Show Us Your Life - Fall Decorations!


Every Friday one of the blogs I read has a "Show Us Your Life" series.  I'm like Oprah and I just think it's so much fun to see how other people live (which is pretty much how I got into this whole blog thing to begin with).  Usually I'm just a lurker but this Friday I'm going to participate because I love the topic.  It's Fall Decorations!  I LOVE the fall, it's my favorite season (I originally wanted to get married in the fall but was informed by Austin that we would be breaking the "rules" he and his college buddies agreed to about not getting married during football/hunting season.  Seriously....). 


Some of you are going to think this is lame, so don't make fun of me. ;)  To the rest of you, welcome to Kelly's Fall Decorations!


Living Room:  Here is the Southern Living vase that I got when I hosted a show at my house right after we moved in.  I love it and I change out the flowers with the seasons.  Obviously they are not fresh flowers....  The little pumpkins are from Hobby Lobby (on sale, just like EVERY SINGLE other fall decoration I own!  I never buy seasonal decorations full price, they are ALWAYS on sale!)  The candle is a Yankee Candle Farmer's Market and it smells goooood.  The candles are one of my favorite parts about fall. 


Here is our fireplace (obviously)


Kind of hard to see but this is some kind of swirly fall looking stuff and it's pretty on the mantle.  Nice description, I know. 


These are the pumpkins I got recently at Target.  I just liked them.  :)


Just a creative way to display another candle.


I just liked the things up on the top shelf (another Hobby Lobby buy) and the ghosts are pretty much the only "country" looking things in my house but I thought they were cute.  Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil.  I bought them at a craft fair at work a few years ago for $8.  Can you tell I keep putting things in 3s?  My Godfather Vernon once said you're supposed to do that so I just do. 


Moving onto the kitchen!  Here's just another pumpkin and candle.  This candle is some random brand and it smells AWESOME!!  I wish I knew where I got it because I'd probably stock up.  ;)


The are some dish towels I got from Crate & Barrel last year when they were on sale BIG TIME!  Apparently I need to iron them....  not going to happen. 


Another set of decorations in 3s.


Dining Room:  I can't wait for the day when I can get new dining room furniture but when we moved in my friend's parents were nice enough to give us this set!  It does the job of holding our plates about 5 times a year so it still needs a little fall decor. ;)  I got the runner on sale at C&B and just decorated the candle thing with fall leaves. 



Entry way: I just liked this pumpkin, I thought it was different. 


Fall wreath.  I change the wreath out with the seasons too.


Here is my 1st attempt at some outdoor decor.  I looked EVERYWHERE for a hay bale and couldn't find one for some reason.  So I settled for these little ones and I'm not too pleased with it but whatever, I'm not changing it now.  About 10 minutes after I finished this "porch scape" Austin called and said he found a hay bale.  Oh well, there's always next year.  I think it's still cute, if you don't like it, don't tell me because then my feelings will be hurt.  ;)  I'm just wondering what I'm supposed to do with all these pumpkins after Fall because I can promise you that Austin will NOT be carving them for Halloween! 


Here's a picture of my favorite little pumpkin!  Little Leah all dressed up in her Halloween costume.  I think I have one cute niece, don't you?!  :)


There you have it.  Some of my fall decorations (believe it or not, it's not all of them)! 
Happy Friday everyone!

It looks awesome! I heard something similar to the groups of three - someone told me it had to be an odd number of things. All of my fall decorations fit in one small box so I think you're killing it!
