Fall Decor

Seasonally decoration has never been my thing. I just decorate based on how I feel. I don't like my furniture staying in the same position for too long because I get bored. DH would leave to run an errand with the house looking one way and come back to furniture changed. In our early days of marriage, it used to bother him, but he is used to it.

Now that our kids are at the age of having full knowledge of the seasons, they are very interested in us decorating as the seasons change.  I draw the line with Halloween decorations because that is not something I'm in to. I did let them carve pumpkins, (if that's Halloween).

Lately, I'm into recycling containers for other uses. I've used my Talenti ice cream containers for my homemade lotions, and there are many uses for Mason jars. When my favorite grocery store had Starbucks Frappuccino on sale, I bought a bunch for DH. I didn't want all those bottles going to waste, so I used them as my part of my fall décor.
These supplies, and flowers from our farmers market made it possible.
I also updated my worn out cushions with scrapped fabric. I started out using the heat on bonding, but with toddlers, that didn't last long. I ended up sewing the pillow cases. I LOVE how they turned out and I can always change them out with new cases (using scrap material of course).
The last thing I did for fall is take on a $5 thrift challenge from a friend. See what I found here.
