Falling Into Fall 2013

Ahhhh Another Season- 
Just a while ago I thought we might be rushing the Fall season-
Now here we are just days away from what our calendars tell us is officially
Autumn or Fall
Which word do you prefer?
I usually call this simply
But I must admit I do love  the word 

While I am most definitely a 
I find I am not ready for all the wonderful changes I love making around me
That's why I refer to  what is happening [ or not ] as
Confession time my Blogger friends
You Can make a difference with a little touch here and there
When you cannot find the wonderful little fall accents in the attic and
Your local stores can't seem to get the new Fall inventory onto the shelves
You can still perk things up with a few basics-
We'll just call it Minimal Decorating
~not "making do"..
This is intentional
[I hope my Falling into Fall will encourage you who like me may have been overwhelmed with LIFE
recently and thought you might just SKIP THIS SEASON ]

This setting is much the same year round
The wild life and natural gourds and baskets are basic
I just swap out seasonal accents [like the pumpkins]
as the seasons call for a little change

Remember that beautiful fresh wreath you  splurged on for fall 2012?
It can represent your "good taste" as a
FOR 2013

Yes I do love that once a year extravagant fresh wreath but
It is so neet to be able to pull out a good silk fall wreath from the Attic Stash-
It covers nicely until I can make that annual Fresh Wreath purchase

Keeping it simple again-
Just a little natural/gourds, some basic Fiestaware,
a little Dollar Store, a small treasured gift,
several flea market finds [always!]
and of course

Looking Forward,
