This weekend was so lovely and fall like, and it was finally time to do tier 1 of decorating. I discovered i have 4 Rubbermaid containers of Halloween decorations/clothes which will come out in October, and only 1 container of Fall items. Clearly, i see a need to even things out, don't you? The living room is the only place i can really decorate, besides the dining room table and a not really blog worthy fall runner on the kitchen table, so i give you Living Room, Fall 2010. Extra thrifty style.
Hall table. Halloween books (hmm, not fall...) propping up post-fall clearance scarecrow from Joann's bought last year. That book above Vampire A-Z tells of the real origins of Halloween, with information i used to educate a former coworker when she gave me a pamphlet calling it the "devils holiday". i probably should have kept it, i could have put it out as holiday decor, instead of angrily throwing it in the trash.
Sorry this is so dark, but i don't put the pictures through editing. Believe me, there would never be new posts if i had to spend extra time doing that. These pumpkins are from Lillian Vernon, and they do double duty since there are H'ween images on the other side. I'm always thinkin' (taps head).
I'm quite proud that all that glassware, including candlesticks, were thrift store purchases from this year. For a girl who loves Fall, i told you i was lacking!
Oh my goodness, i looooove this set of table covers (modeled by my ottomans). S bought them for me on vacation last year and they were really expensive, but they are the perfect addition. I must have had nothing before!
Thank you for joining me on my Fall decor tour of the living room. What has been your best Fall find, the one that really "makes it"?
