A Touch of Fall....

On Friday, I had a few free hours, so I decided it was as good of a time as any to get a little fall decorating done.  Here's a snippet of how fall entered our home....

All new goodies on my dinner table (perhaps not completely done)... the wagon was a Michael's find... it was the perfect shade of soft orange, the gourds and cattails were all Dollar Tree finds, and the raven was from Michael's.  I splurged on this guy... $4.99... only to find more later at Dollar Tree for a BUCK each.

My Fall Banner.  This was one of my first attempts at making something I found on a blog.  Don't ask me which one.  I'll never remember.  I bought felt (for the back of the triangles) and used clearanced kitchen towels to get the patterns for the inner triangles.  They are tied together using strips of kitchen towels.

My hearth... do you see the second raven hanging out in the middle of the fall flowers?

I love this guy!  I found him at Home Goods and really splurged on him ($12.99), but I loved the fact that he was all sparkly and a great size.  

Raven #3... this little setting is in my living room on the media cabinet... much too high for the stinker puppy to grab and chew.  Gotta watch her... she's already eaten a few of my decorations...

Just some more fall touches.  I made this arrangement pumpkin a few years ago.  I covered a faux pumpkin with sprinkles and then cut a hole big enough to shove a bunch of fall faux foliage.

My feather wreath!  I've been wanting to get one, but wasn't sure the feathers wouldn't be a bit too much.  Fortunately getting this "bronze" colored one, it has just a touch of creepy to it.  Great for Halloween... though I'm hoping it can remain till at least Thanksgiving.  On sale at Joann's this weekend.

A little update to my books/pear... gourds!

Scarecrow... who can't adore a little scarecrow.  :)

When you pay just $1 for a few pretty fall-colored flowers, you make it work.  Here, I put them inside the faux grass.
