Fall Is In the Air

Is In the Air 

{even though the high on Tuesday, Sept. 20 was 100°}

The Autumn Equinox is Thursday, September 22, 2016, and all around the internet there are signs of Fall. Pumpkins of all sizes and shapes and materials... velvet, sticks, bandanas, ticking, Cinderella, bumpy ones, freshly painted ones, pallet board, ... 

Be sure to check out all the links to this week's Monday Social #2 for some fresh ideas for how to decorate with pumpkins. New links have been added since the party began on Sunday afternoon. The latest link is from a blog new to me, and I love her bandana pumpkins and excellent tutorial.  

Here's a tiny peek at the bandana pumpkins created by Sarah at Sadie Seasongoods . After checking out Sadie's pumpkins, hop back to Monday Social #2 to see other links you may have missed. There is a hand-painted pumpkin on pallet wood with tutorial that may inspire your next pumpkin creation. 

Mark your calendars for October 3-7, 2016 when Katie at Let's Add Sprinkles is hosting a week-long blog hop, Fall In Love With Texas, that features over 20 Texas bloggers. More Fall inspiration is coming your way. We Texans are waiting until October for our Fall tour in hopes the temperatures will be cooler than 100°.   

Here's a peek at Fall on my new covered porch/deck. You can see more of it on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 when Botanic Bleu is on the second day line-up for the Fall In Love With Texas blog tour.  

Fresh pumpkins used with natural elements are the ones I favor. Wild, curly, twining tendrils add flair. Have you noticed Fall decorations at Botanic Bleu are not your usual fall colors? See more of a reader favorite Fall post at Not Your Usual Fall Colors

Yes, Fall is in the air all around the internet.... 

with much more beauty, imagination, and inspiration yet to come.
