Fall is in the air!

Fall is in the air
somewhere....

At least inside my home I can safely
pretend!
(We have 86 degree weather at 9 p.m.)



I love to use antler "sheds" as it truly
represents our lifestyle.


In my dried arrangements I have to love to use
some sparkle. It just gives some pazzazz
and life.


These pheasants are not indicative of deep
south Texas, but they called to me so much
that I actually bought the display pair as
the others had sold.


A little more dry and a little more sparkle!



Please take a few minutes to read about Katherine,
Laura's daughter. She will be running in the
Chicago Marathon in support of
a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
Laura writes "White Spray Paint".

 


I'm so excited to link to
The House in the Roses for
"Show Off Your Cottage".
You will love the entries!

It seems as though your weather is similar to ours. Our summers are long and warm and it is always such a relief when the cooler weather arrives!

Your Fall decorating is gorgeous. I sure hope that Autumn arrives soon for you!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Wow..looking at your photos, fall is on it's way to Texas! so very pretty..and I'm glad the antlers were "sheds" and the phesants ceramic (or were they metal?) either way, your arrangement, with all it's sparkle and "dry" is magazine quality!

Here in GA it has finally started to cool down. Love your mantel, I would have bought the display phesants, too! I am on the hunt for phesant plates.
