Decorating for fall makes my heart happy. Tonight I draped grapevines and twinkle lights over the hutch in my front room. This is the first thing one sees upon entering our home. I stacked an old dough bowl with squash, gourds and Indian corn. Tomorrow I'll polish up my favorite copper bowl and fill it with dried Hydrangea blossoms. Apple/cinnamon pot pourri tints the air with the scents of the season.
Chris is busy stacking cords of wood in the basement. When I open the cellar door the smell of trees and soil wafts up. A basement full of wood makes me feel rich as we head into the cold, long Maine winter. It is a whole different kind of decorating.
