~ Autumnal ~

Fall can sometimes be a hard season for me ... you know ... decoratively.  I've just never been an orange and brown kind of gal.  But this fall ... my first since moving to a slightly more fall-ish kind of enviornment ... I have tried to give it my all.  Mixed with a little blue, of course. So, I am good to go for Feathered Nest Friday.

I have spruced up my dining room table to reflect the season.  I love this ceramic pumpkin which always looks like an oil painting to me in pictures.

 I gathered some actual fall leaves from the front of my house.  Seriously, none of those leaves have ever seen the insides of a Michaels.  True story.

 I made some actual pumpkin bread in my very own, honest-to-goodness, oven.  With some orange juice in the recipe.  Yum.

And now all I can think about is this:

We now have less than two months until Christmas. So I decorated for that (emotion) also.

Tell the truth ... you are starting to think about Christmas decorations, aren't you??
