Fall has Fallen........

I've finally gotten my fall decorations out and up!  After experimenting quite a bit, the mantle is finally done to my liking.  I've gone pretty simple, no garland like usual but  sometimes you just need to change things up a bit and pare down!  I was so ready to be looking at something different!
OK, I tried it simpler and after looking at the photos, I am not happy, to plain, needs something else.  I'm going to put my fall garland back up and see how that works, it will definitely add a lot more color!  Will post another picture when I am done and happy with the results!
















I use a window with a dark finish ($5.00) during the winter, the twig wreath is from Target on sale a few years ago, turkey feathers free, courtesy of my daughter's boyfriend, pumpkin sign found at a craft fair, the gathering in Nashville, dog figurene, on sale from the design store, that I worked at a few years ago, candlesticks, yard sale, $3.00 each.

Till next time.......

Loving the fall decor Rebecca. I see a few things I may pick up when I drop by your house to get all of the other things that I have already claimed from your collection, lol.
Alrighty, I saw where you have been under the weather. Do I need to head that way with a shot and some made from scratch chicken noodle soup?? This is no time to be sick! The weather is just gorgeous, and of coarse, won't be too terribly long until another flea market trip. You just let me know, and I will get some chicken boiling.

I've never seen turkey feathers used before for decor! I like them, too!

I hope you have been doing well! That was such a sweet story you shared about your daughter! I bet she was so cute in all of her Barney attire!

You are so good at finding good deals! And putting stuff together!!

As far as the antique shop in Eagleville, if you're talking about the one right next to Joyce's Beauty Shack (just past the only light in town), I've tried to go there 3 different times and it's always closed. :o( But it looks like it would have lots of fun things inside!!

I just love the window look and that wreath compliments it so.
