Tuesday Display Chain...

I am joining in on Misi's Tuesday Display Chain, it is great fun! Click under the picture to visit all of the fun blogs that participated and join in all of the fun next week!
This week Misi enlightened us how at this time of the year the squirrels are scurrying about getting ready for the season coming up. Although the squirrel is not my favorite animal I do admire their industriousness and their abilities to hoard enough to get them through the winter. Misi asked us how we get ready for the season... 
Saturday, the first day of fall. Like the little tree squirrels I too have a ritual for getting things all ready for the coming months. The first thing I do is decorate my apartment both inside and outside. Here are some pictures. First of my outside which most of you have seen already.

Then there is the inside of my apartment. I have just started with the prim decorating so bear with me. 




I also get out my warmer quilts and blankets to help with keeping the heating bills a little under control.  I keep it pretty chilly so my favorite quilt goes on the back of my sofa within easy reach while reading or watching TV. My SIL made me this quilt so it is very special to me and nice and warm.
My bed gets a new covering and also gets nice warm flannel sheets on it...yes more bears, they are nice quiet room mates! LOL
I also get out my favorite fall/winter scents of candles. I think I need to buy more because I burn a lot through these long months. I have cinnamon sticks and pumpkin pie spice. I just love the spicy smells on the chilly days and nights. 
Well that is about it for me. I have 20 minutes left of Tuesday so I better get this linked up. Thanks Misi for this fun thing to participate in.

Looks like you are all decorated for Fall. Love the pumpkin and the basket with bittersweet...so pretty!! Oh...I love burning Fall candles this time of the year. You are so right that the smells of them are perfect on the chilly days and nights.

Everything is fall lovely at your house, Cindi! I LOVE that quilt on the back of your couch that your SIL made you....what a wonderful and special gift! It's so pretty and I bet it's great to cozy under!

Bringing out the candles and having the yummy smells is a highlight of fall to me too and it just continues right on into the Christmas and winter season!

Have a great day, Cindi!

Fun post Cindi....glad to see you're in the chain. (I missed out last week, but tagged along this week....) Great little vignette with the pumpkin and basket - those simple pleasures of fall sometimes make the biggest statements. And, candles....yum...I burn them year-round, but something about the fall that makes the scents even richer and more satisfying....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hi Cindi,
Your place looks so cozy! I love this time of year even though it gets quite chilly. It's a perfect excuse to snuggle up with a blanket, light a candle, and maybe watch a nice movie (or sesame street if it's Noah's choice :))

Hi Cindi! It was so sweet to connect with you tonight. I have missed you! Loved seeing your prim decorations. I love prim too. So homey & warm. I wish it was time for flannel sheets here! We are still having triple digit temps. :( So I eagerly await fall. Want some new siggies?? :) Been so long, but I'd sure love to send some your way. :) Love you Cindi! Have a blessed day!
