Fall is approaching

So, the kids are back in school, the holiday makers have left town and we are adjusting to our new schedules. It's time to put away summer. Pass through your home and remove all of summers clutter to its rightful home or out the door! Switch out your summery decor of throws, cushions and floral arrangements for warmer fall tones. We can't stop the changes in the seasons but we can embrace them!
