Fall Mantle

After another recent trip to Hobby Lobby (just love that store) and acquiring some of my favorite candles, I now have a beautiful fall display on my mantle. Since I'm on this white pumpkin kick, I spray painted the pumpkins sitting on the candle sticks.

The candles I use are sold through "PartyLite" My best friend, Mary Crisp is a successful independent consultant with them. They sell the best candles on the market. As their candles burn they actually liquefy, so as they burn down there is no residual wax left. Since the temperatures are still in the low 90's it doesn't quite feel like fall, but inside, it sure smells like fall with scents like ginger pumpkin and apple orchard. Go check out her web-site

I love the look of my mantle with the soft glow of candle light, I hope you do too.

Wishing for Fall

I am ready for some cooler temperatures and lower humidity's. Fall is my favorite season. I love the fall colors, clear blue skies and that little nip in the air. We here in the south have suffered through the worst summer of high humidity, heat index of 105-115 and hazy skies. I know we still have a couple more weeks of summer, but with Labor Day come and gone, I have set my sights on Fall.

I figured if I decorate for Fall it will come---So I made a trip to my local Hobby Lobby ( I was there about 2 1/2 hours) came home and went to work, which really isn't work because I love to decorate. I need to make another trip--still have a few more places in the house I want to give a little touch of Fall . This is what I have done so far.

Can ya tell, I'm lovin' those white pumkins!!!
