A touch of Autumn

I added a little Autumn decor to my surroundings this week. I bought some mums for outside, added my little scarecrows to the hanging box and hung up a little pumpkin trellis that I found at a yard sale this summer. All that remains to be done is the pumpkin carving with the students: I think I'll do autumn pumpkins rather than Jack-o-Lanterns and put battery operated lights in them.
I've hung my usual fall-colored wreath on the door; and inside, I've put out all my chatchkas.

Isn't that spider web cute; that's a recent $1 find from The Daisy.

I'm singing the praises of Friday and am looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I wish the same for you.

Love your new picture; your feet don't look like they are touching the ground. Inspriational!

My summer flowers are still doing well, and I don't feel right about throwing them away yet. Fall will come soon enough - doesn't usually start until October here. I did get some mums though, I could not resist.

My daughter would FREAK at your house. She's been asking if it's Halloween yet since August.
