FREE Decorations via Mother Nature
« on: October 18, 2010, 06:14:00 AM »
Hope you that are experiencing Fall right now get outside and pick up some of the FREE decorations Mother Nature has provided for your home.

Yesterday, I was out walking around our property and picked up:

*  Acorns - some for decorations, some for the squirrels this winter.

*  Leaves - I still have all mine from last years 30-day Commitment - but, I wanted some new ones too.

*  Tree branches w/berries.

*  Stems - I'm not sure what these are from, but they look "fall-ish".   :D

Enjoy Fall - before we know it, you-know-what will be here!   :o   ;)

I do like putting Autumnal looking stuff around my house for this season when I have the energy to do so.  I adore Fall.  My daughter's birthday is also on Halloween so we have a lot of little decor stuff for that to make her feel special. Summer has been so remarkably dry here, the little splashes of fall color are a beautiful change from the straw yellow of my yard :P

Hi

I like Autumn too - its just not traditional here to decorate for it. Halloween is getting more and more commercial every year. It used to be low key here too. I s'pose films have changed everything.

Take care - Scottie  :)

I just use pumpkins (real or my fake ones), acorns, leaves . . things like that.

The one artificial pumpkin I have has a face cut out and lights up - when Halloween is over, I just turn it around and use the plain pumpkin side for November and Thanksgiving.

I like the reds, oranges and yellows of Fall.  The turning of the leaves goes by much too quickly - I wish that it lasted longer.

I park under a tree and I swear that the squirrels see me coming every day!  They wait until the car is in just the right place and kapow, they start throwing the acorns at it! ;) :D  Seriously though, they are a bit rambunctious during the early day light hours, and the paint job is taking a bit of a hit.  And don't get me started on those birds! :D

Mother Nature does a nice job with decorations However, she tends to go overboard with the snow in the winter!
