Not Looking Like Christmas Here

Though the weather is more like summer things are looking like fall around here. The pumpkins, mums, and cornstalks are showing a little wear from the frosts of last week but still looking good for Thanksgiving. I don't want to overlook a day of celebrating with family and friends all that we have to be thankful for. All too soon it will be time to hang the lights and decorate the trees but for now Hidden Haven is decorated for Thanksgiving.










The mums,cornstalks, and pumpkins came from my friends produce stand... FREE. The other things I already had so fall decorating cost me zero dollars. I did have all the leaves on the ground raked but we had a wind and rain storm that brought lots more down. Hope to get them raked before guests arrive for Thanksgiving dinner but if not I can always say its part of my fall decorations! Have a blessed night everyone.

Everything looks so pretty and inviting. The stores rush the holidays, don't they? Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving week, Peggy.

Summertime, summertime, sum, sum, summertime...what a great day today was. I hope it stays. ;)

We're not the decorating kind around here. I catch myself thinking more about it as I grow in age, though.

Good for you! I think Thanksgiving gets underplayed these days. Some of the stores here were setting out Christmas decorations before the first of November ...that's just not right in my book.

If we as a society spent more time on our lists of what we're thankful for and less time on our 'wish lists' for Christmas, we'd be a happier more productive lot!

Echoing HossBoss' sentiments. Couldn't say it better. I kept running into Christmas displays when I was looking for Halloween decorations.

It all looks so inviting; I could sit on that porch, drink some hot cider and simply visit...for the longest time!

That tan speckled pumpkin in the first of the pumpkin pictures is just awesome!
