"Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence."

{Erma Bombeck}

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

A Touch of Fall, Part 2

Hi! I've got just a few pics of the little Fall Decor I did~outside and in the family room..

Pumpkins and gourds and mums greet you at the front door..

And this little table with the birdcage is out all year round..I just change out the decor to match the season..easy peasy!

And in the family room I  did a tiny bit of decorating..the mantle, the coffee table,
and the oak cabinet..

A couple views of the bookcase. By next week the whole room will be tricked out in Christmas!!
Hope you have a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!!

So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.

A Touch of Fall

 Greetings! Life has been calling me in other directions other than blogging and decorating recently..but I managed to do a little fall embellishments~I'll share another pic on Wednesday, right before the transformation to Christmas! So the above pic is Before Fall..and below is the After:
I kept some basics there (the lamp, mirror, tray, dish for pumpkins and runner) and added the fall touches. It makes it so much easier when you can use what you already have out and tweak it a little to compliment the holiday!
I am linking up to Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday, and A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
