This past weekend we started getting the house ready for Fall. I really love Autumn and we've been having such beautiful weather lately. Ray did a lot of Fall cleaning outside and I did some decorating on the porch outside, and I wanted to get started inside too.
I put away all my 'pink' and my pastels, and I packed away my summer decor. Then my daughter Ellie was kind enough to gather together all my Fall decorations from wherever they were scattered around the house (some were in the outdoor deck boxes, some were in the basement, and the rest were in the attic).
I had long ago given up decorating the house with scare crows and such as my children are all grown, but then my grandchildren came along and we started once again with visiting pumpkin farms, buying Halloween costumes, and decorating the house for the holidays.
I wanted to start by decorating the front window, Ray had washed the outside of the windows but I needed to do the inside.
Here are my luxurious lace curtains. Well, they are actually shower curtains that I bought on sale from the JC Penney catalog. They were supposed to be our 'let's make do with them until we can afford better', but that was seven years ago!
Okay, let's see what we have here. No beautiful views of mountains or meadows, but it's the street where I live and I love it!
The windows actually aren't all that dirty, so a little spritz with glass cleaner and a quick swipe and I was good to go!
I remember Wanda had a beautiful video on one of her posts on her beautiful blog Moments Of Mine, it was of a shower of leaves falling and I wanted to try and replicate that.
Not quite Wanda's beautiful Fall scene, but I made the effort, and Jayden and Mia liked it!
Okay, time to pull the shower curtains back in place!
And now I have to motivate myself to get busy on the rest of the house!
