How Do You Decorate for Fall?

Fall is my favorite season.  It marks the end of summer (thank goodness – too hot) and the start of something new (love the change).  Everything pumpkin makes it way onto store shelves.  Trader Joes Pumpkin Spice Coffee anyone?

This year Raymond and I really wanted to decorate for the fall season.  With me being in a new space, I was excited to have a mantle to decorate.  My old apartment didn’t have a lot of structure.  Thanks to Pinterest for inspiring some of the decor, and thanks to Jessica Barringer and Cheryl Luckett for inspiring me to try new things in the “decor” department. 🙂

And … a lot of this stuff came from Goodwill. 😉

Our mantel:

I won’t give the full breakdown of this project, but let me point out:

  • Goodwill
    • Silver candle holder ($1)
    • White mini urn ($1)

The jack-o-lantern was inspired by this post.  I plan to add moss to the belly of the mouth … whenever I get back over to Michaels. *sigh* 

Pumpkin Pie Plate (Goodwill – $4)
Reminds me of the one Raymond’s Grandmaw used. 🙂

Everything I love about my favorite season (TJ Maxx – $15)

In case you are interested in seeing how I organize within my own home… {I will pick a different project each week} 🙂

Disclaimer: I am moving in a few months (things are minimal around here), and my apartment is super tiny (also reason for minimal). 🙂

JEWELRY

My favorite way to organize jewelry is to display it!

Shadow box w/embroidery tacks
