Whisper Wood Cottage Talent Scouting Party ~Autumn Decor


Hi all, hope your weekend was a great one! I just got on here to blog hop when I came across Whisper Wood Cottage, they are having another talent scouting party and if you win you could be featured in Cottage& Bungalow’s magazine, the theme is Autumn Decor, neat huh? So I thought I’d dig up some fall pictures I have and join in on all the fun! The party starts today, July 16th, so here’s a few picks of my fall d├ęcor! First is the diningroom:
I love my black pumpkin that started out as an orange styrofoam but then I painted it black and tied a white bow on it!

Full view of the room…these pumpkins were the same only I painted them white and used black ribbon on them!
P9281505
Just used some raffia (bought in a package at a yardsale) to set them in!
P9281506
Livingroom: I used candle holders from the Dollar Tree, painted them white and sat some white painted pumpkins on them, the crows are also from DT! It’s hard to see but in the lines of the pumpkin I used a silver glitter, glue pen to define them a little.

The coffee table got dressed too, I used two, glass pieces from DT and glued them together to put some tiny, little gourds in them, co cute!
P9171442
Kitchen: The top of the frig with faux fall stems collected from the DT too.
P9171450
We have a community yardsale every August and another lady sold next to me she wanted something of mine so we traded, I don’t know what these are but I know I like the color of them so much!
P9211469
On the kitchen counter, I used flowers and leaves and other things taken from arrangements sold at yardsales for $1.00 or $2.00 that I didn’t care for but knew I could use the stems and berries for my own arrangements!
P9221480
Entryway: The wreath is a yardsale find and just filled in the empty spaces with fall picks from DT and JoAnn’s!
P9221488
P9281504
Last, my front porch:
P9131404
Love my black door! The wreath is another yardsale find and just filled it in with some fall picks and a bow that I made!
P9131405
Although a lot of things have changed in my home when these pictures were taken last year, I’ll still use them this year again, everything I used was inexpensively done and that’s what makes it so much fun!
                                                                      
Have a wonderful day!

Funny you should post this, I was thinking about Fall this morning. (It must be the excessively hot Summer that's making me think about Fall!)

Your decor is always so pretty, Rondell. I love how you decorated your mantel.

I love your fall decor, Rondell! So cozy and pretty! I probably shouldn't say this too loud...but fall has been on my mind lately! It's my favorite time of year! Thanks for your nice comments on my fun finds post!

You have some great fall displays! I really like the wreath in your entryway.

Isn't this the coolest party and perfect timing. I was already starting to get the itch to decorate (maybe because I want to heat to go away & because my favorite stores are already displaying Fall), but I make myself hold off until at least mid-August....I know, that's kind of early....lol! So I think this party was just what the Dr. ordered to appease my Fall appetite just a bit longer. All of your arrangements look so lovely. I really like the painted pumpkins. I'm definitely trying that this year.
