My mother is a decorator. On holidays and special occasions, she has all sorts of decorations to put up. They all are lovely. They are always tasteful.
I love seeing her house decorated so perfectly on every occasion. It gives me a sense of peace, of enjoyment, of happiness. Unfortunately, the decorating gene skipped this generation, and I know that my daughter is so disappointed in me. She loves to decorate too. To me, it is just way to much work, to much storage, and to much getting out and putting away.
I shocked my family this year, though. I decorated for fall. It is a first here in the Chocolatechic household. I wouldn’t have done it either, except I got a fall themed kitchen towel for my birthday, so it is hanging on my stove. Yep! That is the extent, the entirety, and the sum total of my decorating for autumn. I am so proud of myself.
Just about every blog that I have read in the last week or so have pumpkin/fall pictures. I refuse to be left out, so here you have it, my pumpkin/fall offering.
I don’t have any trees in my yard, so I had to go elsewhere to get this picture.
If your into fall decorations, this could be in your yard. It’s not in my yard because I don’t have any mums, or hay, or gourds or pumpkins or cute little pieces of metal to stick into them. I have grass, and that is fall enough for me.
Can someone please tell me why hay and pumpkins go together?
Or why it is necessary to have an odd number of pumpkins when you are decorating?
This is all of the fall I have to offer you. This is all you get! I will not give anymore. I am a Scrooge. Ask anyone.
They are lucky to have the towel.
Do you like to decorate for the different seasons?
