“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” – William Cullent Bryant
I love autumn. I also love decorating my house for fall. We spend most of our time in our homes and so I approach my own home decoration with positivity in mind. Decorating your home is personal. I try to use things that make me happy for fall: such as pumpkins, candles, nature and especially birds. Changing your home for the season will bring a freshness and warmth and increase the positive energy which will influence you and your family.
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.- Albert Camus
Fall is my favorite time of year. I am lucky to live in a part of the country that has four seasons. The warm Indian summer leading to the crisp autumn days. It does feel like a second spring because everything reminds me of new beginnings. School, pumpkin lattes, scarves, boots, leaves changing colors, Halloween, Thanksgiving, cider mills, sweaters, fuzzy socks, but I could go on forever. My absolute favorite thing is the way a clear fall day smells.

Sometimes people shy away from DIY projects because they are afraid they will make a mess or mistake or it will not turn out the way they imagine it. This is exactly why I love to DIY. It is about the process and the finished product. There is satisfaction with attempting something and seeing it thru to the end and not giving up. I am always surprised with what I end up with.
