So Fall Begins With Labor Day

I've barely settled in with basic decorating, let alone focusing on the season.
But, one thing that symbolizes the season to me is family.

It's this time of year when I think of family reunions - not just in the literal sense, but, in the spirit of gathering during my favorite time of year.

My tribute to the season is my Heritage Nook. There was a space in this house that needed a focus. What better one than family.

The space contains family Bibles - dating back to the late 1800s - and precious photos.
A mirror serves as a symbol that when I look into it, I remember those who came before me.

Fall ... a season of change. Life is but a series of changes that create history and form the future.

What a beautiful little Nook! I love the old bibles. My grandparents have several from their families that are just beautiful too. Visiting from the Inspired Room.

I've never thought of doing something like that- Wonderful idea.

It is wonderful how you have captured something so dear to your heart and are able to display your families pictures and bibles. You are right, fall is such a family time. A tucking in of sorts where meals are shared more often and memories made. I really like your little nook area!
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
