"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder
I'm a little later than usual getting my fall decorations out. I'm still just so tired in the evenings after getting home from work that I hadn't been able to seem to find the energy to get my boxes out of the closet. But, Friday evening, an opportunity presented itself! My daughter went to the local high school football game and Mr. H. and my son headed out of town to watch our nephew play in his football game, so...I took advantage of a quiet house and just decided to push through and put everything out all at once and get it done! It was just in time, too. All weekend long it was rainy, dreary, and cool outside and I was so glad that it felt like (and smelt like!) FALL at my house!
I put out leaves and decorations all over the house,
but my two favorite places to decorate are the butler's pantry
and the hutch.
I am LOVING this Better Homes and Gardens candle I picked up at Wal-Mart.
It is "Simmering Apple Cider" scent.
Only $5 for a large 18 ounce size candle,
and I think it smells just as good and strong as a Yankee one.
