How do you decorate for autumn?

It's getting cool in New England. Farmers are selling their pumpkins. The school buses start rolling tomorrow.

As much as I'll miss the summer, I love the fall: the breezes, the foliage, the decorating. I plan to put out autumn wreaths, gourds and a big bowl of apples this week.

What do you do around your home to mark the change in seasons? If you've got a photo or a blog post you'd like to share, please email me or leave a comment here with a link for a roundup later this week.

I'm leaving you with a final look at summer: Above is a house on Loon Island in Newfound Lake in New Hampshire, where we vacationed this summer (at the lake, not that house. But, wouldn't that have been fun?).

And a tip for next year: Here's a good way (above) to stay warm and dry while touring Newfound Lake when the rain unexpectedly appears.

I can't wait to decorate for fall! I bring in lots of natural elements, then once Halloween hits, I bust out all the fun stuff!

I'm hoping to decorate our home for autumn with a "Sold" sign on the front lawn. And maybe some mums.

Thank you for posting the picture of Newfound Lake. I so love it there. We lived in NH for a time and vacationed at the lake. What a gorgeous place and what good memories! I MISS NH...

I love that last picture of you. Reminds me a bit of cousin "IT" from the Adam's Family :)
