This is my one and only attempt at decorating for fall. I made these leaves with wool felt last fall, and i almost forgot that i had them until i saw some similar on a blog somewhere. It took a little time to hunt them down since they have been stashed away for a year but they are here now! And they were stashed away with a beautiful garland of beads that a sweet friend gave me, and that i love. I am glad though. Since we have put the house on the market it feels to me like a little bit of us has gone out of the house. Like it is so much more impersonal, cold kind of. i even get a little angry when we are cleaning for a showing or a open house. We scramble to find places to put some things away when they really have no place to go other than out in the open, because in a real home in a real life things are out there and messy and unorganized sometimes. So these few homey things are making me feel better. I smile when i walk by. These pictures do not do it justice but that is because we have not had much good picture taking weather lately...pretty rainy and dark. It's fall.

I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
