Feels Like Fall...Might As Well Look Like Fall Too!

The other day while on a long car ride with my husband, we decided to name our favorite things about each season.  As I went through the seasons, I realized even though I've always been a summer girl, I actually had more things I love about Fall.  Among them:
  • The colors: the burnt oranges, brick reds, and sunset yellows.
  • Scarves and woven hats.
  • The food: spaghetti, chili, squash, and soups!
  • Crisp, cold nights.
  • Halloween and favorite holidays.
  • Back to school. 
  • College football season and tailgating.
  • Fall hiking.
So, when I woke up on Saturday morning to a brisk morning sunrise, I couldn't help but think that Autumn had arrived.  So, why not just embrace it?  And so I did.  I headed down to the craft store with some pictures of the door arrangement I wanted to make, and started sprucing up the entry for Fall.

I loved the look of this door arrangement, but I wanted to do it in Autumnal colors.

Heres' the finished product. I found an egg-shaped twine basket at Michael's for $14.99 and figure I can change up the arrangement every season.
And then I had to change the flowers in my antique pedestal lantern...just because!

Tah Dah...about $30 later, I've got a nice Fall arrangement.
