Autumn's Glow

I know its been getting boring around here with no post in about a week!! I have done a little bit of Fall decorating and wanted to share. In the hurricane I put some hazelnut potpourri from Wal-Mart along with a small pillar candle. The crystal bowl has pinecones that have some moss and glitter, faux acorns with glitter, some vine balls(?) with copper wire and beads, and a shimmery pumpkin. I just put some beaded pumpkins in the apothecary jar. The squirrel photo came from Robin-love her!! And I swear The Nester is making me like gaudy gold frames!!

I have a question about Christmas stockings for y'all. Do you like all matching stockings or an eclectic assortment? I love this girl's stockings.

As always I value your comments and opinions!!

Your fall decorations look great. They looks very classy and timeless. Those stockings are darling. It's fun to have different stockings for the different personalities in the family.

Oh how cute is that? Toooo cute! I love your mantle & you too! :)

Okay, this is my outtake on stockings. For my home I stay pretty traditional now that the kids are older, but as a gift for friends I go crazy with different fun styles! Either way, it's a win win. I've decided that I'm giving my stocking partner a fun one! I do like the "joy" one that was on my blog too. Am I making your decision easier or harder? :)

Your mantle looks fabulous! I love how you always have a candle burning- so cozy.:) Why can I not find the stockings?? I am in love with the idea you have for your swap partner! I will not write it in case she stops by...

I met a lady that was using My Father's World today and she loves it! Makes me want to buy it... Lori

Those stockings are cute!! I like that they are all different but yet all go together. I think it is because they are all whimsical. Your fall decor is looking good! Does the hazelnut potpourri warm up by the candle and give off a nice aroma?

Your decorations are beautiful!
Fall is my very favorite and I always seem to miss it:^(

i'm off to check out the link to the stockings!
To answer...I usually have all matching stockings (on the mantle -- differnt for their rooms) but with each personalized -- but this year, I may do something different? I'm not sure I'll have time, though?

Can't wait to see what you're doing!
