Here’s some news you can use:
yesterday I enjoyed my first cup of Dunkin Donuts pumpkin spice coffee!
Bring on the caramel apples — it’s early fall!
Home Depot was selling small mums, pansies + ornamental kale
FOR 83 CENTS EACH!,
so I excitedly filled the back of my station wagon,
dashed home + got to work, tricking out our front porch!
I happily arranged + rearranged to my heart’s content,
pausing occasionally to admire, of course,
+ worrying just a tad that our neighbors would think I’m crazy.
HA! TOO LATE FOR THAT!

But I digress. Back to my project.
At one point, I had both sides of our steps brimming with autumnal glory,
but midway, I opted to edit + do just one side.
Less is more, right?
My favorites: white pumpkins inside my pair of black urns (Home Depot).
Once I saw how awesome that looked,
I opted to continue incorporating garden pots from my semi-vast collection.
Well, THAT was fun!
I don’t do much fall decor inside the house,
but I am thinking of doing a little something this year (soon!)
to boost my morale.
Once again, my plans are to shop from the house
+ use what I already own.
