Fall Decor You Can't Ignore


Did you have a good weekend?  We spent Sunday celebrating our #2's thirtieth birthday at Georgie's, which was lovely.  Unfortunately, the birthday girl did not allow photos. 
Don't shoot the messenger.

It's lucky that I'm not sensitive.

Anywho, when we made the big move from Massachusetts to Texas, the Mister strongly encouraged me to lighten the load since this was the first time that we were picking up the tab.  The Mister explained to me that Holiday decorations were not a necessity and, therefore, they needed to find a nice home at the Goodwill.

One day, about 25 years ago, I relocated my cardio workout to the aisles of TJ Maxx.  I was perusing all the Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving treasures when I spotted this sweet little pumpkin girl.  For some reason, she reminded me of someone.  

By George, I think she's got it!

None other than my #2!

I told the Mister that I considered that darling pumpkin girl a family heirloom and promptly placed it in the box of stuff that was hiding all the other treasures that I was supposed to donate. 

Over the weekend, I was on the hunt for a Fall wreath.   I hate to shop alone.  So I am bringing you along with me.  You can help me hide the bags.

Etsy has a lot of pretty wreaths.

On sale.

On Sale!

How cute is this oyster wreath!

That's it for now.
