Goodbye Fall and Hello Christmas

Good morning and welcome in Through My Back Door! I am so happy you stopped by for a little visit. I wanted to share a little fall decorations with you before they leave. (Yes they are leaving.) (No play on words there!) I love fall! I love the colors and mums, well everything that goes along with it. In July I was looking at all the fall pictures and just counting the days until I could put "on the fall". I hope fall doesn't think I am fickle, but now I am ready to say goodbye to fall and bring out the Christmas. It really isn't my fault. Its these wonderful magazines that encourage it. Not to mention some of the blogs I read
so anyway fall is leaving Through My Back Door.
Sarahs' dough bowl fillers is one fall thing I hate to put away. I have so enjoyed them.They are just like her, they make you smile when you see them. These little pilgrims on the left were carved by my wonderful son in law.(Hope he doesn't read, this. don't want to give him the big head)lol. I have the worlds best son in law.I tell him he is my favorite.(of course he is my only one), but he is a master woodcarver. He carves and my daughter Debbie paints. They make a wonderful team. So I hate putting these little guys away. I know they could stay out until after Thanksgiving, but we don't do Thanksgiving Through My Back Door anymore, so they will move into the German cupboard until next year. However, just a hint, Santas are his specialty! Can't wait to share those with you.
Well that is a few fall images from Through My Back Door. Hopefully you enjoyed your visit. I certainly enjoyed having you Through My Back Door where life is good.


  1. Hi Betty,
    Everything looks just wonderful. I love all of your Fall touches. I am thinking about putting away my Fall, too and getting out the Christmas decorations. I've never done it before Thanksgiving, but am thinking about it this year. I have our family dinner here every Thanksgiving, so I feel like I can't decorate for Christmas, but I'm sure nobody would mind! I would like to get it done early, so I won't feel rushed after Thanksgiving to do it. I can't wait to see all of your Christmas decor and those wonderful Santa's from your #1 SIL. Thanks for sharing! Have a great week.

  2. Betty, your home is beautiful. I love all of your Fall decor - can't wait to see what Christmas brings.
