My Fall Decorating

Hello Everyone! It’s been over a week since my last post and I know I missed some parties that went on but I’ve been trying to get some painting done and also decorate for fall. I’m using fall things from last year and I did buy some things from only at the Dollar Store to keep the cost down from switching from one style to another:) So here is my mantel, not the best picture but I think you get the picture, it’s a 7 ft mantel and very hard (for me anyway) to decorate but I think this turned out pretty good. Thanks to all of you who have inspired me♥
This post is picture heavy so I thought I’d warn you ahead of time…this is the middle of my decorated mantel, everything but the white pumpkin is from GW!
To the left on the mantel.
To the right, the clock is from Target which I broke while taking it out of the package.
Now if I turn two things around I’m ready for Halloween, the white pumpkin I bought at Hallmark a couple years ago and the gourd, with the spooky face I found at GW for .79.
The shelf above the sofa!
My coffee table!
A better view! The mercury votive holder from Target (love that store) candle, Pottery Barn, ceramic planter which spells popcorn, GW and so is the tray from GW!
This is on the lower shelf and I added a few sprigs of berries!
On my hutch!
Now this is my entry way looking from the livingroom!
A friend bought me this lighted berry garland, I guess I could clip the stars off. LOL
I have two mirrors that I painted white and I’m pretty sure I’m going to hang one here and keep the mirror that is hanging there also, sort of a wall of mirrors?
A corner of the entryway.
My sewing machine cabinet which is in the keepingroom, which is a room right off the kitchen!
I really like how this picture turned out and love the crocheted runner I found at an estate sale this summer!
Have a wonderful Sunday and thank you to my newest followers I so appreciate all of you!

It looks nice, Rondell! I did the same with bringing up old stuff and adding just a few new things. I figure if we do that every year, we will eventually have amassed a lot of home decor to work with in a few years!!!

I love that black and white photo on the left of your mantle, with the trees and the cross. Gorgeous.

Hi Rondell,
Everything is looking great! I'm having the same problems with my Fall decor...most of it is too primitive for my decor now. So, I've pulled some of the handmade items to take to my upcoming show since I sell all styles in my booth. The rest will most likely go to the GW.

Hi Rondell,

Take care and have a wonderful day,

Oh, your home is Beautiful! And, your finds are so much fun.

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog conserning my Mom's passing. Moms are so special and such an important part of daily life. Everyday I keep thinking of things that I need to ask her, and then I remember that I can't...She is so missed, but she is also not suffering and she is in Paradise!!! How can I be too sad about that? I am sorry about your Mom, Dad and Brother! My goodness.
Love, Joyce
