Autumn Bird House :: Three Hundred One

Our Bird House is getting all dressed up for the holidays. It makes me happy to feel the season, to see it making our home cozy, warm, inviting. I'm already anticipating Thanksgiving! I visualize the day we bring Max home from school, wearing socks in the kitchen, everyone suggesting favorite dishes to prepare, greeting cards in the mail. Even chores will be more tolerable with a favorite holiday movie playing. Maybe I can have a Laundry Movie Party?! Bring your clean clothes over to fold, hang, press, while we play Miracle on 34th Street, or Meet Me in St Louis! Day-dreaming, and anticipating, feeling thankful, what pleasures... It's a Wonderful Life! {*wink*}

With Infinity More Monkeys, a picture a day.

  1. Oh WOW - what great decorations on your porch. It looks so welcoming and happy. We don't tend to dress for Autumn/Halloween here (most of the decorations are a bit tacky, that I've seen), but maybe I should copy your lead. It looks amazing. I think I'll decorate my new garden studio for every season - that would be fun!!

    1. Thank you! The halloween side of the season can get wild, but I can't imagine going through this time of year without some pumpkins and a touch of spookiness. We saw gorgeous (and tasteful) displays in New England... everything about the lighting and natural environment inspires decorating with harvest themes.

  2. I'm so inspired to gather up, arrange, celebrate. I'm already seeing our season through fresh, more appreciative eyes; thank you for all of this.

    1. It's irresistible! Now, please come west and help me see our environment through more appreciative eyes! These palm trees and eucalyptus aren't getting any love from me!
