Yard Sale Finds

My community had a yard sale today and although I didn't find a ton of fun things, I found one thing I was looking for, a pencil tree,  YIPPIEEE.  I also found a flower arrangement, which wasn't in the best of shape but looked like it may have potential (my friend thought I was out of my mind for buying it).    After the yard sale we headed out to Hobby Lobby.  I am having a ton of fun at that store and have been there four times since it opened a couple weeks ago.  I bought a few things for the tree and with a pot I already had and some new flowers I redid the flower arrangement.    I still have to add some moss to the pot the tree is sitting in.  I'll finish that up tomorrow (after another round of the neighborhood to check out the yard sales that weren't able to set up today).  

My yard sale finds.  Not bad for about ten bucks.

Can you really have too many roosters?

The other day I had several teenage boys in my house and one very observant one let me know that I had TWENTY FIVE roosters in my kitchen.  That's right 25!!  I had no idea.  I do love my roosters but all of a sudden I felt like I had too many of them.  So I took down three rooster plates I had hanging over my desk area and hung a new picture I got yesterday from Kirklands.  I liked it but all of a sudden my very large roo didn't match so I took him outside and with a can of spray paint transformed him and I now have a love of him all over again.  I am very happy with the change. 



So what do you think?

Have a super day,

I love fall!!

I absolutely love fall.  Except for my allergies, fall is my favorite season.  I love the colors of fall and the warm temperatures too.  The last few days have been really warm here but I've still been in the mood for fall decorating.  I am hoping to get a little more done by the end of this week, after a trip, of course, to the newly opened Hobby Lobby (my most favorite decorating/craft store!!)  Hope to see you back here in a few days to check out more of my fall decor. 

This is a picture of my fireplace.  I just love the stone, but I'm considering adding some trim to the top.  I haven't decided yet.  What do you think?  The curtains on either side will soon be replaced .

 Don't you just love candy corn?

I love fall flowers.  I am tempted to keep this arrangement in here all year long.  The colors are much more vibrant in person.

This is my new pumpkin I picked up the other day at Hobby Lobby.

Well, that is the start of my fall decor.  I'll post some more pictures soon.

Have a wonderful day,
