First it was a cool breeze on a hot day that caught my attention.
Then the nights got chilly.
A few leaves started turning a brilliant shade of red.
And before I knew it, it seemed that fall had just about arrived in our neighborhood.
Which means I am the happiest person on the face of the planet.
Brinkley doesn’t mind either, because the switch in the weather has brought on a new wave of stinkbugs that are infiltrating our house. He’s currently stalking the ones on the ceiling in my studio with reckless abandon.
Since we’re in a new house, decorating for autumn presents a bit more of a challenge this year, and I’m taking it a few steps at a time.
Wreaths were where I decided to begin. I’ve never been much of a wreath-maker, but fall colors make it pretty easy to throw something together.
Here are mine this year. I should note that including the cost of the grapevine wreaths, I didn’t spend more than $8 on either of these, including the ribbon. Not too shabby!
How are your autumn decorations coming along?
