Already Making Changes...

Well, I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I'm already making changes to my Fall decor. :)

If you missed my Fall Home Tour, you can view it HERE.

I kept feeling like something was lacking on my mantle. I wasn't happy with the candle holder on the far right. 

I knew I wanted to add something more colorful, so I got out my Fall decor boxes again and started rummaging around until I found these floral seed pod looking things. I have no idea what they're supposed to be, but the colors were right, so I went with it. 

I used some extra wheat as filler for the vase. 

I love the Fall colors and I was so happy to find an excuse to bring back my hob nail milk glass vase. I was already missing it. :)

I added a book under the wheat bundle and white pumpkin to give it a little height (and more color)

Ahhh...much better. Now I can sleep at night. ;)

I also added this free printable to my shelves...

What? You can't see it? Hee hee! It's got very subtle colors (which I love) but that makes it hard to photograph. 

Here's a closer look...

I love Anne of Green Gables. It was only a few years ago that I read the books for the first time. I now have the whole collection on my Kindle. Some of you may remember this other quote from the Anne of Green Gables books I have in my dining room...

Here's what it says...

One of my favorite quotes of all time. :)

I added this fall candle ring to my dining room table. I used to have this out year round, and I might just do that again. I love the sparkly leaves.  (This was actually garland that I cut up to make little candle rings.)

I recently had to remove my beloved burlap runner because Miss Holly pants discovered how much fun it was to rip little strings of burlap from the edges. I was afraid she'd ingest it, so in order to save it, I had to remove it. Hopefully she'll move on to other things and I can put it back soon. :)

One more thing...due to a fantastic sale at my local garden center, I decided to try my hand at growing Azaleas again. I've had Encore Azaleas before, but never had much luck with them. This time around, I got a Judge Solomon Pink Indica Hybrid Azalea. Long name, huh? 

It won't bloom until Spring, but I can't wait. We actually bought some Azalea potting mix to boost the acidity of the soil. Azaleas love acidic soil, so this should help it get a good start. Lots of people in my neighborhood have these, so I hope it does well. 

Hope y'all have a great week!
