Bring on Fall

I love fall! I like decorating for Autumn probably more than I enjoy adorning the walls and mantle for Christmas. The weather has started to change slightly with cooler days and dreamy nights. I have not been able to stop myself from becoming excited to pull out all my fall decor...and so I did. Not only did I have fun remembering and forgetting all the fall pieces I have, I got ambitious and decided to craft some new ones.

I got all my supplys ready!

Even the kids helped! The wooden circle only $1.19 at AC Moore!


This awesome wooden letters only cost .50 a piece at AC Moore! Can you guess what the letters spell?


Here is my finished pumpkins garland draped across my fall decorated hoosier.

I free hand painted three of these awesome circles...Havest...Moon...Reflects!


The newly painted circles became part of my garland on the the upper staircase.


I added sephia tone prints cut with pinking shears to remember our summer memories.
Lead me O Lord!
I just love how the circle art turned out!



One of my favorite pictures!



I loved the sephia tone prints so much I added them to the hoosier shelves as well!

The finished hoosier!
