I Just Don't

Most of you who read my blog probably don't know that I do not celebrate halloween. It's not exactly against my religion or anything. I just don't agree with it, and I never have liked it, so I don't celebrate it. It's as simple as that. Tomorrow night the porch light will be off, and my husband and I will be hiding out in our bedroom in the back of the house with the laptop for him, and some crafts for me. I know, I know, I sound like Scrooge. Well bahh humbug! I don't judge those who do celebrate halloween. I just don't like it myself, I do really love the Autumn season though, so I thought I would post a few simple ideas for fall arrangements.

I found the leaves, and a few weeds(as most people might call them) on my walk around my neighborhood. So you see, simple, and easy! A few vases from thrift shops and yard sales, some lace, and you have simple, beautiful, and inexpensive fall arrangements!
