Remember to remember November...

With so much Christmas in our face as the month of November begins...and I know, for so many Shoppes, that the Christmas Holiday Season is a time of the year that is important to their success..I have been in retail for over 30 years...so I do know how important it is!

But with all that...it's sometimes hard for us to remember to remember what the month of November really means...so let's not forget the November Autumn Season.

Cooler temperatures bring longer nights to snuggle with your loved ones...cozy sweaters...slow cooking food with the smells lingering throughout the house...a time to come together and to remember that there is always something to be thankful for...

I want to share with you one of my favorite magazines that I found this season...

SEASONAL CELEBRATIONS
Autumn
It is packed full of wonderful fall decorating ideas...beautiful tablescapes...and the yummiest recipes!


 Every page of this great magazine is so inspiring...one that I will keep coming back to year after year...here is just a small glimpse of what's inside...


PUMPKINS...PUMPKINS...and more pumpkins...

Creating a Vintage Farmhouse feel...

My little Farmhouse...

You can create a Farmhouse Country feel and style in your home...where ever you may live! Whether it is a one room studio, city apartment, simple track home even a travel trailer! 

I have been doing it for years...right now I am living in a 3 room, 500 sq ft apartment in a home built in the 30's. Here is a peak at my little Farmhouse Country Cottage.

This is an amazing vintage basket I found at one of my local thrift shops I frequent regularly! There are so many great treasures out there to find that are affordable...

I have furnished my entire house this way!

Here is a corner of my kitchen into my living and dining room...

One of my favorite spots!
