Friday Favorite
Celebrating the Changing Seasons
Decorating the Home
Ah, seasonal decorating, it's one of my very favorite things to do! I feel very blessed to live where I do because we have four very distinct seasons in our state. I love the cool, crisp air and the changing leaves in the Autumn, the gentle snowfall in the Winter, the Dogwoods and Daffodils blooming in the Spring, and the three H's as they call it around here in the Summer: Hazy, Hot, and Humid (okay, I DON'T love that one so much)!! With each new season I like to add little seasonal touches around my home to reflect what is going on "outside" my home. It's like bringing of a touch of the outdoors in! Even if you live in an area where you don't experience the changing of the seasons you can still add little touches to your home to reflect the change and it might get your more excited about the different seasons. Have fun, be creative, and most of all remember to thank the Creator who is responsible for all of the beauty!

So pretty! I really enjoyed seeing how you change out your mantel for the season. I love living where we have a distinct change of seasons as well, and autumn is my favorite! :)

Jennifer and Clarice, thank you!!

Jessica, I'm so happy you visited my blog! Wish I could share my mantle with you! Our house didn't have a fireplace when we bought it, we got that from the home improvement store! I had always wanted a mantle to decorate for the seasons! Thanks for stopping by!

becca and Mrs. C, thank you for your kind words:)

Kelli, it looks like we both liked the popcorn candle idea from Mrs. Wilt!

Tammy, I am so glad! I hope you are feeling better now.
