Fall is officially here in Georgia and it was about time I embraced it and started adding touches of the season to the house!  My kids so wish I was the cool mom ... the kind that fills the yard with blow up pumpkins, ghosts and spiders.  Sadly for them ... I am not.  I probably should add some spider webs and big spiders on the side of the house the night of Halloween.  They would love it and it would only be up a short time so it would be a win, win for all!!!

Of course the first touch was a few bunches of sunflowers!!  I love these I grabbed up from Trader Joes!  I love the yellow centers.  I will need to make sure I grab new ones in a few weeks ... but until then these are holding up nicely!!

Our front door needed an overhaul and I grabbed up some new urns at Scott's this weekend!!  Lucky for me I asked on Thursday.  It was the very last set the dealer had!!  Note to self ... lift them with your legs not your back.  I did not do so and my back is not happy!!!

My sweet friend Maggi helped me style the pots and I moved the boxwoods into the urns and then filled the lower pots with trailing white pansies.  I think they are amazing and I love the results!!!

I just need some pumpkins from the state farmer's market to finish it off!!

I fell in love with a wreath at Scott's on Thursday but did not like its $130 price tag.  And I was sure those leaves would mildew and/or fade over time.  Our front door gets full sun ... and needs something that can take the wind, rain and sun daily!!

I pulled out last years model and realized I loved it just as much as I did when I made it.  And it was free so it became my new favorite!!

The table got a sprucing with some straws, sunflowers and pumpkin tea from Trader Joes.  I haven't tried it yet but it smells amazing.  I found the pitcher in my pile of vintage finds in the basement.  I have been collecting vintage happies for ever and have decided to stop.  Or at least turn my hunting into a profit!! (More on that later!!)

I love fall ... actually I have realized I love each season.  Fall for us means crock pot dinners, fires, sweaters and boots, football games and beer.  And of course ... lots of snuggles with my babies!

Happy Fall!!
