Happy Fall!!

Fall is here! It doesn't feel like it here, it's still pretty warm, but it's such a pretty time of the year. The only thing I know is that 'old man winter' is just around the corner and everything dies and looks ugly! Lets enjoy this beautiful weather while it lasts! CoCo is ready to pounce!!




Alot of you have probably seen this arrangement in my kitchen on RMS but here in this picture I added a few pumpkins to give it more of a fall flavor. I don't do alot of fall decorating, just a few touches here and there.




This is a candle from WoodWick and is probably one of the best candles I have ever had. In case you have never burned one, this thing crackles and smells up most of my house with the smell of Biscotti and is a great scent for fall.

Hi Kristen, How funny I just commented on the Rooster centerpiece on RMS. I think it's just precious. I took a look at your items for sale and I'm thinking about ordering. The wreaths are all stunning. Warmly, Melissa

Happy Birthday Kristen!!! Feeling older today? :) I guess I won't be upset that my Fantasy Football night with the guys falls on your birthday, even if you do take off to Dallas everytime mine comes around. :-) I'll be home after work.

I figured this is the best way to get ahold of you since you have literally taken over my computer of late.

Love Ya,
Kevin

You did a beautiful job decorating.

the holidays. (teacher,employer,co-
worker etc.) You will do good !!!
Looking forward to your blog.
Warmly, Mimi

Kristen, I love your fall center piece. It's fun to see other peoples designs. Coco goes very well with you fall outdoor decor. I'm going to have to check out your work on Etsy. If you would like to add music to your blog just click on the music player on my blog. It will take you to the website you can use to add your own. I finally have most of my fall silk arrangements done for the store. We are starting to put up Christmas trees. For now we are just going to put white lights on them. After our open house we'll go full force into Christmas!!

OOPs!! Forgot to tell you I love my woodwick candles, too!!!

Melissa Miller said...

Happy Birthday to you! I'm glad you paid me a visit and I checked back with you. Hope you had a great one! Both of my sisters are coming up as well. One on the 4th and the other on the 11th. October is a busy B-day month for all my family.
Quick question about the wreaths. Do you make a "Fall" swag? I like that shape. I think it would be really pretty. I don't have any Fall decor' and would love to get started.
Let me know when you can. Thanks, Melissa

Melissa Miller said...

Hi, I can't imagine I won't want it! If it's anything as beautiful as your other creations it will be stunning. My in-laws are coming to visit this month and it will be a festive greeting. I will check ETSY for the picture. Thanks for letting me know. Melissa

Hi Kristen,

Happy Belated Birthday!

I just found your blog link on one of your RMS posts. Your home is so beautiful & decorated in my favorite colors!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Diane

Melissa Miller said...

OH WOW! You have made a beauty. I love it and it's about to be mine! LOL.
Let me see if I can figure out how to buy it. We do have a Pay Pal account.
Thanks so much, Melissa

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen, I think I got it figured out. Had to change an outdated card since it had been a while since we used Pay Pal. I'm excited to get it! It's so beautiful and warm. Thank you so much for sharing your site. Let me know if it all worked on your end.
Warmly, Melissa
