Where do you reside?I was born and live in Russia, Moscow. But my great-grandparents are from Ukraine and Poland.

With colder weather on the horizon, it’s time to welcome fall and all its glory with open arms. You know what that means—pumpkin farm visits, corn mazes, and epic color-changing nature. But to get you even more excited for the season ahead, know that you don’t have to leave the house to soak up autumn’s best offerings. That’s right—you can invent your own indoor oasis with any of these easy and beautiful fall decorating ideas. Make your home look and feel as cozy as possible with simple additions like festive wreaths, dining room decor, and plaid pillows and blankets. Shake things up in the kitchen, for starters, with a warm decorative runner or forest-inspired wallpaper. As for the table, you’ll be blown away by the amount of creative centerpiece options, from wheat sprays in classy cloches to a carved-out pumpkin vase. Redecorating on a budget? No problem—just snag some leaves and branches from a backyard tree, then put them on display in a glass vase. This fall décor will get you in the seasonal spirit like nothing else. And, after you’ve completed the inside, don’t forget to perfect your front porch with our outdoor fall ideas too.

(Vide0 link HERE.) We don’t recall who alerted us to the amazing Michael Grab, who is a master at balancing stones. There are many videos of him making his incredible ephemeral sculptures, but we are struck by this one taken from HIS point of view. You can see how he feels the rock, patiently waiting to find the balance of a giant rock on a small round stone.
