Fall is just around the corner, isn't it?

That's what I tell myself each hot August day that we face......."it won't be much longer (and an inner voice devilishly taunts with disbelief)! I long for the cooler days of fall, like October and November when you don't sweat buckets just for wearing a long sleeve shirt. Those are MY kind of days. Of course I love the fall decorations, too! I love pumpkins, scarecrows, bales of hay, gourds, mums, and such. I thought I'd show you a couple of pics for FYInspiration......maybe you will be inspired to do something different this year with your front door, front porch, or your living spaces. Here's a wonderfully decorated front door, with the pumpkin topiaries on either side of the door, and just looks fantastic!

And of course, just as I showed with the Jamestown Centerpiece, just by collecting a grouping that shouts "FALL" in a great container, one can add a harvest theme to any room. This Renaissance Hurricane filled with fun gourds and pumpkins looks great, and the one filled with candy corn and other harvest time confections looks very tempting! You could fill it with Indian Corn, with acorns, nuts & a candle, or pinecones. Again, add whatever inspires you! Hope this gives you, too, some hope that FALL is right around the corner! I'd love to hear what YOU do for fall!

More ideas! I am getting (a little bit) in the mood for fall after looking at these photos.

Very pretty! Yes, we all dream of some cooler temps to bring those lovely fall items out!

Those pumpkin topiaries are so cute. Cottage Living mag did some that had numbers carved in them.
