What’s with all the Christmas lights and snow decor all over? Umm. . . last time I checked Thanksgiving has not come and gone yet.  And it’s Christmas already? What?! Christmas Season doesn’t start for another 7  weeks!  Nooo way man am I letting anyone stiff me of my Fall!

Chronology:

1. Thanksgiving (Harvest Season a.k.a. keep your Fall decor!)

2. Advent Season (4 weeks long starting Nov. 28th!)

3. theeennn Christmas Season which starts on Dec. 25th and lasts until Epiphany (you know, the 12th Day of Christmas).

So, since it’s November and just past peak around here,  I’m still enjoying Fall inside our home.

Here are some of the simple ways I decorated my small space with what I had lying around.

While they’re waiting to be eaten apples can serve a decorative purpose. . .

Don’t have any fresh apples? Paint an ugly fake one!

Grab some cute Fall stuff like gourds or leaves and fill those empty vases!

Lanterns work well, too.

Don’t buy stuff! Grab it from outside!

When the berries dry they look rustic and double as Winter decor.

Fake plants work, too.

Got any Fall prints you can frame?

We go this watercolor print from a street artist in Rome, Italy back in the college days on our semester abroad when we first began dating. I love that it reminds me of that special time in the beginning!

Until I see snow on the ground I’m not going to accept that Winter is just around the corner. . . really, it’s not! . . . And no, that wasn’t frost on my car. . . I’m serious! . . . You’re just imagining it! . . . uh, um, *grumbles*.
