find a gourd to save my life either.

I got this idea of transferring our monogram onto a pumpkin from Manuela at "The Pleasures of Homemaking". I took one look at hers and knew I had to try that out. Isn't it great? Thanks Manuela. :-)

My husband and I recently bought a few copper pieces and this is one of them.

I bought mums a couple of weeks ago and they already died, at least the blooms did anyway. I dead-headed them and am hoping they will return in all their beauty.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my fall decor. It feels a little more homey now.

I usually do try to decorate ours up with some fall decor, but not this year. For some reason, I just haven't had the time or the desire. Wonder why. {wink}

Your place looks LOVELY and I love that monogrammed pumpkin!

OH I love the monogram pumpking and all of your decorations. Those pansies are so cute.

I need to check out how to do that pumpkin. I'm thinking one would look great with a "D" on it. What do you think?!! =)

Have a Blessed weekend,
