Falling into Christmas

Every year I look forward to the stunning Fall Colors

that grace our beautiful area of our State.

We used to go to the mountains to see the brilliant Fall color,

but all we have to do now, is look outside our windows

or go outside and gaze at the glory of Mother Nature.

I love that this ironstone bowl of boxwood and pineapple

reminds me both of Christmas and Fall with the colors it displays.

So now I am definitely Falling into Christmas.

In some of my rooms for Christmas this year,

you will see some of the softer colors of the season.

I remember when I was living in Florida, I covered my Christmas trees

in Baby’s Breath as I felt it reminded me of snow!

And it helped when I had a friend who owned a florist shop

and got the Friends and Family discount!

From every vantage point in the house, I can look out and see

the beautiful and brilliant colors of Fall.

I will miss these views from my home,  if we sell this house,

but hope that I will experience the same type of views in the new one (whenever that may be!)

I am busy, busy Decking the Halls with boughs and trees!

However, I am taking a break to spend time with my family to gather and give thanks

for our many, many blessings.

So I wish you all a most wonderful Thanksgiving!

Come back on Monday and see part of my Great Room reveal and a fantastic Giveaway!!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING …. and to those who are traveling …. SAFE TRAVELS!!

    Beautiful scenes, Shirley! I know what you mean about trying to bring snow to your Christmas tree lol! I tried so hard to bring in the feeling of winter when we lived in Florida; fires going in the fireplaces while keeping the AC at frigid, among other things. It’s hard to accomplish when the thermometer reads 80 degrees outside Ha!Ha! Looking forward to your Xmas reveals. Wishing you and yours a most lovely Thanksgiving, sweetie.

  9. Glorious scenery and foliage Shirley! Happy Thanksgiving to you and safe travels. Looking forward to seeing your reveal on Monday. ♥

  11. Shirley, you do have beautiful views. I remember Thanksgiving was beautiful in coastal Virginia, not far from your area. Here in West Virginia our trees are almost bare.

    Looking forward to your Christmas post, I know they will be gorgeous.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours !

  13. Pretty!!! I wish I would have bought more boxwood wreaths when they were on sale. They’re perfect! With pineapple in the center, that just looks like everything welcoming! I love that view out your windows. We take it for granted sometimes, but spew sure miss it when it’s gone and all there is out there is bare trees and brown grass.

  14. Hi Shirley, I didn’t know that you used to live in Florida. What a gorgeous view you have! It must be very pleasing and very therapeutic. I love everything pineapple, needless to say how much I appreciate your display. Nice work as usual.
