I do, my living room furniture is green and tanish color and my carpet is green, I have all these pretty orange and reds and yellow through out the house. I had put out fall flowers and my fall wreath and It looks really nice. I am so bored and my left arm isnt feeling any better.

So tel me what do you do?? Do you make any type of fall decorations to give to anyone. I am thinking of making a Jar for fall to give to several people in my family.
Well have a good night, I'm getting sleepy. Take care, Sam

I have a huge vase (it looks more like a fishbowl) that is too big for flowers, but it looks nice sitting on a corner table. In the fall I put some loose autum leaves in the bottom of it. In the winter, I fill it about a third of the way with red glass balls. The rest of the year it gathers dust. :)
Warm wishes,

I do try to do some. I have a few fall things for the inside and right now I have wicker chairs and a table in the front yard. I have a girl scarecrow and a boy scarecrow type things sitting in each chair and a nice mum on the table inbetween them. It looks like that are sitting chatting together. I usually get out the wheelbarrel and but blocks of hay in it and put pumpkins in that in the front also.

I always have an American flag flying outside so other that that, thats it for my decorating other then changing my wreath on my door for the seasons.

I will try to take a picture of my people sitting chatting if I can get my new camera to work.
Hugs,
Patty

jefa, take some water and put in the big vase and buy some floating candles that will be very pretty when lit.

When you stick the red bulbs in it do you put lights in it too, that is pretty that way too.

There is no electrical outlet nearby, but the candles sound good. This summer we used it temporarily for an emergeny sick tank for one of our minnows. My daughter has a jug full of minilights in one of her bathrooms. Very pretty.

jefa I think you can buy lights that doesn't require electricity. I'm not sure where to go though.

Patty that sounds really pretty. I too have scarecrows sitting on my porch in a chair.

I decorate outside with scarecrows and bales of hay for fall and other holiday decorations. I try to do the inside as well like put out festive towels, candles, nicknac's around the house. I'm excited about the fall being here. I am looking forward to using the fireplace again, eventhough I HATE the cold weather outside. BURRRRR!
Take care and stay warm,

Michelle
