It Doesn't Look Like Crapola To Me

Tomorrow we have been promised that a cold front is coming in. It's going to get down to a chilly 88 degrees. So I think it's safe to show you some fall decorations


This is the buffet in my kitchen. I got the cute autumn sign from Cherry Hill Cottage a couple of years ago.


Here's a close up of my cute Pilgrims and Indians. (or native Americans, for you politically correct folks) Sometimes I mix them up and make them interracial couples just for fun.



And this is my dining room table. That big pumpkin will go outside eventually. In a few weeks, I'll get some mums and real pumpkins and decorate my yard.








I got some branches from one of our trees to decorate the mantle.




These chubby polka dot pumpkins are made by Sharon from Glazed From the Heart. I think they are my favorite fall item. Well, them and candy corn.



And I just tied some burlap around a mason jar and stuck a tea light in it.

And voila...






I got these pumpkins at Hobby Lobby. They were originally floral picks and I pulled the stem off. I thought I was being frugal, because they were half off and I got them for $2 each. But then I went to Walmart and saw some cute pumpkins for $1 each. I'll probably need to get some of those too!






Only 77 more days until it's time to decorate for Christmas!

Your blog is my very favorite!!! I LOVE your decorating ideas and syle! I am also a big fan of ME stuff which I see through out your home. I just love the colander light that your husband made for you in your kitchen. Can you email me on how he did this? Thanks for sharing your home with us each day.

I love the polka dog pumpkins, so cute! It's hard for me to pull out my fall stuff yet since it's still HOT here, but once hubs gets back from France, I'm going to have him drag that stuff down from the attic. It is mid September after all. I gotta get started.

I was wondering also where you got your Happy Everything plate? Love it and all of your fall decor. I've been wondering if it's too soon to get out my fall stuff and now I'm just gonna go for it. Thanks for the inspiration!!
