Welcome to my Fall Home


For me, FALL conjures up childhood memories
of trick or treating with friends and siblings,
costume parties,
pine nuts roasting in the oven, and
Thanksgiving dinner at grandma's house.


More than any other time of year,
FALL brings out
the nesting instinct in me.


Some people do spring cleaning,
I do FALL cleaning.

I want to get everything fluffed and clean
for the holidays ahead.






Candles are placed throughout the house
creating a warm glow as the scent
of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and fresh baked cookies
fills the air.



Quilts and throws are washed and put out,
creating cozy spots for snuggling on chilly FALL evenings.




When the house feels all warm and cozy,
being in the kitchen suddenly feels
like a pleasure instead of a chore.

I love stirring a big pot of soup on the stove,
or pulling something hot and yummy from the oven.


And just for fun, here's a little silly Halloween in the kitchen window.


I'm joining my Bloggerette Sorority sisters
as we share our FALL HOMES.
