Happy Fall, Ya'll

I am so excited that it's Fall! I am ready to enjoy crisper weather (not cold, but just right for jeans!) and Halloween and Thanksgiving and the leaves and ... the list could go on and on!

I have also enjoyed decorating the house a little for Fall. Here are a few things that we've done to help us enjoy the season even more! Pumpkins, pumpkins EVERYWHERE!!

Little faux (sounds classier than fake, don't you think?) pumpkins on some pillar candlesticks.

More pumpkins on candlesticks! The larger pumpkin was from the dollar section at
Target - I added the green ribbon.

Bowl of gourds and mini pumpkins - this time all real! Sam's Club
has bags of gourds for under $5.

Candy Corn!

And a little before and after for you...

Before - I bought a cute pumpkin to hang on our front door, but when I got it home, the brown color of the pumpkin did not work with my burgundy front door. The pumpkin kind of got lost.

And after - I painted it a creamy white and added another green ribbon and it shows up much better now!

Have a great day! And Happy Fall, Ya'll!

Your are becoming quite the inspiration to me and a few of my friends who have also started to read your very crafty blog!! My best friend made the ribbon wreath. She used a square wreath..too cute!
Thanks for the great ideas!
