What's the Rush?

Everywhere I turn, the grocery store, the mall, Target, Wal-Mart- Christmas is EVERYWHERE!!!!! Thanksgiving isn't even here yet people!!! Don't get me wrong - I love to deck my halls and will start playing my Christmas CD's non-stop the day after Thanksgiving straight through New Year's. But can't we just enjoy this Thanksgiving season without hurrying past it to hurl ourselves into the frenzy that is December? I love to decorate for fall. I think it is because I am an autumn person. My house is already painted in all the lovely golds, reds and browns. So while everyone is racing to see who can show off their Christmas bedecked houses first, I am putting up some of my fall decoration pictures. I took these a minute ago and baby girl said, "Mama what are you taking pictures of?" Me - "My hutch." Her - "You are so weird."
 I think this hutch is my favorite piece of furniture in my whole house. Sweet man let me buy it from a store that was going out of business that used it to showcase all their prettys. Now I showcase mine on it! It's so folksy!

My mantle is in my dining room which is painted red and it is my favorite room in my house. Especially when my dining room table is filled with my kiddos. :)

This is my sofa table and I just think all these pumpkins are so cute.

My son's darling girlfriend made me these candy corn trees. Precious!

And this - well nothing says autumn like some yummy cabbage! This one is for you Laura!

Slow down people and savor the moments of November and give thanks to our Lord for all things.

And then everyone come to my house on Friday the day after and help me get out all my Christmas decor!



  1. What a great post. I may have to make some of the candy corn trees! I was just telling Tim last evening that it's way too soon for people to start thinking of Christmas. Love the fall decorations. I'm enjoying all the lovely photos...well, all but the cabbage {wink}!

  2. I'm going to enjoy all my Fall decorations as long as I can too :) The cabbage looks SOOOO good! Think I'll be making some soon....Love you.
