Fall Village

I love little village sets.  I have had these for quite some time and always love when it is that time of year to set up some of my villages.  I try to keep the display simple.  For instance, by using books to make some homes up on "hills" makes for a sophisticated but clean look.  I also like to add little surprises in my village.  As you can see there are little ceramic pumpkins that are not in scale, but fit in nicely.  I feel sometimes less is more and the "unexpected" can really make a difference.

Halloween Entry-Way Display

This is a picture of my entry way that I decorated for Halloween.  It is simple, yet festive.  I can't wait to put out my Pilgrim's in a few weeks!!  I love how I can leave most of the fall leaves and flowers for several months and mix them with Thanksgiving decor.
