Just For Fun Friday: Happy Fall Y'all Edition

Fall is slowly creeping into the Midwest...which means we continue to have warm days...but there might be a bit of a chill in the air later in the evenings and early mornings.  People around here are getting excited to welcome Fall.

Pumpkins...wreaths made of red, gold, and brown leaves...dried cornstalks...scarecrows....and mums of deep rich colors are lining front porches in my neighborhood.  A few trees are starting to turn into a beautiful array of those lovely fall tones as well.

The first batch of leaves has gently fluttered from tree branch to ground. Soon the sounds of leaves crunching underfoot or the squeal of children jumping in huge leaf piles will be heard on our street. The cooler air will blow in the smell of someone burning leaves or tending a small fire in their fire pit.

It won't be long before doorbells will be ringing and treats will be requested from costumed little ones.

Yes...Fall is in the JUST FOR FUN...Because It's FRIDAY...

Here are a few snapshots of how we welcome Fall around our house:
The Pumpkin Basket holds Halloween Treats for all the little goblins who come to visit us
This little Scarecrow sits on the kitchen window sill

The adorable little Pumpkin and his sidekick Candy Corn greet Fall with such cute surprise every year

Huge Corduroy Leaves landed neatly around a Pumpkin Candle inside an artsy Metal Pumpkin on our kitchen table  

The dining room is all ready for a Fall Feast
The Little Green Pumpkin Tin holds ink pens in the kitchen

This Little Ring of Fall used to hang on my classroom door when I was a teacher and now it graces the backside of our front door

Our Engineer's Favorite Fall decorations are these McDonald's Nuggets all ready for a night of Trick or Treating

Sitting at the corner of our fireplace is a Basket of Floral Fall Beauty

These Shimmery Pumpkins rest on the corner of the fireplace mantel

I love this little indoor Harvest Birdhouse

This Fall Bounty greets guests in the entryway

The Front Door Fall Wreath covers the door visitors will just have to ring the bell

What can be more welcoming than a Welcome sign?
This little Fall Flag hangs out by the sidewalk

Once I discovered this Brave Scarecrow was taken down by a Hollow Pumpkin...

I quickly helped him up and back into place on the front porch

This first signs of Fall...a few leaves on the ground....
And the trees begin to change into magnificent color

A sneaky peak at my Neighbor's Mums
Yes...Fall is just getting started

Happy Fall Y'all!
