I don't buy all new decorations every year. Some do and that is fine but I tend to grow an attachment to my stuffs. I remember when I bought something, who I was with, where we were.... Looking at my treasures reminds me of those people, times, places, ect. Sad? Probably, but that's me. So, come on in and grab a cup of tea, coffee or cocoa and visit for a while.
I made the paper and burlap banner last year. I picked up the burlap banner for $3, I think, from Target. I used an old book to cut out triangles and a Sharpie to draw on my letters.
I love these cement acorns. I have only two but I make sure they always find a place where I can easily see them.
I recently saw a variation of the glass cloche decor over at Hunt and Host. I liked her leaf in the mix so I grabbed one that I had made and put it inside.
My relatively "new" gallery wall got a bit of a fall update with paper leaf and burlap garland. I used Country Design Style's printable leaves and cut them out of an old book and burlap scrap book paper.
Yes, you've seen them here before. I used them to make the garland in the dining room. And, yes, I still have to have some summer in there somewhere!
The funky wheat-y looking thing is from one of the ornamental grasses in my yard that has gone by.
About six years ago, Mister and some men from church replaced our front porch. In the process we found these beautiful corbels that had been covered over. I had to save what I could. I cleaned them up then sealed them in about 10 coats of a clear, matte finish. I couldn't save all 4 pair but this one I managed to squirrel away while Mister wasn't looking. I like to think he is secretly glad that I did...
On the lantern I used one of the hydrangea picks I put together when I made the wreath for the front door. I used them in the dining room, too.
The leaf print was found at A Night Owl. It is free to download. I just clipped it to a cheap board I picked up at Walmart for less than a dollar. I use them for all kinds of things from school to decor.
In the middle of trying to shoot pictures the sky turned dark and it started to rain; not good for a room that has no overhead lighting, just lamps.
