RED all over

I know the first day of fall was last Wednesday, but Sunday's rainy weather got me thinking fall.

I only left the house once to go to the grocery store and I had to run through the (cold, fall-like) rain. Autumn was definitely on my mind. 

I love how PUBLIX has those bins of cheap-o flowers 3 bunches for $12. I always have a go-to choice: white mini roses, white carnations, and sometimes yellow or pink mini-roses. But as I went over to the flower section, my eyes were drawn to RED RED RED. Oooo... its so fall!

The mini-roses have a red-ish orange-ish hue. I break up the bunches and scatter them through the house. I took a few and put in a Jameson glass on my coffee table.

They are so pretty. They are almost pumpkin colored. 

I also put some on my kitchen window seal. They'll be gorgeous once they open up. 

I put an identical bunch on the table at the front door. They say "Welcome! Its fall!" 

The bunch of leaves are from a bush in my yard. I have no idea what kind of bush it is, but i think they are so pretty with those green and white leaves. 

I put another bunch of leaves in a fish bowl on my kitchen table. I plucked the leaves off and covered the water with them. Then I stuck some small red flowers in between the leaves. 

I think they look almost Christmasy. This would be good decor for then.

I love love love carnations! They are so happy. Like I said, I usually get white, but the reds at PUBLIX were sooo red. I had to have them. 

They almost look like they are made of paper. 

I used my blue birthday glasses as a vase and proudly have them displayed on my antique hutch.

I had also pickled some onions and tomatoes this summer and well, I can't get the darned thing opened. So it was just sitting in my fridge, looking pretty. I thought (since I wasn't going to be eating them) that they would look fall-ish on my hutch. 

My pedicure was even fall-ish (on my monkey toes). 

My polish colors are slowly drifting from pinks and super bright colors to reds (duh) and dark dark colors. 

I have a red room at my house that we call (surprise) "the red room." I have been wanting to paint it super bright blue for months, but all of my friends have been successfully talking me out of it. And on a rainy fall day, it just makes me want to cuddle up and hang out. Red is cozy....

I can sit peacefully looking out the window with my pal, the ram, staring over me (creeeeepy and dusty... ick). 

My "red room" wall of original art. 

On a related note of all things red... it's HONEY CRISP apple time!

Waving goodbye to pink lady apples and welcoming Honey Crisps. They even carried them in a special bin at publix. I had one on Monday and boy was it crispy. 

Crispy and Saweeet!

I look forward to scarfs and new jackets when it becomes fall. I also like to lie in the leaves in the yard. 


I like comments... I do... don't be shy.
