Spooktacular Decoration

Fall festival fun

I love Halloween.  And Fall.  But mostly Halloween.  There are so many crafts and decorations and some of them carry you through to Thanksgiving.  I enjoy dressing my house up for each season and changing the place mats and settings on the dining room table to reflect the time of year.  This month, I somehow missed the window of Halloween decor, but my sweet mother in law brought over some mums and Fall-ish items to make our house more festive.

Leaf Peepers

The color of Fall

There's a chill in the air.  Most likely, it will only last today and then tomorrow will be sunny and 75 degrees.  But maybe Fall is here to stay.  Either way, the leaves are changing and the states have issued their Fall Foliage Reports.  Couples are planning weekend getaways up the Blue Ridge Parkway and here in the Sultry city we're unpacking sweaters.  With leaves of burnt sienna and chestnut, from bittersweet to scarlet, and sunglow and goldenrod, our Southern skyline and hilltops are turning to luscious colors right out of a Crayola crayon box.

This Little Light of Mine

Chandeliers warm it up

It's been a long week with travel up north and work going crazy, but it's Monday night again and the world is waiting for a Sultry South update!  So we need to think happy, warm thoughts and I have just the beautiful thing: Chandeliers!

Who doesn't love a gorgeous, over the top, completely Southern light fixture?  You can hang a chandelier anywhere and it adds a touch of class.
