    The gift shop where I volunteer has the most gorgeous velvet pumpkins - we don't have our fall merchandise out yet but they were in the stock room. Will try to remember to take a photo. They are almost like a velvet/velour texture and the fabric is folded to simulate the pumpkin shape, so cute.

    I received the Michaels Craft Store ad this week. They had soft muted fall colors in their display. I thought that was a nice way for the idea of fall to enter the homes of those who aren't ready for the end of summer.

    I went to Walmart this morning and they have some really cute Fall things this year. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to browse.

    I've been wanting to get out to Hobby Lobby but I know I'll just spend money so I've been staying away! lol

    Was upstairs last night and took a moment to just look at all my pretty fall things - started to get that little thrill! :) I see some Pinterest browsing in my future!

    I am getting so anxious to decorate for fall. I did put my tiny terra cotta pumpkin that I got in a bag of potpourri for a wedding gift 20 years ago out on the counter in the kitchen yesterday. It’s always the first thing I put out! Just a little early reminder that fall is coming soon!

    I restrain myself until the first week of HGP - then I at LEAST put up the fall wreath on the front door. Usually put up the rest of the fall decor the first full week of September....can't wait!!!!

    If it brings you joy, then now is the time to start putting it out!!! :)

    If our schedule wasn't so hectic (first day of school today, etc.) then I would probably be doing something similar - as it is I am looking forward to this weekend - I may break out the fall wreath for the front door at the very least.

    Go for it, HW2! I'd be counting the days until September 1 because that's when I start putting things here and there but it's not going to happen this year so I'll be decorating and enjoying the season through all of you!

    I am looking forward to my first Pumpkin Spice Latte - wish Starbucks would hurry up and post the release date. Update: Just found it - August 28!

    I went into my local Hallmark store and they had pumpkins and acorns out on display. :D

    My decorations will probably come out at the end of September when back to school, birthdays and our community festival is finished.

    I finally took down summer stuff today but didn't get to decorating for fall yet. I'll get busy next week.
    The grocery store has tons of pumpkin spice everything here.
