Another Breath of Fall...

Our busy little mantel with fall dolls and all kinds of berries and leaves... You can double click it if you'd like to see in between the little, cluttery-clusters of goodness!!!!!
This little kewpie is ready for my favorite season!


Our coffee table. These pumpkins are actually batter/glow candles that softly flicker at night... Really cool...

Mom's great purchase from Valerie at QVC... what a wreath!

You know, I started decorating for fall in late July, I think... and now it is finally time to truly deck the halls with Fall's glory!!! haha.. Don't you love cheesy soups, cheesy snacks, and cheesy blog writers at 4:30 a.m.??? Yeah, I have been bitten by the awake-too-early bug. I truly never suffer from THAT kind of insomnia... I sometimes struggle to get to sleep (mainly because I don't lie down on the bed, haha... and I watch television too late or blog... or putter) But this morning, I am just wiry. I realize that about a quarter to six, I'll become very very drowsy, almost as if I'm hypnotized... grrrrr... But, as it goes, I could be worse. I'm sitting here with my shower already done and a cozy towel fluffed around me, my hair air-drying... (I won't get that bed-head look that just swoops around in an upsy-do that the kids just love!!! hahaha....) I can remember one time a girl, a very beautiful and kind girl, came up behind me and softly said, "Uh... I think maybe you wouldn't be so happy if you could see that back part of your head!" haha.. do you think, honey? And one time a very beautiful, but not-so-kind girl asked me in that made-for-teen voice,"How DO you fix your hair like that?" Something about her tone made me just know she didn't really admire the "look," wasn't trying to cultivate an identical one fo herself. I just told her I washed my hair about midnight and swirled it in a towel and went to bed ------and then it just "did" whatever it pleased when I woke up... Looking back, that was about the funniest, little, puckery "oh" I think I ever heard in my life... coming out of her sweet, burgundy/berry-lined lips...
Well, enjoy our early glimpses of fall... Mom got a great report, so far. I will have to get some sleep here in a few... Hugs.

Glad your Mom got a good report!

Your fall decor is lovely...

I could just hear the tone of voice in the story you relayed. Teen girls can be so "interesting" sometimes.
