Fall's last gasp

Well, here we are, the weekend preceding Thanksgiving. It doesn't seem much like it's time for Thanksgiving....I suppose it's because this is one of the earliest dates possible for Thanksgiving. I *think* that T-giving is always the 3rd Thursday of November. And November 1 was a Thursday.

But I digress. We have been putting up some Christmas stuff this weekend, mostly because I don't like putting it up after we've gotten back from being out of town. : ) So, I took a few moments to enjoy the last of my fall decor.

I tend to do a lot more of "fall" decor, rather than Halloween. Too much changing up in too little time! The only nod to Thanksgiving I do is on the mantel.

I add in a little framed quote about giving thanks and a turkey tea light holder.

An appropriate quote for me.

Then......on the front step. I posted some pics of my flowerpots a few weeks ago. Well, the frosty weather got to my sweet potato vine and killed them. What they looked like....before.

So, I cut back the vines and stuck some seed pods I found at the park, walking around with my daughter.

Does anyone know what seed pods they are? Also, you can see Christmas stuff looming in the background....

I was digging the texture it added. Don't forget to use things from the garden or nature in your planter pots. 

Enjoy fall while it lasts.....the stores have already moved on. ; )

Have a good Sunday, you lovely people.

I give up on the seed pods. I'm going to rule out sunflowers. (I know: I'm a gardening genius.)

It's okay that we don't have much in the way of Thanksgiving items over the fireplace. The best Thanksgiving items are the ones that go in the belly, not on the mantel. :)

I’d have to check with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!
