5 Fall Decorating Ideas

Posted by on Aug 26, 2014 in fall | 7 comments

Fall…Could you please hurry up and get here?

I can’t go outside without melting.  And it doesn’t get any better in my car.

My air conditioner isn’t working in my front seat, which is why I am the crazy woman driving around town with my windows down when it is 95 degrees outside. And that’s not even counting the heat index or the humidity…sweet mercy.

I find that if I blast the air in the backseat and roll the windows down in the front, it creates a sort of air tunnel effect that brings the cool air from the back to the front.  It isn’t totally effective, but it’s all I’ve got for now.

I’ve got to find a time to take it in and have it fixed!

But with school delivery and pick up and Cross Country practice and soccer practice

…I can’t seem to spare my car for longer than about 4 hours.

I’m thinking that it would take longer than 4 hours to get it fixed. 🙂

So until then I will just think of Fall…and the coolness that is sure to come!

Here are 5 of my favorite fall decorating ideas from last year:

So there you have it…a few of my favorite fall decorating ideas!

And think of me when you’re driving around town with your windows rolled up with your air conditioner blasting and your children begging that you will turn it down because they are freezing… 🙂

Life to the full!

  1. Great inspiration! I keep telling myself its too early to start thinking about fall decorations but really it’s not and I just have to accept that! LOL

  2. Gorgeous fall inspiration. Sorry about the air in your car. Can’t imagine how uncomfortable. Started posting the new house decorating in our foyer!


  3. What size wreath did you use, I can get a 10 inch or 18 inch from the craft store.

  4. Hi Melissa,

    Putting autumn goodies on the shelf for a minute, I love the blue color of the door — your wheat wreath is hanging on it. Do you recall the paint color you used on this door?



  5. These are beautiful and all look so elegant. I love the rustic look of the bushel basket and always put mums in them on my porch in the Fall.

  6. OH heavens if it’s anything like what it was in KY I sure do feel bad for you. Arrrggghhh, huh? Maybe while you’re car is being repaired you could rent one with an a/c for one day anyway. Just a thought. Don’t the girls complain bout being too hot when you’re taxiing them around?
    We lived in Tucson from time I was 10 yrs. old and don’t remember being bothered by the heat there and believe me it was hot but much dryer than what it is now. Can you wave paper fan at yourself while you’re driving? Anything would be better than melting,driving in your bathing suit?
    Love the pretty decorations, hard to think of Fall cool when it’s 95 there. You know how loved your flower arrangements are.
    I won’t tell you about our weather here now but it won’t last. Always does this, get a cool spell then wham hotter than dickens again for weeks. Likes to play with us. Tonight was almost dark by little after 8 and seems like it was just a week ago was still light at 9 p.m. Hope you can get your car fixed. Happy week

  7. Right now it looks like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
