For whatever reason, I just have not been in the fall decorating spirit this year (...and fall is my favorite season!!) I think it's because this summer was SOOOOOO nice and I'm in denial that WINTER IS COMING (GOT-style). I usually at least decorate some pumpkins and display them around the house and outside.
I was not interested in decorating AT ALL until this:
