Photos of my fall decore

Here are some of the things I've put up for Fall at our house.....

This is the wreath on our front door, made by my Mom

These are some oversized Acorns I found at A.C. Moore that I have in an antique gold glass bowl on the dinning room table.

I found these pumpkins at Surplus City and I fell in love with them. They have a tiny damask print on them. I currently have them on a side table in our dinning room.

This is our wine glass cabinet with a candle holder that we took the candle out of and added a glass turkey for Thanksgiving.

I think this is my favorite thing out of my fall decorations this year. These are two antique glass mason jars I found at The Plaza and filled them with mini acorns and pumpkins. I had originally wanted to crochet the acorns but they just weren't coming out to the size I wanted, plus we've been so busy lately that I decided to save that idea for another time.
At least now we have some decorations in our house. We are still working on our year round decorations (basically every room has nothing on the walls) but this definitely makes it feel more homey.

It's my favorite time of year...Fall

Fall is my favorite season, I'm so excited it's finally here. I love fall decor, fall fashion, the chill in the air..... I've started to decorate but still have a little to finish up. This year is extra exciting for me to get our fall things out since its the first year we own our own house. This place is so much bigger than our townhouse so there is so much more to decorate.

Until I take photos of what I've done here are some great inspiration/ideas I've found.

These pumpkins are from Pottery Barn, I love clusters of pumpkins on tables.

Acorns are one of my favorite things this fall, I think they look great as a vase filler. These are again from Pottery Barn.

This is from Better Homes and Gardens website, I love the way this wheat looks. This is something I think would look great on our back deck or in long boxes inside on our bay windows.

Mouse Update

I haven't posted in awhile, we've been so busy lately, but I wanted to give an update on our mouse problem. It's been over two weeks and we haven't found any dropping in the house!!! So far we've caught two in the garage but that's it. I'm hoping we've got them all. We are still being super careful about putting things into plastic bins and not leaving anything out so there isn't a place for them to get comfortable.

Milk Glass

I just discovered Milk Glass and how neat it is. I've seen it on a few blogs over the past few weeks and really liked it, so this past weekend a girlfriend, my sister and I hit up our local antique store for the afternoon and I was on the hunt to find some. Where we live we have a great antique store that you never know what you'll find (Ryan and I found a mask made of human hair once--GROSS!), so its a great place to spend an afternoon. They actually had a large selection of Milk Glass, I ended up getting a larger bowl at a great price.

Master Bedroom Work Had Begun

Last night after work I went shopping with my Mom to pick up our new bedding. When I got home last night I couldn't wait to put it on the bed. I think it looks great! Now we just need to get some stuff on our walls. I have some floating shelves to hang and a small print but I want something really unique for above the bed and I just havn't found it yet. So tonight we will hang up what we do have for that room.

Here is the new bedding on the bed
