Fall Decor

Today we (hubby and I) sat out on the deck (I still say "new" deck) and just listened to the wind blowing as a storm is coming through. Every time the wind roared, it rained leaves. It was amazing! And, it was still warm enough to enjoy being out there.
We called his Mom, who lives next door to come down and join us. We all 3 just sat there and enjoyed the day. MIL shared stories about her youth, which is always intriguing. Hubby said it was one of those "perfect" days...and I agree.
I've been inspired by the blogging community in so many ways! One of them is all the cool Fall Decorating. I have never done that!! Until now....that is!

This is the first thing that people see when they walk in the door, it was a spring bouquet and now it's all FALL! (darn...shoulda took a pic of the before)

As for decorating by my entry way....why should I? I don't live in a neighborhood. Nobody drives by except the UPS man and my Mother In Law. Even if someone did drive by, they wouldn't even see my entry way....our driveway is long.

BUT....what about ME? I see my entry way all the time! I started thinking about what I wanted and I decided that I wanted something that would last all of the fall season....not just Halloween. I wanted something Cute and Friendly. And, I found it ALL at Walmart and it was all under $30. Yay!

And, Yes! I do enjoy it every time I see it!

This is a first.....I've been Tagged!

I was tagged by Julie.

Here are the rules to tag by:

1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Here are my random and/or weird facts about myself:
1. I never go barefoot...even in my own house!
2. I don't own a dishwasher...I guess that makes ME the dishwasher (and hubby sometimes).
3. I like to sleep in complete dark.
4. I like salty food MORE than sweet....Darn Potato chips...they are evil!!
5. I love clothes...probably more than I should! And, I'm picky about them too!
6. I guess this goes with #5....I'm a shoe-a-holic! I even have a special shelving unit that my husband built for me (and my collection)...sadly, I had foot surgery a year or so ago...and I still have to find only the most comfortable shoes.
7. I'd rather be cold than hot. I love bundling up in winter clothes, hot cup of tea, nice fire in the fire place and stormy weather outside.

Well. That was hard. I'll probably think of tons of clever things later that I could have put down!
