Some Fall Around Our Home...

I thought I would show you some more of my Fall decorations around my living room (with a couple of Halloween snuck in). Here is my sofa table. We found this shelf top out in the garage and decided to put it on top of this. I want to paint both of these pieces black eventually.
This grapevine pumpkins was from Robin at The Robin's Nest and is beautiful when lit up. A big pumpkin on my metal painted bucket and a tassel from Susie at Bienvenue. Remember, if you need an adorable tassel for anything visit her here.


This is on top of my old little hutch.
The beads in the apothecary jars are from Pier 1. They are glass beads with acorns and in the other jar are glass beads with pumpkins. Each box was $6.00.
Here is a Halloween pumpkin man that snuck in to meet Mr. Scarecrow.
I LOVE this huge container filled to the brim with pumpkins, gourds and pine cones.....all tied up with a big pretty ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed a look around at my Fall decorations. I will add my Halloween to this next week. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Wonderful decorations. You have done a great job. Such fun to decorate and then show it off to our blogger friends. I have done some too. But I am not finished. But hey, it is still September. I love your blog.

YOU create the bestest posts! My time has been so tight lately---I just miss being able to visit you on a regular basis, but I LOVE it when I get a chance to catch up! Your decorations look fantastic--love the the shelf on the table and all of the decor!!!

I am so glad you and Lexi loved Mamma Mia!!! I bet that little dancin' princess of yours thoroughly enjoyed the music and dance routines! My buddy Bonnie gave me the sound track for my birthday and I just love to put it on when I'm working around the house--if you're in a crummy mood, you snap out of it right away!!!

Have a great week-end. I'm helping my friend (several years my junior!) host her son's Senior Pre-homecoming Dinner tomorrow night! We did that when he was a Freshman, now he requested a repeat for his Sr. year----I hope to take loads of photos for a post (of course!). Those kids are so cute---brings back fun memories for me (my babes are 29 and 32!). L, dana

Wow, you have gone all out! I love your sweet pumpkin man along side your scarecrow man! Oh, and the glass beads in the jars are a wonderful idea! I saw some of those beads at Michaels too, and almost bought them but talked myself out of it! I think I may have to reconsider that after seeing what you did with them! I think the table/shelf will look awesome painted black, too. But it looks nice and fallish now, all decked out! :)

Have yourself a great weekend! :)

Darlene,

All your fall decor looks fabulous! I'm totally in love with Mr. Scarecrow man. He is such a cutie. I'm going to have a post over the weekend of a cute little shop that I went to last week. It's full of Halloween ideas. I'm going to get my Halloween stuff out next week as well. I'm tempted to start now. :-)

Have a great weekend.
