As I confessed earlier, I completely skipped the Halloween dec this year.
No one eyed porcelain dolls in bird cages or glitter beaked ravens.
Not even a grinning jack pumpkin.
However, I could not allow the season to pass without a bit of Thanksgiving finery.
Autumn is just so lovely on her own that I could not resist asking her to grace the porch.
She willingly obliged.
I became bolder and she didn't flinch.
She was such a gracious guest that I invited her to tiptoe gently through the door.
Quietly she graced a nook here and a table top there.
Her bold color outside my windows is brilliant enough to see that a quiet indoor palette will suffice.
Just enough to enhance this season of gratitude.
Plus, when Black Friday hits, I can crank the carols and swiftly transform to a Christmas Wonderland.
So much for my moment of grace, heehee.
"No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace, as I have seen in one autumnal face."
Yours in autumn's splendor, P.
