I can't tell you how many times I found an old dilapidated white wicker chair
on Craigslist that I wanted to use to make a display like the one above.
What kept me from it? My house does not look good with white wicker on the porch
and even if I did it for just fall...I'd have to store that chair the rest of the year...so I have resisted.
Just like I resisted really living in a fall frame of mind.
We were too busy have gorgeous late summer like days...and it just didn't feel like fall.
Well, it certainly feels like fall now...and soon...it will feel like winter here later next week.
I'm just now in the mood for cozy warm browns and oranges and here it is...
and it's practically time for dragging out all the Christmas things.
Still I'll enjoy this bit of fall before the Christmas rush begins.
I bought a pretty little mercury glass pumpkin tonight at Pier 1.
At 75% off...it was just too good a deal to pass up.
So one last little fall decor item for the year.
Then I must concentrate on Christmas...cause you know what I did?
Last winter in a fit...I threw away my Christmas tree!
The lights were burning out and some of the limbs were hanging.
I just thought I couldn't bring myself to put that tree up one more time.
But now....I have no tree.
And I don't like any of the ones I see in the stores.
I kept thinking I had lots of time to ponder this dilemma but now realize...
I really don't!
What was I thinking?
