Howdy Ya'll! I've been in the mood for all things AUTUMN this week. Browsing through your creative photos on Pinterest, facebook and blogland has really inspired me. I wanted to do some sort of festive fall "welcome" display in the entry of my house. I had the opportunity to go shopping this week all by myself (no kiddos). I went just about everywhere! I visited Hobby Lobby, Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Walmart, Target, Dollar Stores, Home Goods even the thrift shops. But, just like when you want something to eat and nothing sounds good, nothing called my name to be bought. After all that wasted gas. :?
I kept returning to the thought that I owned everything I needed to make a great display. And what I didn't have, mother nature could provide. So I shopped my house! We've all done it right? You root around in the closets, garage and attic to rediscover your castaway items. They suddenly become treasures again!
So every single thing you see here came from the "Farmhouse Porch Market" and yard.
I think I may be getting better at this "arrangement" business. Here's what I did last year FARMHOUSE FALL TABLESCAPE. Looking back at old projects is like looking at a dated hairstyle. I always pick it to pieces...do you ever feel that way too?
You yankees send me some of that crisp, cool air down here in Texas okay?
