A Fall Lantern


Today I am off so I have the time to pull out a few things.  The first area to get "Fallified" is my lantern.  This was quite fun.  I am so glad I bought this thing because now I feel like I now have a dedicated seasonal decor area.

Here it is all completed!

So what do you think?  I used everything I already owned in this vignette except for the ribbon.

I bought this plate last year from Marshalls.

This year my little urn to the left got a boost of  height by adding the darker grass that I used in another arrangement last year.

The willow pumpkin was my mothers that she didn't want and last year I added the orange lights.  I had it on the front porch last year but never really turned it on.  This year it's inside where I can enjoy it.  Fun!


Yep, uh huh, here's the same picture at a few more angles.  LOL!

I got this ribbon from Joanne Fabrics just the other day on my day off when I went to the new Home Goods across town.  Let me just say that was some experience.  The crowds were crazy!  You would have thought it was black Friday.  Gee! 

Here's just one thing I came home with from our new Home Goods store.  I just couldn't resist this fella, could you?  Can't wait to move him outside.  I made a few more stops that afternoon at a few more of my favorite shops on that side of town and boy did I rack up.

I'll be back to share those finds and more fall decorating with you another day.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a wonderful afternoon!

  12. It's so pretty. I'm not ready to let go of summer completely; but you make me nostalgic for Autumn and it's warm colors and crisp apples.
