I have been itching to decorate for fall lately, and now that it’s finally September, I just might. Have you all been to Dollar General recently? They have so many beautiful fall things and for such awesome prices! There were many things I wanted to buy and I still may go back and buy them later.
This comfy fall throw is soft and I love the colors. This muted gray would be beautiful thrown over my couch.
This pretty tea towel would look great in a kitchen or a bathroom.
These cute little fall bowls are reminiscent of Rae Dunn and I am seriously considering going back and buying about six of them.
I want this cute little sign so bad. My aunt was with me at the DG and she talked about buying this and putting it in the center of a deco mesh wreath, which would be really pretty.
These pretty little metal baskets would be great in a fall vignette.
These small canvas fall signs are available in several different designs and are another thing I’m debating on going back to buy.
I’ve earmarked this cute little clock for a project I’m about to do. Isn’t it cute?
These cute little galvanized pails could be used for so many things.
I want some of these little candle lanterns.
This photo frame is so pretty. I’ve almost bought it many a time.
There were also some really cute candle holders and some fall vase fillers that I liked and didn’t get pictures of.
This year, I opted to do a shortened and simplified fall home tour. We’ve had so many things to do lately, that I haven’t been able to give the blog its needed attention. This year, we opted to do a more simple fall decorating scheme, and I’m happy with how it turned out. We went with lots of candles and simple, natural decor.
Our fake mantel has a red berry wreath, a white pumpkin, bittersweet and plenty of candlelight. Simple, yet pretty.
Our dining room hutch also got a little fall as well. Notice the typo art and the antique scale from my grandmother.
And also the vintage milk glass and burlap sunflowers.
Our dining room table features a burlap runner (to match the sunflowers) and a wooden box with candles and pumpkins.
I’m planning to add some grapevine balls and greenery to this later on.
We also included a little fall display in our front entry.
Fall pillows on the couch and a tray full of fall goodness on the coffee table in the living room.
And finally, in our office, yet another tray, this one with sunflowers and a field guide that once belonged to my dad.
Our seasonal tour this fall included lots of natural elements and lots of simple goodness. I also incorporated things that belonged to our family members, such as the field guide, antique scale, and milk glass. And lastly, I included a little typo art as well.
I am excited to announce that my favorite season has officially arrived….well, at least it has on the calendar. It still feels like summer here in the Tarheel State, the leaves aren’t changing yet, and I haven’t quite broken out my scarves and sweaters yet. But I am decorating for fall and I can’t wait to show you my fall decor this week!
In the meantime, I want to share some of these cute fall pillows I found while browsing Pinterest one recent night when I couldn’t sleep. Side note: has anyone else been having a fit with their insomnia lately? I can’t be the only one.
My insomnia has been doing wonders for my Pinterest boards, my home design, and my organization skills, but not much for my checking account. I keep finding things I want, and these cute fall pillows are certainly no exception.
Take a look at the cuteness I uncovered during my most recent late night:
I found these really cute pumpkins at Walmart this week. They’ve got a neat shape to them, but they don’t really look real. In fact, they don’t look real at all. They’ve got this weird pale yellow color that just looks….strange.
So, I picked up two of them. They are available in many sizes, but I chose two medium sized ones. I had a neat idea in mind for them and as cheap as they are, I really couldn’t pass them up.
I dragged out my chalk paint stash and immediately slathered a coat of white chalk paint on them.
If you’re new to chalk paint, you’ll need to know that everything you paint has an ugly stage. And that ugly stage is usually solved by adding a second coat. I was pretty pleased with the pumpkin after the second coat.
I think adding the white paint to the pumpkin makes it much more real-looking, don’t you?
I cannot wait to show you all what I decided to do with them… in fact, if you visit the blog on Wednesday, I’ll show you.
