My Condo ‘Happy List’

We love spending time in our condo in the mountains of NC and there’s no better time to visit than Fall.

I thought I would share some photos of my Fall décor here in the condo.

And there’s an abundance of bittersweet at the park and along the roadways this year.

It grows wild in a tangled vine.

Vee said...

I've just come back from getting more...oh my goodness...talk about "tangled" vine. You would have laughed to see me wrestling with the stuff! It sure does look pretty in your decor. Mountain colors...good one. I also noticed on my drive that now that most leaves are gone, we can see the mountains clearly now! Enjoy your time in the mountains!

Laurie said...

What a lovely view of a morning! I love the candle arrangement. I don't do a lot of fall decorating but I do have several pumpkin/candle/leaves arrangements I've made. I like the bright colors. :-)

Enjoy that mountain air and the invigorating autumn weather! Love the decorations, and would love to find some of that vine around here for clipping, LOL.

Olive said...

Oh how I wish I was in the North Carolina mountains. They are so lovely. I have been happily listing to music and getting Christmas decor priced. The kitty went out today for a short time-she thinks she's something. xo, olive

Karen said...

NanaDiana said...

I just love bittersweet and we can't find it anywhere around here anymore. It is my favorite Fall thing.

Your view is beautiful and your decorations are fun! xo Diana

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Diane, you always remind me of one of those happy happy people...and I love it.

It's funny for us to see bittersweet growing wild by the roadside, here it's either fake, or very expensive and brought in.
