Trying to force Fall

I love Fall.  The cooler weather.  All the colors of the leaves on the trees.  The problem in the Deep South is-September is not a fall month as in the rest of the country.  It is a summer month.  It can be the hottest month of the year.  But I always try to make it be fall by bringing out my fall decorations in my house.
I always keep some kind of seasonal leaves or greenery on my fireplace mantel.  We like keeping the white Christmas lights on it year round too.  My bird collection lives on it year round.

Orange, and yellow leaves, sunflowers and cotton boles
An old vase or my grandmothers with more sunflowers and cotton
The bar with more fall pretties

White lights under the leaves
Gotta have a scare crow in the fall!
I decided to decorate the baker's rack this year

The lights behind the leaves give off a beautiful glow.
So everything is looking Fallish inside the house and then we step outside to 90+degree weather outside!  Such is life in the Deep South!  Hope you are feeling Fallish and Blessed where ever you are!
