Decorating for Fall...

A few weeks ago I picked up these guys. The green gourds are from the Dollar Store and I found the box of pumpkins at Goodwill for $0.99.... with all the cute fall projects around blogland I just couldn't pass them up!

This is a terrible picture (from my phone and at night) but this little fall arrangment was also at Goodwill for $1. He was a little too cheesy for me, but nothing a little spray paint couldn't fix!

I took out the pumpkin and a few of the other picks and gave them a coat of bronze spray paint. 

Once it was reassembled, it looked much better! I've lagged on getting our fall decorations out of the attic this year. It's been hard to think of it as Fall since it's still in the 90's here in California, but with Halloween quickly approaching I decided it was time!

I decorated our china cabinet with the new fall arrangement, a few ceramic leaves I picked up from an estate sale, and the "Fall" pumpkins I got on sale at Target a few years ago.

The box of orange pumpkins also got sprayed with various metallic paints and now sit on our dining table. The long white tray stays out year round and gets repurposed for the different holidays, it was also a Goodwill find and I think I paid $3.

The clock dome I posted about here also got updated with fall decor.

It's on our living room console table with a couple of placemats and wire acorns I picked up from Michael's after season sale a few years ago.

I put another acorn (from Target) and ceramic leaf (found at a thrift store) on the nesting tables in our entry.

Glass pumpkins on the end table. The largest one came from Target, but I found the other two earlier this year at thrift stores for $1 or $2. I'm thinking about using the new antique glass paint and updating these guys a little bit...

This is our coffee table. I believe the leaf bowl, candle holder, and pumpkin came from Michael's as well. I recently found the acorn dish at the SPCA Thrift Store for $1.49

And of course the acorns I painted and posted about here.

As you can probably tell, I just love decorating for the holidays/seasons. Just wait until you see all the Halloween decorations we have! It's almost as bad as Christmas around here.....
