….I hope! It’s been cool in the mornings so I’m hoping that we’re slipping into fall but you never know with Georgia weather!
At any rate, I felt inspired to start a little fall decorating. I do like to celebrate the change in seasons! What better place to begin than my little foyer. It doesn’t take much to give that space a new feel with a few changes in accessories!
I hot glued some ribbon onto pinecones that I picked up while walking Maxie last year. Those were hung off one of the hooks on my hall tree.
Then I took an old thrift store champagne bucket and spray painted it yellow. I really wanted a brighter yellow but all I had was some soft yellow spray paint. But I think it came out very nice.
I added some faux fall foliage that I bought last year at Michael’s end of season sale. My best tip for decorating on a budget is to have patience, some self-control and buy this year for next! To me, half the fun is in figuring out how to use the things I have in a new way (last year the pinecones were in an apothecary jar). Everything doesn't have to be new every year (I know I'm preaching to the choir)!
I did buy some new ribbon!
I’ve had this green pumpkin for a few years and I added that to the bottom of the hall tree.
Now my foyer is all ready to welcome fall. It didn't take much and it wasn't expensive!
On a personal note, I enjoyed my time away from the computer. It really is a wonderful tool but it's also a colossal time sucker! Anyway, I had a very nice break and I have some news to share later this week (don't you hate when people tease~smile).
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!
