This was what I saw when I looked out the window yesterday, before we got several more inches of white lake-effect fluff.

Water Snow Scene in November

I am so not ready for snow.

Leaves are still coming down.

What is Mother Nature thinking?

Does she not know… Winter does not officially arrive for another 36 days!!

On the other hand… it is beautiful.

Regardless… I still have fall and Thanksgiving on the brain.

If you do too, you’ll want to check out my tutorial for making beautiful natural leaf chargers for your Thanksgiving table.  Be watching for my Thanksgiving tablescape on Tuesday, followed up by another fun tutorial for the centerpiece on Thursday.  I think you’ll love it.  In the meantime… you can check out my past Thanksgiving tablescapes: here & here & here & here.

And speaking of Thanksgiving…

There’s still time to dress your home and table with these extraordinary Great Ideas!

  1. Diane–you are so lucky to have such a beautiful scene outside your window! But I agree, what is up with Mother Nature? We usually don’t have much in the way of snow here in Portland, but we had some freezing rain this past week! It’s not even Thanksgiving yet!

    Be Well–The Lady Kay
