Well...I just could not leave it alone! For the past 3 1/2 years, I have not decorated for fall on the exterior of the cottage and barely anything on the interior.
I guess I felt I was just too busy, I was only living here for a short time and I should concentrate on getting the big house ready to move into.
All of these reasons are legitimate...
I will be living here for another winter and really do want it reflect my love of the season! I also just recently had an epiphany...
due to a back injury I have had to spend my weekend on the sofa with a heating pad. ..
I have been so... bent on moving HOME.
I have not been thankful for the little cottage.
If it had not been for the cottage, we would be living in the total chaos that we refer to as the big house!
(Thank You God)
We have a very wonderful little place to retreat when we are done working for the day!
Like all of the vignettes I design for the store in Tipton...
I just had to keep adding to it and
I even gave it a name
"A Novel Idea for Autumn"
Of course...My supervisor was ready for a nap so before he jumped up on the settee, I took his picture!
This is a closeup of the grapevine garland I put around the door! I cut fall leaves from book pages and attached them with tiny clothespins!
The giant grapevine acorn and these pine cone lights just came in at the store...they really look amazing at night along with the battery candles I placed in each of the lanterns.
I feel like I'm home now...I thought you would enjoy the view! I hope you have a great fall season and remember to Thank God for the little things.
Au Revoir...Autumn blessings to one and all!
