autumn overlooked?

Is it just me or is the season of autumn being overlooked and forgotton? Driving home tonight after my sons soccer practice, we actually saw christmas lights! and that includes christmas trees as well!

Now, my son is only 10, and loves christmas as much as the next kid. But even he was shocked and disappointed by this! What does everyone else think about this phenomenon?   {or at least the creative blogging community}

As for me, I currently have my fall/autumn decorations on display: wreath, mini-scarecrows, maize corn, pumpkins, pine cones, etc. My blog header pic is from just outside my front door!

What date do most feel is appropriate to put up a christmas tree and or lights?

So, what do you think?

new issue - check this out!

To come home after a mediocre day at work to THIS in my mailbox!! The new do it yourself mag from better homes and gardens. This baby is jam-packed with SO many ideas - don't know where to begin - maybe just at the beginning!

imagine this - glass-front -  stuffed with fabric!
my dream. . .

could really use this - ok, want it!
very unique

I am so into fabric flowers lately - these are cute!
and have so many potential applications

here they are on that pillow

that's all the pics I have - you just have to buy this magazine! it's marked winter 2009, but I got mine in my mailbox. . .

halloween night!

Wanted to share some pics of actual Halloween night.

Some spooky stuff....

And of course, lots of trick or treaters were out!
 unfortunately, it would seem that there were more of them than houses to go to. . .

Still, lots of fun was had, and no one exactly went home empty handed!
