It is starting to feel like the transition of Fall in the South has begun. I have been really inspired by so many incredible and beautifully decorated posts over at Rhoda’s fall party. You must go and see the Fall goodness!!
Rhoda's Fall Party
Well, here is the feeble attempt I have made at my Fall decorating. After seeing all of the wonderful pictures though, I will certainly be adding to my decor!!
This is sitting on top of my entertainment center. I got the pumpkin at $ Tree, candle stand at Habitat store (painted of course), and cheese dish/cloche at Salvation Army $2.
This is another $1 pumpkin that I put into my little “bird bath” surrounded by black beans. The chalkboard beside it (homemade) has one of my favorite Bible verses on it.
“For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
This is a terrible pic but there is a dark green gourd in the back with the striped gourd. The big pumpkin is a twig pumpkin I got at the Habitat store for .50. It had some tacky stuff glued all over it that I peeled off. The white/orange striped gourd in the Southern Living container is resting on a soft bed of white and black beans.
A couple of $1 store crows nestled in with a couple of $1 painted gourds on the mantle.
This is the other end of the mantle.
I don’t know what is wrong with my picture taking ability. I guess I really shouldn’t do this when I’m in a hurry.
I found these adorable ceramic pumpkins at Fred’s for $1.99 each. I just love how they look in the Southern Living candle hurricanes.

What would Oct. be without a cute little (.10) apothecary jar full of skulls?
The pumpkin on the chair is a fake that I got at Habitat for $1. The white one is real and I just painted a G on it and popped it on an urn. That is a pansy in the green pot and a cabbage in the terra cotta on a candle stick. I never used my ice bucket/stand so I decided to plant my little fall garden in there. This is on my front porch and I love the way it turned out!
This is on the other side of my porch. Wow-I need to clean the slate don’t I? Let’s just pretend shall we? I painted the urn with Krylon Georgia Clay. I thought it looked very “fall”.
I had a fall wreath that was small so I cut all of the leaves off and put them on this grapevine wreath. Then I added the G and used the ribbon to hand “a la Nester”. I love the way it looks from the road and I have gotten lots of compliments on it.
I so do not love the double doors on the front of the house. I decided to put the house number on one and then decorate the other. Maybe one day I can change the doors out.
Here is the whole front porch look. I so would love a big front porch and a beautiful screened in porch on the back to decorate. Maybe one day….
I think my first attempt at Fall decorating turned out well. I have so many more things I would like to do though after being inspired by the many beautiful blogs out there!!
