A Litttle Fall

I'm so far behind on everything, but I still wanted to add a little fall  decor to my home. I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I looked at my hoard... er um supplies and found some things I thought I could use. This is what I ended up with.




I started with this mirror with attached planter that I found when I was shopping my shed.


I have tons of faux flowers and grasses  so I picked out a few and created an asymmetrical arrangement in the planter portion of the mirror. Here is a close up of the arrangement.




I used faux hydrangeas that I bought last year on clearance, grasses faux twigs and white feathers that I had on hand. My large white pumpkin was bought recently at Walmart for  five dollars. It started out  orange but I wanted a white pumpkin  so I painted it using antique white craft paint,  the next size pumpkin was bought last year at Tuesday Morning  on clearance for 1.00 and the tiny pumpkin came from The Dollar Tree, I painted that white as well. I added my favorite white Rooster from my collection and ended up with a simple fall vignette that cost me about 7.00 dollars total. I'm going to make a couple more pieces I'll share them later. I just wanted to share what I have so far since its been quite a while since I've posted or visited. I'll close with a few more shots of my vignette.



Well ladies its so good to be back! I'll be visiting everyone later but right now I have dog grooming duties. My poor little fur babies have been so neglected these past few weeks as has most everything else. I'll be joining these ladies this week.

  2. I love 'home' shopping! You really created a gorgeous vignette... loving the soft creams and whites vs. the bright oranges this fall.
    That's a very interesting table top too.
