Hi Friends! The time is here when once again I fall in love with fall. I’m so excited to share my Fall Home Tour 2017. I hope you enjoy my post as well as the posts of other amazing bloggers on the tour. Thanks so much to Angelina at Peonies and Orange Blossoms for organizing this week of amazing Fall Homes!
Fall is the reason that I could never live anywhere else but in the Midwest. Who doesn’t love when the days are 60 degrees. You can wear a soft cashmere sweater with jeans and boots. When the nights drop to 50 degrees; you can snuggle under a fluffy down comforter with the crisp breeze from open windows dancing over your face. It doesn’t get much better than that. I’m in love with all of the hydrangeas in bloom and the colorful leaves both on the trees and falling onto the lawn. Leaves burning on a Sunday afternoon while you’re watching football and enjoying a bowl of chili. It’s fall heaven!
I’m in love with my fireplace and of course, fall means that I get to start having my crackling fires in the house again. Everything about fall is cozy, homey, and family to me! Crockpot meals are on the menu again.
Given that I’m not much of a fan of orange, red, and gold, decorating my home for fall wasn’t a priority for me. So it’s interesting that this is my favorite season. Imagine my delight when blue, green, and white pumpkins became available and popular. I no longer have to paint my orange pumpkins white.
Nature also does a really good job of taking care of fall decor for me. It’s all around us in the Midwest. During the fall months, in my home, less is more! I’m content with some greenery and a few neutral pumpkins. Add in an “Apple Crisp” candle and it’s just yummy on cool fall days.
Well, it’s a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
’Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heartstrings that play soft and low…
~Van Morrison, “Moondance,” recorded 1969
The sad part is that it comes and goes just too quickly for me. Before we know it crisp turns to downright cold but then my thoughts turn to Christmas.
