Happy Fall… I even decorated!!

Sunflower Swag

As much as I love fall, these past three years I haven’t had the energy to decorate for my favorite time of the year (what a coincidence… Finley is 3).  Since I’ve been spending so much time pining at home decor on Pinterest (if you haven’t checked it out, you MUST) I decided to go crazy and just go for it. 

Scarecrow Decoration 

Emily and I ran out a couple of weeks ago and spent all afternoon picking out just the right decor… scarecrows, hay bales, mums, pumpkins, lanterns, and new swags for the front door.  We picked out a scarecrow for each member of the family (didn’t plan it that way at first and ended up having to go back out and get one more).  The kids had fun picking out which scarecrow represented them. :)

Lanterns are absolutely beautiful!!  I found all four of these at Marshall’s for a total of $50 instead of the $24-$119 price tag on similar lanterns at Pottery Barn.  I was EX.CI.TED to say the least. :)

Lantern Small

This little guy is even solar powered.  I have candles in the other lanterns.  At night time, my front steps make me smile. :)  Wish I had a good picture, put I haven’t been able to get one.
