It's Fall Y'all!

I have always loved fall and definitely get fall fever this time of year. I love the crisp air, the mums, the pumpkins, the scarecrows and I could go on and on.  I tend to sometimes go over board with my fall decorating. I must say the Dollar Tree has really been a great place to buy fall decorations this year. I got some really great Halloween decorations there too. Anyway enough about my love for Dollar Tree. I wanted to share some of my fall fever with all of you. Go ahead and make yourself comfortable and be prepared to go into picture overload. :)


Let's begin this fall tour with my mantle.  Remember those candlesticks and picture frame that I posted about yesterday?  The frame turned in a chalkboard and the candlesticks got a fresh coat of spray paint. 




The pedestal, candle and glass votive all came from Dollar Tree! I wrapped the twine around the bottom to  give it some fall texture.



I drew and painted the L on the funkin (you read that right funkin not pumpkin).  A funkin is a fake pumpkin that you can carve.  I bought three of them last January at Jo-Ann fabrics. They were $1.00 a piece, the retail tag said $19.99.


I also love mason jars!  These are the easiest thing to decorate with and can be bought almost anywhere. I put some acorns and a votive in mine. 


Wrapped some twine around these mason jars along with adding the acorns and candles.



I stuffed some orange lights into these old, aqua color mason jars (sorry I should have hid that extra cord hanging out).  I think  that this is a 50 count strand of orange mini-lights.  I just love how the color pops in these jars. The white pumpkin also came from the Dollar Tree. 



I bought these little pumpkins at Dollar Tree, too.  The pumpkins were attached to some plastic greenery. I pulled them off of the greenery and added them to this tray.  Does the tray look familiar? Yep, it was a goodwill find from this past weekend.



Just a few more pictures left! This is the centerpiece for my dining room table.  I put the one pumpkin on an iron trivet that I bought from Goodwill.

  
I just love this little squirrel!  I got him at a garage sale this summer. I just had to have him when I saw him!


Last, but not least here is a picture of my front porch. It is a work in progress! We just got the new door and sidelight installed this summer. We want to build a small porch eventually, but until then this is what I have to work with. 


The little pepsi crate wagon was also a product of garage sales this summer. I just love how the mums look sitting in it.



Well, I hope I didn't bore you too much with all of my fall fever pictures, thanks for stopping by!
