Oct. 1st is freaking change your decor to Fall day!

I'm making today a holiday! Put away the summer crap and bust out with some Fall stuff! The weather is a cool 83 degrees here in Dallas, almost sweater weather for us :)

A trip to HomeGoods and Hobby Lobby {oh and a side trip to my Mom's craft room} and I have a nice fall\Halloweenish mantle!


I wanted to do more than orange and green, so I added yellow and turquoise {because what season doesn't go with turquoise!}.  The wreathes I made from an idea I saw on Pinterest  {click here to see it}



I wish I could say I made the adorable topiary, but alas it was my Mom and she refused to make me one because it was a pain.  So I just went and stole it while she was off shopping in Round Top Antique Market this weekend :)



The sign is legit mine :)


Hope you guys enjoyed my new decor! My back has been killing me, I've been training the kid.....


Happy Weekend, hope you guys are having some fabulous weather too!

  1. Looks great! I used a lot of color in my Halloween vignette this year too. Cheery, yet eerie.

  2. Holy crap!! That is an awesome fall mantle. I love that you threw in the turquoise. It looks amazing! Can you send miss M this way when she's finished with your back rub?? Maybe she can train Ethan!

  3. Where do you get your energy? I can't do anything until this house sells. Maybe I will decorate the yard. Keep up the good work

  4. HAHAHAHA! I'm dying laughing at number one: COOL 83...You are SUCH a Texan to think that's cool. I remember when I thought that was cool, too, until I moved to Jersey! It's 52 degrees here today...=*( Oh and the second thing: HILARIOUSLY AWESOME LAST PICTURE! Your daughter looks so pissed to be doing that...hahahaha the look! omg so adorable!

  5. Ohh... I need to train mine! Training the hubs didn't work out so maybe my 2 year old will work.... Cute decor! I haven't done anything yet and honestly am not sure if I will, even though I love Halloween and have some cute stuff! Hmmm...

  13. Ah yes, finally getting over here to see what's up. Love the mantle. So great to see someone else that's not shy with color. It was the last photo and the documentation that made me crack up though. Thanks for the laughs. My day was starting our to be one of those " I hate my life" days. So this was good. :0
