Fall and Halloween Beginnings

Last year during Fall I saw these pumpkins on many of your blogs and fell in love with them. This year i decided I was going to grace my home with them. I placed them in my Swan dish and they are on the coffee table in the living room. I love em!
Being Sunday and just grazing at home, I am beginning to go threw all my Halloween Decorations. Its simple, I have to much. Much of it will go this year. I'm still on my quest of de-cluttering and that includes all my decorations. I will sacle it down to my favorites and thats it. My kids can pick thru it--the rest is going to be donated. AND.. I have alot. This year my plan is to have several big things--a few small things and thats enough. I dont know if there is such as thing as "classy scary decorating" but that is where I'm at...like Martha Stewart. I cant wait to put her witch up. I pulled out a couple of things to start placing around the house. I cant officially go nuts until after Labor Day and even then--I'm kinda pushing it. But hey, I'm one of those that feels the holidays (all of them) are way to short so I like to enjoy the decorations long before the "official" day.

8 Thanks for your comments!:

Hi Dawn, I'm with you on decluttering. I'm going through things, getting rid of or whatever. I have way too much stuff around here. I am putting some in my booth so selling it makes it nice. I love your decorations so far. I'm going to fall decorate next weekend too. Quite a few blogs and started already and I have a couple of things out so I've cheated some.

I have just started a little fall decorating and like you I am weeding out. I think it is time to bring out candles. But before I can do my porch I need to call a garage door repair man as the spring broke and it won't go up. I would say this is an inconvenient time for this but there would not have been a convenient time. Love your little swan.

Oh no! I just hate it when people start talking about fall, I'm not ready to accept the end of summer yet! LOL I guess tomorrow I will though, August is the end of summer to me.

Love the pumpkins! For the first time in years I can say I'll be glad to see fall arrive. Usually I'm a totally summer gal, but 67 days of 100+ weather has taken the bloom off the rose for me lol. We finally got our promised cold front - it won't break 97 degrees this week yippee! Have a great week. Kathy

Hi Dawn, I won't start my Fall decorating until late September probably. I think I heard a term the other day.....scary elegance...lol...that's what I am going for.

Hey Dawnie,
I need to be decluttering too, but instead I keep adding more stuff! Ha! I agree it's too early for fall but I still like the decor. Since we really had no summer it's sad for it to leave. have a great labor day week-end, Cindy
