In a Seasonal Frame of Mind

 Hello everyone, and welcome to the blog today. 

I continue to putter around the house, fluffing this and that for this fall season. I do not have any large house projects at this time, but I have a couple of painting projects I am thinking about IF I can ever decide on paint colors. 

I have a few pictures showing some of my small projects.

Laverne...

I was in my local JoAnn fabric store last week and ran across some Halloween specials. 

I found these two cute crows on sale for about six dollars each...into my cart they went. 

I had an idea of attaching them to a wreath...but I have not gotten that far. ha!  I have named them Laverne and Shirley, and adorned them with neck scarves so far. :-) The polka dot mesh ribbon is also from Joann Fabric.

Around the House

I have been having fun doing fall decorating projects around the house. These little projects are adding some fall color to the atmosphere. 

Take a look at a few things I have done around the house. I hope that you see an idea or two that you can use.

The Beauty of Fall's Rustic Elegance

No matter your design style, fall is a time when you can add a bit of rustic in your home. 


I always look forward to foraging for natural elements for my centerpieces. 
But sometimes I use faux. :-)

I happened upon this small metal tiered tray in a local gift shop and decided to give it a pretty makeover with some fall bits and pieces.


I started with some twig pumpkins, acorns, and sprigs of boxwood. Then I added in a couple of silk fall leaves for color. 

This metal tray has a fun finish. 

It makes one think of a galvanized metal but it is not. It has a painted finish with gold/brass highlights. 

There is a brass knob at the top of the post for just a touch of elegance.  


I like the galvanized pieces that are so popular right not...but they are too rustic for my house. But this finish works. 



I began a layering process...in this order. Greenery. 
Pumpkins. 
Leaves. 
Acorns. 
Bird's nest. 




I put two pumpkins on the bottom layer for visual weight, with the third pumpkin on the top layer. 


To me, fall decorating is about texture and color. 



The faux acorns came from Hobby Lobby last year. They most likely have them this year also. 


The twig pumpkins came from my local Hobby Lobby this year.


The boxwood sprigs are also "faux." ha ha. 
They are nice aren't they. 

I purchased a boxwood bush from the same gift shop where I found the tiered tray. Nanwood Market, a gift shop in Columbia, KY. 



And there you have it. :-) Easy peasy! 

I keep all of my fall bits from year to year in a bin in the basement. 

Every year I go basement diving to gather my accessories and come up with new and different arrangements/centerpieces. 

I guess I am recycling! Yay!


Stay tuned for part 2...I already have another arrangement in my head for you. 

I will recycle my tray several times through the holidays to show how you can make one decor purchase but use it several ways. 

Fun. Fun. Fun.  

See you in a few days!
