Autumn Decorating Ideas 2012

Although I've experienced all the four seasons individually, each in the different countries of my visits, I've never stayed in a foreign country long enough (2 weeks max) to enjoy a season in its entirety, never knowing what the changing of seasons is like as one season ends and another begins. Do you count the days 'til  winter melts into spring?  How is it like to say goodbye to the last days of summer- sad as the days begin to lose the light yet excitedly looking forward to the colourful arrival of Fall?
Yes, it's hot and sunny here all year round and a rainy day is as cold as it gets but I'm not complaining. I love waking up in the morning, assured that almost every day is a beach day and certain that the sky doesn't go dark until 7:30 PM. I love that I can step out of the house in my tees, shorts and flip-flops any time and not worry about frostbite or shattering my hip, slipping on a snow-covered driveway. And it's comforting to know that even when it rains, the sun will come out from behind the clouds in a short while.
But then again, it means I'll never get to witness autumn's spectacular show of colours when nature changes into her autumn wardrobe of gold, orange, red, brown....  I'll never get to visit a pumpkin patch or decorate my porch with jack-o-lanterns and scarecrows....

I'm actually impatiently waiting for Fall and can't wait to admire breathtaking Fall foliage, drool over pictures of pumpkins pies, enjoy hay rides ... all these through your eyes in the photos you share.

Fall is definitely my fave season and it also means my bloggy buddies who are MIA  all summer are back!!! Yay!!!
Following are some autumn decorating ideas I love, love, love and wish, wish, wish I could do.

  1. Hi Veronica,
    Beautiful Autumn decorations this year,so elegant and classy! I wish I could have some of them or have the possibilities to do them myself! Guess,at this point ,only the artsists and mostly the Autumn cold will paint such beauties we can be always pleased with!
    Still no rain here and it is a pitty to see all turning yellow- brown,the trees are getting tears -yellow leaves...
    Nevertheless,I keep a light in my soul thinking of you-you are my rainbow!

  2. I am always so jealous of people who can decorate like this. Maybe this year I will finally get around to doing it...lol

  3. I like the seasons. Just when you are weary of one season, a new one begins. I can't imagine being where it is sunny all the time--I get sort of tired of that because I'm used to the seasons.

    You can't imagine the lovely smell of leaves in autumn. There is a sweet smell that is heavenly. Come visit me in autumn, Veronica. I'll take you to a pumpkin patch!

  4. I love all the pictures! My favorite season is also summer...people think I'm crazy!

  5. Beautiful autumn ideas! I wish I was creative enough to do them.
