Okay, Fall, I Give Up

I've been in denial. Fall can't already be here, can it? No, it's not. If I ignore it maybe it will go away? Guess not. Don't get me wrong...I actually love Fall. It's just that Fall leads to Winter which leads to my fingers being frozen for the next few months. Good grief. For someone who lives in Colorado, I sure am a wimp! 

Well, I couldn't ignore it any longer, so I finally got out my Fall decorations this week, and I thought I'd share my "tablescape"/centerpiece with you. I bought nothing for it, so I love it all the more. I love the blue pumpkins, but I've struggled with arranging them in years past. Then a pumpkin hit me in the head (no not really-that would hurt!), and I realized that I should combine them with other pumpkins...real ones that we already had to be precise. Combine those with a votive candle set my mother-in-law gave us, a yellow piece of fabric for a runner, a glass bowl turned upside down for a pumpkin stand, and a box wrapped in another yellow piece of fabric for a shorter pumpkin stand, and I think we have a winner!
I'm loving it!
On a side note, I've been super, super busy getting ready for our road trip to Disneyland and have lots and lots to share over the next few weeks. I don't think I've ever had so many posts lined up this far in advance! There's some fun stuff ahead that involves duct tape, sewing, games, and more! I hope you'll head on back next week. Have a great weekend!
