Halloween Mesh Wreath

 I love this wreath I found yesterday at Ben Franklin! Lime green Geo Mesh with purple sparkly spiders, black scrolls and ribbon. Oh-and mini purple LED lights! The perfect beginning to Halloween/Fall decorating! (and of course I used a 40% off coupon) This weekend I'm going to start decorating for Fall-there's a cold front coming through our area and it should be the perfect weather!

Have a great night... Shannon

Hand hewn dough bowls and an auction...

I got so lucky at the auction a few weeks ago. They had 6 of these hand hewn dough bowls up for sale! I have always wanted a large one. Let's just say that  I got one heck of a deal. Matt stained all of them for me. And of course then it was time to fill it with pumpkins and gourds, candles and foliage. I love the finished product! The other bowls are at our booth in Jeffersonville for $19.99 a piece!  I wonder what I'll  find at the auction tonight...

Have a great Friday!

Porch decorating for the fall...

I placed a repurposed  dresser on our side porch and used these beautiful glass knobs in green. The yard sale mirror reflects light and gives the space a feeling of inside.

 Tiny pumpkins set inside china plates bring in that beautiful orange fall color. And a wagon full of pumpkins in a yard sale find wagon wait by the door to greet guests.
 A half table mounted to the side porch wall and a screen door propped on top (both side of the road finds) are a perfect spot to display a metal toolbox filled with fall foliage. A mason jar full of fall colors on a pewter cake stand surrounded by gourds rounds out the display.The side porch is the first place that our guests see and I love to dress it up for each season!

Pumpkins and gourds and vintage~Oh MY!

I have loved decorating the house for Fall this past week. I thought that I'd start with showing you part of the family room. It's so easy to enhance pieces that you already have for fall. Tiny pumpkins and gourds are 25 cents at my local farmer's market and bigger pumpkins range from $1.50-$6.00

I also save my bittersweet each year that my father-in-law picks for me. It adds such beautiful color to any arrangement. I also love the inexpensive fabric type leaves that you can get at the dollar store. I put them everywhere! I use wreaths to hold large candle holders. It gives them more substance then on there own. I use candles in oranges and browns, Scents like warm cinnamon pumpkin and spiced nut bread fill the air of my home and I love it!! Filling your home with wonderful scents is so important. Treat yourself to a wonderful candle today. 2 of my favorite kinds are Celebrating Home and Candleberry! If you love to decorate as much as I do please let me know! I'd love to see pictures and trade ideas!!
Happy Monday
