Making Your Home Sing Monday - Fall!

Making your home sing Mondays
This is my first time joining Moms The Word for her Monday Meme. It's a time to share what we are doing to bring a little somethin' extra special to our homes. If you'd like to read more posts or link one up yourself, pop on over.
Here are 2 things I did to make my home sing...
Well, I felt it,...I finally felt it! I felt Fall, I know, I know, there's still 1 more day until "It" appears, but I am just certain I felt it. It first hit me while I was in JoAnn Fabrics, yup, I was walking through the floral department and these deep reds, oranges and yellows called out to me..."Fall is here, take us home to your table!". :) So, I did (it was a buy one/get one sale!) is the centerpiece I've put together for my "Fall Table"...

I had to take a close up of the little photo on there...that's my hubby and our son about 11 years ago! Cute! :)

Another reason I know Fall has arrived is that I was working out in my vegetable garden yesterday evening...AND I could breathe!!! I was out there a good 3 hours, hauling and spreading bags of compost and mulch, digging up weeds and turning old bean plants, loosening up packed soil, and I could humidity!!!! I was happy to get the garden ready for planting... :)

How did you make your Home Sing today?
"Let the Word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God." Colossians 3:16
Have a beautiful praise filled day!


  1. I wouldn't necessarily say NO humidity, LOWER humidity maybe but not NO! LOL
    Your center piece looks beautiful my friend.
    Love you!

  2. Oh that is a lovely center piece.

    I took out all my fall decorations early last week. We decorate everything. It kind of throws up Autumn. lol

    My kids used to be shocked when they went over friends homes and the home was not decorated to the season/holiday. All over.

    Now they get it. We are the wacky noodles who do that. lol. Its not normal.

    Life is good.

    I wish I could send you some coolness. And you can send some HEAT!

  3. Hi Kathy,

    I just got our all my Fall decorations this weekend, too! We have a mixture of Halloween and Fall seasonal items. I love decorating this time of year. Tablecloths, knick-knacks (my favorite are these little ceramic ghosts that I just place randomly around and watch as the kids discover them). We made Fall napkins out of fabric and I even made Halloween curtains for the dining room. Don't know what got into me.

    Thanks for sharing all the inspiration! I also wanted to let you know I found your blog through the BlogFrog network and wanted to stop by and say welcome! So nice to discover your blog.

  4. You're pretty crafty there Kathy.

    It looks great.


  5. That's a beautiful centerpiece!

  6. Oh it looks so beautiful! I wished I could get a closer look but I love all the things you put out there.

    I have to admit that I haven't done much for fall. I don't "decorate" for fall, as such, but I used to pull out different accessories, like a quilt or wooden and heavier knicknacks to decorate with and warm things up a bit.

    I need to do that again and change things up a bit. Thanks for the encouragement and thanks for joining up!

  7. Love your centrepiece! We just don't do that kind of decorating for the season apart from Christmas here in the UK. We are kind of boring like that!!! Love your veg garden as well.

    Love Collette xxx

  8. Yes, Fall has hit here too, in spirit at least. A trip to the fabric store usually does it for me too! Thanks for coming to my blog. I have a son who wants to go into the military also.

  9. I LOVE your fall decorations!!!

    I worked on getting my fall stuff out on some things done...and made a mess of others :)
    BUT it will get all cleaned up before the retreat!!!

  10. Kathy,

    I loved your centerpiece! And I love you!

  11. I love the fall table centerpiece!! I can't wait to break out all the fall candle colors!

  12. Wow! It looks great! :D I got mine out right before my mom and aunt came. I love fall! :D

  13. Happy Fall!! Your centerpiece looks wonderful! And good job on all that gardening! Might be nice if I actually went out and at least cleaned up the yard - LOL!
