Colors of the season...

Used to be I didn't get all that excited about fall, let alone fall decorating. Oh, I'd put out a jack-o-lantern or a witch or some other ghostly things to tickle the little Halloween munchkins, but for the most part, I saved my decorating energies for Christmas.

Well, in the past couple of years, and especially since I have a mantle to play with again, I've been having fun adding a few decorative touches here, there, and everywhere! Well, not the bedrooms and bathrooms, that'd be a bit much, but the rest of the house is looking very autumn-ish and colorful.

That little witchy was on one of my "I Want Wedsnesday" posts recently! =) I love to decorate for all the seasons--especially since it's the only way I get any. I do a little in my bedroom (a little straw Autumn angel nestled between the framed photos on my nightstand) and my bathroom (a cute little pumpkin towel on the twoek rack) but I save all the rest for my main living area.

I love your mantel Marianne, and the little squirrel is adorable! I need to get busy with the decorating, it's almost too late!
