Welcoming Fall

Welcoming Fall!


Hello Ladies!

    I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather and decorating!  I have enjoyed trying to catch up on all of your loveliness!  My, you've been busy!! I didn't leave any comments and I'm sorry. I haven't been blogging in several months and for now, I am just trying to catch up....but I will!!

    I needed to take a break from blogging to prioritize my life, as sometimes we need to take a step back and re evaluate life.  I was out of work and was having trouble finding something. I am slowly getting back into the work field and am doing ok.


     I would like to share with you some of my fall decorating. I am a little behind because I feel now I should be decorating for Halloween!  Gosh.......time has gone by fast.

I hope you enjoy my fall living room and please feel free to let me know of any changes that I may have missed in designing my blog!

I will be linking up with  The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Make sure you stop by and say hello and check out all of the loveliness and yummies they will present to you.  Enjoy your day!!

A quick note....notice on the side bar that there is a giveaway. See it?  Make sure you click on over to Savvy Season to sign up for an awesome, awesome giveaway!!

Until next time......

Andrea

Hi Andrea:

I'm so pleased to see you back blogging and it's great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays (but my name is not Diane).

Love both of those goblets: the etched giraffe pattern is amazing and the seeded glass with a twist is wonderful.

Wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.

Thank you for sharing your fall decorations with us. They are all so festive, and I love the fact that you gave us the list of where to find them. Thanks!

I know exactly how you feel. I'm behind in my blogging, too. Just jump in, and people will understand.

Welcome back!

XO,

This is all so lovely! I love your use of lights in the fall decor. It's a "softer side of fall".

And I do know and understand about life making you need to step away from blogging. It's so hard to be upbeat and creative and well... just OPEN when life isn't going well. I relate.
