Pretty Things

I admit I'm a sucker for all pretty things. I love simple things, yet meaningful. I went out shopping recently to decorate our home for this season with a (very) limited budget. I'm pleased how it turned out, but I think Summer was secretly hoping for those neon orange battery-operated pumpkins blasting brightly that she liked on the aisle while shopping at Home Depot. I have a feeling that when she grows up, becomes a mommy, she will go on the hunt for white and tiger striped pumpkins, orange flowers and simple candles. The kids' artwork are found among the decor... the pine cones they painted and forrest's painted pumpkin from preschool. They make me happy.
