Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
I don’t know who that guy is, but I agree with him.
Autumn is a beautiful season where the weather is not too hot, not too cold, and allows you to pull out those comfy, fuzzy sweaters you’ve been missing all year as well as that pair of cute boots you’ve stored away since it became too hot to wear them comfortably.
Because Autumn is a gorgeous time of year, Mom’s decided it’s time to decorate the house!
I took pictures. Because taking pictures are fun.
Without further ado, here they are, my lovely readers!
This is the mess we started out with.
And then we did the coffee table. Did I mention we had a pet bunny? Yeah, it’s sort of like a pet rock…
This is part of the living room.
Can you tell my mom is a candle person?
I’m not really sure what this is… but it’s pretty, isn’t it?
Not only are we candle people, but we’re also HEALTHY candle people! Notice the bottle of vitamins on the unused marble cutting board we got as a Christmas gift one year. Oh yeah! We’re also tea people. Well, I am anyway. 😛 My favs are vanilla, vanilla chai, and pumpkin spice! We also have some herb tea stuff but it’s nothing you can buy at the store. 😉
A gorgeous shot of of a window! 😛
The table is all ready for fall!
Ah, don’t do you just love fake plants? No watering, no tilling of the soil… they just… look nice.
This is something my dad made (he’s very talented, as you can see). Yes, we were listening to Proof of Your Love by For KING and COUNTRY. Yes, we have Roku. And yes, we love books. And candles.
The grandfather clock. (Wow, I thought “the Godfather clock” and was like, “Wait! That can’t be right.” You just read that in an Yzma voice, didn’t you?)
Next, I headed outside to get some nature shots. ^_^
Roses are beautiful. Even dying ones. There’s just something about them… They age with dignity, I guess.
And it’s not like they’re jealous of the young roses either…
I love the lighting in this picture… and the raindrops on the petals…
Daisies are beautiful too!
We’ve got quite a few oak trees around our place!
This is a side shot of the house. Our lanai has glass windows all around. Isn’t that just dreamy?!
Ma petite chat. (Sorry! Don’t know what’s up with the French!)
Poinsettias are pretty flowers!
I don’t know what these are, but they were purple and pretty, so I shot them (with a camera, of course!).
Oh, look! Another purple thing! Except I know what this is! It’s a flower! Not sure what kind though. 😛
And here’s a yellow one!
This is a bird thing that I didn’t know was here until I started taking pictures of the flowers!
The barn is on the left there behind the house. But this is mainly a shot of overgrown foliage that’s blocking the walkway around the oak tree in front of our kitchen window. 😛
Gorgeous shot of a barbed wire fence, don’t you think? 😉
Another shot of the driveway. I know, I know. We have a gorgeous driveway. *cries tears brought by the overwhelming sense of beauty*
The other side of the driveway. It’s like a U-turn one.
Alrighty! I hope you all enjoyed that because it took me forever to upload the pictures and stuff. 😛
