Fall is in the air (and my house!)

Fall is officially here, and it makes this girl VERY happy!! I love being able to throw on some jeans and sweatshirt and enjoy all the fun outdoor activities. (Pumpkin pickin is my favorite!) Sweet pea is also at the age now where she has become more aware of the outdoors and likes to run around the backyard. I have vowed to be better at getting outside with her now that the weather has cooled off. I see some wagon rides and trips to the zoo in our future!

Not only is it Fall outside, but it has taken residence in my home as well. I think I have finally put out most of what I am going to this year, but it stills needs a tiny bit of tweaking. Since I only work part time, I spend a lot of time at home, and this means I analyze things WAY to much!! I decided to not put out my Halloween decor this year, and stuck with general Fall items. Who knows I may change my mind when the holiday gets closer, but for now I am sticking with what I have.

Thought I would share a few pics of what I have done so far.

Those little pumpkins are from the Dollar Tree. I painted one white and left the other its original color.

LOVE this fun metallic pumpkin I found at Hobby Lobby! You would think I was getting paid by them for as much as I talk about them in my blog :)

Not really sure I am sold on this vignette quite yet. What do you all think?

Had to add a little Fall in the kitchen as well. You can't really see it that well, but I purchased a little pumpkin spice candle at the Dollar store as well, and I burn it almost every night. I just love the way it smells!

Here are a few picture of my outside decor. I got that cute little ladder this summer at a local Peddlers Mall, and I absolutely adore it. It was decorated a little different for the summertime.

Made this wreath with some ribbon and drop cloth material. I had fun making the little rosettes.

This is my grapevine wreath that resides at the front door, and gets a makeover every season/holiday. I have definitely gotten my money's worth out if it!

Love my little scarecrow family. I am going to get a few mums and pumpkins to place around them.
Well that's all for now. Like I said I have a little more tweaking to do, but for the most part I am pretty happy with what I have done.

On a side not, I made my first batch of chicken and dumplings of the season this past Monday, and they were awesome. YUM!!

Happy Fall to everyone!!
