Add some simple touches to celebrate the seasons.
A home that has some seasonal touches looks like a home that is cared for and loved. It says that its keeper has taken a little time to do something that is beyond the ordinary stretch of days. If I look inside a house and nothing tells me what season it is, it feels a bit sterile or detached.
I admit that I go all out for fall decorating--inside, outside, every nook and cranny! I adore fall...the cooler temperatures, the return to routine, the spectacular beauty.
I enjoy decorating for Christmas too. (You can take a peek at the farmhouse dressed for Christmas by clicking ~here~.)
The other seasons have more subtle touches--paper snowflakes, winter berries, tea tray on the kitchen counter...forsythia clippings, lighter colored dishes and trays...flowers inside and out, maybe a sea shell here or there.
"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
