Fall Fantasy

When you live in the Arizona desert, you have to create the illusion of seasons.  It may seem strange, when the temps are still 100+, but making our home feel like "fall" brings a giddiness to my being.  The following are just a few of my fall touches.

This is the mantel in our sunroom.  What's unusual about this mantel is that we don't actually have a fireplace, just a mantel.  When The Man (aka my sweet hubby) built our sunroom a couple of years ago, he decided to build the mantel for me because I've always wanted one.  Yep, he's a real sweetie and super talented as well.  I love the mantel for all the decorating possibilities.


This is our garden shed with lovely fall wreaths.  This building is another creation by The Man.

This is my dining room tablescape.  Had all of these things on hand & just got busy having creative fun!


Hope you enjoyed!

Love your fall decor!!! In the coastal South we kind of have to create fall for ourselves as well! LOL

I just saw that you're following me! Thanks so much! I know what you mean about creating an illusion. I'm in Louisiana & while it isn't 100 right now it was 90 over the weekend. It makes it difficult to get in the mood for fall. I love your wreaths & centerpiece. I look forward to seeing the rest of your home!

I really like your photo's on your Blog title, lovely, and now I know, the Garden Building, love it and the doors. In checking out your blog I found it and thought I would let you know you two did a great job.
Here in Nevada all I see is the old stand by a true SHED!
