I A-Door Autumn!

Edited 9/10/09:
After I posted this yesterday, fake silk flowers and plastic wheat, and all, I found out there was going to be a P.O.O.P.I.E. party today at the Nesting Place. You'll have to go over there to find out what that means, but this sweet, cheerful little arrangement probably qualifies as a fiasco. Oh well. It's still making me smile.

A little more Fall Nesting going on...

Okay, we all know that we'll have some summer weather again, maybe for a few days or a week, but until then, I'm enjoying this taste of Fall. The air is drier, the locusts are singing, sunrise is later, sunset is earlier, and squirrels are running amok with black walnuts. (Digging little holes and planting each of those hundreds of baby trees I'll pull up next Spring.)

In the spirit of the burgeoning season, I changed the flower arrangement on the front door today. Remember how I've been trying to use what I have around the house to make my seasonal door arrangements? Well, I did pick up a few small picks of cattails to do this one. Oh, and some ribbon.

The sunflowers came from a swag I've had for a few years. Just pulled the sunflowers off the swag and used stems from some of the red flowers I used for summer.

So this whole arrangement totally breaks the #1 HGTV Decorating Mistake since I used fake flowers. Pssst! Some are even plastic - don't tell!

I have to say, this just makes me smile - plastic, silk, fake flowers and all!

Thanks Tammy for always sharing your neat decorations around your house. I also put my fall flowers on the door. I have some of my indoor fall stuff out, but Kurt says I have to wait a little longer for the indoor/outdoor Halloween decor. I got the movie prize and it looks great. Kim and I will have a good time eating it all while she is here. Thanks again!

I'm part of Nester's Poopie Party, and I know you may NOT believe this, but I just BOUGHT some beautiful Dark Red Sunflowers to do SOMETHING with...hopefully nothing so distasteful, as to not honor my POOPIE badge! LOL!

Love the Door Decor! And as Nester puts it, If you Love it, Why Change it???

Thanks for sharing!
