Good Evening Bloggers! This is a day of remembrance for all those that lost their life in the 911 tragedy. I am sorry I did not have an appropriate picture to post.
I was at work when this tragedy happen. Along with the others I was crying as I watched the planes go into the World Trade Center. I keep all of the families in my prayers.
I wanted to share the tweaking I did this weekend to some areas in our home. I added more fall decorations!
I love to decorate, even though I am not the best at doing it. But it sure is fun for me to try! Hope you enjoy and leave me feedback on any changes you would make.
Dining Room Table
I changed the runner on the dining room table to a fall runner. It has pumpkin like things around the edges. The center piece is an old bucket I had on hand. I painted it using Folk Art Acrylic Paint in the Linen color. I tied raffia around the top and added the fall silverware pouch I found at Kirklands some time ago. I added the hydrangeas and the other huge flowers.
The creamy pumpkins were part of last years collection. I found the rooster votive holder at the Largest Yard sale for a dollar! I added the little sage green votive
I used Celestina's hand painted pumpkin as the center focal point. I placed it on a black candle stand to give it some height!
I added a squash and a pumpkin and two tiny birds on the right side. I found the two little birds at the largest yard sale. They were a quarter for birth birds. The squash and the pumpkin I had from last years decorations.
On the left side,I added a large leaf plate I found at a yard sale. You will recognize the other two leaf plates at Family Dollar finds!
The two large candlesticks in the back I already had on there. The candles I bought at Target.
With The Candles Light
I tweaked the kitchen table to have it decorated for fall! The pumpkin salt and pepper shakers, I found at the Dollar Store last year. The table runner I made, it has chickens embroidered with the fall colors! The place mats I shared before,were found at a yard sale.
I changed the fireplace mantle out to add fall decorations. The leaf plate is a Home Goods find. The apple plate I found this week end at the Largest Yardsale. You recognize the little votive vases and the pumpkins from Family Dollar!
You will notice in the bottom photo in the corner a mess in the sun room. That is the rest of my yard sale finds from this weekend.

Master BEDROOM DRESSER
I did a redo on our master bedroom dresser! The bottles sitting on the silver like tray I found this week at the Largest Yardsale! When I saw them I had to have them because they match the colors in our bedroom perfect!
