Fall Decorating

The air has been quite a bit cooler here for the past two weeks and I've really been hoping that it was just a fluke and some nice 78 degree days were still coming our way.  I've finally resigned myself to the fact that it's time to decorate for fall.  Don't get me wrong, it's not that I dislike fall, in fact  I  like LOVE fall, it is my favorite season!!!  I went down into my dungeon and pulled out a small bag of fall decorations.  Ok, well the only thing in it was a few pine cones and a small string of leave garland.  Boo.  I swear I had more, maybe I threw them out during one of my purging stages.  Anyways, I made my way over to the dollar store because fall decorations were not in the budget this paycheck.  This is what I found, obviously they were each $1.

The pot color is ugly but besides that, not bad for $1 each.  I was hoping I had enough chalkboard spray paint left and maybe I could spray the pots with chalkboard paint.  No go on the paint.  Next option, use my terra cot planters that I have and never know what to do with.  Just like that, I had some cute, simple and cheap fall decorations.

Now where to put them?  Here is what I came with for my mantle, not the best but it works for now!  Although I am open to ideas and suggestions!!!  I also included a picture of my garage sale find, my 50 cent white bird, I really liked it and that was the only thing I found at that sale but it was worth it. 


  1. Looks great! I have three of those old windows in my basement ready for decorating. LOVE the mantle!
