I had to do it……really ………
I just had to do it!!
Fall is coming, my favorite time of the year.
It seems a lot of the positive things in my life
have happened in the autumn season.
Or maybe I am more in tune and notice it more.
I moved into this house, soon to be someone else’s,
on Halloween night twenty something years ago.
The day after moving in, my daughter and I started
decorating for fall/thanksgiving.
I just could not leave without decorating one last time.
Yesterday I spent the day reflecting on the ghost of autumn’s
past, as I went about decorating.
I wished I had pictures from all those years.. I probably have
a few, but putting my hands on them ?????probably not.
Those were the days before digital and there are tons of albums
I would have to sort through….I would get distracted and look
at pictures all day and accomplish nothing….sigh sigh sigh
I do have one Thanksgiving picture when my dining room was so traditional.
Seems odd that my style has drastically changed.
Two sweet sisters: my mom and my aunt. The date could be the mid 1990’s
Can you believe this is the same dining room 2014? That dark cabinet is now light and bright.
I liked it when it was dark and really loving it white.
I am not going over the top with the decorations this year, as I have been accused of in the past.
Every room must have a touch of fall or why bother at all, I say.
Today …….may I present to you my dining room…all decked out in autumn colors.
