    I went to Michael's today! Their fall decor' collection is fabulous! I want one of everything....not even joking. Really soft colors, and right on trend. Loved it. Nothing was on sale yet, but I'm guessing it will be soon!

    I start on Labor Day as well. The kids go back to school next week so we're well into our school routine by then.
    I like to just add a few fall touches st first then add more as we progress into fall. I always decorate my mantle with pumpkins and leaves and berries. I have used white pumpkins for the past several years. I also love to use wood slices that my son and husband cut for me.

    Recently I've set the stage for my Christmas decorations with fall, using elements that will work for both like wooden lanterns etc. I use glass jars and candles too just switching colors and accessories.
    I love this stuff! I love hearing how everyone decorates!

    Beginning of September for me too. I can hardly wait - I just received my Fall Scent of the Season goodies in the mail from Melaleuca - Spiced Apple Cider candle, scented oil warmer, wax melt, and room spray. It's going to smell like fall in this house! I think I'm going to put up my fall tree this year - I haven't had it up for a few years.

    Pamela - I'd love to see pictures of your fall tree. I think I need to find myself a small tree this year with lights in it and change the ornaments according to holidays and season. would be nice!

    I'll post one as soon as I get it up. I think some of my decorations will need sprucing up - I use a lot of the fall picks from the craft store, bunches of leaves, berries, that sort of thing and a scarecrow instead of an angel on top!

    I'm sure it looks fantastic Pamela. Love the idea of the scarecrow on top :)

    Oooo... Michael's craft store... I haven't been there yet. I just got a Sturbridge Yankee Workshop catalog in the mail today. That is filled with warm, fall furnishings.

    I tend to decorate for fall closer to the end of September too. I've adjusted to the new schedules by that point. I start off with the apple scents/decor and artificial fall flowers. I put up artificial leaf garlands around some of our windows. Then in October, pumpkins, scarecrows and Halloween decor gets put up. In November, I put away the apples and Halloween and tuck some Turkey/Pilgrim decor in it's place. We host Thanksgiving so everything stays up until Thanksgiving weekend when we slowly transfer the fall decor for Winter/Christmas decor.

    It's looking like fall here our leaves are changing and falling here so i have started my fall decor i've been waxing leaves and gathering pinecones and have even gotten some acorns which fall from the tree near my home.We here in New England know early fall signs mean early and bad winter coming as my home is located part on the green mountians of vermont and the berkshires so here in this spot we usually get hit hard but,i love my seasons especially this one leaves are beautiful.Got alot of fall pieces like pumpkins,gourds all kinds of things which our shops are full of so my decorating season has begun.

    According to my MIL we are going to have an early fall this year here - she goes by when she first hears the cicadas - 6 weeks from that is first frost and she heard them early July this year :)

    So we'll see. She is usually right about this sort of thing though!

    We've been having a lot of cool nights and trees are starting to turn. School starts next week too! I'm starting to feel that momentum pick up on the down hill run to Christmas!!!

    Can I ask what "mums" are please?
    I've seen a few of your refer to them.

    We don't really decorate for the fall here in the UK although I do buy a few candles that I like to have lit whilst I'm sat in on a rainy day reading and relaxing.

    All your decorations sound fab though. I love seeing the leaves change and the cold fall breeze in the air. Fall in wales means the rain gets a bit colder and the wind picks up :-/ so the rain is almost horizontal :-(
