Fall is here!

My habit this time of year?! Apples, pumpkins, cinnamon, cloves and wheat! 
 I am a little embarrassed that I never got my Halloween pictures posted, so here you go:
Why, yes, I DO change my house for every season! I have so many ideas floating around in my head, I must get them out and onto the canvas of the spaces in my house! I will share some more pictures with you over the next few weeks and give you some ideas of how to bring a little of the season into your own home (without changing the whole place!)
 In November, I love to celebrate the harvest and the bounteous blessings we receive from the earth. One way to bring that bounty indoors, is to stand some wheat stems in a pitcher or vase, or even just tie some jute around a bunch of wheat and stand on a table. In the above photo, I have dressed my breakfast table with a simple old wood crate filled with my apples, the wheat and a pie pumpkin. It sits there as a tribute to the changing colors and gifts from nature. And yes, the apples are actually for eating! I may be addicted, but I am not cracked!

 Happy Fall, Y'all!

 P.S. go HERE for my very first giveaway!

  1. Where is the best place to get wheat like that pictureD? I think it would look great on my mantle in an apothecary jar.
