October is here! This is the beginning of my three favorite months of the year. I love the holiday season, the weather changing, the clothes, football games, family gatherings, the colors of fall.....everything! I spent some time today pulling out our fall decor. I put mostly Halloween things out right now, but do have a few fall things out, too. These are photos of the mantle. Most of the decor is from Hobby Lobby (isn't the vintage stuff cute?) and the haunted house and hanger are things I made.

I also took down the cream-colored silk drapes and replaced them with dark olive green velvet drapes. It really makes a dramatic change in the room and brings fall in! I still have the ivory lace/floral sheers up and they look great next to the green. I have several sets of curtains that I move around the house and change with the seasons. Our living room is very neutral, so I add seasonal colors with curtains and decorative pillows. (pillows on the sofa right now are red, brown, cream, orange, and a red floral)

I need a dose of junking, so I'll be heading to Uncommon Objects for a while tomorrow while running errands. If I find anything fun, I'll share tomorrow! :)

Made these for breakfast tomorrow so the house smells so good right now
- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.
Have a wonderful night!

More power to you on changing those curtains! That is one of my least favorite things to do is take down curtains whether I am repainting the room or just cleaning. I dread that more than anything, but i bet your room looks lovely too.

Thanks for the recipie, I am gonna try those tomorrow.
